Photo Guide to Northeastern US Silvopasture

A current interest of our lab and others at UNH are silvopasture systems: the simultaneous production of livestock, trees and forages on a plot of land. 

We wanted to share that a new photo guide depicting silvopasture systems in the Northeast is available. Joseph Orefice and co-authors have assembled a "...photographic resource for farmers, foresters, and extension professionals to utilize when considering silvopasture practices in the region."

Joseph is an Assistant Professor at Paul Smith's College and the owner of North Branch Farm. He received his PhD from UNH where he studied silvopasture systems, and is currently collaborating on silvopasture research with UNH. The photoguide is based on their previously published research, which contains more details on the project.
