Herbivores are amazing animals. When well-managed, they have the unique power to make grasslands more productive and increase the carbon-sequestering power of the soil. They are the ultimate carbon and mineral cyclers and our farm’s fertility increases because of their work.

// the future // . . . What does it hold for us? As I ponder this over looking the rolling green hills of Byron bay - Will we still have this beautiful productive land available for our food production in the future... . . . If you have ever watched David Attenborough’s series on planet earth & the episode on ‘Grass land planes’, you will be educated that grass is one of the most resilient, productive, sustainable sources of energy on the planet & covers more land than anything else. It feeds millions of animals that graze on it every year & with these animals’ reciprocal help it draws carbon from the atmosphere & pulls it into the soil. When we mimic this natural grazing method in farming cattle etc we do the same & produce the most nutritious source of human energy, (other than water) beef or protein & fat. . . . We can then argue that grass fed & finished beef nourishes humans & the earth. . . . We ALL have the power to vote with our dollar, because these big corporations can not survive with out it...every time you purchase something ask these questions. . . . ✅ how will it effect me? ✅ how will it effect the planet 🌏? ✅ how will it effect the future? . . . #byronbay #votewithyourdollar #byronbayhinterland #bangalow #grassfinishedbeef #grassfed #grasslands #holisticmanagement #savoryinstitute #joelsalatin #carbonsequestration #farms #organic #organicfood #buylocal #lennoxhead #northernrivers #byronbaylighthouse #dontgovegan #holistichealth #holisticnutrition #nutrition #osteopathystudent #love

I’m offering a free consultation session on organic invasive species management to someone who comments below. Tell me about your site and situation and I’ll choose a lucky winner on Saturday. It could be either an in person or remote consultation - so tag your friends who might be interested even if you’re outside of Oregon. Could be a great holiday gift as well! Video above is of our camas patch that was once a 6 foot tall wall of blackberries. With well timed grazing and mowing, the camas is thriving! I’d love to help you make a plan for your invasive species of concern. #beyondthewaroninvasivespecies #invasivespecies #consultation #holisticmanagement #noherbicide #giveaway #tellmeyourproblems

How often do you get down and dig in your soil? How does it smell? How does it taste? Is it alive? Is it thriving? Is there enough moisture? Can you improve the organic matter? _____ Photo: @tttaylornicoleee

A great part of self-sufficiency is to keep the expenses at a minimum. This can be achieved by learning new skills. With three boys in our household, we found it important for Maiken to learn a gentleman’s cut. Besides a small investment in a professional set of scissors, it only took a few hours of YouTubing and James and Leonardo being willing to let her practice on them 😀 • • • #earthship #permaculture #keylinedesign #holisticmanagement #easyliving #marketgarden #smallfarm #nodebt #freeliving #minimalism #nothingisordinary #getoutside #woodsman #offgrid #offgridlife #offgridliving #offgridfarms #offgridhomestead #homesteadliving #permacultureliving #foodforest #foodforests #forestfood #forestgarden #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife

When is it the proper time to include your children in your Daily work? Leonardo is 2.5 years old and helps with everything he finds interesting, e.g. laundry, cooking, vacuuming, and cleaving firewood. Napoleon is still too young 😉 But he finds it very interesting to watch. In this way most of the family is included as we do our daily chores. That makes it much more joyful and is a great example of why we moved out into the forest. • • • #earthship #permaculture #keylinedesign #holisticmanagement #easyliving #marketgarden #smallfarm #nodebt #freeliving #minimalism #nothingisordinary #getoutside #woodsman #offgrid #offgridlife #offgridliving #offgridfarms #offgridhomestead #homesteadliving #permacultureliving #foodforest #foodforests #forestfood #forestgarden #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife

An old saying goes: A sharp mind is using sharp tools. You can save much energy while working, and a sharpened tool lasts longer. Once little nicks appears on the edge, it quickly worsens. It can take some time to establish a new edge on an old worn tool, but once done, it doesn’t take much to maintain. A normal axe has an ankle of 30 degrees. We use a wed grinder with stones of grit 250, 1000 and 4000 respectively. For an axe with an ordinary purpose, it is perfectly fine to end the grinding at grit 1000, but if it is supposed to be used as a tomato knife, a stone of grit 4000 is a necessity 😉 Is grinding to you something you never do, a tiresome task that you must get it over and done with or simply meditation with tools? • • • #earthship #permaculture #keylinedesign #holisticmanagement #easyliving #marketgarden #smallfarm #nodebt #freeliving #minimalism #axe #getoutside #woodsman #offgrid #offgridlife #offgridliving #offgridfarms #offgridhomestead #homesteadliving #permacultureliving #foodforest #foodforests #forestfood #forestgarden #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife

