Lecture by Chris Kerston, partner at Chaffin Orchards, gives his talk at the Weston A. Price Wise Traditions Conference 2012 in Santa Clara. See Links Below...
First 24 minutes - Introduction to Chaffin Family Orchards and how the farm integrates livestock into their old growth olive, stonefruit, and citrus orchards. Their operation is a 2,000 acre permaculture based farm in northern California. The sheep and cows graze and do all the mowing, the goats eat the invasive weeds, and the chickens eat the bugs and fertilize. The farm uses 85% less fuel than it used to.
24:45 - How Grassfed Beef Saves the World Compare and Contrast Grass-fed vs. Feedlot CAFO system. See how grazing has the power to sequester carbon, inject organic matter into the soil, and increase water holding capacity and fertility. See the value of being predator friendly and how to use electric fences to mimic predation pressure.
