Our Produce

We use regenerative farming techniques to ensure our produce is not only nutrient-rich, but safe & chemical-free. We have partnered with Regenerative Life Farm for guidance while starting the regenerative farming process.

Regenerative farming or agriculture works to "restore soil & ecosystem health, address inequity, & leave our land, waters, & climate in better shape for future generations". Regenerative farming is all about working with nature to improve the land, using technologies that regenerate & revitalize the soil & the environment. This leads to healthy soil capable of producing high-quality, nutrient-dense food leading to productive farms & healthy communities & economies.

Overall, regenerative farming allows for sustainability by working with the land, not against it. Using these techniques can heal damage caused by industrial agriculture & build a food system that is better for people, & the environment!
