Derek and Tannis are grain farmers from Minton, Saskatchewan with a passion for improving their greatest resource...soil!
Derek and Tanis operate a no-till farm and have improved their soil health by seeding intercrops, companion crops and cover crops. Increasing their plant diversity and intensity is feeding the soil biology, which in turn is regenerating the land. Improving soil health has allowed them to resude synthetic inputs, increase water retention and build organic matter. They have also implemented controlled traffic farming and grazing into their farming system.
Derek and Tanis are excited about what they are doing on their farm and will have many ideas they plan to try. Derek enjoys sharing their successes and failures with others througout Western Canada and the United States, with the hopes of inspiring others to regnerate their farm's soil health.
