There’s something special about eating food that’s been lovingly made. But at Wilding Foods, we wanted to go one step further and ensure the ingredients we use in our certified organic healthy meals are grown and grazed with love too.
That’s why we only work with small producers who are firm believers of regenerative farming.
Now for most of us who don’t work on or around a farm, odds are the closest thing to growing anything may be a succulent you’re barely keeping alive on the window sill, or the balcony garden that comprises of a bit of basil and a pot of ornate chillies. So let us tell you why regenerative farming makes such a difference to not only what we eat, but also to the planet.
Regenerative farming is actually a philosophy (don’t worry we’re not going all Hare Krishna on you). It’s about the approach to managing the land. One that nourishes people and the earth. You see, a farm should be made up of both produce and livestock, which work together to regenerate the land. We’re talking about restoring soil and preserving the biological goodness that fungi, bacteria, and other microbes work so hard to maintain under the soil. And the good done under the soil, does good above it too by helping to prevent nutrient runoff and excess carbon escaping into the atmosphere.
You see, our small producers understand the special relationship with the land they grow and graze on, and at Wilding Foods, we appreciate that too. Because every day when we receive orders of fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat, we’re taking something that has already come from a place of good, and preparing and cooking it in a way that does good for you.
We don’t just live by our motto “good done right,” we make sure that all our producers do too. That way when our ready-made meals arrive on your doorstep, you can be certain you’re doing a world of good too.
