Regenerative Agriculture vs. Plant Based vs. Industrial Organic vs. Conventional Agriculture.
by Force of Nature
 
REGENERATIVE
  • Builds soil health
  • No tilling, no chemicals, no fertilizers, no herbicides, no pesticides, no fungicides.
  • Holistic, supports a healthy eco system and is conservation focused.
  • Sequesters carbon
  • Works WITH nature to provide the best quality and nutrient dense food on the planet.
  • Works to continuously improve the environment and health, incrementally. 
PLANT BASED
  • Relies on the current monoculture system which destroys soil and wildlife.
  • Promotes genetically modified foods.
  • Produces nutrient deficient foods.
  • Is a sustainable rather than a regenerative model. Sustainable is no longer good enough. 
INDUSTRIAL ORGANIC
  • Heavily reliant on tilling and use of approved pest controls.
  • Monocrop practices that destroy the soil and wildlife habitat.
  • Is a sustainable rather than a regenerative model. Sustainable is no longer good enough. 
CONVENTIONAL:
  • Depletes the soil through extractive processes and methods.
  • Uses tilling and chemical fertilizers and pest controls.
  • Prioritizes profits and quantity over quality and ethics.
  • Creates ocean dead zones, poisoned waterways and releases carbon.
  • Produces nutrient deficient foods. 
  • Works against nature.
