We have been out on the CSA field taking soil core samples down to 3 ft deep.  Good soil structure can be developed over time on any land, however great soil texture can assist in developing soil structure rapidly.  We were delighted to find excellent soil texture with seams of both clay and sand, offering the best in drainage and drought resistance. Fertility is something we’ll be building on as the project moves forward, but after decades of low impact grazing on the land we have diverse soil life to get growing well underway.  Overall we couldn’t be happier with the soil sampling results.
