Kiss The Ground:

If you're local to Iowa you know how important agriculture is here. We are a shop that is passionate about regenerative agriculture. We understand the land we live on is some of the most fertile in the world & it is our responsibility to learn to tend for it properly. Our current systems are not going to provide long term. We must pivot the way to feed the world. 

Kiss the Ground is a Netflix documentary about regenerative ag and what the farmers are doing on the ground level to create change in the biggest ag states in the country. I LOVE this documentary, it changed the way I think about food and our ecosystem.
