One of my favorite books is John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley. He outfits a camper and hits the road with his standard poodle, Charley. The open road is one of my favorite places, and learning from folks while I’m out there is a dream come true.

Hitting the road to see folks this winter has been fantastic. The other week, Chip Hines headlined at Winter Green Up in upstate NY. It turned out to be an On Pasture reunion.

It's an On Pasture reunion, with Troy, Meg, Morgan, Chip, and Rachel

We might be reaching record numbers with that picture:  Chip Hines, Troy Bishopp, Meg Grzeskiewicz, Morgan Hartmann, and Rachel. Chip was his usual amazing self, and imparted wisdom to Troy and Meg, telling them to live long and prosper.

And the fun isn’t over!  Jim Gerrish will be down in Arkansas on March 11 for their Grazing Lands Conference.  He’s going to share how you can get more out of pasture to cut down your feed bill. Kathy’s heading to NW Pennsylvania on St. Patrick’s Day for their annual conference. She’ll explain why weeds are great forage, and teach you how to get your herd to take advantage of them.

There’s more to come, and there’s always the open road!

P.S. Written on an Amtrak train….

About the author

editor and contributor

Rachel's interest in sustainable agriculture and grazing has deep roots in the soil. She's been following that passion around the world, working on an ancient Nabatean farm in the Negev, and with farmers in West Africa's Niger. After returning to the US, Rachel received her M.S. and Ph.D. in agronomy and soil science from the University of Maryland. For her doctoral research, Rachel spent 3 years working with Maryland dairy farmers using management intensive grazing. She then began her work with grass farmers, a source of joy and a journey of discovery.
