The grass-fed and regenerative agriculture model improves soil health and diversity, restores the soil’s ability to hold water and the lands’ ability to be more productive, creating a better agriculture model for all stakeholders. It’s now time to make it easier and affordable for everyone to eat grass-fed beef.”
