Dry Farming

This video is a part of the Water Stewardship video series produced by the Ecological Farming Association. This video features Molino Creek Farm Collective in Davenport, CA.  Joe Curry, farmer and founding member of the collective, discusses the farm’s water efficient method of raising crops—dry-farming—which does not utilize irrigation at all, but instead manages the field’s soil moisture prior to planting.  The dry-farming method saves on water and produces a smaller, more nutrient flavor- rich tomato to be sold at market.
