Who It’s For
We’re partnering with ranchers who:
Regenerative Agriculture Increases Your Profitability
Increase forage productivity
By resting and recovering your land, you can increase the quality and quantity of forage available to your cattle.
Increase stocking rate
With more nutrient-dense grass, you can increase your stocking rate long-term.
A diversity of ecosystems above and below ground support food security and sustained livelihoods.
Better water retention
Carbon in soil increases the available water capacity, requiring less water and increasing resilience to drought.
Reduce input costs
Save on input costs, like fertilizer and pesticides, thanks to increased biodiversity.
How It Works
Apply to become a carbon credit rancher.
Meet with our team to discuss your location, land management practices, and your openness to changing those practices.
If it’s a fit, a measurement team will confirm how much carbon is already stored on your land.
4. Land Management
Begin creating more carbon credits by implementing regenerative practices and tracking them on our grazing management software, called PastureMap.
5. Get Paid
Get paid annually for the additional carbon credits that you’re storing on your land.
Get access to these additional benefits
Courses and learning opportunities for regenerative agriculture
Discounts on products you may already be buying for your ranch
Free PastureMap Pro account to help you make better grazing management decisions.
Learning and networking with other Grassroots Carbon ranchers
We get to partner with folks with honesty and integrity. The payments… will greatly offset our capital costs of switching to Adaptive High Stock Density.
Are you a rancher in the United States with over 500 acres? You may be eligible to sell your carbon credits! Start by telling us more about your ranch.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much will I get paid?
It depends. The rancher gets paid based on the total carbon credits they’ve created while under contract with Grassroots Carbon. You can maximize your carbon revenue by managing your land for optimal soil health, such as by implementing regenerative practices. The sales price of the credits are determined on a year-to-year basis. Ranchers receive 80% of the carbon credit sale, while 20% is retained by Grassroots Carbon.
How often will I get paid?
Annually. You’ll get an annual pre-payment based on a conservative estimate of your soil carbon storage for that year. After 5 years, the actual amount of soil carbon storage will be measured. We’ll then be able to sell the difference in carbon credits that were actually stored minus the estimated storage already sold on your behalf.
What upfront costs do I have to pay to start?
Aside from the investments you choose to make to improve your regenerative land management practices, there are no out of pocket costs to get started. While the cost of measurement, application, verification, and certification will be deducted from carbon credit sales revenue, the fact that we share these costs ensures that we will constantly strive to reduce them.
