What Is Regenerative Agriculture?

Regenerative agriculture describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle. Specifically, regenerative agriculture is a holistic land management practice that leverages the power of photosynthesis in plants to close the carbon cycle and build soil health, crop resilience, and nutrient density.

A New (Re)Generation

When Carrie Richards was growing up, she always had a feeling she’d end up taking over the ranch that her family had owned and operated since 1941. What she didn’t expect was to do so in her 30s, with a husband and two kids in tow, and to radically change the way her family had managed their land for generations. Through research, trial and error, and a tireless multi-generational effort, Carrie has been able to implement regenerative farming methods that build back soil and revitalize the land. By stewarding the land regeneratively – focused on the full spectrum of health from soil to cattle to community – Carrie is bringing new life to the family ranch and illustrating the wonderful possibilities of regeneration.
