• Our Crops
    Yield, Vigor and Flavor
    are determined by
    soil vitality.

    Our Crops

    Soil is a biological system, and addressing limiting factors in air, water, carbon, minerals and biology systemically empowers crops.


  • Our Health
    Is affected by the quality
    of the food we put in
    our bodies.

    Our Health

    Nutritive levels in crops have been dropping for decades. Degenerative diseases are becoming epidemic. Understand quality and find the best for your family.


  • Quality of Food
    Can be understood
    and identified.

    Quality of Food

    Our work is in helping to increase Bionutrient levels in the food supply. Join us in identifying what quality is available where in your area.

Podcast interview with Dan Kittredge: Growing Nutrient Dense Food

Listen in to a wide-ranging and inspiring interview with Dan Kittredge as he waxes about the aspiration and goals of the BFA, touching on numerous topics such as secondary metabolites in food correlating with flavor and nutritive value, problems with & bridges between differing agri- systems and beliefs, the importance of microbial activity and fungi to access nutrients, healthy plants and inherent pest and disease resistance, biochemical effects of bionutrient-rich food on our bodies, food as medicine, healthy soil as a potential game-changer in healthcare, the economy and the climate, and the links between nutrition & Consciousness.  To name a few.  Listen here.

The Groundwork for Health

Fall 2015

Recommended reading! An interview with Dan Kittredge in Heifer International's World Ark Magazine...

Or the frequent chiming of a cell phone as people call to invite the barefooted farmer for a speaking engagement or to plan a grocery store flash mob to inspire nutrition awareness.   Read more...
