Got goat? The Vanguard Ranch does, and it’s ready to eat

Renard Turner and his wife Chinette founded the Vanguard Ranch Natural Gourmet in Gordonsville, Virginia, 25 years ago, and through creative entrepreneurship and wise land management and animal husbandry practices they have built a value-added business model that works on a relatively small scale.
Their ideas about sustainability and regeneration on a global scale inform their daily practices. And they are encouraging African American people of the next generation to think about leaving the big cities and buy land for farming and homesteading.

Renard will be a plenary speaker on the Panel:  Adding Value Through the Way We Farm: Agripreneurship and Equity at Regenerate this year.
