🎓 Regenerative agriculture: here’s our one-minute explanation

Agriculture is an industry that’s frequently up for debate. We wonder: what should the future of farming look like? One of the answers could be regenerative agriculture. This is one of the trends in the sustainable landscape to keep an eye on. To quickly refresh your brain, regenerative agriculture is an alternative means of producing food that may have lower - or even net positive- environmental and/or social impacts. Regenerative agriculture is a hot topic, resulting in lots of attention from producers, retailers, researchers, and consumers, as well as the media. If you would love to learn more about regenerative agriculture, but can’t seem to get going, here are three series that we consider must-watch:

🌳 Must watch 1: Kiss the Ground

The refreshing climate documentary Kiss the Ground offers a positive and practical guide to climate change. The film makes a case for the healing power of the soil, arguing that its capacity to sequester carbon could be the key to reversing the effects of climate change. Why we loved it so much? Because after viewing this documentary you will see that the future is all about the power of microbes. With Woody showing us the way.

 Joshua Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell

🧑‍🌾 Must watch 2: Biggest Little Farm

If you ask us, this documentary should be the starting point for each discussion around the future of farming. Is it possible to become regenerative? The Biggest Little Farm example shows it’s possible at a small scale. It chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Uplifting, educating and entertaining. The question you will have after watching: how can we do this at a global scale? 

🕒 Viewing time: 1 hour 31 minutes 
🎬 Directed by:
 John Chester
🏆 Closing argument

🚜 Must watch 3: Clarkson’s Farm 

Farmers are under enormous pressure from society. In this series, we follow Jeremy Clarkson as he attempts to run a farm in the countryside. Jeremy Clarkson the Top Gear champion? Yes, that Jeremy. Clarkson’s farm follows a simple format. This eight-episode long docu-series captures Clarkson’s farming journey. Honest, sometimes clumsy and filled with humor. 

This series shows how difficult it actually is to run a farm ánd make money. Why should you watch it? Because we strongly believe that the debate around agriculture should start with immersing ourselves in the livelihood of farmers and actually making an effort to help them. 

🕒 Viewing time: 8 episodes of 40-60 minutes each
🎬 Directed by:
 Gavin Whitehead, Will Yapp
🏆 Closing argument
: Breathtaking cinematography
