Heifer Ranch Center for Regenerative Agriculture is a working ranch committed to working with nature. We assist small-scale farmers in adopting science-based, eco-friendly, regenerative farming practices that renew the soil and increase biodiversity. We research, experiment, and demonstrate regenerative methods, measure the environmental impacts on partner farms as well as our 1,200-acre ranch, and share our knowledge through in-person and online training opportunities.
Regenerative agriculture means stewarding the land to create a balanced ecosystem in which the cycles of nature work symbiotically and freely.Read More About What is Regenerative Agriculture?
At Heifer Ranch, the team cares for the animals above the ground as well as those below — the communities of tiny, soil-dwelling creatures that builds the land’s resilience to climate shocks.Read More About Heal the Soil, Heal the World
As the pastures and animals of Heifer Ranch have flourished, native species have prospered alongside them — a welcome indication of a healthy, resilient ecosystem.Read More About Birds and Beavers: Return of Native Species Signals Ecological Resilience at Heifer Ranch
Heifer Ranch is located in Perryville, Arkansas, just 40 miles west of Little Rock, where the Heifer International Headquarters is located. The Ranch is the home of Heifer USA, Heifer International’s program in the United States, and an accredited Hub for the Savory Institute, a world leader in regenerative practices.
Heifer Ranch has been part of Heifer International’s mission to end hunger and poverty while caring for the earth since 1971, when it was used as a breeding, holding, and quarantine center for animals being sent to Heifer projects around the world. When Heifer International began sourcing animals for its projects within the countries it served, the Ranch transitioned to an educational center for visitors to learn about and experience a version of Heifer's global work.
In 2019, Heifer Ranch evolved from facilitating public field trips and a visitors center into a living classroom for farmers to learn about the symbiotic relationship between livestock and the land. Farmer training is also available online. You can access it on Heifer USA’s YouTube Channel.
