George Washington saw himself as a farmer first and foremost. Agriculture and animal husbandry were important to the way of life at Mount Vernon. Washington was a creative innovator of the agricultural techniques of crop rotation, soil fertilization and livestock management. Mount Vernon continues its role in conservation today as members of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy and fully supports the goal of saving rare domestic breeds.
