The Future of Farming is Regenerative

Kettle & Fire is a proud partner of the
Regenerative Agriculture community

Why Regenerative?

Regenerative farms can restore biodiversity by preserving the land (improving soil health and preventing erosion via no-till farming, cover cropping, and diverse crop planting), by prioritizing natural processes (using no synthetic fertilizers or harmful chemicals), and increasing below-ground plant matter and organisms to sequester carbon (instead of releasing it into the atmosphere).

“We Owe Our Entire Existence On This Planet To A Six-inch Layer Of Soil…

And The Fact That It Rains.”

Kettle & Fire’s 5 Core Concepts of a Regenerative System

Below Ground

Soil Health

Increasing soil organic matter (organisms, plants) to sequester carbon below the surface, instead of putting it into the sky.

Above Ground

Water, Land, & Animals

Prioritizing improvement & sustainability of our land, the health of animals, and cleanliness of water systems by way of regenerative methods like no-till farming, cover cropping, and diverse crop planting).

People

Our Partners

Selecting farms that reflect our values in their processes and farmers who share our vision of creating a better food system for all humans.

Planet

The Atmosphere

Preserving natural resources, utilizing eco-friendly methods, eliminating the use of harmful herbicides and potent pesticides, and pushing for efforts to reverse climate change.

The Food System

Providing optimal nutrition while prioritizing animal welfare, selecting earth-friendly packaging, and utilizing regenerative systems, which result in healthier soil for healthier food products for healthier humans.

How We Grow Our Food Can Positively Impact Climate Change

Benefits Of Regenerative Agriculture

Feature

Habitat restoration

Feature

Healthy ecosystem

Feature

Helps the environment

Regenerative farming minimizes soil disruption, maximizes crop diversity, increases organic matter, and helps reverse climate change by sequestering carbon.

Problems With Conventional Farms

Feature

Habitat loss

Feature

Harmful chemicals

Feature

Hurts the environment

Conventional farms devastate biodiversity by clear-cutting land, using harmful herbicides & pesticides, and planting the same crops over and over. This leads to the destruction of habitats, land & water pollution, and increases gas emissions - all negative effects on the environment and our food system.

Why It Matters

The difference is clear. You can see it in healthier topsoil that’s sequestering carbon. You can taste it in the quality of produce, meat, and eggs produced in a regenerative system. Most importantly, you can feel good about supporting a food system that’s good for you and good for the planet.

What We’re Doing

Kettle & Fire’s Regenerative Goals

REVERSING

Climate Change

Putting carbon back into the soil, instead of in the sky.

SUPPORTING

Regenerative Farms

Donating to organizations like Steward, which help fund regenerative farms.

CREATING

A Better Food System

Better farms for better food for a better future.

In conjunction with launching our new broths, we’re partnering with The Steward Foundation, the not-for-profit arm of Steward; a private lender that equips regenerative farmers with the capital they need to grow their businesses. As part of this collaboration, the Foundation will provide grants to select U.S. livestock ranchers working to put more acres under regenerative practice.

FAQs

Can you explain what grass-fed, free-range, and pasture-raised mean?

Matt

Founder & CEO of Cooks Venture

Grass-fed cattle graze and eat perennial grasses. Free-range chickens get about 2 sq ft of space per bird, and the USDA requirements do not define the quality of the environment nor the amount of time chickens spend outside. Pasture-raised poultry are required a minimum of 108 sq ft per bird, a pasture maintained with a minimum of 50% vegetative cover, with shade and enrichments (with housing to protect them from element and predators).

Head of Customer Service, Kettle & Fire

Our Regenerative Bone Broths are made from grass-fed cows and pasture-raised chickens that come from regenerative farms.

Why should I buy this premium-priced bone broth?

Katy

Head of Customer Service, Kettle & Fire

Kettle & Fire has always stood by better practices, such as organic farming. Regenerative Agriculture takes it to the next level for the overall health of our entire ecosystem.

Matt

Founder & CEO of Cooks Venture

Regenerative practices create healthier systems which directly equate to healthier food. Industrial farming is extractive, degrading the soil. The price is higher to reflect the true cost of food including more sustainable wages for farmers and employees.

Do the regenerative bone broths taste different from original Kettle & Fire bone broths?

Katy

Head of Customer Service, Kettle & Fire

No, our regenerative bone broths taste similar to our classic chicken and classic beef bone broths. The difference is that we source our bones from regenerative farms. You can still enjoy the delicious blend of herbs and spices, knowing you’re supporting a better system.
