For those of you who don't know. Gabe Brown is a leader in sustainable agriculture. He was just a regular, conventional synthetics farmer who tried it to see if he could make more money.  Over time it did, and now he is one of the leaders in the movement. He puts on presentations for other farmers.  Here is his interview:

It's encouraging to hear that the number of people following Gabe Brown's advice is doubling yearly.  These aren't necessarily organic farmers - he presents his way as being a way to make more money by decreasing expenditures on inputs.

Gabe is a hero.  I just pre-ordered his book.

As more and more people see the proof of his methods, they will adapt.  They'd be crazy not to.  How amazing that some of the most innovative farming and ranching in the world is taking place on this man's farm in Bismark North Dakota.  He's making such a difference!  Bravo.

Gabe has absolutely captured what most farmers miss: all those inputs erode potential profits. All those middle men erode potential profits. A farmer can make their own inputs. A farmer can do their own marketing. A farmer can make their own decisions. A farmer can create multiple income streams. A farmer need not be at the mercy of commodities markets.

People clamor for the real deal. Go listen to what this man has to say.

I'm against GE but if we could clone Gabe that would be nice.
