The Grassfed Exchange gathers the world’s leading practitioners, thought leaders, scientists and advocates of regenerative grassland agriculture to accelerate our ability to create healthy land, food, families, and communities. Share Your Story of Stewardship At The Grassfed Exchange in Fort Worth, May 2020!
The Grassfed Exchange believe that regenerative grassland agriculture can create a sunlight-powered future filled with healthy and prosperous families, thriving communities, deep topsoil, clean and abundant water and vigorous biodiversity. Our mission is to empower ranchers, farmers, communities, and governments to create this future with purpose, grace and speed across watersheds and continents.
The Grassfed Exchange approach to creating conference content and programming is unique. Our goal is to give attendees a holistic opportunity to learn from, network with, and steward the collective regenerative agriculture community. These goals are achieved by curating a cross-disciplinary forum of regenerative practitioners, leading and cutting-edge scientists, and regenerative advocates and consumers. We believe that creating this interconnected web of cross-disciplinary relationships and knowledge transfer is the key to stewarding a regenerative future for everyone.
This is the first year the Grassfed Exchange has come to Texas. We’re excited to deepen connections between the GFE attendees and the vibrant, big-hearted producer community in Texas. This year’s conference theme, “Shared Stewardship”, is focused specifically on a “big tent” ethos in broadening our community and welcoming farmers, producers, and food system leaders from all walks. We are centering a diverse, intergenerational set of voices, focusing on how to make the future of regenerative agriculture successful.
