Troy Bishopp, affectionately known as “The Grass Whisperer”, is a 32 year well-seasoned grass farmer and grasslands advocate.  Troy owns and manages Bishopp Family Farm in Deansboro, NY with his understanding wife, daughters and parents. Their certified organic, 100% grass-fed, custom grazing operation raises dairy heifers, grass-finished beef and backgrounds feeder cattle on 180 acres of owned and leased cool season pastures in the Mohawk Valley.

When not moving cattle, he works with farmers at the Madison County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Upper Susquehanna Coalition as their NY regional grazing specialist. The Whisperer is also a free-lance writer for a variety of local and national publications, an award winning photographer and speaks about pasture-based systems throughout the Northeast.
