Third-generation farmer Brendon Rockey will explain how past destructive farming practices and drought were catalysts for adopting his biotic farming methods. The Rockey Farms journey includes the development of a systematic approach founded on carbon cycling and water efficiency, and demonstrate how synthetic inputs and the absence of life break down soil resiliency and, in turn, how a biological farming system supports not only soil health, but the farm’s overall health.
Brendon Rockey is a third-generation farmer in Center, Colorado. On Rockey Farms, he raises specialty potatoes and quinoa among fields of green manure, all cultivated in a living environment, including companion crops, animals, cover crops and flowers replace synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides.
