Trailer for the Podcast Rare
We’re really excited to announce that we’ll be launching our new podcast, Rare, in September.
For the past six years, we’ve been traveling across the country meeting really interesting people who are trying to change the food system.
And we thought, why not share these stories.
We’ve talked with lobstermen from Maine, fisherwomen from Alaska, ranchers and farmers from Montana and Iowa, and others who have built unique careers in the food space.
We are continually asking questions about what’s going on in food today, and what’s going to be happening in the future.
For instance, why has a lobstering community in Maine embraced the work of Marine biologists? What compels business leaders to launch risky ventures that fly in the face of the conventional wisdom in the food industry?
We wanted to know how can individuals also take action to positively impact the food system?
We got to talk to chefs and others in the restaurant industry to find out how the food-to-table and the sea-to-table concept have grown and how they see their roles, supporting farmers, ranchers, and fisherpeople doing things a better way in their spaces.
As a Certified B Corporation, ButcherBox has made it its mission to improve the standards for raising animals, the livelihoods of farmers, the quality of food people serve their families and the wellbeing of our planet.
This podcast, Rare, is a window into how we are trying to rethink our food system by examining the lives of those rare breeds who are doing just that.
You can subscribe to Rare via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
We can’t wait to take you on this amazing journey into how the food space is changing for the better.
