  • trumpeting_angel
    A great podcast by one of agriculture‘s great thinkers. We have much to learn from John Kempf, and it’s presented here in detail.

    Love the Podcast
    John thank you for all you do to educate and inspire the masses on soil health
  • URG...!
    Such Rich Soil!
    I keep wanting to see John Kempf in the mainstream media. It would be wonderful and fitting to find an Article in the NYT or WashPo or even TIME (is TIME still a thing?) with the story about agriculture that John would tell. There is not much that I can think of that is more pressing than widespread knowledge of the guests and host of this podcast. Good stuff!

    The best!
    Such a wealth of good information! I feel like I’m getting such a good education and so many good book recommendations.

    In the world of agriculture there is no equal to this collection of brilliant scientists, farmers, and agronomists.
  • Ecology will save us
    All episodes superb
    As a climate change activist and earth lover, hearing any good news about our future gives me back the joy that leaks away over time. I don’t know where Kempf has been all these years, but I am so grateful he has emerged to show us what I knew and many many of us knew, that the earth can take care of herself very well, if we just stop destroying her. Just. Stop. Learn along with these earth workers that Ecology was right. Let’s open that book up again, Ecology for Dummies.

    Treasure Chest of information
    Bought 42 acres in Eastern TN a few years back. It’s mostly timber for the last 120 years. The pasture areas were subjected to chemical growing regimes for years and the soil is light beige and very poor. The forest soil is dark brown. I wanted to bring back the pasture areas. This podcast has provided me just the information I need to heal my soil. Thank you so much. Keep up the amazing work!

    Don’t change a thing! Except maybe the audio quality.
    To all the people out there that are critical about representation of women and certain communities, is that really so important? I’m a queer listener and farmer and haven’t ever felt the podcast lacking, except for the inconsistent audio quality, which I totally understand. John has fascinating people on from many different walks of life, bust most importantly, people that are 4th or 5th generation farmers. People that hold a lot of weight in their communities. People that manage THOUSANDS of acres and can speak to others in their field with credibility. The critiques about a lack of representation should be aimed at the industry and society, not this informative, inspiring and well produced podcast. Keep up the great work!

    You ask brilliant questions
    I love this podcast. I am a Body Therapist - working with energy, soft tissue, bones, nervous system, using touch and sound and awareness practices- a gardener, herbalist and I love learning about soil. It is all connected. My favorite thing about this podcast is John’s heart - it is so clear in the way he relates to his interviewees, and with his brilliant questions. I learn so much, from all of it, content and process and heart.

    My favorite podcast
    I learn so much from this podcast. These conversations give me a glimmer of hope for our future. John guides the conversations brilliantly. His guest are excellent experts expounding on the essential, broad ideas and the nuances of working with nature.

    A Wealth of Digestible Information
    I’m no biologist, just an urban gardener that has a strong passion for growing nutrient dense food for myself and my community. I feel that our country’s agriculture system is not designed for well being of its people, but to put more money in the pockets of agricultural corporations. The information that John digs up in his interviews is INVALUABLE! I’ve learned so much over the past month taking notes while listening to this podcast. What I love most about this podcast is that it feels like it comes from a place of humility. There is no sense of pride or effort to push the listener to think a certain way. It is pure information coming from John’s passion and interest in the topics discussed. Thank you and please keep it up!

    Where are the women?
    You don’t know any women farmers?

    Great podcast
    Amazing podcast. Covers all things soil health.
  • dyllpear
    No one is benefiting if you only interview white,cis men.
    Wonderful! Important! BUT we need more interviews with women, BIPOC, and queer farmers. We need/must hear their perspectives and practices... we’ve got to think broader, bigger, better. If you are having a hard time finding them to interview, look harder. They are out there and necessary.
  • jpondo
    What book is that?
    Hi there, I love the interview and and discussion about starting with geology in episode 65. However I can’t seem to find the book that was recommended, Buffalo Arts? Who’s the author? Curios farmer in Montana

    Joining heart and head, dollars and sense
    Kudos to host John K. and his support team for this content-rich work. Yes, the audio is not broadcast-standard quality, but I find the knowledge and spirit of these conversations more than balances the technical quirks. Bravo!
  • YannisD
    Amazing Content - Horrible sound quality !
    This is a great podcast, excellently handled by the host. But John seriously some of the sound quality is dreadful. I still wanna give 5 stars as your work is good and important but I’m sure you can do something with the sound quality even with Covid issues and remote interviews.
  • jeremy kiner
    Great content bad audio
    Having trouble stomaching the content with the audio quality

    Saving our farms.
    Restoring our soils is our quickest way forward to decarbonization. Here is a fantastic resource for growers looking for a path to higher profitability with the side benefit of restoring balance to our carbon budget. The business opportunities are significant. The old ways are ripe for disruption.
  • WaldoP969

