Regenerative Agricultural Alliance

The mission of the RAA is to scale up regenerative poultry in the movement to provide a farmer driven model that showcases regenerative agriculture as the transformational shift needed to balance our ecosystems at large. We approach regenerative agriculture through ecosystem management. Just as the regenerative poultry system works with the entire ecosystem of the land to produce abundant food, scaling regenerative poultry takes an ecosystem of businesses to produce regenerative outcomes. That is why collective ecosystem management forms the backbone of what we do.

Mad Agriculture

Our work begins with farm planning. We dream big about what the land wants to be and how to implement regenerative principles and practices. Putting ideals into action is hard to do. We use a combination of community support, capital and markets to activate regenerative agriculture on the land. Our work learns from and contributes to an emerging and diverse community of funders, practitioners and purchasers. We focus on the Midwest and High Plains of the United States. Exceptions can and will be made.

Extension Risk Management Education is delivered through four regional centers that provide grant funding and leadership within their regions. Each regional center is linked on our web site. Projects are producer-focused, outcomes-based and encourage public-private partnerships. Funded projects must identify targeted outcomes that will help producers manage risk and then describe how the project will measure those outcomes.
