What Is Wild Farming?
What are wild farming practices, and what does it look like on the ground?
It is farming in a way that supports and benefits from wild nature.
Doing so results in protecting and restoring natural habitats and creating a strong, resilient agriculture. Our future, and that of millions of other beings, depends on it.
In our video, WFA describes four principles of wild farming that are bringing nature back to our farms.
The four principles of Wild Farming are easy to see:
- Soil is kept covered with plants.
- Flowers are present.
- Native trees and shrubs are part of the farm.
- Wildlife, from bees and birds to larger animals, are present.
