Please note that this section is not a scientific paper and none of us at Farmhouse Productions have a PhD (in anything). We're giving an answer with our experience and to our best knowledge. If you feel strongly about any of the information, we appreciate you reaching out with your suggestions!
Q. What is the difference between regenerative farming and organic farming?
A. All cacti are succulents but not all succulents are cacti. All regenerative farming is "organic" but not all organic faming is regenerative. Farms may get an organic certification by not using synthetic fertilisers and pesticides; whereas with regenerative farming, our goal is to improve soil quality by putting life back into the soil; which can be achieved by different methods according to the farm's conditions.
Q. How can you tell if the soil is healthy?
A. When our body is functioning, we generally feel better--stronger immunity, higher energy levels, better sleep, nicer skin. This is the same with soil--when the soil is healthy, it is manifested by the presence of top quality crops (as well as biodiversity that cannot be seen by our naked eyes).
Q. What is no-till farming and how does it help regenerative farming?
A. Tilling the soil kills the complex beneficial microorganism such as long strand fungi, tardigrade, and amoeba. Not tilling enables these guys to effectively break down organic materials which releases the natural nutrients to the crops. Not tilling also ensures that all the carbon and nitrogen that have been trapped in the soil remains in the soil, helping us restore the climate.
Q. Why should I care about regenerative farming?
A. Because when done properly and adopted on a large scale, it is probably the only way to effectively restore our climate. It is the only "true closed loop" system where 100% of the (organic) waste can be utilised in the regeneration of new materials (crops). Climate restoration is our generation's biggest challenge and if you want to eat a real carrot instead of taking a vitamin tablet in 20 years' time; or see a real orangutan instead of a picture, please care about regenerative farming.