A little bit of interesting information on why our Governments and Institutions will never succeed in addressing the actual cause of climate change unless the public insists on change... We never deal with major issues as individuals, but always through our organisations, or institutions. We form organizations because it is the most efficient way to do many things. However, once formed, organizations take on a life of their own. They do not behave as an individual human would behave. Even when an organization murders thousands of people, it is not tried for murder, as you or I would be. Nor is any executive punished severely, no matter how much damage any organization has done, to humanity, our economy, or our environment. There are 3 organisational 'wicked' problems, which are resulting in the institutional log jam, that’s endangering humanity: 1. While organizations lead with any development aligned to society’s beliefs, they also lead any ridicule or opposition to new insights that are counter-intuitive, or paradigm-shifting (nothing has changed since Galileo!) No amount of facts, evidence, data, or number of lives lost, make any difference to organizations. They only accept the new insights when a significant shift in the public mind occurs. For this to happen, it can take a century or more, as we saw with the 200 years it took the British Navy to accept lime juice could end scurvy, despite its importance to Britain and over a million sailors dying. 2. No matter how good, or intelligent, the people in any organization are, the outcome is often lacking commonsense and humanity. Once aware of this problem, it is incredible how widespread it is. For example, ask any person if it makes sense for America to produce oil, to produce corn, to produce fuel. People laugh and say this is clearly stupid – but our institutions do it! 3. Organizations seldom admit error. Rather, they circle the wagons and defend the organization, even when it goes entirely against their very mission. Think of the Catholic church and how they protected the pedophile priests. #holisticmanagement #climatechange #thefutureisinourhands #institutionsmustchange #agriculturalpolicy

Pretty even manure distribution out in the bale grazing. ✨ We have moved them to 4 new rows so far and they will be moved again this afternoon. ✨ I am so excited to see how well this field grows this upcoming year. It is one of the worst fields we have, so a big dose of natural fertilizer will do it good! ✨ Do you measure or keep track of your field conditions every year? How about have soil or feed tests done yearly? ✨ We never used to but since taking #holisticmanagement we sure do! It’s so neat to see year to year how we are improving the land as well as the condition of our cattle. ✨ What do you use to keep track? A spreadsheet? An app? Good old pen & paper? I want to know! We are always trying to improve our record keeping so it’s nice to hear what works for other farms! 👨‍🌾 . . . #armstrongacres #hm #holisticmanagement #balegrazing #naturalfertilizer #soilbuilding #improvingtheland #alwayslearnig #cattle #cowsofig #albertafarm #alberta #knowyourfarmer

Let’s be a community that goes beyond platitudes and the latest diet fad that is monopolizing the book section at Costco. Let’s do it because the state of our food system and health requires us to dig a bit deeper than good branding and social media. Let’s do it because we really want to take care of the earth for future generations. And we know it's on each of us to do a little bit of homework about where our food comes from... ✨🐂🌱🐓🐑🐂🌱🐓🐑🐂🌱🐓✨ What if we start by connecting? With farms and farmers that are beyond organic and care so deeply that they take the time to explain why some things that have been said so often that they are accepted as true, are, maybe not... Soundbite-Ish clips like, eating meat is universally unsustainable... But as farmer Lydia from Luna Field Farm​ says: "….I realize that work must be done to improve our food system but the message needs to be, "eat from your foodshed, learn about agriculture, support your local ecosystem”. “To suggest that prairie people ought to eat more peanuts and less beef is absurd really. Find a farmer, walk the pasture, ask about their management practices.” 💥🐂👏🙌🏻 YEEEESSS I *also* challenge you to get curious. Connect with a farmer near you. One that is passionately committed to their craft and uses sustainable and regenerative practices. Do you know of a farmer, organization or account doing great work in sustainable, regenerative agriculture, holistic management or permaculture? Tag ‘em and give them some love 💕! • • • #doitfortheearth 🌎 #geteducated #localfood #knowyourfarmer #doitforourkids #nutrition #itsallconnected #traditionalfoods #ancestralhealth #soilhealth #egenerativeagriculture #holisticmanagement #pastured #knowyourfarmer #traditionalwisdommodernkitchen #guthealth 📸 @lunafieldfarm

Is your body telling you to slow down but your mind is go, go, go? . This use to be me. I was constantly on the go and rarely allowed myself to slow down. . Eventually this lifestyle caught up with me and I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue which was causing panic attacks and heart palpitations. . This weekend I was reminded how far I've come and how much more connected I am to my body. . I did a yin yoga teacher training. This was a type of yoga I would have previously disregarded because it wasn't strenuous and too slow. . I've now learned how essential meditation and slowing down it. I've been able to overcome adrenal fatigue and panic attacks by slowing down and striving less. . If these are things you're struggling with comment below or DM me.

