Meet Our Regenerative Partners
Grounded Growth Partners are members of our online community who have applied and been accepted into our regenerative partnership process. Our partner companies have committed to provide some portion of their sales to fund the expansion of regenerative farming practices on approved Grounded Growth farms. Our farm partners have agreed to implement the regenerative practices on our approved list and serve as brand ambassadors for their sponsors.
One of the unique things that we provide to consumers and the public in general, is the ability to contribute to regenerative agriculture projects simply by purchasing the products of our partner businesses. These projects help reduce climate change and pesticide use while improving soil health, water quality and pollinator habitat (and many other environmental benefits of regenerative farming).
Don’t be fooled into thinking big problems get solved with big sweeping policy changes. They get solved when many people take small steps and then take more small steps that add up to a real change. They get solved when people decide to use their purchasing power to solve problems as well as acquire goods.
Supporting these businesses below — both by buying their products and following them on social media, is one of those small, but impactful steps forward! Thanks for joining with us in supporting these amazing brands and farms!

Justin Knopf, Fifth-Generation Farmer
Justin Knopf is a fifth-generation farmer who is an avid conservationist. He and wife Lindsey live and farm in central Kansas with their family. Currently, Justin grows sorghum, alfalfa, wheat, corn and soybeans. His family’s farm roots stretch back 160 years. Justin is devoted to increasing soil health on his farm and has been continuously adding new farming practices to do just that — including the use of no-till planting and cover crops. Justin believes in continuous improvement and is always exploring new ways to add carbon back to his soil — which also helps reduce climate change and improve water quality. Justin was recently featured in a book and documentary, “Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman” that spotlights conservation heroes in America.
