Organic Ranch Success Near Hawkins

As some traditional farms and ranches struggle these days with high feed and fertilizer prices, one East Texas ranch has come up with a winning, all natural way to make the fields green.  Just south of Hawkins, Watson Ranch offers an old fashioned way to farming success.  Nurturing his latest fertilizer tea, Brad Watson has found a recipe for success, organics.

"They said I was crazy because I was going against all the chemical companies," said Watson.  "I decided I'd rather use organics rather than chemicals.  It sounded like a better idea to me, and I started using them, and I liked the results, so I started selling them."  With all natural ingredients like molasses, green sand tea and seaweed, the Watson's came up with a liquid fertilizer formula that works and much quicker than traditional fertilizers.  They call it booster max.

"People are seeing results in weeks, rather than months, or years," said Watson.  "We're about a quarter of the cost of one chemical application."  Using booster max on their own property, the Watson's turned brown fields, into lush meadows.

"I love the fact that we're doing something good and for the environment and the animals," said Watson's wife Jeannine.  "I can go to bed at night and feel good about it."

"It helps the environment helps the kids," said Watson.  "It saves our land for future generations."  Their getting lots of business, particularly since organics cost less than traditional.

"People are looking for alternatives they can't afford to stay in business and pay the chemical prices," said Watson.
