On todays episode is Cassi Hammerness from Range Market. What started out as an MBA project, is now an amazing online market place for farmers and ranchers to connect with consumers around the country. This marketplace allows for ranchers to have higher profits and consumers to find various products and even search based on production techniques (i.e., grass finished beef, grain finished beef, organic, etc.). In our interview today, Cassi and I will cover the inception of Range Market, how tools like this can help ranchers struggling to make a profit, and the challenges of juggling a full-time job with a passion project. We’ll also talk about the importance of shortening the food supply chain, how they got word out of this website, and the future plans they have! Check out Range Market at the links below.
