Innovation: We’re an innovative start-up dedicated to using the latest technology and techniques to bring our mission to life. From being the first meat producer in the USA using consumer-facing blockchain technology to creating a best in class PWA to make getting raised raised meat delivered to your door simple.
Health & Nutrition: We’re giving Americans access to the highest quality meat, the kind people used to have access to when they knew the farmer down the road. Our meat is non-GMO, hormone-free, antibiotic-free and pesticide-free; 100% grass fed, grass finished beef, pasture-raised poultry and forested pork.
