Podcast miniseries on New Foundation Farms
The podcast miniseries on New Foundation Farms by Koen van Seijen of Investing in Regenerative Agriculture and Food follows us as we are raising £20m to build a regenerative agrifood enterprise starting on 1,000 acres in the UK where we will set out to produce food and fibre in a way that supports soil, communities and health.
The podcast explores why we call it radically natural farming, why we focus on scale and vertical integration, and what a regenerative enterprise means to us.
This episode: Wayne Gibbins on the role of tech in regenerative agriculture from gene editing to nanotech soil sensors
Why is it that even when AgTech investments have exploded over the last few years, most of them are not focused on helping farmers build their soils? What is the role of technology in the regenerative movement?
Wayne Gibbins, our Chief Technology Officer, dives deep into the role of tech in regenerative agriculture and the darker side of technology such as gene editing and marker-assisted breeding.
As with every episode, we are being radically transparent about our personal views and our learnings as we fundraise £20m to develop the UK’s largest regenerative farm. Our enterprise is designed to be fully regenerative and operate a field to fork model and Paul talks about what this can mean for any investor in terms of our equity offer, the returns and the impact over time.
