4: Know Your Farmer – Pasture Bird with Paul Grieve

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.”

This locally-driven chef has been a force in the SD culinary scene! Chef Esteban grew up in National City and studied culinary arts in San Diego. After launching his career at The Guild in Barrio Logan, Craft & Commerce, and Tender Greens, Esteban traveled to New York City to cook at David Chang’s famed Momofuku Ssam Bar. Upon his return to San Diego, he worked at Nine-Ten before helping to open The Cork & Craft in Rancho Bernardo. In 2016, Esteban joined CH Projects (Born & Raised, Ironside) as the group’s research and development chef. He has been a supporter of local farms, fishermen and non-profits, and last weekend he was a featured chef at the Berry Good Food + Coastal Roots Farm collaboration, 'Revive our Roots.'

Chef’s next project, WellFed, will take him back to his roots as he returns to National City to create a restaurant project that will be inspired by his Filipino heritage and his goal of giving back to the city where he grew up. Meet the WellFed team and learn about their plans to integrate into their community and build a culture fed by creativity, inclusivity, and delicious Filipino food!
