Word from the Farm: The Benefits of Beneficials

Whether you are planting a backyard garden or establishing a field, there are two things you must think about – beneficial plants and beneficial insects.

Also called insectaries, beneficial plants are varieties that attract and invite a diversity of beneficial insects.