    Regenerative Agriculture will change the world!
    John is doing great work with this podcast. I love the guests he brings on the information being discussed. World changing is big title, but will be the result if we can begin to influence the way people farm. Keep up the good work AEA and John!
  • Gardener and Chef
    Serious, Effective, Organized Info
    I have a job which allows me to listen to (growing, farming, garden related) podcasts all day long. Regenerative Ag Podcast is the best one I have found. The information is dense, very well presented and organized. Most of all, John Kempf is working to make a change where things really matter - the health of the food we grow. The production values are excellent in terms of sound quality, etc.. I get a strong sense that Kempf well studied and up to date on the lit, and can clear assimilate the pertinent info from across the sciences. I also appreciate that his work is rooted in working with farmers make improvements. Its not theoretical or overly academic, but very real world.

    Enlightening & Stimulating
    The subject and practice of Regenerative Agriculture is gaining interest and momentum. Many thanks and kudos to John Kempf, a knowledgeable and energized visionary, for helping guide us through what can be a maze of random bits and bytes and for connecting the most important of dots so that we might better understand how to: improve the potential of our eco-systems - our soil, water and biodiversity; recognize the uniqueness and potential of our local environs and to stimulate our imaginations as we consider these relationships. The topic & guest are competently surveyed by Mr. Kemp resulting in an informative, comprehensible, enlightening and stimulating session.
  • Jonathan Kitchens
    Top notch!!
    John Kempf’s Regenerative Agriculture podcast is the most exciting, informative intersection of ecological agriculture, soil/personal health and the dynamic relationships therein. He has a diverse range of deeply knowledgeable guests and asks well thought questions that lead to further inquiry and insight. John approaches each conversation with a keen understanding of the information while remaining humble and open which allows the guest to deliver the information without being steamrolled by the interviewer. I really can’t wait to hear each new episode.
  • Energy Goddess 7
    In-depth Agronomic Information
    put together in a clear and easy to understand way. Very impressed with the level of knowledge of the guests and appreciate John's ability to draw out the information with clear and easy to follow questions. Though sometimes John and the guest move away from a topic I would have wanted to hear more about. Overall this is a great source of knowledge especiallly if you're curious about what is involved in transitioning a farming operation to sustainable practices. John and his guests provide great information on the practicality and profitability of different practices.
  • We matter. We are Nature.
    Harmonious reality.
    I am so grateful these podcasts have given me a place to steep in the wisdom of Nature. I never knew how insects eat the weak, the dying, the damaged plants by choice and necessity. I never knew how the design of our ecosystems are as profoundly intricately dedicated to our well being. It is so easy to be confused by the structures, veils, lies and degenerative dysfunction that passes for life in society. Cast it all aside. Listen to your Heart and then these podcasts to find out where to go, what to do, and how to do it, so we can all thrive and be stewards of our Home, our bodies, and minds. Regenerative living and eating, and growing is not a fad. It is our blueprint. Come Home to this. I feel so good, so grateful, so enlivened by the wisdom, intelligence and kindness that brought these caring, deeply educated and beautiful voices together. Thank you for helping me understand what Nature has been singing right in front of me my whole life, but I was too busy trying to navigate and survive so many sad distractions that add up to nothing, I did not have ears to hear. Thank you for leading this way, the Way of Love and Nature. I am here, ready to participate. Aloha, Claire - Permaculturist Singer, Artist, Builder, Teacher, Designer, Lover by Nature.

    Great topics, more details please
    I’ve been looking for professional, well-thought-out content on Regenerative Ag for some time and this is by far the best podcast available. One thing that would quickly elevate this to a 5 for me is if John would get more into actionable specifics. For example, during his conversation on nutritional density with the guest from OSU, the guest mentions some studies that he’s found convincing and the importance of additional reading/note taking for successful growers. I think a big opportunity was missed to reference the specific studies or research and dive into the details of where the guest sees his successful growers finding information, note taking styles etc... Tim Ferriss Show does this very well, as an example. TLDR: I think this would be more impactful for both enthusiasts and skeptics if there was a greater representation of scientific backing and actionable recommendations.
  • LifeHatch
    A gold mine of information!
    This podcast is full of all kinds of really great information about plant/soil health and their relationships
  • AlaskaBerryFarmer
    Empowering Farm Nutrition Education
    As a new farmer in the last frontier in North Pole, Alaska where our climate is harsh and soil lacks many essential minerals and looking for ways to find sustainble ways to emprove our soils, the information given by John and many others is eye opening and so fascinating and educational with information from scientists and researchers that give helpful information to help us as farmers to be able make better nutrition decisions and farm practices to be profitable. I am personal blown away from this information and I can't wait for each podcast!
