EP115: WHY Pastured Pork with Holly Arbuckle

Where is the Pastured Pork Industry Going?


My love of high-quality bacon and my commitment to health lead me on a search to find the answers. Fortunately, my search lead me to the co-owner of Singing Prairie Farms, LLC and the co-founder of Roam Sticks, LLC., Holly Arbuckle. Holly is so passionate about the many benefits of pastured pork that she moved to an Amish farm (bye bye electricity) just so she could further the movement! Sooooo if you aren't yet buying pastured pork, you're gonna want to hear what she says in today’s insightful podcast.
