When Gabe Brown first got into regenerative agriculture more than 25 years ago, he wasn’t trying to solve climate change.
“I was just trying to keep the banker at bay and feed my family,” Brown told CNBC.
From 1995 through 1998, Brown’s farm in North Dakota faced recurrent natural disasters: Three years of hail and a year of drought. Brown needed to figure out how to make his land profitable. Also, he didn’t have money to spend on fertilizer and chemicals.
