One of the most important things to know about Don Ashford is that he really cares about the health and happiness of his fellow farmers and ranchers. Because of that he’s involved in all kinds of projects and programs that provide support and education so that farmers and ranchers can be more sustainable and profitable. That’s also the reason we asked him to share his thoughts and experience with our On Pasture readers.
Don shares what has worked best for him, mistakes he’s made so you don’t have to make them too, and his philosophy on life and being a farmer. We hope you enjoy this collection.
