Bolen Livestock: Farm-to-Table Beef in Jaffray

My guest today is Brody Bolen. He's 28 years old and a third generation rancher and butcher based in Jaffrey, in the southeast corner of BC. Brody's grandparents established the ranch in 1957 as a commercial cattle operation. Brody and his wife Kashtyn now live there and operate a farm-to-table business model in which they're directly involved in every step of producing their beef, including delivering it themselves to households around the southern interior.  

Brody's nothing if not a cowboy and a cattleman. But he has another passion you may not have guessed: goats! Press play to hear about it!
