Good Tree Farm's second critical natural resource is water.
Having access to water year-round is critical for our farm. Soon after purchasing the farm, we drilled two 120' wells which guarantee year-round supply of water, even in the driest of summer months.
Our farm is divided almost in half by our stream, which is where rain and snow drain to when they occur. We have installed erosion prevention measures like underground tile-drains, and surface run-off prevention buffer zones to prevent soil erosion into the stream. Coupled with the fact that are soils are clean of pollutants and we do not use pesticides or chemicals of any sort, we are maintaining a stream environment that keeps the stream water clean and protects habitat for all sorts of beneficial insects.
