Ron Bokenfohr is looking for a new (old) way to grow grain and feed the soil at the same time.  His farming and milling operation north of Edmonton, Alberta is focused on regenerative agriculture: farming with a focus on building a complex, healthy soil.

In this episode, Mark and Ron talk about the process of shifting to a regenerative farming model and Ron's progress in building a grain sprouting and milling operation that he hopes will supply bakers from Vancouver to Thunder Bay.
