When you are at the farmers market or the store ask these questions to learn if your food and fiber were produced using regenerative agriculture:
1. Did the farming and production of this product improve ecological systems and soil health throughout its lifetime?
3. For meat, dairy and eggs: Did the farmer use holistic management or rotational grazing to improve soil health and keep animals healthy and happy?
4. Did the farming practices help sequester and preserve carbon in the soil?
5. Were farm and processing workers paid a fair wage?
