Eric Williamson raises cattle, vegetables for processing, and grain crops near George, Washington. In this publication, Williamson discusses how strip-tillage and direct-seeding have greatly reduced erosion, lowered costs, and allowed the farm to double crop at some points in their rotation, growing two back-to-back crops during a single growing season. Meanwhile, integrating beef cattle production into the farm has improved soil health and the farm’s bottom line. This case study is part of the Farmer-to-Farmer Case Study project, which explores innovative approaches regional farmers are using that may increase their resilience in the face of a changing climate.
