SweetRoot Farm is a 3-acre farm in Hamilton, MT, that produces eggs, along with a wide range of vegetables, herbs, flowers, and berries. They received a $2,288 grant to purchase cover crop seeds and sprinklers.

Co-owner Mary Bricker told us that they were able to plant two acres of cover crops and purchase irrigation equipment that will be used to water cover-cropped areas and a laying-hen pasture. Bricker said they expect to see increases in soil organic matter, soil condition, and plant-available nitrogen, adding, “We expect our soil tests next summer and fall to show the greatest impact.”
