Regenerative Ranching Toolkit
The Regenerative Ranching Toolkit has a wide range of resources that explore general information and practices, management and monitoring, scaling regenerative ranching, certifications, markets, and peer-to-peer learning networks. Many of the resources in the toolkit were created by TomKat Ranch staff or in collaboration with like-minded organizations, while others are simply resources that we’ve been deeply impressed with and are excited to share.
We hope this resource helps transform many acres!
General Regenerative Ranching Information
An Introduction to Regenerative Agriculture. A guide introducing readers to the basics of regenerative ranching practices to improve rangeland.
A self-paced curriculum explores the history of the current industrial food system and highlights the practices, principles, outcomes, and importance of regenerative agriculture in creating a more resilient and productive food system.
A website that features the work of innovative ranchers and land managers who are achieving economic and ecological benefits on working lands.
Management and Monitoring
A guide aimed at sharing information about some of the more common pasture plants found on the San Mateo coast of Central California.
An Introduction to the soil communities that support California’s rangelands.
This handbook is designed to take Rangeland Monitoring Network participants step-by-step through the monitoring process.
This report is written for technical experts and practitioners to help design a robust and accessible protocol for carbon measurements on rangelands in California and beyond.
The purpose of this document is to provide a summary of the state-of-the-science about a topic that is complex, globally important, and relevant to our strategic priorities: methane dynamics of livestock production systems.
A Wildlife Checklist: Common Species of the Working Lands of Coastal San Mateo County.
An evaluation tool designed to provide generalized estimates of greenhouse gas impacts of conservation practices. Intended for initial planning purposes. Site-specific conditions (not evaluated in this tool) are required for more detailed assessments of greenhouse gas dynamics on a farm.
The guide provides a framework for drafting rigorous grazing leases that articulate shared agricultural, ecological, and social values. Designed with the needs of graziers, private landowners, public agencies, and land trusts in mind, the guide illustrates how land leases can serve broader purposes.
