Regenerative Agriculture

A growing number of innovative farmers are embracing ‘regenerative agriculture’, successfully restoring their farm landscapes while increasing their businesses’ profitability and their own wellbeing.

What is regenerative agriculture? Put simply, it is a system of farming which actively regenerates, rather than degrades or maintains, the current natural resource base. It works with nature, rather than against it.

Improving soil health is a key priority. Strong, healthy soils (structural and biological) with deep carbon levels retain water, support strong, nutrient rich plants, and promote biodiversity in soil microbes and plants. They also sequester greater amounts of carbon from the atmosphere, which helps combat climate change.
