Nina is a second year apprentice with Quivira’s NAP program. She spent last season learning how to graze a grass finishing beef herd on the Western slope of Colorado. The 2022 season she has spent diving deeper into range ecology, monitoring, and grazing for wildlife habitat in Southern Colorado. Nina fell in love with food production, ecology, and cooking while in college in Vermont. She then set out to work on farms throughout the US and the world, learning various methods of production and scales. Her love for working with animals and an interest in systems and processes lead her to working in the realm of ranching through the NAP program. She is excited about travel, stockmanship and learning the processes that shape landscapes and community based around food production.
