Pasture Project works to advance regenerative grazing in the Upper Midwest as a scalable, market-driven solution for building healthy soils, viable farms, and resilient communities.  We work with farmers, land managers, public agencies, and farm member-based organizations to expand use of regenerative practices that yield win-win outcomes for farmers and rural communities. Pasture Project is supported by the Resilient Agriculture & Ecosystems team at the Wallace Center.
