How did a West Coast city kid from tech savvy Seattle end up as a meat farmer in the rural south? I’ve always been drawn to the environmental causes and the outdoors either gardening or hiking or simply sitting quietly under a tree. In my early twenties I was a typical millennial never thinking about where food came from eating primarily out of cans, boxes and packages. Then one day I came across Michael Pollan’s “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” in a college anthropology class and everything changed. I began thinking about the source of the things around me and realized the ecological destructiveness of the industrial food system. I began looking for alternatives and shortly thereafter I got my first taste of farming while apprenticing on a vegetable farm. From there it progressed until the story culminated in the opening of Dawnbreaker Farms in the Fall of 2013.

Today we are heading into our fourth year of production and sell at two area farmer’s markets, operate an urban delivery program we call a Buying Club and sell to fine dining restaurants in the Triangle. We move forward with our original mission to heal the land using livestock and are daily encouraged by the enthusiasm we receive from our customer base who love our product as much as we love growing them.
