Earth Day is coming up on Thursday, April 22, and the theme this year is Restore Our Earth. We know this is something you do every single day, and we want to make sure that other people know it too. Farming is underappreciated and under-acknowledged. It sometimes gets a bad rap, but it’s usually because people don’t understand how agriculture can sustain and nourish, and independent farmers don’t have million-dollar marketing companies to make their case. We celebrate AGW farms every day for the ways you raise animals, rebuild and restore the soil, grow food for your community and make the earth a better place. We know the work you do day in and day out, and it is our honor to tell the rest of the world.

2020 Year In Review
2020 was a hard year. Join us in looking back over the ways that we built a greener world in 2020 and the measurable impact that we had together. From launching our newest certification, Certified Regenerative by AGW, to more than doubling our consumer engagement, to advocating for independent farmers, we couldn’t have accomplished all that we did without the amazing farms we get to work with every day!
