KYLE PLATT & FAMILY
Located in Uniontown, Alabama, Kyle Platt and his family have built and maintained soil health through the use of no-till, bio-intensive, human-intensive growing methods. Alongside their no-till practices, they use animals, compost, and cover cropping to impact and keep their soils constantly active. Their market garden has been growing food for local communities since January 2018, including: A 100 member CSA, restaurant sales, and local Farmer’s Markets.
Grant support would allow them to broaden their apprenticeship program to train new farmers before they went on to start their own farm using regenerative practices. They intend to expose new farmers to small scale agriculture and pass on efficiencies without the debt of heavy machinery that often leaves soils exposed and vulnerable.
“Beautiful food from an earnest and knowledgable farmer.”
