100 Million Acres – Pledge to Support Certified Regenerative Agriculture Skip to content

About the Movement

We invite you to join our movement to drive a “tipping point” of 100 million acres (which is just over 10% of the 900 million acres of range and farmland in the US) to transition into certified regenerative systems by 2025.

We are challenging farmers and ranchers, as well as the companies that use their products, to make the pledge to go regenerative. Don’t know where to start? See our list of recommended Certifiers. Already working with a Cerfier and want your company to be listed here? Contact us to get listed.

How it Works:

  1. Commit to shifting your company to regenerative agriculture. 
  2. Sign your company Up online at 100MillionAcres.org.
  3. Get Certified by one of our trusted certification partners.

While each certification entity has an associated cost, there is zero cost for companies to join 100 Million Acres!

What is Regenerative Agriculture?

Regenerative agriculture is about reviving our soil, encouraging biodiversity, and ultimately creating a thriving farming ecosystem. Unlike conventional farming, which often depletes soil health and contributes to climate change, regenerative practices aim to restore and enhance natural resources. It’s about working with nature, within the context of nature.

This way of farming is better for our soil, our farmers, our food, our health, and our economy.

No Tilling

Tillage is the process of breaking the soil with a disc or plow to eliminate weeds and plant seeds. Regenerative agriculture does not till to preserve mycorrhizal networks.

Cover Crops

Planting different species of cover crops protects the soil so it is never exposed to the elements. Later, the dead cover crop will protect against weeds, AND becomes food for the microbes.

No Toxic Chemicals​

This vastly reduces the use of chemicals, herbicides or fungicides or insecticides. Instead, relies on making plants and soil healthy so they can resist pests.

Planned Grazing​

Just like in nature herds of animals are used to eat weeds and fertilize the soil. Cows and other ruminants break apart the top soil, and their grazing promote biodiversity and more resilient crops.

Watch the Movies

From the filmmakers of ‘Kiss the Ground’ (Netflix) comes the follow-up documentary ‘Common Ground’, winner of the Tribeca Film Festival.

Narrated and featuring Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an inspiring and groundbreaking film that reveals the first viable solution to our climate crisis.
