If anybody epitomizes the word sustainability, it might be Gabe Brown. Switching to no-till in the mid-1990s, Brown endured several years of crop failures due to hail and drought, but it may have been the best thing to happen to him.

He quickly saw positive changes occurring to his soil as a result of the residue breaking down from those failed crops.

Today, Gabe, his son Paul, and wife Shelly, manage 5,000 acres, including 1,000 acres of cropland and 4,000 acres of perennial grazing land.

With 400 to 800 head of beef cattle, 150 ewes, pastured hogs, honey, vegetables, fruit trees and crops like corn, oats, hairy vetch, peas, triticale, spring wheat, sunflowers, along with cover crops, Brown Ranch is the picture of regenerative agriculture.

In this episode of the No-Till Farmer podcast series, brought to you by Yetter Mfg. Co.,  Gabe describes his no-till journey and the events that influenced him to develop a management system that positively impacted soil biology and allowed nature to help his farm thrive.
