#StillRanching: Native Acres CoFounder Jacy Lippoldt

Started by five friends who wanted to close the divide between consumers and the ranchers who raise the beef that they eat, Native Acres is a direct-to-consumer meat company that brings premium protein straight to your door.

As they say on their website: “You have a doctor, barber and chiropractor… but do you have a personal rancher? When you decide to trust us to be your personal rancher and our Native Acres meat shows up on your doorstep, we know that you will not be disappointed and will be able to taste the difference of home-grown beef.”

Western lifestyle and agriculture reporter Kirbe Schnoor talks to Jacy Lippoldt about Native Acres and what it means to them to be able to send beef straight to their customers at a time when it can be hard to find in the grocery stores.

“We don’t do our job because we want to be thanked,” Lippoldt says. “We do our job to feed the world. And especially during this pandemic, it’s pretty special to see people support you and support what you do for a living. We’re really blessed to be able to live this life.”
