About Pasture for Life
Pasture for Life champions the restorative power of grazing animals on pasture and advocates for a future where grazing animals eat only their natural diet – pasture – and drive positive ecological and social outcomes throughout our farmed landscapes. In seeking to transition farmers to these practices, we generate positive impact in the areas of environmental, animal and human health as well as supporting a thriving rural economy and wider sustainable food system. Pasture for Life was set up as a not-for-profit membership organisation in March 2011. Approximately 85% of our 1,000+ members are farmers, with the remainder butchers, retailers, chefs, vets, academics, conservationists and others with a stake in and interested in supporting our mission and values. While operating like a charitable NGO, our membership of practitioners means we are, literally, grounded and sought after for our ability to deliver change, not just policy recommendations.
