In this episode, I'm joined by my brother-in-law, regenerative farmer  and owner of HEAL Farms, Adam Mason. After years of living and farming in southern California, Adam made the move to Pennsylvania on a mission - to establish a regenerative farm that will help heal the earth and your health. Adam shows us what it really means to be a regenerative farmer, how it differs from conventional and organic farming, and how you can find a local farmer you can trust. From the importance of soil health, how to decipher food labels (what does free range really mean?), and why no one should be vegan, this episode will give a whole new meaning to the phrase "meet your meat."

Adam Mason is a Regenerative Farmer. He’s a father to 3 children ages 5, 3, and 1. He and Katie Mason are a husband and wife team and owners of HEAL Farms in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. HEAL Farms grows Pasture-Raised, Organic Fed Meat. They focus on production of the highest standards without compromising the ecosystem they operate in.

Adam has been farming for over 12 years from vegetable production, pasture management and animal production. HEAL Farms is non-compromising and their mission is to provide their community the purest meat that is free from Antibiotics, Hormones, Synthetics, GMO’s  or Vaccines. They know the struggle of consumers trying to find grocery store meat that is healing to their bodies. (It doesn’t exist) This is why they are driven to provide their customers with food that is nutrient-dense, regenerative and healing not only to the earth, but to those that eat it.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • The difference between conventional, organic, and regenerative farming.
  • The decline in healthy farming practices.
  • Why it is important to know your local farmer.
  • Busting the myth that if you're vegan you're not killing animals.
