Learn more about how to take your pastures up a notch. Chat with pastured livestock producer, Sam White, of Leaning Pine Farm, who farms with his wife, Amanda Paul. The farm has long prioritized soil health, and they continue to refine and enhance their soils today.
Sam and Amanda recognize that although these farming practices can be time- and energy-intensive, they are also more cost effective and generate more profit per acre than their previous farming methods.
Leaning Pine specializes in raising quality beef through sustainable, soil-health-conscious practices. In addition to 100% grass-fed beef, Sam and Amanda also harvest honey, free range eggs, and raspberries. No hormones, antibiotics, herbicides or pesticides are used on the farm.
The goal of the Million Acre Challenge is to support farmers in building healthy soils on one million acres of Maryland agricultural land by 2030. By joining the Challenge, you show your commitment to putting your boots on the pathway to a profitable, resilient future for your farm with healthy soils as the foundation.