One of the most important tasks of permaculture is to build up soil. One way to do this is by moulching. In this video, we will cover the soil with dead leaves in a bed of herbs. However, the primary benefit for us is that it protects the plants from the brutal winter conditions that we sometimes encounter here in Sweden. What do you use for moulching and ground cover in your beds? • • • #earthship #permaculture #keylinedesign #holisticmanagement #easyliving #marketgarden #smallfarm #nodebt #freeliving #minimalism #nothingisordinary #getoutside #woodsman #offgrid #offgridlife #offgridliving #offgridfarms #offgridhomestead #homesteadliving #permacultureliving #foodforest #foodforests #forestfood #forestgarden #permaculturegarden #permaculturedesign #permaculturefarm #permaculturelife

Wake up people! Our Institutions and Governments are literally killing us. Until they start to form National Holistic Policies, we don’t have a future. You no longer have the luxury of sitting back expecting someone else to do it...get off your butt and make a difference for your future. These are the last few lines of my next children’s book: “Children, adults, grans, dads and mums Every one of you needs to get off your bums! Stop burying your heads in the sand, that’s absurd! Get up, get out there and help spread the word. Every one of us is in the same boat And we all need to help to keep it afloat I'd like to ask you what your children will think If you sit back, do nothing…….and just let this boat sink? Think of the earth like the Titanic of today... We're approaching the iceburg – hit it or steer away?” ©️Sarah Savory @leonardodicaprio @iansomerhalder #holisticmanagement #climatechange #wehavetoactnow #educationiskey #iwantmychildrentohaveafuture #wakeupworld #regenerate #healthysoils #healthyrivers #nomoreclimatechange

#24days. Can we save the world with livestock? Yes – says Allan Savory. https://www.ted.com/talks/allan_savory_how_to_green_the_world_s_deserts_and_reverse_climate_change This is not a doomsday talk, but one that provides hope for the future! We invite you all to watch this inspiring and humble TED talk by Allan Savoury, who shares the very same obsession as us: stopping #desertification. Allan Savoury made important breakthroughs in understanding the degradation of grassland ecosystems – a long-ignored component of earth's lungs. In the 1960's he observed how elephants moved across the savannah in large, tightly packed groups that didn't return to the same grass until it had fully recuperated. From this he invited the systems thinking approach 'Holistic Managment', a way to manage animals that mimic their natural behaviors, helping degraded ecosystems regenerate due to the beneficial impact of animals on the land. Today Holistic Management is proposed as a value-based decision-making framework that integrates all aspects of planning for social, economic, and environmental considerations. What is your take on it? Have you seen Holistic Management being used and creating outstanding results? 👇 #SaveTheGrass #HolisticManagement

These are the last tomatoes of this year. When tomatoes are in abundance, it is nice to have a great way to preserve them. In this video, we show you how we dehydrate them until semi-dried. We prefer to do it this way in order to enrich the lovely sweetness of these little tomatoes. We conserve them in olive oil and add some thyme for flavor.

“Words fail me how fucking ignorant you are. You are taking a life. The pig is a sentient being, with intelligence. Far more than you have. How proud can you be about murder, you are eating a corpse. Not to mention the global problems animal agriculture is causing to our planet. All the information at your fingertips and you are still stupid and immoral” This is just one of the messages I received after butchering my pigs earlier this year. This was the first pig I butchered, the biggest of the three, and by nature she was the bolshiest - always first to the food.I don’t believe that trying something out for yourself makes you ignorant. It’s only by trying new things that we can start to change our mind, see the differences, perhaps hold contrary views and try to navigate our way through them. Along the way in this journey I’ve met some amazing people who have changed their minds too. Animal agriculture is not causing destruction to our planet. It is the way in which many of these animals are being ‘farmed’ that is causing us issues. Animals can be part of the solution. Perhaps we just need to continue to open our minds and stop trying to look for a one-size-fits-all solution.

These little guys have been bringing me so much joy this week. They were released into the herd and moved onto once a day milk feeds. We like to run our cattle as one mob - it allows our grasses to have a longer recovery period between grazings, reduces my workload moving cattle every day & it is more natural for them. Cattle are herd animals. These little guys are getting used to following the herd and finding their place. Many times we have watched the herd walk back to their paddock from the water trough & then see two little black calves flying along to catch up 5 minutes later - they are just sitting, chewing their cuds, unaware that the herd have moved on. They'll pick up the cues soon enough. They followed me home for their milk feed the first morning & have been waiting for me at the cattle yards each morning ever since. Cattle are incredibly clever animals & it doesn't take them long at all to get with the routine. Nice & gentle is the way we do it here. I have been going down to check on them regularly as they settle in, as I do......But this week it has been a really good thing for me - to watch them doing their thing, munching on grass, chewing their cuds (oh it sooo cute!!). It brings a huge smile to my face. You see I am in that pre-Christmas place of overwhelm and I am finding it harder managing Christmas and all of the extra activities & expectations than I have before. Farm life is just...so....busy... this time of year. And it has been a very hard year. The exhaustion, combined with the need to continue is very hard to explain, but one that farmers are very familiar with. It all comes together, as it always does, it just gets a bit messy for a while in between. The Northern Hemisphere guys have got it right! They do Christmas in their quieter farming period. How are you going in the lead up to Christmas this year? Does it excite you or overwhelm you just a tad? Would love to hear how you are going too. V xx

