Regenerative Agriculture & Grass Fed Cattle 101

Sunday July, 10 2022 9am-1pm

Here are Forrest Green Farm we use the terms “Regenerative Agriculture” and “Beyond Organic” to describe our farming practices. We want to improve our land not harm it. Regenerative Agriculture is farming and grazing practices that can help reverse climate change by rebuilding soil, organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle. While we are not certified organic we have standards that we consider to be beyond organic. We do not use any pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, GMO’s, synthetic fertilizers or fillers for our animals, farm land or plants.

Regenerative agriculture =  holistic land management

Rob has been managing the land and pastures at Forrest Green Farm for 30 years. He believes the land is important to the health of everything; animals, people and the planet. He works with the natural cycles of nature to help the farm thrive.
