Gabe Brown

Gabe is one of the pioneers of the current soil health movement which focuses on the regeneration of our resources.

Gabe, along with his wife Shelly, and son Paul, own and operate a diversified 5,000 acre farm and ranch near Bismarck, ND.  Their ranch focuses on farming and ranching in nature’s image. For more information, visit

The Browns holistically integrate their grazing and no-till cropping systems, which include a wide variety of cash crops, multi-species cover crops along with all natural grass finished beef and lamb.  They also raise pastured laying hens, broilers and swine.  This diversity and integration has regenerated the natural resources on the ranch without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides.  

The Browns are part owners of a state inspected abattoir which allows them to direct market their products.  They believe that healthy soil leads to clean air, clean water, healthy plants, animals and people.

Over 2,000 people visit the Brown’s Ranch annually to see this unique operation.  They have had visitors from all 50 states and 22 foreign countries.  Gabe recently authored the book, “Dirt to Soil, One Family’s Journey Into Regenerative Agriculture.”

Gabe is a partner along with Ray Archuleta, David Brandt and Dr. Allen Williams in Soil Health Consultants, LLC and Soil Health
