THE CLIMATE FARMERS PIONEER PROGRAM

A 360°-approach to set you up for success

 The Climate Farmers Pioneer Program is a 14-week immersive training program that fully equips you for a successful transition to the regenerative management of your farm.  

 We will guide you through all the essential elements to consider for your farm ecology and business design/redesign. This program is the most complete regenerative agriculture transition program for large farms in Europa.

We are excited to run the Pioneer Program together with the Regrarians’ REX course as a backbone.

On top of the deep knowledge you will gain through the REX program, you will get a personalized program, access to exclusive expert sessions and the most active regenerative farmer community in Europe. The Climate Farmers Pioneer Program helps you apply the learnings to your specific farm context.

»The way Climate Farmers work made me curious to find out more. The Pioneer Program is a way to get results in the shortest possible way. I recommend the program to all my fellow farmers!«

      THE CLIMATE FARMERS CARBON+ PROGRAM

      A financial instrument to de-risk your farm transition to a regenerative system

      • Carbon+ Credits are created by farming projects that remove carbon from the atmosphere by storing it in soil, as well as create additional benefits to ecosystems.
      • Additional ecological benefits include soil health, biodiversity, water quality, and ecosystem health as a whole.
      • Carbon+ Credits support farmers in financing their transition to regenerative agriculture by covering investment costs at the beginning of their project. A condition for Carbon+ Credits is a genuine personal commitment to the long-term application of regenerative land management practices.
      • Climate Farmers measures the changes in ecosystem health to enable farmers to sell high-quality Carbon+ Credits and through them, finance the transition to regenerative practices.

      This Carbon+ program is for you if …

      • You’re committed to managing your land and business regeneratively in the long term. “Regeneratively” means developing the holistic health of the environment, people, and economy of your operation
      • You manage 50 hectares or more of land that are under active production (food, fiber, or otherwise) over the long term
      • You want assistance in verifying and quantifying the regenerative effect of your land management
      • You’re looking for financial assistance during the development or transition of regenerative production methods on your land

      This Carbon+ program is not for you if …

      • Your farming land is smaller than 50 hectares
      • You don’t own the land you farm on and are not sure whether you can commit to applying regenerative agriculture permanently
      • You are not committed to the health of your land, business and personal life in the long term
      • You’re looking for a quick payout 
      • You’re already being assisted financially through another carbon credit or ecological service program

      SKILL EXCHANGE SESSIONS AND EXPERT PANELS

      Experts from around the globe share their knowledge with our community

      Ray Archuleta

      Expert Panels

      For our monthly Expert Panels we invite world-renowned consultants, practitioners and researchers. In them we talk about a wide variety of regenerative agriculture topics and connect you with our growing community. Expert panels are open to the public.

      Skill Exchanges

      We listen closely to the growing Climate Farmers community. Many of our farmers expressed a wish for more knowledge exchange between farmers and experts. To accommodate this wish we’ve set up bi-weekly Skill Exchanges – online sessions in which we dive deeply into regenerative farming topics. Skill Exchanges are exclusive to our community of farmers.

      THE REGRARIANS WORKPLACE PLATFORM & COMMUNITY

      A powerful community for exchange and peer-to-peer support

      Included in this program is access to the Regrarians Workplace.

      An unprecedented community to gather feedback, exchange knowledge and connect with regenerative agriculture peers worldwide.
