David LeZaks and David Strelneck – Why the USDA gave a $600K grant to figure out how to pay farmers for quality

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!
