For decades, food production has been all about efficiency and lowering cost. We now see what this approach has brought us ó diminishing food quality, skyrocketing disease statistics and a faltering ecosystem. Regenerative agriculture that makes use of cover crops, no-till and herbivore grazing actually contributes to improved soil health and fertility.

An interesting study that highlights the importance of grazing animals found that reindeer grazing on shrubs on the Arctic tundra actually help combat abnormal weather patterns on a global scale by increasing surface albedo, the amount of solar energy being reflected back into space.1 Overall, itís become quite clear that regenerative agriculture is the only truly viable way forward, as factory farming is making everything worse.

Indeed, around the world, farmers are waking up to the many adverse effects of industrialized agriculture. While chemicals and machines have allowed farms to expand and increase production, thereís growing awareness about how these strategies harm the soil, ecology and, ultimately, human health. According to data from the University of Michiganís Global Change Program, a whopping 96 percent of the soil erosion in North America is caused by food production.2
