At Woodscape we love agriculture and we know our business and lives depend on those who produce our food. So we set a goal to support local farmers. Our first step was partnering with Wild Valley Farms who had a clear vision of sustainable farming and ranching. Because of this partnership we have been able to connect with and help many local farmers. We are helping over 50 farmers and ranchers be more sustainable and profitable and here's how:
One way to support local farmers was to cut cost on products they need. So we provide natural fertilizers and offer field spreading below the cost of commercial fertilizers and spreading. Another cost saver was on animal bedding, so we provide high quality animal bedding for less cost.
We have worked hard to build quality products to bring to the market, with our successes we pay farmers for their by products. For many of these by products they were getting paid nothing, for some of the by products they were paid very little. We hope to continue to increase profitability of farmers!
Working with Soil Conservation we identified farmers who were in need of help cleaning up their manure. We stepped in to work with the farmers in cleaning up their manure piles and pits. This also helps keep our rivers and stream and ground water clean.
We have been working with many different companies to develop organic fertilizers, high protein feeds for animals, and high energy biomass pellets to heat homes with less ash and smoke.
