Richard Perkins, author, educator, and leading expert on regenerative agriculture comes on the show to discuss everything he’s learned since running his regenerative ag farm for over ten years.
Richard shares his background, how he learned to fend for himself living in a gypsy community, how animals are irreplaceable, and more.
He also answers questions like: is regenerative agriculture available to small farms? Can it be scaled? What does it take to start a regenerative agriculture farm?
Richard also chats about why he switched from growing vegetables to animal husbandry, the negative consequences of our current farming practices, mineral depletion in our soil, how to create a profitable farm that can provide for a family, and what to grow based on your farm size.
With over 10+ years of running his own regenerative agriculture farm and teaching others how to do so, Richard is an incredible wealth of knowledge on the subject. He’s also so well-versed on biodiversity and understanding what species grow best where. Richard shares as much of these details as he can in this episode.
