A conversation with Stijn Markusse, founder of Boerschappen together with his partner Stéphanie Vellekoop, about distribution, packing boxes, telling amazing stories, paying the farmers’ invoices on time, and making sure you also do that in 2-, 5- or 10-years’ time so that the farmer can invest in long term regenerative practices.
What we learned in 2022 about nutrient density in food, farmers’ philosophy, enabling technologies and satellites and redesigning products
Wow! What a year it has been. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any crazier we find ourselves in a war in Europe, crazy energy and food prices and extreme high inflation rates in general.
In an ideal world farms applying regenerative practises are more resilient, but as we saw with the story of Josh Heyneke, founder of Parc Carreg, farms can get into trouble very quickly when input prices spike (in this case organic grain from Ukraine to feed the ducks). It seems like Josh and his partner Abigail will make it through the winter and are building hard on their more resilient future, which will include climate neutral eggs!
With this post we wrap up the year and we look forward to regenerating more soils and many more hectares in 2023 and beyond!
