WHAT WE ARE UP TO
We are spreading manure, seeds and the good word of regenerative ranching. If you want to see life on the ranch, check us out on Instagram. See an event we should be at, let us know!
TEACHING THE NEXT GENERATION
March 7, 2022
Thanks to EATS Park City for inviting us to Park City Day School to teach about regenerative ranching to the next generation 7th and 8th graders! When we think about key indicators of a functioning society, agriculture and education are at the top and these teachers are amazing! The students were inquisitive, challenged us, and of course giggled. Some of the best discussion came from talking about the relationship between land development, desertification and the small water cycle. Excited to get this crew over to the ranch!
MCKINLEY ON KRCL WITH AL THE PUNK ROCK FARMER

We had an amazing conversation with @punk_rock_farmer about Holistic Management and Regenerative Agriculture in Utah and what we do at 3 Springs. They have a great program you can tune into at 90.9 FM on the Wasatch Front. Listen to our interview here. Special thanks to Red Acres Center for the connection!
SOIL HEALTH IN WEST WORKSHOP AND CONFERENCE
February 15-17, 2022
The Soil Health In the West Conference brought together farmers and ranchers to share and learn about practices that build soil health, conserve water and hopefully pad the wallet. McKinley presented on the Science of Soil and Mitch shared our first year learnings as a regenerative ranch and value it can be for the state. We'll share the videos when they are up. Read our post about it to see more.

"DAY ON THE HILL" FOR SMALL AND URBAN AG WITH RED ACRES CENTER

We joined tables with Argyle Acres and had great discussion with Senators and Representatives of Summit County making sure they know about our practices and that Ag matters in our State!
CLIMATE FUND GRANT RECIPIENTS!
January 19, 2022
We are honored to be recipients of the Park City Community Foundation's Climate Fund. This money will be used to measure and monitor the soil on 4 ranches in Summit County to know what ecological benefits come from our practices, specifically, if our practices sequester carbon. Thank you so much to PCCF and congrats to the other recipients
RECYCLE UTAH'S HARVEST FEST

FIRST CHICKEN PROCESSING DAY
August 6, 2021
We did it! We had a dream to raise, process and sell pastured poultry. We processed 120 chickens over 2 days and couldn't have done it without amazing friends and family!
(1ST OF MANY)
July 31, 2021
"What are they doing over there?" Likely what has been said more than once as drivers go by. This was a great day to open our fields to visitors and talk soil, cows, chickens and practices.
CATTLE ARE ON THE PASTURE
June 29, 2021
It feels more like a ranch now that we have cattle! We are starting off with 3 cows, 2 heifers and 1 bull. They'll be on new pasture every day to ensure the land has time to recover between grazes. Here we go!
POULTRY IS PASTURED
June 28, 2021
After 3 weeks in the brooder, these chicks are ready to go on pasture and into the chicken tractors! They'll be moved every day for new grass, insects and supplemental feed and 5 weeks will be ready for processing.
TEACHING AP ENVIRONMENTAL
May 26, 2021
