Ep.6 Andy Cato: Grain
50 min listen
We're talking with Andy Cato — the grains grower proving that a more sustainable approach to arable farming is entirely scalable.
In this episode, Andy answers the question we get asked the most when it comes to regenerative agriculture: could it feed the world?
With his own 250-acre arable farm in Gascony, his regenerative farming model — Wildfarmed – and the French equivalent of a knighthood for services to agriculture under his belt, there's no one better to dig into the scalability of sustainable arable growing.
We exist to fix the food system.
People are more cut off from the origins of their food than ever. This makes flavor, nutrition and farming practices that protect the planet, almost impossible to find.
By working directly with growers, we create a more sustainable way forward for farming. By giving everyone the tools to understand the power of our food choices, we empower everybody to become drivers of change.
Now is the time for action. Join the food system revolution.
Go beyond four seasons
Each fruit and vegetable has its own season, with subtle shifts which happen every day. Follow their microseasons to unlock flavor at every stage.
WHAT’S IN SEASON?
Know where your food comes from
We know the name of the person behind everything we source. Recognize their growing artistry to find out exactly where your food comes from (and why that matters).
MEET THE GROWERS
Make your diet diverse
Our growers work with varieties chosen for quality and nutrition, not yield. By selecting their crops you keep heritage seeds in play, add to ecosystem biodiversity and preserve unique flavors.
