Gabe Brown is one of the pioneers of the soil health movement which focuses on the regeneration of our resources. The ranch, in North Dakota, consists of several thousand acres of native perennial rangeland along with perennial pastureland and cropland. He authored the book “Dirt to Soil”. They believe that healthy soil leads to clean air, clean water, healthy plants, animals, and people.
Gabe and Brown’s Ranch have received many forms of recognition for their work, including the prestigious Heinz Foundation Award for the Environment. He has also received a Growing Green award from the Natural Resource Defense Council, an Environmental Stewardship Award from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and a Zero-Till Producer of the Year Award, to name a few. Gabe has also been named one of the twenty-five most influential agricultural leaders in the United States.
