There has never been a more exciting time to be part of the global food system.

Agriculture is changing rapidly to meet the dual challenges of feeding an ever-growing population and operating within the boundaries of our natural resources.

There is growing recognition that there is no industry on earth with greater potential to have a positive impact on climate change than agriculture. By regenerating the land, water cycles and human health, the move to earth-friendly farming can quite literally change the world.

This industry-wide transformation requires access to quality information, training, expertise, skilled labour, and support. That’s where Regen Farming News comes in.

 

Launched by the Carbon Farming Foundation (CFF) and Commonland in 2019, Regen Farming News (RFN) is an online hub bringing together the latest regenerative agriculture news, videos, podcasts, training, events, jobs, experts and businesses. With over 4,000 website users per month and an accompanying newsletter audience of over 2,500, it rapidly created an international community of committed change-makers.  

Revenue streams from job postings and business directory pages are embedded within the platform, and there is significant potential for building additional revenue through expanded reach and advertising.

 

CFF has now decided to focus its activities on the restoration of biodiverse corridors and to offer the RFN website, knowledge base and mailing list to a new owner. We therefore invite expressions of interest from suitably qualified organisations to acquire the RFN assets.
