Regenerative agriculture is no doubt a hot topic in CPG, but what does it really mean? Join Lil Bucks and Mad Agriculture on a lush field day visit to their partner farm, A Frame Farm, a Regenerative Organic Certified farm where farmers Luke and Ali Peterson have been trailblazing in the sustainable farming movement for decades.
Experience firsthand regenerative farming's positive impact on A Frame's buzzing ecosystem and the food you eat, first with an educational farm tour, where you'll see how a regenerative farm's soil compares directly to conventionally farmed soil. You'll see buckwheat fields growing for Lil Bucks, alongside ingredients growing for other brands such as Simple Mills and Patagonia Provisions.
If seeing is believing, tasting may turn you into a full-blown regenerative food advocate! We'll follow the tour with lunch hosted by A Frame, and during lunch we'll have a panel with Lil Bucks, Mad Agriculture, and A Frame to discuss how they collaborate to bring regeneratively grown ingredients like buckwheat to grocery CPG, why they do what they do and learn from their journey together.
