Today’s guest is Taylor Larson, who along with his two brothers and parents, operates My Brothers’ Farm in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.
First generation farmers, they raise bison, pigs, and hazelnuts on the land on which they were raised.
Taylor describes creating effective frameworks to determine a vision of regenerative agriculture with multiple partners and the importance of returning to the frameworks for decision-making.
"We looking at what we are bringing into this world through our operations," says Taylor. "And it has grown beyond my wildest dreams."
You’ll also hear why Taylor views the partnerships between farmers and researchers as crucial to moving sustainable agriculture forward. Taylor has Western SARE farmer-rancher grant to study the potential for shake and catch harvesting in hazelnut production.
