Request for Silvopasture Practitioners

Orefice Silvopasture Abstract.pdf 

I am an Assistant Professor at Paul Smith’s College, in the Adirondacks of New York, and am conducting research in conjunction with the University of New Hampshire to assess the current status of silvopasture practices in New York and New England. 

I plan to work with approximately twenty farmers during the summer and fall of 2014 to document regional silvopasture practices.  I am reaching out to you as farmers and agricultural outreach professionals because I am in the process of identifying farms practicing silvopasture who may be willing to offer and interview and site visit.  

If you are practicing silvopasture or are familiar with farms in your region that practice silvopasture (even if they don’t call it that) I would very much appreciate any contact information you can provide.  Alternatively, please feel free to pass along this request to any individuals who are/or know silvopasture practitioners. I have attached the project abstract in pdf format to this post for your reference.  

 My e-mail address is jorefice@paulsmiths.edu and additional contact information can be found below my signature.

Thanks for any help you’re able to provide,

Joseph Orefice
