KNF Advanced Swine Training

No smell pigs are hot topics right now. Imagine raising hogs with no cleaning, no smell, no flies, no vaccines and no antibiotics! I went to Korea in 2017 to attend KNF Advanced Swine Training for 5 days in Gokseong County to learn the secrets of this biological technology.

This course has a lot of classroom sessions to understand the Korean Natural Farming philosophy, principles and solutions for raising hogs. To spread this vital information to the world I videoed the entire trip and publishing it here to remain open source.

The last of the videos in this playlist contain the information about the pig nutritional cycle. Cho talks about how and when to feed sows to support them for optimal natural growth. If you want your sows to have many pigs and be able to provide nutritious milk, check these out for sure.

Master Cho Advanced KNF Lecture Series

Master Han-Kyu CHO, founder of korean natural farming, visited Hawai’i in March of 2018 to deliver his teachings. He goes over advanced techniques for cultivating IMO (indigenous micro organisms) as well as other key recipes like OHN (medicine), FPJ (food), etc.

Advanced Farm Tours with Master Cho 2018 Hawaii

Perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity of Advanced Farm Tours with Master Cho in Hawaii. Watch the founder of Korean Natural Farming identify and diagnose a variety of plants and issues. By seeing him in action, the nack of his mastery shines.

Now that you’ve made all the Korean Natural Farming solutions, how do you combine and use them? This video talks about the subtle ways to assist plant growth and maximize the ability to grow in harmony with nature!

Using the chart here and scaling it up for the correct volume and you are good to go.

Premixing what we call the “Maintenance Solution” of 1 part OHN, 2 parts BRV and 2 parts FPJ, then adding that as a base of 20 mL per gallon, can really simplify the amount of jars you have to open to make a simple mixture.

And here is Master CHO talking on the subject

A quick guide to using Korean Natural Farming Solutions

2016 Korean Natural Farm Tour

I was able to visit with Cho Young-San and Master Cho Han-Kyu in October 2016. We visited a lot of operational and test farms implementing different degrees of Korean Natural Farming.

I brought along my ipad and captured as much video of the operations as I could. Below is the playlist (meaning multiple videos) of them on youtube.

Natural Farming Solutions

August 2015 Natural Farming Hawai’i Meeting in Hilo. Natural Farming Solutions was the topic discussed and the Maintenance solution recipe was given as 1 part OHN, 2 parts FPJ and 2 parts Vinegar (Banana preferred) combined, then diluted 20mL per gallon of water and sprayed every 7-11 days on plants optimally around sunset or used as a drench to clean up pollutants by revitalizing beneficial soil micro biology.

Micro Biology of IMO Natural Farming

Our June 2015 meeting covered microscopic soil analysis of indigenous micro organisms, IMO. We discovered and identified bacteria, fungus and nematodes. I brought in my 400x microscope to easily evaluate soil fertility based on biology. We recorded this lesson on how to use a microscope to validate your natural farming.

nfscience.008We are essentially looking for beneficial fungus. Aerobic, oxygen loving, soil building life forms, beneficial fungus, can be identified by looking for ‘tubes’ greater than 3.5 micrometers wide and darker in color. There should be one beneficial fungus per view when soil is around 600:600 bacteria:fungus ratio, ideal for most crops.

Identifying this beneficial fungus is a key indicator of natural farming success. The idea is to get these organisms to dwell deep within our soil. Bringing life and oxygen deep into the Earth and allowing plants lots of room to grow roots. Beneficial fungus harbor beneficial bacteria and healthy levels of nematodes. Good thing they are easy to see and increase with natural farming solutions!
