Judith McGeary is an attorney, activist, and sustainable farmer. After earning her B.S. from
Stanford University and her J.D. from the University of Texas at Austin, she clerked for a Federal
Appeals Court and went on to private law practice. During that time, she became a passionate
advocate of sustainable agriculture, and she and her husband established their own livestock
farm. After seeing how government regulations benefit industrial agriculture at the expense
of family farms, she founded the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance to promote common-sense
policies for local, diversified agricultural systems. Judith has been profiled in the Texas Observer
and Edible Austin, appears in the documentary Farmageddon, and has been interviewed on
numerous radio shows across the country.
Jon Taggart, and his wife Wendy, own and operate Burgundy Pasture Beef located south of
Fort Worth, a 100% grass-fed beef operation based on their core philosophy: cows raised
in a sustainable manner and in the most natural setting – on pasture – in the open air and
sunshine – and never with the use of growth promotants (hormones) or any other artificial
circumstance. They also own the Burgundy Boucherie, a country butcher market where they
age, cut and package their own beef.
