Two national brands are partnering with The Nature Conservancy to help fund a regenerative ag project in Minnesota.
Leif Fixen is an ag strategy manager for the Conservancy and says Target and Hormel Foods are investing a combined $1.7 million to pay Minnesota farmers who enroll in the Ecosystem Service Market Consortium pilot project.
“Which generates carbon, greenhouse gas, water quality, and water quantity outcomes from improved implementation of soil health practices on farms.”
He tells Brownfield Hormel and Target are both forward-looking companies that see the need to address climate concerns.
