The second in a series of interviews unpacking the potential of virtual fencing with the team of NoFence. This time Knut Bentzen, CEO of NoFence, we discuss the enormous potential of managed grazing of ruminants on food quality, protein production, soil carbon, water quality, animal welfare, etc.
Paul Lightfoot is the writer of the Negative Foods newsletter, which covers the foods that have carbon neutral or carbon negative footprints, and the technologies, people and companies that bring negative foods to market, food brands that have carbon negative footprints. Paul is the founder of BrightFarms and an investor in the space.

We are approaching the end of 2021 with over 165.000 streams, 40 interviews, many new stories and people all working to regenerate soils at (more) scale.
On December 15th, 2021 we run a AMA Webinar with Koen van Seijean, an opportunity to come together and ask Koen and everyone else on the call their burning questions regarding building a regenerative food system.
On November 15th, 2021 we run a QA Webinar with Mandy Ellerton and David LeZaks of Croatan Institute, hosted by Koen van Seijen. A deep dive in their new paper “Regenerative Agriculture and Human Health Nexus: Insights from Field to Body” that explores the evidence connecting agriculture practices to human health outcomes.
A check in interview with another co-founder of Trailhead Capital Tripp Wall. Hear from Tripp how provenance is key, time kills food, regenerative soil amendments are off ramps from extractive agriculture and, finally, how we need to be able to go long on investments.
Guaranteeing access to sufficient nutrients to the entire global population, which is set to reach 10 billion by 2050, will force a radical rethinking of the current agri-food system. The industrial, linear model of farming has created diversity-free systems that require enormous quantities of pesticides and chemical fertilisers to keep yields high. Cropping and farming practices, with their intensive use of inputs, have led to the exhaustion and erosion of soil and natural systems. The long-term health and resilience of our ecosystem are in danger. However, this trend can and must be reversed.
