The term “Regenerative Agriculture” seems to be everywhere today. But what is Regenerative Agriculture and how can you employ regenerative practices on your farm? Our farm’s no-till permanent raised bed system has proven to be an effective way to passively manage weeds, without the use of herbicides, plastic mulch, or time intensive manual weeding. This system also improves soil structure, builds soil organic matter, and sequesters carbon, which are important aspects of Regenerative Agriculture.
