We know changing farming practices can seem risky. Sometimes, all you need to get started or take the next step is to try that One Good Idea.

One Good Idea is a clearinghouse of videos and podcasts that feature farmers’ ideas and experiences with practices that are helping them improve their soil, land, and bottom lines – such as cover crops, no or low till, rotational grazing, and buffer strips, to name a few. It is where farmers can learn from farmers, and from non-farmer experts too, about how to be profitable and successful with these practices.
