Making a Difference

As we’ve gone on this journey, we’ve come to an important realization: the only way to feed the world in a healthy way without destroying the environment is an agricultural system free from chemicals. So what do we do about it? Our scientists have stepped in and offered an alternative way of looking at things: we worked with nature instead of against it, and we harnessed a technology that has already existed for millions of years under our feet…

Earthmade uses new beneficial fungi and bacteria technology that combats pests and heals the compromised soil our crops rely on. We’ve watched these natural organisms outperform the harmful chemicals we’ve relied on for years. Once considered a scientific impossibility, it’s now a reality. The same fields we’ve farmed for years are growing healthier each season without the use of any chemicals. This is how we will make a difference.


Soil is the crucial element our food supply needs to survive. Healthy soil creates healthy plants, and the opposite is also true- mistreated soil is bad for our food. At Earthmade, we recognize the importance of good soil, and we aim to make sure that we are always putting good back into the earth and soil with everything we do. Through our processes, we are able to improve the microbes in the soil - the little unsung heroes of the story that play a crucial role in both the health of our soils and us as human beings. 


Bees are key players in sustaining a healthy environment. They help produce 1/3 of our food supply, provide half of the world's fibers, oils, and other raw materials, help create many medicines, provide food for wildlife, and help prevent soil erosion. But they are disappearing. Thanks to our efforts at Earthmade, the bees are finally coming back to the fields. The ecosystem is again in balance. And by improving the health of the soils, they’re infusing their food with the essential minerals and microbiology essential for our health.  

Pests & Disease

Pests & diseases are any insect, bacteria, fungus, weed, virus or any infectious substance, which can directly or indirectly cause damage to any plant. Pests & disease are the leading detriments to our food growth, and the main reason chemicals in farming still exist. As our Earthmade natural organisms outperform harmful chemicals, pests and disease are disappearing and the biodiversity is improving.  


Biocentrism is an ethical point of view that extends inherent value to all living things. Through this lens, Earthmade better understands how the earth works, and the significance of biodiversity. Biocentric ethics call for a rethinking of the relationship between humans and nature, and that nature does not exist simply to be used or consumed by humans. We are part of an ecosystem, and any actions that negatively affect the living systems of nature, adversely affect us as well. At Earthmade, we study the ethics of biocentrism and do our part to promote the safest, healthiest living possible, all while striving to be 100% Good!


The correlation between better nutrition and better taste has been established, yet taste has been completely removed from the equation of conventional farming. The origins of better taste lie in creating healthier soils. Earthmade grows food that actually tastes the way nature intended. Our food not only tastes much better, it’s much better for humans and animals, and free of the toxic residues that have been disrupting the intricate ecosystems within us for decades. 

Generational Nutrition

Epigeneticists believe that the diet and lifestyle choices of our parents, grandparents and even great grandparents can flip “on/off switches” in the genes that are passed down through the generations, sending health effects rippling through an entire family tree. To fix our health crisis, we need to realize that we’re connected to the dirt. We need to address the health of our soils and the plants and animals that rely on them.  Using Earthmade’s process and practices of improving the soil microbiome, we can be the generation to turn the tide of the chronic health epidemic and ensure a healthier future for our children’s children.

Farm It Forward™ Philosophy

Earthmade foods start with the farmers. Earthmade has formed a strong global connection of farmers and growers in an effort to stay environmentally friendly and ecologically sound, all while keeping the earth and its inhabitants healthy-to truly Farm It ForwardTM by safeguarding our future for generations to come. We will continue to offer the world's most sustainable, ethical, effective and efficient agricultural practices, and support farmers all over the world growing increasing amounts of healthy, sustainable produce.

Regenerative Agriculture

Regenerative Agriculture describes farming and grazing practices that aim to reverse the climate crisis by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity- resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle. The key to regenerative agriculture is that it not only “does no harm” to the land but actually improves it, using technologies that regenerate and revitalize the soil and the environment. At Earthmade, everything we put into the earth and soil is all natural with no chemicals. This means both the soil and food are treated in a healthier way.

Mike Dobbins

CEO, Vicentia

Mike Dobbins is developing bio inputs to replace pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. His mission is to give farmers the tools they need to produce 100% chemical free food at the scale needed to feed the 9.8 billion people that will soon inhabit the earth. “If you want to look after biodiversity, and you want to improve our soil health, and you want to improve our chronic illness growth, we have to have NO chemicals. And in all fairness there has not been, on a worldwide basis, a solution to the problem.



A few years ago, Walmart embarked on a journey to become a regenerative company, dedicated to placing nature and humanity at the center of their business. As part of their commitment, they recently partnered with GEM Pack Berries, and will be distributing the first crops ever to be grown using an innovative cultivation method that eliminates the need for pesticides and soil-damaging heavy metals… game-changing strawberries from Earthmade. In keeping with environmentally friendly practices aimed at minimizing transportation distances, Earthmade strawberries are available in select Walmart locations in Southern California’s Ventura County.

Duda Farm Fresh Foods

The Duda family has been growing fresh fruits and vegetables for nearly 100 years. It all started with Andrew Duda, who had just 40 acres of farmland, and his sights set on the American Dream. Now, six generations later, the Duda family continues this legacy by bringing their farm-fresh products to a restaurant or grocery store near you and ultimately, your kitchen table. Among their responsible farming practices, Duda has graciously partnered with Earthmade in running chemical-free farming trials on celery.

Gath Farms

Gath Farms has a strong foundation of four generations dedicated to the land. They base their business on relationships, and understand the importance of face-to-face business practices built on honesty and integrity. Working together to build and grow their own successful farming operation provides the foundation upon which they can help others grow their operations, increase their profits and protect the land for generations to come. Gath Farms has partnered with Earthmade to run trials of chemical-free farming on commodities such as corn and soybeans.

GEM Pack Berries

With an eye on the future, an ace coalition of California farmers known as GEM Pack Berries long ago embraced the organic farming practices standardized in the late 1980s. When they banded together in 2015, they wanted to find even more sustainable, soil friendly methods. They soon partnered with Vicentia, which was conducting innovative research on developing a special kind of good bacteria as a substitute to both artificial and heavy metal-based pesticides. GEM Pack understood that, if Vicentia scientists were successful, their advancements could solve a long list of health, agricultural, sustainability, and environmental issues. GEM Pack allocated a sizable plot of farming land so Vicentia bioscientists could conduct multi-year research on the cultivation of multiple commodities.


Australian bioscience company Vicentia’s bio inputs have not only protected crops all around the world from pests that prey on them; they also eliminated the need for heavy metals, which have been found to affect the biofertility of the soil. Better yet, these revolutionary innovations could be adopted by farmers everywhere to grow all varieties of crops, thereby potentially transforming currently problematic farming practices into healthy, earth regenerating, sustainable practices. Vicentia’s groundbreaking solution also lowered production costs while maintaining or increasing yield and crop quality. Today, Vicentia’s regenerative agricultural advances are being trialed in seven countries.
