The staff at Panorama Organic is always excited to get out and visit our ranchers. In late April, we spent time at Eureka Livestock outside of Bakersfield. We invited some of our customers to come along, and we had a film crew on site with us to document the day.
We started early with a roundup and finished the afternoon with a pasture tailgate. It was a day of learning about the importance of grazing to the restoration of soil and the preservation of wildlife habitat, as well as the parts we all play–ranchers, distributors, chefs, and eaters–in building a more resilient environment.
Our sincere thanks to the Etcheverry family–Jim and Julie, Nick and Kimberley–for their hospitality and for giving us a small taste of ranch life.
