Rceently on my Living 4D podcast, I’ve talked a lot about the benefits of regenerative agriculture, an approach to farming and ranching that prioritizes the health and restoration of our soil and ecosystem.
For a lot of people, unfortunately, it’s hard to wrap their heads around regenerative agriculture due to the proximity of grocery stores near them that are filled with food, although 99 percent of it really isn’t fit to eat.
The ways in which foods make their way from farms to factories to your dinner table has evolved — thanks to Big AG — but not in good ways.
Our whole foods are processed to such a high degree that they barely have any nutritional value and the animals raised for meats are drugged with hormones, antibiotics and God knows what else!
Wild Pastures CEO Autumn Smith described the sorry state of farming as one that’s extractive and taking out more out of our land than we’re putting back in, a scenario that created so many new problems, not to mention genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
“We’re at a time when 70 percent of the carbon in our soil or our soil is basically depleted, and we lose about 30 million acres every single year of farmable land.”
In this week’s video, Autumn describes the six principles of regenerative farming and how those practices give back to the land and our environment and how farm animals and human health prosper from it.
