Mountain Lane Beef’s Tom Martin was recently included in a Grist article about the expanding market for grass-fed beef.
An excerpt from the article written by Christopher Weber:
Such premium prices represent an economic opportunity for farmers, but only if they survive a risky transition to what remains a rarified, niche market. Tom Martin of Mountain Lane Farm in Wauzeka, Wis., switched to grass-feeding in 2001. More than a decade later, he is still learning its finer points. He has a herd of 125 cows and sells his beef at farmers markets and out of his home freezer.
