Like many farmers, Doug Young and his family at Spruce Haven Farm are intrigued by sustainability. How can we, as farmers, “take what is given and manage it the best that we can.” Some days that’s easier said than done. Other times, it takes serious ingenuity and technology to help achieve the end goal. But all the while, farmers are learning. Farmers are eternal students, ever learning more about how to be better caretakers and better stewards of the land – and Doug is no different.

“Our job as farmers is recycle, capture and reuse those resources over and over again so that we get the most production possible and the least amount of losses into the environment.” Learn about some of the methods Doug is using to ensure a high rate of success and long term sustainability on his family farm.
