How about this?
We Do It..... NATURALLY.
At our sustainable and socially responsible farms we do much of what other farmers do with chemicals and we do it ..... NATURALLY.
Real World examples:
1.We control flies not with poisons and chemicals but with other flies.We buy fly predators from Spalding Labs and release them into the environment.These predator flies quite naturally control our fly population.
2.We control predators (like coyotes) not with poiosons but with our own Great Pyrenese Guard Dogs! Our goard dogs protect our sheep cost effectively and well.We just added a new bitch to our breeding program tonight, these dogs are of real value!
3.We enrich our soils not by spreading chemical fertilizers but by spreading manure and limestone on our fields.We will be spreading manure starting next week and will cover all of our fields with it before Winter assuring us of enriched soils and bountiful crops in 2010!
We do it better and .....NATURALLY!
