Our families of farmers have all lived in the Klamath Basin for generations which has resulted in a legacy of love for the land and the wildlife that inhabit it.
There are many ways our farmers use their resources to benefit the environment. Over the winter after the fields have been harvested, the remnants of their crops feed migrating waterfowl. In collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, our farmers use the walking wetland rotation to farm organic crops. The farmers who grow wheat on these lands leave one quarter of the yields for birds to consume.
Another way our farmers have given back to our ecosystem is by intentionally flooding fields to become a temporary wetland for wildlife. The video below, which was produced when some of our farmers from Staunton Farms won an award for Environmental Stewardship, explains this process.
