Rows of certified organic potatoes in flower on Beth Hoinacki’s Goodfoot Farm

Winter cover crops are fall planted and incorporated in spring to provide fertility and potatoes are rotated with other crops to help manage soil-borne diseases. In the background, a shed on skids provides mobile shade for the four Babydoll Southdown sheep that graze the headland areas, reducing the need to spend money on fuel and time on the mower.
