Earth Asset is a real estate counseling and brokerage firm that focuses on landscape-scale working forests and farms, conserved land, traditional farm animal sanctuaries, and hybrid properties like SHO Farm and Sanctuary at SHO.

We engage with clients around ethical land stewardship and rewilding, agroecological-agroforestry-permaculture farming projects. This means everything we do demands that animals — wild and domestic — are ascribed intrinsic value, conferred roles as land steward partners, treated with respect and kindness, shown compassion, and their habitats enhanced. An apsiration of each project we participate in is that wildlife and farm animals be protected from abuse, cruelty, and all forms of killing, including hunting, trapping, and animal agriculture commoditization.

Our services are grounded in 30+ years of experience, and our 15 years at SHO Farm, our nearly 1,300 acre mountain farm and animal sanctuary. SHO Farm is the living laboratory in which we trial and gain boots-on-the-ground experience with the bespoke land stewardship principles and practices that we counsel our clients about.

Benefit from our successess and failures, and leverage our wisdom to achieve your land stewardship goals.
