This year, the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture launched a Regenerative Farming Fellowship program in partnership with the National Young Farmers Coalition (NYFC). In this episode, two of the farmers from the inaugural cohort—Drew Blankenbaker, a vegetable farmer in Montana and the founder of The Farmland Company and Kelly Placke, herd manager at organic grassfed dairy Placke Organic Acres in Wisconsin—join host Lisa Held in studio, along with NYFC co-executive director Sophie Ackoff. They discuss how they’re implementing regenerative practices on their farms, the economic and climate-related challenges they face, and what the term “regenerative” means to them.
