About Chemin Faisant

What is sustainable agriculture and how is it related to responsible food production? Agriculture has always been important in human history but it’s become even more significant in recent years as sustainable agriculture has increased in popularity. In fact, in many countries in the world agriculture is the most common form of livelihood. The problem is that factors such as global warming, natural disasters.

Growing popularities have increased the importance of using sustainable agriculture to use land more efficiently and preserve agricultural areas for future generations. Our company is focused on training farmers about what sustainable agriculture is all about, and how they can use it on their own land. This will help to boost their food security for future and preserve the land for use in the future.

Activities and Programs

Sustainable Greenhouses

There’s nothing new about greenhouses and in fact, they’ve been around for eons. What’s different about sustainable greenhouses is that they provide features that aren’t available with traditional versions, or to a lesser extent. There are various benefits these sustainable greenhouses however one of the main goals is water sustainable. The goal is to boost food production while conserving the Earth’s natural resources. Both of these results have a major benefit on a country’s farming so it’s a process that more local farms should consider using as part of their overall approach to sustainable farming.

These greenhouses provide several benefits. They include being affordable, portable, and expandable. They have a low price tag and can be built in a few days. The portability is one of the main features over traditional farms. While farms can also include affordability and expandability they’re to a lesser extent to the larger scale compared the greenhouses. So farmers who want to boost these features on their land should definitely consider using sustainable greenhouses.

Another key benefit of greenhouses is that they can be maintained throughout the year. This is a plus in regions where frigid winters or scorching summers make it impossible to grow plants during certain months each year.

Plant Cultivation

This is yet another way we promote agricultural sustainability on local farms. For example, it can include the growing of rice, mushrooms, and beans on the same farm. This is based on the different growing cycles of the different crops.

For example, several varieties of mushrooms can be grown throughout the year. That allows farmers to pick certain ones based on supply/demand, pricing, and so on. Not only that, but products like mushrooms can provide a return on investments (ROI) in just one quarter or so. That’s quite amazing compared to the ROI of other crops that are much longer.

Cattle Development

Our program also works with farms and ranches in order to use sustainability in terms of their cattle. Cattle can provide many benefits to a farm including plowing, food, milk, income and other benefits. As with farming, it’s advisable to use sustainable ranching in order to produce the best results. In particular, it will help to sustain your cattle population and maximize the effectiveness of the animals.

We even promote a sustainable cycle that involves passing on new offspring of cattle to other farms in the community. This is an effective process in maintaining sustainability in the community.

Human Health

Sustainable farming provides several benefits for humans. In particular, there’s no chemical fertilizers or pesticides used, so people aren’t exposed to such chemicals that are developed in laboratories. Not only that but even when the foods are washed before eating they can still have negative effects on people’s health.

On the other hand, when foods are grown organically they‘re generally healthier for the consumer. That’s because they lack exposure to various chemical pesticides and fertilizers. That results in the foods being higher in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. With certain diseases today such as cancer becoming more prevalent it’s more important than ever for food to be as safe and natural as possible.

Less Energy

Another major benefit of sustainable agriculture is that it’s also better for the environment. When compared to industrialized agriculture it actually produces almost one-third less energy for each unit of crop yield. It’s greatly due to lower use of fossil fuels, which helps to conserve the environment.

When fewer chemicals are released in the environment it benefits the community surrounding the farm. Not only that but it also helps to reduce the amount of total pollution produced by the region and the country as a whole. This is important as the world is generally taking steps to reduce CO2 emissions in both rural and urban areas.

Less Erosion

Another key benefit of sustainable farming is that it helps to reduce the amount of soil degradation and erosion that takes place on the farm. This benefits the area by improving the soil’s quality, which in turn helps to conserve water.

This situation can definitely benefit not only the farm but also the surrounding area. Soil erosion and water conservation are major issues that many of today’s communities are dealing with. This is a plus in regions where frigid winters or scorching summers make it impossible to grow plants. The problem with that situation is it has a negative effect on the total volume of food that a farm can produce during the year.
