Regenerative Agriculture

Same Land, Different Soil Biology

To effectively move industrial agriculture towards regenerative agriculture, farmers must believe there are effective products to offer a viable alternative to current methods. Despite understanding soil degradation (which currently impacts 90% of American farmers), and 40 years of academic research into the soil microbial ecosystem, use of biological farming, or regenerative agriculture — which rebuilds degraded soil and restores fertility to farmland — remains an outlier to mainstream agriculture. 

At this point, there is not even a consistent definition of Regenerative Agriculture, with some demanding organic certification and others calling for a radical overhaul of the existing industrial agriculture industry.

We believe the best definition of Regenerative Agriculture is farming where each cycle leaves the soil biology healthier and the land more fertile than before the crops were planted.
