MYTH: Raising Beef on Grass causes Global Warming.
TRUTH: By pushing herbivores back to grass and mimicking migration patterns on pastures, we can remediate the nutrition in the soil & REVERSE global warming simultaneously!
Why Regenerative Organic Agriculture?
The loss of the world’s fertile soil and biodiversity, along with the loss of indigenous seeds and knowledge, pose a mortal threat to our future survival. According to soil scientists, at current rates of soil destruction (i.e. decarbonization, erosion, desertification, chemical pollution), within 50 years we will not only suffer serious damage to public health due to a qualitatively degraded food supply characterized by diminished nutrition and loss of important trace minerals, but we will literally no longer have enough arable topsoil to feed ourselves. Without protecting and regenerating the soil on our four billion acres of cultivated farmland, 14 billion acres of pasture and rangeland, and 10 billion acres of forest land, it will be impossible to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius, or halt the loss of biodiversity which also will stunt real food access.
How does it work?
The key to regenerative agriculture is that it not only “does no harm” to the land but actually improves it, using technologies that regenerate and revitalize the soil and the environment. Regenerative agriculture leads to healthy soil, capable of producing high quality, nutrient dense food while simultaneously improving, rather than degrading land, and ultimately leading to productive farms and healthy communities and economies. It is a dynamic and holistic, incorporating permaculture and organic farming practices, including conservation tillage, cover crops, crop rotation, composting, mobile animal shelters and pasture cropping, to increase food production, farmers’ income and especially, topsoil.
Being a conscious consumer of meat & dairy products from animals healthier than you are that have lived stress free lives helps SAVE the planet and your health!
Farm to Fork Meat is working to be the catalyst to reestablish the small family farm food system in America. Eastern nations mimic the western trends. If America is able to reestablish the Agrarian lifestyle as one worth revitalizing and celebrating, the rest of the world will follow suit. This action will remediate the health of the soil, nourish the bounty that comes from it while enriching & empowering the lives of the people in the communities we live in.
“Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... These are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women's empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all.”
