Taylor Collins, founder of EPIC Provisions, a high-protein, meat-based snack, has been a huge inspiration in the regenerative agriculture space.
Not only has he shown what’s possible by transforming once barren ecosystems into thriving pastures, he’s also helping to educate anyone wanting to get into this space.
Taylor is truly a beacon in the area and his hard work is paying off — creeks that have been dry for 80 years are returning to their original flowing states and native plants are finally resurfacing after being completely wiped out from monoculture agriculture.
With such positive results, he’s decided to triple down on regenerative ag.
And you’re about to hear all about this and more when you tune into this episode.
Taylor and I dive into his incredible journey from being a vegetarian endurance athlete to creating a meat-based protein bar and how he eventually started his own regenerative agriculture farm.
You’ll also discover how Taylor’s regenerative ag practices are transforming ecosystems, why he doesn’t operate with a business plan and what he does instead, and what it’s like to raise two daughters on the farm.
Taylor also shares what the next five years look like for him and his wife and how this incredible journey has changed their entire outlook.You can create change every single time you purchase food. Click To Tweet
