Cory grew up ranching on her family’s fourth-generation ranch in rural Oregon. After graduating from Stanford University and working on Capitol Hill and in Los Angeles, she returned to the ranch to try a different production model and transitioned Carman Ranch to grassfed beef production. After a decade of successfully raising and selling grassfed beef, she joined the the Pasture One team to help create a national presence. In her role as the Director of Production, she leads the growing collective of pioneering grassfed ranchers. She is passionate about the ecological and human health potential of a robust grassfed beef industry as well as the potential to create economic opportunities for ranchers, more efficiently meet a consumer demand for healthy, humane beef, and put more carbon in the soil. She lives on Carman Ranch with her husband and three children.
