Regenerative Farming

It all starts with the soil, and by farming for soil, we transform food while healing the planet – but we don’t just support the concept of regenerative agriculture; we live it. Impacting the lives of many across five continents, in eight countries – from the U.S. to India – we support the success of Biodynamic® farms and pay farmers a premium price for their harvests.

Every Biodynamic® product purchased is supporting the farmer who is not polluting, who is a good custodian of the earth and humanity.

-Kiss the Ground

The rich, nutritious foods harvested from these farmers make up Solspring®, an authentic food brand that offers unique Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and organic foods – like olive oil from 100-year-old trees found in the Kalamata region of Greece, vinegars and tomato sauces sourced from 40-year-old farms in the Modena region of Italy, and more – all in a variety of fresh, full-bodied flavors. We also initiated the first-ever standards for Demeter Certified Biodynamic® supplements and carry more biodynamic products in more categories than any other single brand in the U.S.

This is an important change in an industry we literally cannot live without. It’s collaboration – working together to bring life back to the soil.

What is Biodynamic®?

The world’s oldest ecological certification, Demeter Certified Biodynamic® is the conscious, creative, holistic way of farming that elevates the organic standards on regenerative agriculture by using a soil-first approach. It views the farm as a living organism that’s self-contained, self-sustaining and follows the cycles of nature to create a diverse and balanced ecosystem. This promotes the overall health of the crops and animals, from the worms and bees to the livestock, while returning life back to the soil for exceptional ingredients the way nature intended.

 

Doing Our Part

Our values lie in the authenticity of food production and creating access to better food sources by supporting farmers worldwide in building healthier farmlands from the ground up. Soil-first farming focuses on feeding the soil that feeds us and partnering with nature instead of competing with it. By focusing on restoring soil, we can improve the overall health of our crops, animals and climate, naturally driving progress toward biodiversity and a more regenerative future.

To amplify these efforts, along with food safety and transparency, we partner with like-minded organizations, like GrassrootsHealth and Organic Consumers Association (OCA) – who we pioneered the GMO-labeling movement with, providing funding to add Proposition 37 (required the labeling of GMO food) to the ballot during the 2012 California statewide election.

Richer Soil.

Soil-first farming increases the carbon content of soil to create richer, more nutrient-dense top soil for exceptional ingredients.

Better Food.

Farming for soil focuses on feeding the soil that feeds us, growing better food the way nature intended. 

Stronger Planet.

Drawing carbon from the atmosphere and storing it into the ground, where it belongs, improves the overall health of crops, animals and the climate.

 

Fighting for a Regenerative Future

Leaders in the natural health industry with a legacy rooted in sustainability, we are among the original supporters of regenerative agriculture. Our passionate dedication to regenerative practices and advocacy for GMO labeling started more than a decade ago to help rebuild healthy, rich soil that transforms food while healing the planet.
