Audubon Certified - Grazed on Bird Friendly Land

A Serendipitous Journey

Serendipity led to the connection of an engineer who knew about energy and carbon to a filmmaker who was looking for better climate solutions. They met a cowboy practicing new grazing methods, and an ecologist quantifying carbon in soil, and something started to smell like a real solution. With the now growing network, fate connected them to two grassfed beef pioneers who were among the best and most seasoned in the game - one who knew the art of finishing and one who knew the art of marketing.  Together they began to see they might have the pieces of a solution to solve an important problem by surprisingly coming together to reinvent real beef with a bigger purpose involving how it would get from pasture to plate. We realize we're not yet as diverse as the prairies we seek to recreate, but, hey, it's our start.
