Here at Soil Regen, we have been busy bees working on weekly webinars featuring some of our very best colleagues and collaborators. This week we take a pause from our weekly webinar series to bring you tidbits and talks about some of our most favorite events. Did you join us last fall for the 2019 Soil Regen Forum? If not, no worries! Click below to watch the presentations from our speakers.
Gabe Brown WATCH NOW
Regenerative Ag Guru, author of DIRT TO SOIL, and partner in Understanding Ag, LLC. With his wife and son, Gabe owns and operates Brown's Ranch, a diversified 5,000-acre ranch near Bismarck, North Dakota. The Browns practice holistic management, integrating grazing and no-till cropping systems, and grow a wide variety of cash crops, multi-species cover crops along with all-natural, grass-finished beef and lamb. They also raise pastured laying hens, broilers, and swine. This diversity and integration have regenerated the natural resources on the ranch without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or fungicides. The Browns are part owners of a state inspected abattoir which allows them to direct market their products. They believe that healthy soil leads to clean air, clean water, healthy plants, animals, and people.
