The Shocking Truth About The Chicken You're Eating, Grocery Label Lies, Pesticides & Soil Health, Recovering from Lyme Disease, How to Start Your Own Farm, And Raising Chickens with Farmer Paul Greive of PastureBird.
On today’s episode, we are joined by Pasturebird Farm’s founder & farmer,Paul Greive. Paul transitioned from city life as a corporate accountant without a background in agriculture when an illness required him to change the course of his life. After serving in the Marine Corps and contracting Lyme disease during sniper school, Paul began to look more closely at what he was putting into his body to focus on healing, but wasn’t able to find pasture-raised chicken that fit his Paleo needs. His family ordered 50 chicks as part of an experimental hobby when they first moved to Temecula, and now Pasturebird is the largest pastured poultry farm in the world and official supplier of chicken to the LA Clippers and Dodgers. On this episode, we get into the problems with our food system, why pasture raised chicken is important, industry myths, sustainability, how to read labels at grocery stores, regenerative vs. factory farming and what this means for both plants and animals, glyphosate and its long lasting impact, the importance of buying directly from farmers, hidden truths about farmers markets, soil health and the environment, ancient wisdom from indigenous practices, and getting back to our roots by finding the joys of nature at any age. Paul was kind enough to share a discount code exclusively for the POW community so be sure to check out their website below and listen to the full episode if, like me, you’re inspired to get your own chickens and want to know where to start!
