Savory Institute Programs
The Savory Institute has developed a revolutionary new marketing opportunity for farmers and ranchers that are working hard to improve the quality of their soil and landscape through management. The Ecological Outcomes Verification (EOV) is a monitoring protocol that is scientifically robust for the global market. It assesses key indicators of the effectiveness and health of ecosystem processes by looking at factors such as soil health, biodiversity, and ecosystem function. It is the backbone of the Land to Market program.
Land to Market
Land to Market is a marketing opportunity for producers to get their products direct to consumer or to manufacturers that are looking to buy their protein, fiber, leather, and dairy for the value add of their products. Producers can utilize the on-pack Land to Market seal to further engage with their consumers or they can simply utilize EOV and Land to Market as part of their ranches identity and discuss further opportunities with conservation values, products going to market, etc.LEARN MORE
