Hello Grant

I am curious if you feel that something like silvopasture design has any merit on a smaller scale (10-20 acres). What things would do the same/different?

Thanks for being here and taking questions!

YES! The vast majority of intensively-managed silvopastures in the world are on the sub 20-acre scale (and most are probably under 10).

A smaller site can be a blessing because you're more likely to manage it well with a single person or small team. Max production, #maxpermo!
