at La Delia Verde
The foundation of our farm is built on the principles of ecology.
To us, this means focusing on soil health in order to recreate the natural cycle and to restore diversity in the ecosystem.
Healthy soil does not only support microorganisms and plants, it also has the ability to sequester carbon through plant photosynthesis, thus, reducing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. This is how we mitigate the impact of the climate crisis and also contribute to food security and quality.
We call this Regenerative Agriculture.
Transition of the Farm
Conventional Agriculture often prioritizes short-term yield maximization and financial profit without taking its vast negative effects on the environment, health and climate into account.
This has to change and it has to change now!
So, with these facts in mind, we wanted to be part of this change. This led us to fundamentally restructure our work from the bottom up. As such, we began implementing regenerative principles and concepts and continue to work on these as an ongoing process.
We want to actively participate in the paradigm shift of large-scale farming.
The Importance of Complexity. We Learn and Take From Diversity, the Concept of Nature.
Conception & Commitment
The Importance of
Cultivating land always has an environmental impact. For this reason, we see it as our responsibility to convert our former ways of production into a regenerative and integrated farming practice. We want to tap into our potential and provide an outcome that benefits everyone and everything connected to our farming system.
This is why we commit all our aspirations to ecological, social and economic regeneration.
To us, this means striving for balance and growth within these three factors.
Taking Vital Steps
Starting this transition brought light to the necessity of a new management concept. Inspired by Holistic Management, we developed our own decision-making tool, which is based on our guidelines of ecological, social and economic regeneration.
As the project is constantly evolving, we need to ensure that the decisions we make are contributing to the balance of these factors. We have since implemented a high-level of transparency as an overall principle of our communication – both, internal and external. We wish to share our approach to assure that we meet our own expectations.

By chronologically illustrating our transition, we aim to enable a better understanding of what we are doing and wish to share our progress.
Moving Forward. Together.
In July 2019, we reset our farming method and have since then cultivated La Delia Verde’s plain land by applying the principles of Regenerative Agriculture. The farm is located in one of the most productive arable regions in the world: La Pampa Húmeda in the Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Our farming method is based on complexity and diversity, as such is our team.
