From conventional beginnings to regenerative transformation
Covert Farms started as a conventional farm, cultivating tomatoes and onions on their 650 acres of fertile land. However, eighteen years ago, they decided it was time to practice what they preach and start growing their product organically—a momentous decision which led to adopting regenerative farming ten years later.
“We wanted our product and how we grow it to reflect what we believe in,” says Shelly Covert, proprietor of Covert Farms.
Embracing five fundamental principles—keeping the ground covered, maintaining a living root, diversification, abstaining from soil tillage and incorporating animals for natural fertilizer—the Covert family carved a path towards sustainable and holistic agricultural practices.
“It just resonated with us.”
