At Burgerville, who we partner with matters to us. In fact, it’s everything. We’ve made a commitment to work with producers and makers whose farming practices embrace regenerative agriculture, a complex set of principles aimed at improving soil health and reviving regional economies. Let’s break it down for you:
Remember that high school science class on carbon? No? We don’t either. Here’s what you need to know: carbon is in everything. It’s an essential building block for all forms of life, so it’s a very big deal. And storing carbon is really important in reversing climate change – yes, climate change. Which is a real thing, by the way. What stores carbon? Healthy soil. So, regenerative agriculture is all about farming and grazing practices that rebuild and restore the soil.

Here’s what we love: regenerative agriculture goes beyond soil health; it’s also about regenerating local economies. Simply put, better yields lead to more productive farms and ranches, and that creates jobs and helps those communities prosper. That’s why we choose regionally-based small family farms, ranches, producers and makers. Together, we’re working to restore the health of not just this region’s soil, but of its communities and economies.
