• 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.

The first annual GOAT Conference

The BFA has helped create, plan, and sponsor a new initiative to connect those building out open technologies for agriculture. Starting last fall, we brought together a core organizing team to create what is now called GOAT (Gathering for Open Agricultural Technology). Our inaugural conference (actually, an "unconference" ) was held May 7 – May 9th, 2018, at Omega Institute. It was a fantastic experience! Nearly 60 people attended, from all over the world...

A Tool for Testing Nutrient Quality: the Prototype is in Production!

We are very excited to announce that the first prototype of the Bionutrient Meter is now in production! A handheld device that anyone can use to flash a light at food and discern levels of nutrient density, or a farmer can use in the field to determine relative crop quality. Many have heard us talk about what it could mean for our food supply, for our farms, as well as human and planetary health if such a tool were to exist. Now, we are no longer just talking about it. After an initial round of testing and tweaking, second generation prototypes will be available later this fall for lab and research partners to use in the calibration process, to identify the spectrum of variation in quality and begin building the correlative database necessary to make it a reality.  Learn more
