I'm Hippo, a book-reading (yes, I did say book-reading) hippopotamus from the African savanna and that's my best friend, Al, on my head.

In an effort to save our home from the terrible giant known as Big Agnes (Big Ag for short), we have added our weight (over 4000 pounds) to the vanguard of grassroots movements that are working to regenerate the Earth. Our specialty is sniffing out and telling you about the best places for food that will help tip the scale towards Earth-restorative traditions. We're starting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

The food is grown using whole systems, regenerative principles.
