WHY THE BIRDS MATTER
Birds sit at the top of a local ecological pyramid.
Birds are living sensors that tell us that all life is thriving.
Blue Nest Beef is a proud partner of the National Audubon Society.
The National Audubon Society is one of the country’s oldest and most respected nonprofit bird conservation organizations. The Audubon’s mission is to renew grassland bird habitats by working directly with the people who manage most of them - ranchers.
The Audubon Conservation Ranching program was born to help recreate grasslands that are good for birds across American landscapes. Any farmer and rancher can apply to join the program, but they have to adhere to a set of protocols for 1) habitat management, 2) forage and feeding, 3) animal health and welfare, and 4) environmental sustainability. All of our beef comes from ranches that have been certified under this program.
