So you’ve gotten into regenerative agriculture. You’ve read some articles, watched some videos (if not, check this out), and you hopefully you’re now thinking, “this is kind of cool!” I felt the same way about two years ago when I first heard this weird term. After doing some research, reading, watching, learning, I still felt […]

Well, before we dive deep at all, let’s clear a few things up.  Regenerative agriculture produces REAL beef. It has no relationship with chemicals or laboratories or soy or beakers or lab coats […]
