The Times Union in New York just published an article by Matthew Hamilton featuring several farmers that are farming holistically. Both farmers are selling grass-fed USDA-certified organic meat and, of course, are practicing intensive grazing and pasture rotation. HMI’s, Director of Community Services, Ann Adams is quoted in the article…
Adams said profits for large farms that make the switch can be higher because input costs like fuel and fertilizer are lower with holistic practices. The bottom line isn’t the only thing that’s boosted, either
“Anybody who had done it conventionally and switched to Holistic Management are always saying, ‘My stress is less. My profit is greater. I’m enjoying it more,'” Adams said.
We encourage you to read the entire article on the Times Union website.
