What is

Regenerative Agriculture? 

farming practice:

Agriforestry

We know the importance of cultivating a symbiotic relationship. That’s why we plant crops like cacao and mango near our coconut trees to increase coconut fruit yields by up to 50%.

 

We also plant Australian peanut shrubs to prevent weeds from growing that would otherwise suck out the life our coconut trees.

 

Placing coconut husks near the trees acts as a fertilizer and gives snakes a place to live. The snakes help protect our trees by eating pests.

 

Coconut palm trees have a low impact on earth’s ecosystem. They’re grown naturally with no fertilizer and only require the water provided by rain. Most trees live over 80 years and for the most part, are not affected by insects; thus do not require any pesticides!

farming practice:

Biodiversity

By using naturally growing, fruit producing trees & bushes we eliminate the need to clear land, which in turn promotes biodiversity! This allows for all species natural to the environment to continue to thrive. We don’t introduce foreign non-native species to the area either, which again supports biodiversity.
 

Our farming partners own land in the middle of natural jungles. By allowing us to plant cacao, mango and Australian Peanut next to the coconut palm trees, farmers are seeing up to a 50% greater yield in the output of coconuts per tree as well as a coconut that is on average, 20% larger.

 

Our farmers avoid the use of synthetic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers which in turn preserves the biodiversity of local areas, increases soil fertility, maintains the groundwater quality and health of the local community.

farming practice:

Nitrogen Fixation

We intercrop with cacao, mango and Australian peanuts to provide needed nitrogen to our coconut trees, which results in a more fruitful and healthier tree.

farming practice:

Carbon Sequestration

We help to increase carbon sequestration through no-till and agroforestry methods. 

Importantly, coconut trees act as carbon sinks that counter the effects of climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide by the biomass and the soil of the ecosystem.

farming practice:

Crop Rotation

We have no need to rotate crops because we only use naturally growing trees & bushes. We protect present trees and nourish new trees to continue the natural habitat!

farming practice:

Compost

The husks from coconut trees are a natural compost which provide nutrients and moisture. By placing the husks around the trees, we continually create moisture that gives more nutrients and life to the trees.

farming practice:

Perennial Crops

Coconut trees live year-round and are harvested sometimes daily throughout their life. A single coconut tree can produce up to 100 coconuts per year!

farming practice:

Zero Tilling

All of our ingredients are farmed without the use of tilling, which contributes to improved soil health!

We believe everyone should have access to high quality, consistent, and ethically sourced products.

 

We’re able to make that belief come true by using proprietary technologies, all while leaving the earth better than we found it.
