Why We Care

“Every story I hear about Regenerative Agriculture makes me want to give planet earth a standing ovation. It pulls a string on my heart. When I know the positive impact it can have on the planet we live in, on my life, my kids’ lives and my future grandkids’ lives…well, you just can’t turn a blind eye. Artisan Tropic will always pursue truth and wellness, which is why we as a team feel so led to pursue Regenerative Agriculture with all we have. We invite you to be a part of this journey with us!”

- Maca Guzman (Visionary Co-Founder)

OUR FUTURE IS REGENERATIVE

WHY REGENERATIVE?

Artisan Tropic was born out of a need for better-for-you snacks due to a family member’s health condition, and our need has expanded into passion and love for connecting food, nutrition, and human health. We are committing to being a company that nourishes our farmers, our employees, our consumers, and our planet.

Our passion drives initiatives beyond sustainability, to advance a method of farming and doing business that rebuilds, restores and regenerates. It is our vision to participate in a movement that is rethinking and recreating our entire food system, a movement that is not extractive, but working to create connection, life, and regenerative synergy - from soil to shelf.

In the Quindío Region of Colombia, there is a deep ancestral wisdom and connection to agricultural practices and standards that go back generations. However, modernized and conventional agricultural motivations and practices have been increasingly adopted in the region, without adequate education around why and how these practices can substantially degrade ecosystems.

Examples of these conventional practices include the spraying of chemical herbicides that kill “bad weeds” (aka important, soil-nurturing diverse cover crops), and moving away from biodiverse polyculture systems to large monocultures.

We believe that Regeneration is fundamentally about Connection, realizing that we are always participating in complex and interdependent systems, and rethinking the potential within these systems to create a greater capacity for life to thrive.

We pledge to share this regenerative voyage honestly and transparently, inviting all participants in our food system to engage with us along any part of the journey, to have a full view of what we’re doing, how we progress, the challenges we face, and why it matters for you, for us, and for the future of our food systems and our planet.

Partnered with

Regenerative Agriculture is very context-specific and these are the values, guidelines, and practices that will guide the journey of regeneration for the crops that Artisan Tropic sources:

1
Keep Soil Covered
Learn More
Living roots from diverse cover crops draw-down carbon and foster life for all kinds of soil micro-organisms
2
Minimize Soil Disturbance
Learn More
Plants are deeply connected through healthy soils and practices like tilling destroy these important communication pathways
3
Eliminate Chemical Inputs
Learn More
These not only affect the food we eat, but infiltrate the life of our soils and water sources
4
Increase Biomass
Learn More
Nutrients from organic material produced by plants (sometimes considered waste) is recycled into the ecosystem
5
Optimize Photosynthetic Capacity
Learn More
By carefully pruning plants, we can optimize their ability to capture energy from the sun and draw-down carbon
6
Increase Biodiversity
Learn More
Creating more resilience by imitating natural ecosystems, biodiversity increases productivity and fertility of the soil
7
Animal Integration
Learn More
Incorporating animals into farms creates natural balance, fertilization for the plants, and increased diversity within the ecosystem
8
Data Collection
Learn More
Regeneration is a continuum, therefore it is vital to track measurable progress by regular soil testing
