Management intensive grazing of poultry was a novel idea when John Caveny began several years ago. He selected for varieties that could thrive out of enclosed buildings on pasture and that - this is important - taste good!
John Caveny’s core farming activity is growing grass and advancing the value of grass that he grows. His experience spans more than 40 years with a focus on grass and animal based agricultural production systems that produce food and energy. John is a "practical conservationist." He believes farm and ranch land should be "working land" instead of "retired land." It can be managed to make money from both core enterprises and from ecosystem services.

John and his wife, Connie, live on the farm near Monticello in Piatt County, Illinois, where they graze sheep and poultry. John and Connie are the primary workers with seasonal assistance from their two grown daughters, son-in-laws and now grandsons. Both children were farm raised and trade their labor for a share of the harvest.
