  • Silvopasture: A Guide to Managing Grazing Animals, Forage Crops, and Trees in a Temperate Farm Ecosystem

    In this book, farmer Steve Gabriel offers examples of diverse current systems that include:

    • A black locust plantation for fence posts coupled with summer grazing pastures for cattle in central New York;
    • Oxen and pigs used to clear forested land in New Hampshire to create space for new market gardens and orchards;
    • Turkeys used for controlling pests and fertilization on a cider orchard and asparagus farm in New York; and
    • Sheep that graze the understory of hybrid chestnut and hickory trees at a nut nursery in Minnesota.

    All of these examples share common goals, components, and philosophies. The systems may take several years to establish, but the long-term benefits include healthier animals and soils, greater yields, and the capacity to sequester atmospheric carbon better than forests or grasslands alone.

    For all these reasons and more, Silvopasture offers farmers an innovative and ecological alternative to conventional grazing practice.

  • The Art & Science of Shepherding

    Far from a nostalgic glimpse into a romanticized lifestyle, this book teaches how this sophisticated art and set of tangible skills has application in modern, North American range/livestock management. Through academic study and analysis and in-depth interviews with master shepherds readers will be amazed by the deep connection between the nutritional need for animals to feed, the powers of observation used by the shepherds to effectively care for and manage large herds, and how the traditional moving of the animals is more fitting to many landscapes than even the most progressive rotational grazing and moveable fencing systems.
