4: Know Your Farmer - Pasture Bird with Paul Grieve

Meet Farmer Paul, a former Marine Corps officer and accountant who grew tired of BS labels and green-washing and decided to make a change in the poultry industry. Now that largest pasture poultry producer in the US, Paul and his Pasturebird family are passionate about raising animals the right way. Hear about how his farming practices contribute to human and environmental health, and how we can all make better choices as consumers of local and responsibly raised meats.
Paul says:

“My vision has less to do with size and more to do with impact. I want to leave a positive mark on global agriculture. I want to see environmentally destructive factory farming come to an end. I want to see antibiotics, especially prophylactic antibiotic use, come to and end - preferably before a major outbreak of antibiotic resistance caused by livestock. I want to see a future that's regenerative, where manure is an asset and not a liability. Where we're building soil organic matter, producing a nutrient dense chicken, and giving animals a high level of welfare that we can be proud of and transparent to.”
