For nearly 10 years the black Angus cattle grazing operation at Pepperwood has been implemented by Aaron Lucich of Holistic Ag. Aaron has persevered through two wildfires and multiple drought years with hard work and a drive to succeed in using cattle to improve grasslands and grow healthy beef. However, with the extreme drought our water supply has diminished to a point that it can not support the size of Aaron’s herd, therefore Aaron and the cattle have moved on. The Pepperwood land management team is currently developing a new grazing program to integrate into the ecology of our beautiful grasslands. We thank Aaron for his dedication to improved land stewardship and soil health, his talent and resourcefulness, and passionate hard work! We wish him well in his future endeavors.
