Saying Goodbye to a Visionary Farmer
It is with deep sadness that we write about the passing earlier this month of Chase Ridgely III. Chase was an adviser to the Fair Farms campaign with a deep passion for sustainable agriculture. Chase was an active and vocal proponent of holistic farm management and holistic planned cropping, which he employed on his own farm in Howard County. Chase felt that farmers adopting these practices would make more money, and produce dramatic results in sequestering carbon and restoring the environment. Fair Farms will miss Chase and will do our best to continue his important work.
