Sound Ingredient changes things up a bit this time by taking a break from produce and featuring pasture-raised poultry. We talked to Brandon Chonko, owner and operator of Grassroots Farms in Reidsville, Ga, about how he began raising animals on pasture, the importance of letting animals grow naturally outside, and how partnerships have helped him grow and deliver more efficiently.
We also sat down with Chef Robert Phalen of One Eared Stag in Atlanta’s Inman Park neighborhood to learn more about how the two became connected. He talked about his first encounter with Brandon, the quality of the poultry and other animals Brandon raises, and how he prepares the poultry he receives from Grassroots.
Watch below to get a glimpse at Brandon’s farm and hear our conversations on why pasture-raised animals live better, taste better, and are ultimately better for you.
