Mike Callicrate is not like the typical Plantriotic Podcast guest…and he is also not the typical cattle rancher and beef supplier. Mike is a local farmer who has been working for decades to defend the small farm lifestyle and business model from massive food corporations that are trying to consolidate food production while polluting the environment and harming animals in the process.
Mike served as an advisor on the books Omnivores Dilemma, Fast Food Nation, and the films Fresh and Food Inc. Mike also sued IBP (later bought by Tyson Foods) for alleging unfair and discriminatory marketing practices.
Mike now supplies beef to the major cities of Colorado and is in charge of the entire process from raising the animals, to slaughter, processing, and distribution.
