I believe in the need to improve the way we manage agricultural land and the people and animals that work on it in order to heal our planet.

Increase soil organic matter over time, and sequester carbon in the soil

Improve animal welfare

Provide economic stability and fairness for farmers, ranchers, and workers

By becoming a Supporter of the ROC, I support the values and goals of Regenerative Organic Certified to establish a new high bar standard for regenerative organic agriculture, including:

Improve soil health and organic matter over time and sequester more carbon, encourage better animal welfare practices in livestock production, and provide economic stability and fairness to farmers, ranchers, and workers.

By becoming an Ally, I and/or my organization agrees to publicly support Regenerative Organic Certification and to let the Regenerative Organic Alliance make this commitment public on its website and in its communications, and I and/or my organization agrees to comply with the Terms of Use.

OUR STORY

Regenerative Organic Certified was established in 2017 by a group of farmers, business leaders, and experts in soil health, animal welfare, and social fairness. Collectively called the Regenerative Organic Alliance, our mission is to promote regenerative organic farming as the highest standard for agriculture around the world. 

We exist to heal a broken system, repair a damaged planet, and empower farmers and eaters to create a better future through better farming. 

By adopting regenerative organic practices on more farms around the world, we can create long-term solutions to some of the biggest issues of our time, including the climate crisis, factory farming, and fractured rural economies.

OUR VISION

We envision a world free of poisonous chemicals, factory farming, exploitation and income inequality, soil degradation, habitat destruction, pollution, short-term thinking, corporate bullies, greenwashing, and fake food.

Instead, we imagine a world in which farmers, brands, policymakers, educators, researchers, and individuals join together to create a healthy food system that respects land and animals, empowers people, and restores communities and ecosystems through regenerative organic farming.

OUR VALUES

We value the health of our incredible, interconnected planet and all who call it home—those above and below ground.

To ensure a healthy planet, abundant and nutritious food, and thriving people long into the future, we believe in continuously improving the way we farm.

To continuously improve, we believe in collaboration with innovative farmers, researchers, educators, policymakers, businesses, individuals, and others. None of us can do this alone.

Regenerative Organic Certification was created to leverage and bring together existing high-bar certifications in order to avoid duplicative audits or burdensome paperwork. With USDA Organic certification as a baseline, Regenerative Organic Certification recognizes the strong work already conducted by existing animal welfare and social fairness standard bodies, and therefore, leverages this work as part of the journey to Regenerative Organic Certification.
