PASTURED LAYERS

Welcome to the second video in this mini series about profitable regenerative farming that we’re hosting as we warm up for our Regenerative Agriculture Masterclass.

In today’s video, you’ll learn a little bit about how we run our pastured layer operation, an enterprise that I love for its ability to generate really good profits on a very small piece of land whilst rebuilding grasslands like you wouldn’t believe. It’s been incredible to behold the transformation of our pasture and I think it’s largely due to poultry.

Poultry are key to small farms, because we can have many of them in a small space and create animal impact. It’s a very low-cost enterprise to start up that requires very low daily input. Pastured layers is a really popular enterprise for good reason, and it’s a very complimentary enterprise that fits into many farm landscapes.

One thing you’ll need if you want to run a pastured layers enterprise is roll-away nest boxes. So today we’re gifting you the design for those from our new book Ridgdedale Farm Builds. You’ll find a link to it here on this page.

There are more gifts to come, including our live online event “Stories from the Pioneers”, where you can join Richard and a number of other farmers (who are also our Masterclass mentors this summer) for an evening of conversation and Q&A’s. To register, just fill in the form on this page – seats are limited.

Up next: In the third video in this series we’ll be looking at grasslands and grazing and how we’ve built incredible amounts of topsoil in the short time we’e been here through animal impact and clever use a Keyline plow. Most of the grazing enterprises require more land and often more capital to get started, but they can build soil really quickly because of the unique properties of grasses and grassland ecology.

 

THE REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE MASTERCLASS

The intention of the Regenerative Agriculture Masterclass is to give you everything you need to be able to start successfully, from a detailed land plan to a bill of quantities detailing everything you want to in the development of your farm, a phase plan of how you’re going about that, your sales and marketing strategy, financial plans for each enterprise you plan to take on and then a whole-farm economic plan which is an overwhelming task, and that’s why we’re here to help.

As far as online trainings in this field go, the Regenerative Agriculture Masterclass is by far the most comprehensive, in-depth and detailed sharing you’ll find anywhere.

If you found this mini series inspiring and would like to start your own profitable regenerative farming business, you should consider joining us.

Registration is now open, but only for a few days (and only once or twice a year), so be sure to check it out now. To find out more, just click on the link below; I hope to see you in the training.

All the best,

Richard
