What Is Regenerative Agriculture?
Regenerative agriculture incorporates a whole ecosystem approach to increase resiliency in producing sustainable nutrient-dense foods. The main objective of regenerative agriculture is to increase soil carbon content by sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Other benefits of regenerative agriculture include enhanced water cycling which mitigates flooding and drought conditions, nutrient retention, and increased biodiversity which all enhance food production and environment protection.
At our farm we use no-till practices, mulching, and composting to develop our soil. Disturbing the soil as little as possible encourages the growth of mycorrhizal fungi and other soil life which enhances nutrient cycling and plant health. Habitat is developed which hosts beneficial insects; as the system comes into balance pest and disease pressure diminish.
