Regeneration Midwest, a 12-state regional coalition, came to life in late 2017, and has since been evolving as a platform for scaling up models that address the three pillars of regenerative agriculture: social, ecological, and economic regeneration.

He is a founding member of Regeneration International and Regeneration Guatemala. He is the author of “In the Shadow of Green Man.”
The current poultry-production system has failed ecologically, economically and socially. Our Poultry-Centered Regenerative System Standard fully integrates the environment for the chicken, the social foundation for the system deployment and the economics of farming and food industry management. Starting with nature’s blueprint, we weave the economic and social together to build a framework that delivers an integrated standard.
Last month, Regeneration International and our partner organizations hosted a meeting at the MOSES Organic Farming Conference in La Crosse, Wisconsin, to gauge interest in forming a 12-state Regeneration Midwest Alliance in the heart of America’s “breadbasket.”
