This week, we will be talking to Neil Dudley from Pederson’s Farms, a direct-to-consumer meat company. Pederson Farms’ first product was a no added sugar, no hormones, no added nitrates, no antibiotics, vegetarian-fed, humanely raised bacon. The company now carries a wide assortment of products from hams to sausages, hotdogs, and deli meat. As the company’s vice president, Neil has helped Pederson Farms see a 1000% revenue growth over the past 10 years. Neil is passionate about the agriculture industry, sustainable farming and ranching practices, and the western lifestyle. In our interview, Neil and I chat about his background and the background of Pederson Farms, what sustainability looks like on the farm, his passion for cowboy life and western culture, the impact the tv show Yellowstone has had on culture, and the mentality of “No Days Off.” And when you’re done listening, be sure to check out Pederson Farms’ website as well as their podcast, Powdered by Protein Podcast that’s also hosted by Neil.
