Improved Pasture Management Project

NOFA-NY’s dairy grazing support program provides farmers with targeted tools to help with grazing management, marketing capability, climate resilience, and soil carbon sequestration. The Improved Pasture Management Project offers direct support for a cohort of 15 organic and sustainable farmers, focusing on tools to reduce farm expenses, build farm resiliency, and expand marketing opportunity. This program is open to organic and conventional grazing dairy producers, and we anticipate building networks that share management practices between farmers utilizing different production methods.

Grazing management provides a unique opportunity for farmers to market their products and build farm resilience through improved soil health and carbon sequestration. This program will provide farmers with a better understanding of the resources available to them, and the benefit of better grazing management for their farms’ profitability.
