Our programs/practices

Peninsula Pride Farms has zeroed in on a number of best management practices that we support, including through cost sharing with members:

  • Cover cropsA year-round growing crop takes up nitrogen and prevents it from leaching through the soil and down to ground water.
  • Split nitrogen application: Smaller amounts of nitrogen applied to fields more frequently are less likely to penetrate below the growing crop zone.
  • Harvestable buffers around sinkholes: We understand the potential for sinkholes to transport contaminants directly to the aquifer. These buffers serve as filters that capture nutrients and sediment.
  • Measuring depth of soil to bedrockIt is important for a farmer to know the locations of the most sensitive areas of the fields so practices can be adjusted.

QR Codes:
People can learn about some of the positive efforts farmers are undertaking through QR codes.
It is a set of signs that farmers can place along the edge of their fields. Each sign is embedded with a QR code that can be customized.
