Want to learn more about regenerative? Watch this free webinar.

  1. Healthy soils. Minimizing erosion and managing nutrients, soil biodiversity and carbon sequestration helps plants and animals thrive — and grows healthier food.
  2. Clean water. Testing water quality and using practices that keep harmful chemicals and fertilizers out of our waterways helps keep water clean for neighbors downstream.
  3. Clean air and lower emissions. Baseline assessments help farms maximize air quality and minimize fossil fuels.
  4. Animal welfare. Happy, healthy animals that live on pasture are an essential part of the restored ecosystem as they graze, naturally fertilize, and help store carbon in the soil to mitigate global warming.
  5. Responsible practices. Farming without harmful GMOs, glyphosate, or neonicotinoids helps ensure that feeding ourselves doesn’t cost the Earth.
  6. Biodiversity. Having a wide variety and diversity of plants, animals, insects and more ensures the balance of life is preserved and makes our ecosystems more resilient.
  7. Low-impact building. Repurposing buildings and ensuring energy-efficient, conscientious design ensures human infrastructure doesn’t negatively impact the surrounding environment.
  8. Fair treatment for workers. Farms that are Certified Regenerative by AGW pay workers a living wage, respect their rights and prioritize their safety and wellbeing.
  9. Thriving local communities. Regenerative farms are socially and environmentally accountable, interconnected, hire locally and give back to their communities.
