Spinning Blue Marble
For thousands of years, nature practiced it's own form of regenerative farming with few outside influences. Bison and other herbivores grazed on prairies bristling with life above and below the soil. The suns rays were collected and converted to energy by the plants along with atmospheric carbon, offering a rich food source for grazing animals. The critters working 24/7 under the ground are unseen but vitally important to the mix too and the animals themselves added composting, pruning and fertilizer to this sustainable environment. This natural process went on uninhibited for generations.
In many parts of the world, desertification, dust bowls, and fresh water scarcity are becoming all too common. Land management becomes a vital component to bringing these areas back and it works when given a chance. Regenerative farming is an effort to bring nature back into balance. With an eye toward healing the lands, and good stewardship, small farms are seeing success with a holistic approach. US Wellness family farm partners are enjoying the benefits of richer soils, water retention, and far less erosion. Animals are allowed to graze on green pastures that are given time to rest and re-grow. Pesticides and herbicides that destroy life above and below the soil are eliminated and nature does it's own pest management. Animals are far healthier being allowed to graze natural habitats without the stresses of confinement. They feast on green plants that ruminant animals are designed to eat, making them less likely to have health problems related to pH imbalances. The end result is that we can be confident in leaving this spinning blue marble we live on, just a little better than it was. The next generation will have clean water, fresh air, and nutritious foods. Of course it's not completely altruistic...we get to enjoy the flavor and nutrition of grass-fed, grass-finished, and pasture raised meats along the way. It's truly win-win-win...for us, the next generation, and the planet. Thanks to all those who support our efforts to change farming and food trends. We can't do it without YOU!
