Aspen Times article "A Whole-system Approach to Pork" By Jordan Curet Aug 16, 2014

Merrill Johnson never planned to be a farmer, but at 25 years old she is running a ranch, raising endangered heritage pigs and contributing to the sustainability of the Roaring Fork Valley. Much like a tomato pulled from the vine tastes much richer, she’s trying out a theory that pigs raised on organic fruits and vegetables taste better than something shrink-wrapped in plastic on the supermarket shelves. Johnson has developed an earth-conscious business model to bring better products to consumers while reducing the environmental impact of waste in the valley.
