The regenerative transition
‘’I felt that l I had to take care of this unique agricultural ecosystem. And I believe through regenerative agriculture we can act upon its recovery.”
No chemical inputs
“Since I started applying regenerative techniques, I’ve increased the number and diversity of animal species on the farm, and my profits have increased. My soil health has improved dramatically, and I observe more biodiversity. I regularly welcome journalists and visitors and have started selling my products to butchers and chefs in Lisbon, including a Michelin-star restaurant.”
How we collaborate
Francisco is a long-time partner and friend of Climate Farmers. He was one of the first farmers to utilise our Carbon+ Program to advance the regeneration of his land. Through the program, he’s generating Carbon+ Credits for the additional regenerative techniques implemented on the farm.
