Acres U.S.A. is the only national magazine that offers a comprehensive guide to sustainable agriculture. Drawing on knowledge accumulated in more than 40 years of continuous publication, we bring our readers the latest techniques for growing bountiful, nutritious crops and healthy, vibrant livestock. A glance at any issue is enough to see why sustainable farming — we call it “eco-agriculture” because it's both ecological and economical — represents the real revolution in scientific food cultivation.
Based on the work of scientists and farmers whose sophisticated approach to agriculture reveals chemical farming as obsolete and misguided, Acres U.S.A. shows its readers how to embrace the science of nature. Rather than batter nature into submission with bizarre chemistry that short-circuits natural processes, sustainable farmers feed the soil and bring it into balance. They gently coax nature into yielding her bounty, and they are rewarded with superior crops and lower input costs. Acres U.S.A. has helped thousands of farmers feed the nation’s growing appetite for clean, delicious food and make a profit while they’re at it. Farmers who practice eco-agriculture don't need enormous bank loans to float the cost of expensive chemical inputs and excessively complex equipment.
Our readers rely on the information they find in Acres U.S.A. Most of every issue is written by people who practice what they preach — farmers, ranchers, consultants, vets and researchers with years of experience in the science of sustainable farming. A typical article doesn't spend a lot of time on theory. Instead you will find practical, hands-on information you can immediately put to work on your farm or garden.
Ideas, Issues & Advice
Acres U.S.A. was founded on the belief that the world did not begin in 1948, when the research and development bonanza of World War II combined with a flood of special interest money to create a new kind of agriculture, based on petrochemical inputs. Nor did the world of scientific farming, attuned to nature, stop dead in its tracks. In fact, much of the best work in sustainable technology was just beginning. Readers of Acres U.S.A. reap the harvest of courageous innovators who have sidestepped the Ag Establishment for decades.
