A handful of California farmers, ranging from wine growers in Sonoma to chicken raisers in San Diego, are embracing “regenerative” methods to boost the health of their flocks and crops.

But many Golden State farmers are still skeptical, largely because regenerative farming is stereotypically viewed as a new-age, hippie practice, courtesy of its emphasis on reducing emissions and promoting biodiversity.

Regenerative farming isn’t just for tree-huggers, though. It’s smart business. By embracing these techniques, farmers can increase their yields and slash operating costs.

Regenerative agriculture aims to restore soil health and nutrients so fields can provide sustainable yields for generations to come. It’s a sorely needed approach. Decades of intensive tilling and grazing, and repeatedly planting one type of crop have stripped vital nutrients from our soil.
