Agroforestry Technical Service Provider – WI
(608) 448-6432 ext. 116
Matt advises Wisconsin farmers who are looking to add agroforestry to their land. Before coming to the Savanna Institute, Matt was a small farm production advisor with Grow Appalachia, a program of Berea College, where he worked with farmers in eastern Kentucky. Before that, he served as the organic farming coordinator at the Berea College Farm, which is one of the oldest continuously operated student farms in the country. Wanting to dive deeper into perennial agricultural systems, Matt studied edible agroforestry systems during graduate school at the University of Illinois. He is the primary author of Perennial Pathways: Planting Tree Crops, published by the Savanna Institute. On their own farm, Matt’s family has raised sheep, goats, poultry, honey bees, sweet sorghum syrup, and tree crops.
