Peter brings his ecological background to his farming practice. He spent a decade at UW-Madison, teaching courses in ecology and complex systems theory, and researching the history and functioning of midwestern ecosystems.
He realized the critical role that animals play in the creation and maintenance of functional ecosystems. He also realized that in order to achieve broad-scale ecological restoration, it must be an economical viable pursuit. He therefore became determined to work with livestock toward ecological regeneration, and Mastodon Valley Farm was born.
Now he spends his days observing and interacting with an increasing diversity of plants and animals working in concert towards the abundant production of food, medicine, fiber, lumber, and energy. He continues to teach through our on-farm courses and consults with other landowners interested in implementing regenerative techniques on their own sites.
