Introduction

This website is for investors, farmers and ranchers in the Omaha area who are interested in working together to market sustainably produced foods under farmer-owned brands. Our goal is to market these branded foods through high-end grocery stores, corporate food services and institutions.  Our marketing program will be managed by an investor/farmer partnership (LLC) that contracts with local food processors and related companies.

The first page of this website highlights the role of cattle in sustainable agriculture and points out the key barriers to food system sustainability in the Omaha area. The second page outlines our business model while page three describes a demonstration project for the Omaha area. Page four will list our project partners, including farmers, ranchers, investors and advisers.
