Twenty four years ago, Glenn stood up in a safety meeting, announced he was leaving his secure 9 to 5 forestry job, bought 7 cows and 145 acres of Idaho mountain ranchland, and followed his passion for raising the best beef in the world on wild landscapes. Today, his passion includes raising 7 daughters while husbanding 300-400 cattle and the grass under their feet in the high Pahsimeroi Valley. As his family and ranchlands have grown, so has his vision of wellness that goes beyond that of his cattle. For Glenn, wellness now describes the optimum functionality and connectivity of a web of life that starts with living soils and connects with the humans that ultimately eat Alderspring beef. The foundation of university study years ago in botany and biology that led to forestry degree provided a framework to explore new frontiers in wellness today, and Glenn believes that animals on grasslands are critical components that must be brought back into agriculture if food is to continue to provide sustenance. As a result, his carefully selected employees go beyond his daughters and cowhands: beeves, horses and dogs are key members that get work done on Alderspring Ranch. He wouldn’t have it any other way.
