BETTER FOR THE PLANET
Better Future From The Grass Up
We don’t just want you having tastier meals for you and your family, we want to build a world that’s better for everyone —and everything —that comes after us. By restoring native grasslands and healing the soil through the practice of regenerative agriculture, we’re supporting carbon sequestration, which helps offset the effects of climate change on the earth. We believe in treating the planet the way it deserves to be treated. Because when the planet’s happy, we’re all a little happier, too.
Why Regenerative Agriculture?
The practice of regenerative agriculture is at the core of what we do at Teton Waters Ranch, and we’ve done it since before “regenerative” was even a common term. Our original ranch in Idaho was formerly potato farm that had been an industrial agriculture site for decades. The combination of replanting native grasses and grazing those grasses with cattle resulted in soil redevelopment, erosion, reduction, rainwater absorption, and an overall return of biodiversity to the land. Insects and important macroinvertebrates returned first, then came the birds, and then deer, elk, and other wildlife that had been pushed from the land. And all this from a combination of vision, hard work, and allowing nature to heal itself.
Working to restore native grasslands helps combat soil degradation, air and water pollution, and climate change through the practice of carbon sequestration. All of this is just as important to us as providing certified-humane, 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef. We are always striving to leave a positive environmental footprint, because this work isn’t just sustainable, it’s necessary. It’s why regenerative agriculture is part of everything we do here, from the bottom up. Because our planet matters, and we want to make a better one for future generations.
Ranchers We Support – and Depend On.
We have a common vision with our ranchers to grow better food within a thriving ecosystem. Together, we are practicing and promoting more natural farming practices and improving the quality of care for the land and the animals.
It Takes a Village.
Ranchers aren’t the only partners we depend on. We believe in many causes and non-profit organizations that share our vision for the future. Learn more about our partners at The Savory Institute, Climate Collaborative, Kiss the Ground, and Sustainable Dish.
