Climate Change

We’re farming carbon

Simply put, carbon farming is agriculture’s answer to climate change. By implementing a variety of best management practices and by planting native grasslands, farmers and ranchers can take excess carbon out of the atmosphere and store it in the soil. By supporting New Acre Project as part of your company’s climate commitments, you can drive meaningful outcomes to help fight climate change while building resilience and a social movement of communities working together to drive change.
