Role

Organic goat farmer 

Quote

"My involvement into agriculture gives me strong roots to imagine a more sustainable future for our food production and society in general."

Who are you?

I'm an organic goat farmer, producing the best feed for these white ladies and processing all their milk into 10+ kinds of raw-milk-cheese, sold locally. We do a lot of on-farm trials (agroforestry, silvopastoralism, feed autonomy, resilient plant breeding)... +1000 children visit our farm every year and learn about their food and their environment.

Why are you part of Generation T?

My involvement into agriculture gives me strong roots to imagine a more sustainable future for our food production and society in general.

A specific example on how your project or activities make a difference and initiate change:

I lead a network of innovative farmers (réseau de fermes novatrices) where alternative farmers meet scientists and NGOs to develop better farming practices/techniques.
