Anya Fernald is a serial entrepreneur, world renowned restaurateur, Iron Chef Judge on The Food Network, and the CEO and co-founder of Belcampo, a group of groundbreaking agricultural ventures in California and Belize, in sustainably farmed food through its organic farms, butcher shops and restaurants, as well as unique, luxury agritourism destination.
What started as one mom’s desire to feed her family the healthiest meat possible became a mission to revolutionize the industry from the inside out. Founded with a purpose: Belcampo creates meat that are good for people, planet and animals. Anya is one of the leading experts on regenerative agriculture, its importance for our planet and our health and has become a pioneer in the meat industry through founding one of the country’s largest regenerative animal agriculture farms.
On this episode of Marni on the Move, Anya and I sync up about the less than ideal realities of the meat industry, and how Belcampo is working to bring the highest quality, optimally nutritious meats to tables all across the country. She shares how working on farms in rural Europe sparked her passion for clean protein, and how eating meats without preservatives or antibiotics completely changed her health for the better. Anya sheds light on the importance of regenerative farming, what you need to know about meat and understanding labels and overall industry issues and factory farming
Anya dials us into to where her career in the farming, food, and cooking began, she shares her invaluable entrepreneurial wisdom and key lessons she has learned along the way, and she shares the exercise and wellness routines that fuel her for success.
