Walden Soil Testing Project!

Kristen, our Head of Supply, with a little visitor found during a soil test at Mark Faille’s farm in Fort Ann, NY! This spring, we began working with Cornell University on a multi-year project testing the soils of our farm partners. Using GPS coordinates, we will test the same sites year after year to measure the soil improvements created through rotational farming practices. Anecdotally, the presence of earthworms is a great indicator of good soil health as they thrive in areas with high organic matter and good water retention.
