Waste Farmers

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    Waste Farmers is a next-generation, sustainable agricultural company focused on helping humanity meet current and future food demands while decreasing agriculture’s environmental footprint. For our company, as with life, it begins and ends with the soil. One of the tenets of the great agrarian society that Thomas Jefferson envisioned was rooted in the belief that the cultivation of the soil provides direct contact with nature. It is in this reconnection where we see hope for the future. It is here we are reacquainted with the notion that we are part of the natural system and not removed from it, and where we seek to learn from nature, rather than find ways to extract from it.
