Evergreen Farming INC

Description

The Evergreen Farming group has a vision of “green farms all year round”. Profitable perennial pastures and fodder shrubs are the tools to achieve this, either on their own or as companions to successful annual pasture systems. Evergreen Farming members are planting thousands of hectares of perennial pastures each year, with many also having great success with pasture cropping. This involves planting winter crops into existing perennial pastures, which is producing some exciting results.
