A former tobacco farmer reflects on his transformation toward regenerative agriculture, influenced by a farmer-driven program that aims to feed the world while improving the health of the planet.
Bryan Gilvesy has been a tireless advocate for the ALUS concept over the last twelve years. He is the proprietor of Y.U. Ranch, which has been producing grass-fed beef in Ontario’s Norfolk County since 1979. He holds a degree from the Richard Ivey School of Business at Western University, where he is Executive in Residence for Agriculture and Sustainability. Bryan first got involved with ALUS as a participant, with “project number 3” in ALUS Norfolk. Before long he chaired his local ALUS PAC, then got involved with the national organization. And today, Bryan is leading ALUS Canada, A Weston Family Initiative, into an exciting new phase with the launch of the New Acre™ Project.
