Sheep Ranch Corners Conservation Market by Improving Soil Health

NRCS and EQIP help CA rancher offer carbon-conscious consumers value added wool by improving soil health on their pastures.
National BannerBare Ranch Gov Delivery GraphicFor nearly a decade, ranch owner Lani Estill has worked with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to improve soil health. By adding key conservation practices, her pastures now store more carbon in the soil than they emit through the ranch’s operation. As a result, Bare Ranch supplies “carbon-conscious” consumers wool fibers with added value. Learn more about Estill’s northern California ranch by viewing this multi-media story or reading the blog.
