Show Notes

  • “Primal” is the starting point for the food and it’s consumption.
  • The farm started with Paul’s brother in law ordering 50 chicks
  • The foundation of the farm is pasture based.
  • Within three weeks of posting about the chickens on Facebook, all 50 chicks had been sold.
  • To start a farm you often need to make short term sacrifices to make long term gains.
  • “Bugs not drugs.” is a catchphrase of Pasturebird and Primal Pastures, they have not had to use any drugs on the operation, when working on a pasture based system there’s a lower risk of illness.
  • Pasturebird raises pastured chicken for Wholesales accounts.
  • The first customer for Pasturebird was the LA Lakers.
  • In Southern California, Pasturebird can raise chickens all year round.
  • Pasturebird was on “Billion Dollar Buyer.”
  • Regenerative Agriculture is more dynamic that merely Sustainable Agriculture.
  • True Sustainability is not possible, life lives within an ebb and flow, either increasing or decreasing.
