About Gabe Brown:
Gabe Brown is one of the pioneers of the current soil-health movement and has been named one of the twenty-five most influential agricultural leaders in the United States.
Brown, his wife, Shelly, and son, Paul, own Brown’s Ranch, a holistic, diversified 5,000-acre farm and ranch near Bismarck, North Dakota.
The Browns holistically integrated 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. They also raise pastured laying hens, broilers and swine. This diversity and integration have regenerated the natural resources on the ranch without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides. Gabe and the Brown’s Ranch have received many forms of recognition for their work.
Gabe is an instructor for Soil health Academy, which focuses on teaching others the power and importance of healthy functioning ecosystems.
Gabe recently authored the book, “Dirt to Soil, One Family’s Journey Into Regenerative Agriculture.”
