Farmer's Footprint: The Beginning
This film series explores scientific findings from Dr. Zach Bush and soil health expert Dr. Allen Williams of Soil Health Consultants, LLC that identify the root cause of the current chronic disease epidemic and its connection to chemically dependent agricultural practices.
This film features the trials, learnings and victories of the four generation Breitkreutz family from Stoney Creek Farm transitioning from conventional farming to regenerative agriculture in Redwood Falls, Minnesota. Using conventional methods they saw their soils degrade and their input costs rise every year. Transitioning to regenerative practices has helped their row cropping operation and significantly reduced their input cost for their cattle. This film tells the story of how they did it.
This is Your Brain on "Food Chemistry"
In this Soil Health Academy interview with Dr. Zach Bush, M.D., a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology and metabolism, we learn what happens to our brains when we consume a “food chemistry” diet of processed sugar, fat and salt. Spoiler alert: “It’s exactly the same pattern as you would see in a cocaine hit,” Dr. Bush says.
You are what you eat.
In this Soil Health Academy interview, Diana Rodgers, Registered Dietician, author, and host of the Sustainable Dish podcast, explains why nutrient-dense food, grown regeneratively, is the key to a healthy diet.
Collapse to Restoration
In this Soil Health Academy interview, Colin Seis, a regenerative farmer/rancher from Southeastern Australia, describes how his father’s adoption of industrial agriculture led to the collapse of the farm’s ecosystem and how that ecosystem has been restored through the use of regenerative agricultural principles.
