Regenerative Farming

At Glenlands Farm we see regenerative farming as using animals to improve soils.  Regenerative Agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services, by capturing carbon in soil and above ground biomass.

What is Regenerative Farming?

Grazing Management

Trampled Grass Covering Soil

Pasture Diversity

Cocktail Cropping

Carbon and CO2 as an asset

Overview

Grazing at the top of the pasture growth curve allows full recovery of pastures. The pasture keeps soils covered especially during summer and when wet, and creates an ideal environment for seed germination and seed survival.

By encouraging diversity of grasses, legumes, forbs and even weeds – yes even weeds are diversity, you improve feeding soils while providing food for livestock as well as pollinators, birds and people.

The carbon reserves in your soil are an asset for your farm.  This will help buffer effects from floods and droughts and store nutrients, reducing down stream issues. CO2 is essential for plant nutrient and is not a pollutant.

Animals are a tool you can use to improve pastures as well as destroy them
