Here is Gabe Brown’s message for all farmers:
This is the sign down on our ranch’s drive, coming up into our yard.
I want everyone who drives by to know that we’re focused on regenerative agriculture.
Notice I do not say sustainable agriculture.
Our ecosystem on our ranch is degraded.
Why would I want to sustain a degraded resource?
I tell people, I’ve had the good fortune of being on thousands of operations all over the world,
I have never yet been on one that’s not degraded, including my own because when you compare it to what soil scientists say it was 2, 3, 400 years ago, they’re degraded.
Now, people like Colin (Seis) here, are moving in the direction that they’re certainly going to regenerate it to that point, but it can be done,
and we need to do it in order to give future generations the opportunity to be sustainable.
