Sustainable Dish Podcast

On today's episode of the Sustainable Dish Podcast, my co-host, Lauren Manning, interviews Glenn Elzinga of Alderspring Ranch.

Glenn Elzinga is a former Forest Ecologist turned Rancher. Glenn and his wife Caryl run Alderspring Ranch, a small artisanal family ranch that has passionately produced award-winning grass-fed, organic beef for over 20 years in the Idaho mountains. Alderspring Cowboys live with the cattle during the summer months, rotationally grazing them over 46,000 acres of certified organic wild permit rangeland, restoring health to ecologically sensitive areas.

In this deep-dive conversation, Lauren and Glenn discuss the carbon sequestration of managed grazing and in-herding, how he manages both the animals and his people to keep his ranch running smooth, how the recent forest fires in the western United States could be mitigated, and more.

If you're interested in learning more about this family operation or curious about working or interning at such an amazing regenerative ranch, visit his website at www.alderspringranch.com. He also offers free courses and education for other producers.

Arsen Islamov is a cattle rancher in Kazakhstan. In today's episode of the podcast, we discuss the pastoralist traditions in Kazakhstan, the Soviet invasion, and their reeducation camps. We also discuss the subsequent conversion of rich, pastoral lands to grain and the health consequences of the removal of the traditional diet.

 

His journey into cattle ranching is unique and inspiring, and his stories about the erosion of topsoil due to cropping are reminiscent of our own dust bowl history in the midwest. This conversation is rich in history and lessons that we all can heed.
