The Natural State with Dr. Anthony Gustin

Apr 17, 2023

Daniel Firth Griffith is a man of many talents. Poet, author of three books, educator, farmer, hunter-husbandmand, entrepreneur, father — the list goes on.


So he chats with Dr. Anthony Gustin about a variety of topics, from the importance of preserving ancient wisdom in literature to his holistic approach to regenerative farming, wildland ecology, food supply chains, and more. 


But you’ll quickly realize that Daniel isn’t like other experts in the regenerative ag space. He tends to take a more philosophical approach and challenges the status quo. Ventures like his video, “Soil Health Doesn’t Matter,” even send a ton of criticism and hate mail his way.


Daniel’s passion, hot takes, and unique perspective make this an episode you can’t miss.


Tune in to hear more about:

  • Daniel’s approach to sharing his stories and writing his best-sellers

  • Why it was so difficult for Daniel to get blurbs from regenerative ag experts for his new book

  • The nuances of soil health and the confusion of verified regenerative protocols

  • How we can “do local food better”

  • Why Daniel disagrees with people who think we need to scale the regenerative movement to make an impact

  • The power of collaboration and a “collective consciousness” for farmers 

  • Educating city dwellers about the importance of local, rural communities on food supply chains

  • Why technology won’t save us from food scarcity

  • Whether companies selling regenerative meats are actually helping
