No-Till Farmer: Steward of the Land

Dan Forgey

Dan Forgey has been growing crops on the Cronin Family Farm for more than 40 years. What he has always loved most about farming is the soil. He believes that if you take care of the land, it will take care of you. His commitment to no-till farming is a reflection of that belief, and Cronin Family Farm has been using no-till management for more than 17 years.

In a related video Forgey explains his no-till methods and use of cover crops in more detail. This video tells more of Forgey’s story, his connection to the land and the community in which he has lived throughout his life.
