Ryan and I met in Big Sky 13 years ago. We enjoy all the outdoor activities Big Sky provides. After having our two children we wanted to provide our family with food that we knew how it was produced and get back to our agricultural roots. And so the story goes:
I grew up on a ranch in southern Idaho. We raised hay, cattle and row crops, and I was very active in the FFA and 4-H, primarily raising and showing sheep. My experiences on the ranch helped me realize the importance of knowing where your food comes from and taking care of the land. I also realize the hard work, dedication, and time it takes for producers to put food on our plates. I’m very excited to tell their story.
Ryan grew up in South Dakota. His family owned and operated a construction company where he learned to operate heavy equipment at a very young age. He has been in Big Sky for the last 20 years and owns a successful real estate brokerage. When we met, he got involved in the agriculture life with my family. The regenerative way is what really peaked his interest. While trying to find a way for our family to participate in this movement, he found that the market for these producers was missing. He wanted to get their story and their product directly in front of the consumer, thus RegenMarket was born.
Together, we are excited to tell the stories of the ranchers, the farmers, the real producers, who care and love this place they call home. We are excited to bring you the best food on earth, for earth! We are excited to have you along on this journey with us.
