Crowdfunding Campaign Summary: Hello everyone,

I’m Mike, a farmer at Ozark Akerz Regenerative Farm, farming in harmony with nature. My wife Sue and I have been restoring and regenerating forests on our farm by allowing endangered Pineywoods Cattle to forage in them since 2015. So far their varied appetite and wild foraging has helped restore 15 acres.

Please help us fence another 63 acres) of forest so we can allow our Pineywoods herd to eat and control invasive plant species (they eat brambles, greenbrier, kudzu, privet, even poison ivy!), improve biodiversity and allow trees to capture over 800,000 lbs) of CO2 annually.

The funds we raise will be used to cover the cost of:

– Surveying
– 1.9 miles  of Fencing
– Creating access trails
– Culverts for seasonal streams as required
