If you’ve been reading the Scoop over the last few weeks, you know that On Pasture is switching over to a subscription model. Today is the day it’s happening. I’ll share more about why this is happening, but for now, let’s just cut to the chase and get you logged in and reading!

Subscription Options

There are three options for individual subscriptions to On Pasture. Register for a free account and you’ll get three free articles a month and get weekly emails about the new articles we publish. You can also sign up for either a recurring monthly subscription or an annual subscription. As a subscriber, you’ll get weekly updates and be able to read new, weekly articles and every article in our archive of over 2,500 more. You’ll also have access to upcoming eBook article collections covering everything on a topic quickly and efficiently. (If you have suggestions for what kind of eBook you’d like to see, drop me a note!)

Group Subscriptions

If your organization or company would like to subscribe on behalf of members or employees, we have group subscriptions available. We can set them up to meet your specific needs. Just drop us an email and we’ll get you started.

We’re Working Hard to Make This Work For You

In spite of our best efforts, there may be some glitches with this new set up. There’s just the two of us here in the On Pasture World Headquarters (a small house in Tucson) and neither of us are programmers. We think we’ve written the right code, but if something is quirky or makes you unhappy, please let us know and we’ll do our best to fix it.

Why Is This Happening?

For the past three years, 70% of On Pasture’s operating budget was covered by a Natural Resources Conservation Service Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG). Just before Christmas, I learned that On Pasture was not selected for ongoing funding through the CIG program. In fact, only 18% of applicants were funded, well below the 50% that used to be the norm.

This points to a reality in the granting world today – there’s more competition for fewer funds. In discussing this, John Marble, my good friend and On Pasture author, said, “This all points out that On Pasture is growing up now and it’s time to take the next step.” So, we asked you if On Pasture should continue, and if you would be willing to subscribe to support it. So many of you wrote in to say “YES!” that we decided to try.

On Pasture is the most read grazing resource available today.

I don’t think that’s because it was free, but because you truly find value in what we share: the best science and practices from the people who’ve been successful, documented so you know they work, and translated into steps that you can start using right away.

Our goals are to help you be more successful and profitable, and to ensure that rural communities can grow and thrive. If these are important to you too, I hope you’ll become an On Pasture subscriber.

Thank you for reading and for all you’ve done to make On Pasture a valuable resource!
