An Eco farm is an agricultural system that practices sustainable farming practices. Though similar to organic farming, it is not the same. The two methods are complementary. However, there are some important differences between the two. Here we’ll explore the differences and similarities of ecological farming and organic farming. You may be wondering whether organic and ecological farming are mutually exclusive.

Eco farms grow food that is nutritious and good for the environment. In addition to vegetables, they also harvest honey from beehives, eggs from chickens, and milk from goats. They sell the goat milk, cheese, and yogurt to local households. They also sell vegetables to local customers. Eco farms are kosher, which means that the vegetables and other products grown there are safe to eat and can be eaten in a Jewish home.

In addition to preventing soil erosion, Eco farms can also help to counter climate change by increasing soil organic matter. The amount of organic matter in soil is crucial to its carbon content. Ecological farming practices are a great way to combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Conventional farming practices rely on synthetic fertilizers that shorten the life span of the soil.

The Ecological Farming Association’s office is located in Soquel, CA, a few miles south of Santa Cruz. You can reach the office via car, bus, or bicycle. In case of a COVID-19 pandemic, some work will be done remotely.
