Park Farming Organics

Regenerative agriculture is a systems- and place-based approach to agriculture that restores ecosystems, communities, and economies. It builds healthy soils, reduces air pollution, utilizes water efficiently, and increases biodiversity while promoting equity and public health.

By simultaneously storing carbon, building resilience to extreme weather, and eliminating chemical inputs, regenerative agriculture also empowers farmers and ranchers to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

The overall REGEN1 score is a combination of community engagement and education, practices, and outcomes; weighted based on the level of verification from self reported to certification to 3rd party validated.

The farm has been my life for 47 years. I am entertained everyday of the year experiencing the life cycle of the crops and observing the nuances of Nature impacting the crop.

What is unique or special about your farm/ranch?

Park Farming is unique due to the similarity to many large, conventional agri business farms as far as type of crops grown. The significant difference is Park Farming yields are similar to conventional methods, but done in a regenerative fashion rather than a chemical, tillage onslaught.
