At Barkley, being a proper steward of the environment and the land has been at the core of what we have done long before “going green” became a popular phrase. Through proper management and vigilant watch, Barkley has been able to farm much of the same ground in the Yuma, Dome and Wellton-Mohawk Valleys for more than 100 years. In order to accomplish this, Barkley has implemented new and innovative technologies to further reduce fuel consumption from tractors. Irrigation management practices that reduce or minimize the use of water have been addressed and implemented, thus allowing less demand on our valuable water system.
Our family roots run deep in farming tradition. It is our continued hope that future generations can continue farming the land that our great-grandfathers did. We know that we can accomplish this task only by leaving our land better cared for than we found it. Through the continued implementation of enhanced green technology and science, we know it will be done.
