• Our Crops
    Yield, Vigor and Flavor
    are determined by
    soil vitality.

    Our Crops

    Soil is a biological system, and addressing limiting factors in air, water, carbon, minerals and biology systemically empowers crops.


  • Our Health
    Is affected by the quality
    of the food we put in
    our bodies.

    Our Health

    Nutritive levels in crops have been dropping for decades. Degenerative diseases are becoming epidemic. Understand quality and find the best for your family.


  • Quality of Food
    Can be understood
    and identified.

    Quality of Food

    Our work is in helping to increase Bionutrient levels in the food supply. Join us in identifying what quality is available where in your area.

RFC Final Report from 2018 Survey

The final report of analysis from the RFC 2018 Survey is now available! Over the course of 5 months last year, we analyzed samples from data partners in 7 states from 50 unique stores and 68 farms/gardeners. To begin, two types of produce were collected, carrots (648 total samples) and spinach (181 total samples), as we began the process of understanding what nutrient variation exists in our food supply, and how we need to calibrate the bionutrient meter so that we can identify that variation. It’s long, but worth a read! We've also uploaded a video walk-through for those who prefer that medium, available here: https://www.youtube.com/user/realfoodcampaign. For an inside look at our process, be sure to check out the other lab and bionutrient metere updates Greg has posted: https://lab.realfoodcampaign.org/author/gba/

2018 Soil & Nutrition Conference video now online

We are excited to share the first videos from the 8th annual Soil & Nutrition Conference! Over the coming months, we will be rolling out video from the 8th annual Soil & Nutrition Conference as quickly as we can edit and refine the raw files, with the hope that we post at least one per week. And first up is the ever-knowledgeable John Kempf. We invite you to enjoy the insights shared in his pre-conference session: The Principles & Science of Developing Regenerative Agricultural Ecosystems

If you were unable to attend this year, we want to give you a chance to experience the vibrant energy and insights felt by all who were there. And for those of you that were in attendance, here’s a chance to dive deeper into your notes and revisit all of those key points that tickled your brain! Please, share, comment and like if you can - and check back regularly for more SNC2018 videos! Visit the Conference Archives

The first annual GOAT Conference

The BFA has helped create, plan, and sponsor a new initiative to connect those building out open technologies for agriculture. Starting last fall, we brought together a core organizing team to create what is now called GOAT (Gathering for Open Agricultural Technology). Our inaugural conference (actually, an "unconference" ) was held May 7 – May 9th, 2018, at Omega Institute. It was a fantastic experience! Nearly 60 people attended, from all over the world...
