Presentation: Start with Financial Sustainability – Monday 2/25, 11am-11:30am
About Ben: Ben Grimes grew up in Seattle, Washington playing Nintendo and computer games. A far cry from raising meat animals in the ritual south! His journey into farming began when he was 20 years old and started learning about the ecologically destructive nature of the food system. Wanting to be a part of better farming he first started volunteering, then working and finally starting his own farm in 2014. Now he operates Dawnbreaker Farms in North Carolina where along with growing regeneratively raised meat he has developed unique and innovative marketing techniques that attract and retain customers and grow sales.
