Silvopasture—the intentional integration of trees and grazing livestock on the same land—has been around longer than the industrialization of farming and carries many economic and environmental benefits. But it isn’t easy. A new study, led by CBF and supported by a three-year grant from the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program Research under the U.S. Department of Agriculture, on five Pennsylvania farms is exploring how farmers can implement silvopasture cost-effectively and successfully.
