A video summarizing the farm visit that took place at Lone Willow Ranch with farmer host, John Teixeira, of Firebaugh, CA is available at the You Tube link below. This farm visit was the first in a series of five visits that are hosted by Central Valley farmers as part of this segment of the California Farm Demonstration Network's public education events throughout May and June of 2016. Each visit features a pioneering California farmer talking and sharing information about what his or her general farm and soil care goals are and how they are achieving them. In addition, farm visit participants will have the opportunity to learn about and contribute to actual baseline monitoring related to key soil functions as part of the educational program.
