Growing food in undisturbed soil is nature's model for success and a core concept of sustainable farming. No-till practices and plant diversity preserve soil structure, increase water absorption, reduce erosion, and allow microscopic life to flourish.

Learn how you can use this intensive approach to vegetable farming to increase production while maintaining a human-scale operation, with fields, tools, and methods sized for people rather than tractors and machinery.

In this in-depth manual, Daniel Mays shares his proven strategies for operating a thriving, no-till, small-scale commercial farm, including how to:

- Maximize production and efficiency through soil health and biodiversity
- Maintain a weed-free farm
- Integrate cover crops and livestock
- Increase resilience through interplanting, hedgerows, and beneficial insect habitat
- Build community and a vibrant customer base
- Make a good living from farming.
