3 Types of Free Resources Available at Acres U.S.A.

As a company that focuses on education, we know that different people learn in different ways. That’s why we have multiple opportunities for farmers, ranchers and growers to interact with our educational material – from books to events to online courses and more – and that includes our free resources as well!

Here are three different types of free resources we have available for farmers, ranchers and growers to learn about eco-agriculture:

1 – Reading Materials

The best thing about reading is that you can do it anywhere these days – on your phone, in the field, in your office – you name it. We have a number of free PDFs available to farmers on a variety of different topics. Download the PDF on your phone, print it out – whatever works best for you. Learn about:

2 – Video materials

Sometimes it’s helpful not only to read about a process, but to see it laid out. Video resources can transport you to the field or the laboratory without you having to move from your office. You can learn about:

3 – Audio Materials

If you want the best of both worlds – audio is the way to go. Part of the growing popularity of podcasts seems to be that you can take them anywhere with you, and they don’t require your eyes. Listen while walking your fields, driving, or waiting in line – whatever suits your schedule best. With Acres U.S.A.’s free audio resources, you can learn about:

4 – Combination!

Why settle for one style when you could get multiple? Luckily we have a few resources to help you in this arena as well. Check out our:

New Farmer Appreciation Kit

To show our appreciation for young and beginning farmers, we put together a set of free downloadable audio resources and a free issue of Acres U.S.A. magazine to help you advance your education and pick up new methods for your farm. Learn more here.

Conventional Farmer Transition Starter Kit

This free kit is to help conventional farmers find a starting place as they transition their operations away from synthetic and toxic technology and into soil health and regenerative practices.

It includes audio lectures on cover crops, soil testing & soil fertility advice from farmers who have already transitioned their farms from toxic chemistry to more natural systems, like Gabe Brown and Klaas Marten. 

As a bonus, enjoy a free April 2020 magazine issue (digital only) that features 100 pages to help you transition your farm, ranch, orchard or greenhouse to a more soil-health focused operation. Learn more here.
