At our Nutrilite farms we take our soil health very seriously. It’s a crucial component of organic farming. One way we do this is through composting. We test our compost for nutrient analysis and apply it at specific times during the season to get maximum benefit. At our Trout Lake Farm, that happens twice a year.
When we drop compost on the fields, it must be worked into the soil within a couple hours, otherwise the nutrients will evaporate and the compost will lose its strength. We use a synchronized process with two GPS-controlled tractors – one dropping the compost, the other following behind tilling it in.
Organic has been a way of life for us long before the term existed, including using compost in our soil.
We were composting in the fifties, as you can see in the top photo taken from our archives. We are composting today: The second photo was taken recently at Trout Lake.
And, we will continue our organic farming and composting practices long into the future – it’s part of our legacy.
Feeding the soil natural materials to yield the healthiest plants is just one way that Nutrilite maintains control of the process — from seed to supplement.
