We see regenerative practices and growing hemp as a way to return value to our earth within the agricultural and industrial system.
Regenerative agriculture is farming that supports soil, life and the planet—going beyond sustainability to actually replenish ecosystems, nurture biodiversity, and sequester carbon.
The principal goal of a regenerative agricultural system is to build and maintain the soil’s ability to recycle nutrients, to capture and hold water, and minimize the farm’s dependence on outside inputs.
When we build topsoil through embracing natural biodiversity, we pull more carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and back into the soil.
Closed Loop System
The regenerative future of agriculture depends upon closed loop models. We farm according to the principle that in a natural system, there is no waste; what is not used by one organism is energy for another.
