Al has helped me immensely with my goals to restore my farms soil health. This spring, I came to Al with one basic question, “how can I make my farm ground pretty and healthy again?”. Though I knew there is no magic pill answer to my question, I was looking for a little direction to get me kickstarted down the right path. His wealth of knowledge served as much more than a kickstart. What I received instead was an absolute blessing of information and help with my specific needs and goals, not just a blanket statement. Al encouraged me to go get a soil sample. I have never pulled a sample for my farm ground before. Since I was a rookie, he walked me through how to pull the soil sample, and offered guidance on how to ship the sample, and what specific tests to ask for. Once the results came back, he went over them with me, showed me specifically what I should be looking for, and how to read the results. As if that wasn’t enough, Al then explained to me what improvements I could be making, how to achieve those improvements by amending and planting, and we now have a solid plan for this growing season. I couldn’t be happier. Al has a true heart of a teacher, and I’m extremely thankful for the time he takes to answer my questions, even the elementary ones. He has taken a goal of mine that once seemed so daunting and turned it into a realistic, and easy plan.
