2019-12-18T15:49:02-05:00December 18th, 2019|

There’s a lot of talk ABOUT farmers transitioning to regenerative agriculture . . . but often, not enough talk FROM farmers sharing how they are doing it!

How Nutrient Density Testing Measures Ingredient Quality

2019-12-13T12:08:05-05:00December 13th, 2019|

Are we really getting the nutrients we need from our food — or are we just getting calories?  How can food truly be used as medicine?  How can we identify, support and scale ways of growing food that add to our health?

Grounded Growth Founder Sara Harper Shares An Outcome-Based Approach for Regenerative Agriculture on The Modern Acre Podcast

2019-12-04T11:23:40-05:00December 4th, 2019|

 

How do you REALLY build trust with consumers who are bombarded with different marketing and certification claims about products that are supposedly healthier for people and the planet?  How can brands and farmers BOTH win from bringing regenerative agriculture to market — so that it actually does deliver some of the world-saving claims being made in its name?

Our view is that the answer to these challenges is to define and measure regenerative agriculture by its outcomes, not a checklist of practices that can mislead consumers.
