Sixteen-year-old Maloi Lannan is a passionate and knowledgeable climate warrior using profits from her self-published soil health coloring book to build a flock of 100-percent grassfed sheep in Montana’s Paradise Valley.
In this episode of Voices from the Field, Maloi and her mom Meagan tell NCAT’s Linda Poole about their approach to maintaining their fifth-generation family ranch. Their methods include regenerative agriculture, land stewardship, and low-stress stockmanship (except maybe when lambs escape) with a goal of building interdependent and profitable businesses and communities. Listen in to hear a real-life, feel-good story about raising capable, resilient, caring kids through daily hands-on work in regenerative agriculture.
