Healthy Soils Week — a look at cover cropping and livestock grazing in regenerative viticulture

In coordination with Healthy Soils Week and World Soil Day, the Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) conducted an on-site event today at the LangeTwins Family Winery and Vineyard in Acampo, San Joaquin County. Sponsored by CDFA’s Biologically Integrated Farming Systems Programs (BIFS) program, the event included expert perspectives on cover cropping and integrated livestock grazing in vineyards as part of a systems approach to land management.

Approximately 70 participants joined in the field tour, gaining a firsthand view of how animal grazing and cover crops are helping to provide important ecosystem services to sustain healthy soils practices at a vineyard.
