Do you practice land stewardship and respect and care for your livestock?
Today on the show, we’re hosting Esther Stewart, Co-founder of Prairie Companion Company, located on the north coast of California. Prairie Companion Company grows nutrient dense microgreens and raises Angus cattle. They raise their cattle without antibiotics or hormones, and they forage on natural grasses.
As a husband and wife duo, Prairie Companion Company has been farming collectively for over a decade. They began their farm from scratch and without investors. Today, they are proud to be able to work for themselves, tending to their animals and crops.
