The soil of Ethos Farm in New Jersey is special. It is ranked by the USDA as Prime Farmland, the top agricultural soil classification in the United States. Because Ethos Health is raising the standard of care for our planet as well as for our patients, Ethos Farm in New Jersey goes a step beyond the methods employed by sustainable farms in New Jersey and organic farms in New Jersey: We practice regenerative agriculture, restoring the integrity of the land by taking a holistic farming approach – effectively cultivating a living soil, which in turn produces the most nutrient-dense foods.
To this end, we optimize our soil’s mineral content, organic matter, and teeming microbiome, so our plants can draw what they need from the soil, to become supremely healthy. Only when plants achieve this exceptional state of health can they manufacture their own intrinsic disease- and pest-fighting molecular weapons, called flavonoids. These powerful compounds are known to not only successfully fight disease in plants, but also in humans.
