Where’s the Beef with RC Carter

RC Carter and his family continue the vision his father had in 1964, when he moved his family from their ranch in Montana to start a cattle ranch in Wyoming. He and his wife are leaders in redefining regenerative and restorative food models, and raise their family in the ranching ways. (https://cartercountrymeats.com/pages/grassfedfamilytradition).
