Love for the Chisel Plow

We don’t mince words. We love our chisel plow. After you watch this video of the chisel plow at work in the south field, you may start having feelings for it to. Thank you, Mike Hardy, for taking such great footage.

A chisel plow is used to loosen hard soil generally before using another implement or type of plow. The video shows the farm team using the chisel plow in the first step towards cultivating the south field. Using the chisel plow is the first step in using farming methods that combat moisture loss and soil erosion. It stirs but does not pulverize. It leaves what it pulls up on top of the soil.

If, after watching this video, you are pining for more, head over to the Rockland Farm Alliance site for a new blog post about cover crops, in response to Dan Barber’s Op Ed piece in the Sunday NY Times here.
