Matt was our 2018 season  poultry agripreneur. His interest in farming started during in an organic gardening class at the U of O. He completed his bachelor’s degree in business administration, all the while cultivating his interest in better food. He discovered the ills of the industrial food system and decided he would like to make a change. The health and environmental benefits of purchasing pasture-raised animal products stood out as an important alternative. After a few years of working with the USDA, he left and began a 6 month internship with Deck Family Farm. Equipped with new skills, confidence, and his loving partner Mariah tackled running our Poultry Agripeneurship. Matt successfully raised and marketed, 2,000 Cornish Cross meat birds, 400 Jumbo Pekin Ducks and 60 Double Breasted Bronze Turkeys.  Not to be out done Mariah produced twins this December.
