‘Regenerative Farming’: the next big con?
Can we keep “Regenerative” from becoming the next meaningless buzzword?

The Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW standards require that pigs have access to a foraging area. If the foraging area is well managed and/or the pigs have access to good quality forages, it can provide some of the pigs’ dietary needs and therefore reduce the need for expensive grain and protein supplements. However, any reduction in supplements fed will depend on the age and stage of production of the pig—and must be considered carefully.

Non-GMO comparison chart
There are many reasons why you might want to avoid genetically modified organisms, more commonly known as “GMOs.” Most consumers have concerns about health. Other questions one might ask in the face of this new technology: What do GMOs do to our ecosystems, the independence of our farmers, and the rights of consumers to decide what to put in their bodies?
