On this episode of The Farm Life Show, Blake and Blaine discuss the joy of applying the five principles of regenerative agriculture to your home garden.
The Hitzfields also apply regenerative agriculture principles to farming at Seven Sons, and they share some of the real-world benefits they’ve seen.
The concept of regenerative agriculture dates back to the 1980s and largely revolves around practices like minimal soil disturbance and composting.

Brown’s book has had a huge impact on Blake and Blaine and comes highly recommended. Here’s a brief outline of five principles of regenerative agriculture — as well as some real-world insights from the Hitzfield brothers.
