Download Our Free Guide Designed to Help Consumers Understand Regenerative!

Regenerative agriculture.  We talk a lot about it on our site, but there are still many people who don’t know what it is.  You might be one of them?

What you probably DO know is that you are often being misled from marketing claims about natural, sustainable or organic food that seem to provide what you are looking for — but often, do not.

To help you cut through the confusing maze of “natural food” marketing and give you an insider’s eye for knowing what’s what, we have created a new membership option — our Regenerative Consumer Circle.

We also created a white paper to talk through […]

Grounded Growth Brand and Farm Members Work Together on Glyphosate Challenge

Bella Gluten-Free Partners with Regenerative Farmer to Eliminate Glyphosate

Grounded Growth Network Announces a New Farmer-to-Brand Partnership

Bringing Regenerative, Glyphosate-Free Crops to Consumers

RICHMOND, VA, June 24, 2020 — Consumer food brands are scrambling to capitalize on the trending “glyphosate-free” bandwagon. Most brands do that by buying glyphosate residue-free tested ingredients and slapping a label on their packaging. But this approach puts all the burden on the farmer and fails to protect against farmers being pushed to use even more problematic chemicals that are just less known.

For Bella Gluten-Free owner Cecilia Ciarlo that wasn’t nearly enough. Instead, she is putting her […]

You have a chance to do just that by voting online for the owner of one of our brand partners, Jennifer Kocher,  in the Emerging Food and Ag Leaders campaign. 

Make a statement – show support for one of the few food companies that has actually paid a farmer to expand regenerative agriculture and is actively working to help them convert regeneratively-grown crops into ingredients to use in her pro

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! 

Big thanks to our friends at The Modern Acre podcast (members of Grounded Growth!) for the nice interview they did with another one of our amazing farmers from Canada, Derek Axten.

Finding the Link Between Healthier Soil & Healthier Food — Nutrient Density Testing

2019-09-19T08:48:55-04:00September 19th, 2019|

What if you could buy food that contains more of the nutrients our bodies need to be healthy?

Turns out, we could. If ingredient makers choose to partner with regenerative farmers who conduct nutrient density testing of their crops . . . like, oh, members of Grounded Growth!?!!

In this week’s RegenerativeMinute, Grounded Growth member Dr. Jill Clapperton shares one example from this promising area of study showing how regenerative agriculture can create more nutrient dense food.

What is Nutrient Density Testing?

Nutrient density testing is one way to quantify the nutritional benefits that result from the choices farmers make about how to grow their crops.

Grounded Growth is very focused on this promising area of inquiry […]

2019-09-18T11:45:09-04:00September 17th, 2019|

Over the years, I’ve learned so much from the New Hope Network.  From attending their amazing Natural Products Expo West & Expo East trade shows, to their natural business school course . . . to staying up-to-date on the latest consumer trends through the great content they continually provide.  As company that is trying to bridge the gap between farmers and the natural products sector, a huge part of that pathway runs right through the New Hope Network.

So, when they included us in a list of 10 amazing organizations moving regenerative agriculture forward . . . it was quite a day!  Of course, […]

Grounded Growth Members Share How Regenerative Farming Captures the Rain!

2019-08-07T12:44:40-04:00August 7th, 2019|

Did you know that regenerative agriculture actually increases the land’s ability to absorb water from a hard rain?  Sadly, this is not the case with conventional farming — which often leaves soils dried out and acting more like cement pavement.

Water infiltration –or, how fast water can get into the ground after a hard rain, is a key metric that helps identify if land is healthy.

Regenerative agriculture helps increase the land’s ability to capture the rain — even hard rains . . . which means less need for irrigation and less run off of fertilizer (natural or not) from the land and into rivers.

How?  All those year-round living roots, cover crops […]

Meet the Regenerative Consumer

2019-06-25T18:23:07-04:00June 25th, 2019|

Despite a growing amount of coverage, the term “regenerative agriculture,” is not well-known to consumers . . . yet.
Still, there are many reasons to believe that as consumers get to know about regenerative agriculture, they will love it.  We know this because this way of growing ingredients actually delivers on almost all the things that consumers say they want in a food system.  But more than that, it delivers on a deeper desire to return to valuing authentic relationships in an age of so much hype.
To see the alignment between what regenerative agriculture offers and what consumers want, consider what the regenerative consumer will be:
Much like the land that grows our food, consumers yearn to […]
