Aquidneck Farms finds conservation land & sustainability essential
How can a young or beginning farmer afford land, equipment, seed and soil amendments, livestock and feed? Jim Booth, Farm Manager of Aquidneck Farms, runs a sustainable, economically viable livestock farm. “Livestock farming takes a lot of land,” Booth said. “This 12-year-old business couldn’t exist without conserved land.” He spoke highly of his experience working with Aquidneck Land Trust. RI has the most expensive land in the whole country according to the last USDAAgricultural census.
