Dan is the president and a co-founder of the Wild Farm Alliance, a ten-year-old national organization that works to promote agriculture systems that support and accommodate wild nature.

He lives on a small homestead farm in Northern California, and today, I speak with Dan about what it means to make farming more creaturly through rewilding practices and better farming policy.


  • The terribly wasteful practices of over production and farm subsidies and how we can be more effective and efficient with resources.
  • Putting down permanent roots in places that should have never been plowed.
  • A great way to replace extremely marginal farmland with a billion trees.
  • What it’s like to farm with the wild.
  • Millions of miles of creeks, ditches, and rivers waiting to be rewilded.
  • Farmers markets: where we can educate consumers and support farmers’ continued education on rewilding.
