09/03/20 - Meet Two Farmers That Willie Nelson Asked to Transform Their 500 Acre Ranch

Host and American Family Farmer Doug Stephan begins with news that he is considering getting back into milking cows again. And then, The Government of Mexico has banned use of Monsanto's Round Up. Next, we meet Tina and Orion Weldon, co-founders and owners of TerraPurezza, a regenerative agriculture institute and farm in Spicewood, TX. They were asked by Country Music Megastar Willie Nelson, to transform their 500-acre property, Luck Ranch, into a regenerative farm. By combining traditional Regenerative Agriculture techniques with modern technology systems, they regenerate soils to build a more vibrant foundation for nutritionally-dense food. They have proven in the tough Texas terrain that these practices are not only feasible, they are also scalable on an industrial level. Their practices include rotational grazing of high-density livestock, effective water management via land augmentation, restoration of native grasses, and the highest quality of animal welfare. Finally, Doug uses his opine time to promote the upcoming Farm Aid 2020.
