For over 35 years farmers and ranchers in Alberta have used Holistic Management to
improve land, grow nutritious food, gain control of their finances and improve their
quality of life.
Holistic Management is a values-based decision making framework that integrates all aspects of planning for sustainable social, economic and environmental considerations. Each and every operation is unique and by using Holistic Management farmers and ranchers can achieve improvements in their land and mitigate risk.
