Innovations happening at the farm include reduced tillage, nutrient management, pollinator and grass strips, constructed wetlands, terraces and other practices that help slow the water down!

Reduced tillage helps to maintain soil structure, improve water infiltration.

Cover crops can be used to break up compaction, fix nitrogen in soil, and prevent erosion.

These buffers direct water to appropriate outlets without causing erosion.

Retaining runoff from fields, wetlands help to slow & filter water before it enters nearby streams and rivers.

Innovations at Huronview include: Contour Tiling, Control Gates, Pattern Tiling at different spacing, Wetlands, and Diversion Terraces.
