Gabe Brown is one of the pioneers of the soil health movement which focuses on the regeneration of our resources. The ranch, in North Dakota, consists of several thousand acres of native perennial rangeland along with perennial pastureland and cropland. Their ranch focuses on farming and ranching in nature's image.
The Browns holistically integrate their grazing and no-till cropping systems, which include a wide variety of cash crops, multi-species cover crops along with all natural grass finished beef and lamb and laying chickens. This diversity and integration has regenerated the natural resources on the ranch without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and fungicides. They believe that healthy soil leads to clean air, clean water, healthy plants, animals, and people.
Gabe and Brown's Ranch have received many forms of recognition for their work, including the prestigious Heinz Foundation Award for the Environment. He has also received a Growing Green award from the Natural Resource Defense Council, an Environmental Stewardship Award from the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, and a Zero-Till Producer of the Year Award, to name a few. Gabe has also been named one of the twenty-five most influential agricultural leaders in the United States.
Gabe authored the book, “Dirt to Soil, One Family’s Journey Into Regenerative Agriculture.”
He is a partner, along with Kathy Richburg, David Kleinschmidt, Shane New and Dr. Allen Williams, in Understanding Ag LLC.
He is also an instructor for Soil Health Academy, which focuses on teaching others the power and importance of healthy functioning ecosystems.
