Promoting reflective farming practices
Farmers do not leave with a finished or definitive piece of kit. All tools and machinery disseminated by Atelier Paysan are models to work from. Every farmer must appropriate and adapt it to his/her context, soil and cultivation practices. A hand fork is essential to inspect the soil before passing with a piece of machinery and then again afterwards, to check the impact the machinery has had, adjusting or modifying it in response to what’s been observed.
