    Kentucky Grazed, Regeneratively Raised with Melissa Ballard from Bluegrass Beef

    Kentucky Grazed, Regeneratively Raised with Melissa Ballard from Bluegrass Beef

    On today’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast, you’ll meet Melissa Ballard. Melissa lives and farms in the beautiful Bluegrass State of Kentucky, along with her husband, Josh, who is also a veterinarian.  If you had told Melissa 20 years ago that she would be raising and selling grass fed beef for a living, she would have laughed. But life is funny that way, and Melissa now truly believes her passion and purpose is to provide people with beef that is raised in a way that is healthy for the land, healthy for our cattle, and healthy for our bodies.  

    Melissa shares her story with us today and also shares how Local Line has helped take their business, Bluegrass Beef, online. 

    Be sure once you’re done listening to Melissa’s interview you check out my interview with Jennifer Webb, Local Line’s Customer Success Manager, to learn more about local line and the service they are providing to growers to be able to sell from farm to table.

This podcast is the cluckin’ best.

Katelyn... I’ve been listening to you nearly all day everyday as I weed gardens at work. I am starting from podcast 1 and working my way through. I can’t get enough of it all! The message behind highlighting women in ag, regenerative ag, showcasing both big and small, organic and non organic farming, farming of livestock and plants, is helping shift the way we understand food, think about food waste, and connect to our survival source as a community and species.
Thanks for all the hard work and time you invest into this podcast, your husband should eat his words! You aren’t crazy, you’re courageous and cluckin awesome - I fully use that term now, my previous potty mouth got a little cleaner thanks to the rural woman podcast! 10/10

I love this podcast!

I'm recently engaged to a 4th generation Saskatchewan Rancher, and just moved out to their family farm last fall. Listening to all the stories from women in ag is so inspiring, and every episode always leaves me with more ideas to try! This spring I am planting my very first vegetable and cut flower gardens. We also recently had our first beehive delivered, and I am currently saving for a duck and chicken coop! This podcast has made all my dreams feel achievable, and helps me believe one day I'll be able to quit my town job and farm full time. Thank you so much Katelyn for always finding the best ladies in the industry for interviews! You keep my drives in to work (and my Instagram feed) full of smart, driven, and powerful rural women!