At our current location, we are so lucky to have an earth cellar, where we can store our homemade goods cold and frost free all year round. If you are about to establish your own earth cellar, remember to make the entrance facing north - if your location is at the northern hemisphere. If one already exist and the entrance is facing south, you can make a double door and paint the outer door white, to reflect more of the solar energy. At our building site, we are currently digging out for a huge north facing earth cellar. We expect an average temperature of approximately 4 degrees Celsius.

The greatest danger today is not climate change, but institutional stupidity causing it. While individuals in corporations are generally good and well-meaning, as soon as you form an organization, it takes on a life of its own and it is common for the outcomes to be lacking in common-sense and humanity. Right now, these institutions and governments hold our future in their hands and their solutions are completely off the mark and will waste more precious time, which we simply cannot afford... The World Bank states, "People are losing their lives and livelihoods because of the disastrous effects of climate change.” They then state what every sensible person knows, that we must fight the cause. And then NOT $1 out of $200 BILLION will be spent addressing the cause of both global desertification and climate change! If the World Bank spent less than 5% of that money on addressing the cause, which is without any shadow of a doubt our reductionist management, we would see a different world, offering hope for billions of people. While our institutions blame livestock, coal and oil for desertification and climate change, these are resources and can never cause a problem. It is 100% certain that it is the way we manage those resources that is causing climate change. No act of nature, or anything else, is causing our problems. So the issue today is how on earth do we get the media and public to wake up and start insisting we address the cause of our problems, not the symptoms? @leonardodicaprio @iansomerhalder #holisticmanagement #wakeupworld #ourfuturedependsonit #educationiskey #publicopinionhastoshift #healthysoil #regeneratetheworld

La agricultura regenerativa llegó por necesidad y para quedarse. Hace algunos días compartimos con @alerce3000 nuestro trabajo, fruto de un exhaustivo régimen de pastoreo, sustentable, sin fertilizantes ni agroquimicos, sin hormonas, vimos como se produce la carne cuando se lee el entorno y se respeta los plazos, la tierra se regenera. Lote de novillos pastando. Carga instantánea de 200 animales por 1/2 hectárea, al día. Segundo pastoreo de la temporada con un plazo de reposo de 60 días.

With rainbow chard as glorious as this it's proving impossible to keep little helpers out of the kitchen - one of the things I love about kids in the kitchen is that they tend to tuck into meals they've prepped themselves with great gusto. Things I don't like? The mess, the clean up, and did I mention the mess? We'll be at the @taurangafarmersmarket tomorrow in our new red double gazebo. As well as this beautiful chard we have a full range of large leafy greens, parsley and beets are making a come back, radishes, fennel, buy-one-get-one salad turnips, broccolini, first of the season's zucchini, microgreens, lettuce and salad mix with fill-your-own available.

Every farm is different. And milestones on different farms are also different. Our farm marked a big milestone today. We bought a new tractor. It was a big decision and after many sleepless nights wrestling with the decision, we are so happy the big day is finally here. We started our farm business together 5 years ago on family land and enough savings to get through the winter. We poured every cent we earned back into the business, adding the necessary infrastructure piece by piece. We hustled and scraped and paid for things in cash, being careful not to go into debt. Since our first winter, when we first sat down to write our holistic goals for our farm, our business, and our lives, we have endeavored to make a living (ie be able to pay ourselves for our work) growing nutritious, delicious, and radically ecological food for our surrounding community. Debt seemed like something that would detract from our main goals. But as the years have sped by and we’ve invested in the various parts of the farm, it has become increasingly obvious we needed to invest in the farm on a different level. This summer we upgraded our old beater truck (whose 4x4, wipers, or interior lights wouldn’t work if it was raining or had just rained) to a much more reliable farm truck that will not leave us or our animals stranded on the side of the road. And today we took the giant leap of getting a new tractor. we couldn’t be more excited - or nervous- for what the future holds! #wegotourselvesatractor #youngfarmers #wereinitnow #farmingforreal #holisticmanagement #ecologicalagriculture

These beautiful ice flakes are a great example of the marvelous patterns the nature is providing - patterns that we try to mimic in permaculture design.
