Silvopasture Slideshow!

We are well into the film production portion of our “Silvopasture Practices for Land, Animal, and Farm Resilience” project. When we put out the call for practitioners of tree and livestock integration last winter, we were so excited by the responses. In total we heard from 145 farmers across 9 states. Of those respondents, we chose about 15 to contact for inclusion in the final Video Series our team will produce for the USDA National Agroforestry Center.

This slideshow gives a glimpse of film shoots completed in Pennsylvania and Maine. All photos were taken by Costa Boutsikaris, project filmmaker and creator of INHABIT FILMS and WOODLANDERS.

This project is made possible through a grant from the USDA National Agroforestry Center.
