PAGLC has focused, for the last few years, on a research project funded through a Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NESARE) grant. This project is developing case studies on two Pennsylvania farm demonstration sites highlighting technical considerations when establishing and implementing silvopasture in both an open pasture situation and a forest ecosystem. Silvopasturing is an opportunity to integrate wooded areas within the overall farm operation, resulting in greater incentive for good stewardship through more deliberate and efficient land use.
