With so many labels being applied to food these days, including organic, GMO-free, free-range, pasture-based, etc., it can be confusing for consumers to make food choices. Regenerative agriculture has become one of the fastest growing trends to hit the food industry and for good reason. Farmers and consumers alike are coming to value the core benefits of regenerative agriculture, including improved soil health in fields and pastures, increased soil carbon sequestration, greater biodiversity on farms, more integration of crops and livestock, and improved resiliency for food production.
