Sean's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped THB Grasslands add bison to our 100% grassfed finishing herd. The additional bison will move us closer to scale while increasing the regenerative impact on our grazing pastures.
I grew up in a small rural town in the central valley of California. Agriculture was the cornerstone of the economy and culture. The values taught to me growing up led me to trust more than I probably should have when living in a city like Los Angeles as an adult. Learning that the food we buy can be unhealthy was discouraging and motivating. I wanted to build a company with the values I had growing up that produced healthy food. The impact of my early years had a profound effect on why I continue to build The Honest Bison and THB Grasslands. Today I am blessed to live with my wife and two kids in Camas, WA. I travel regularly to Wisconsin for business at THB Grasslands. My dream is to build THB Grasslands into a profitable ranch that will provide for my families well being and that of our partners, future employees and customers. Is there a past story that demonstrates your entrepreneurial spirit? There are many, but I can share this one as I believe it relates to what makes Kiva great. Early in my journey into the food industry, I was shocked at how poorly some of the best food on earth was marketed, distributed and sold. When determining the problem and the opportunity to solve I naively thought it would be easier. It wasn’t, but what has been inspiring and continues to fuel my entrepreneurial spirit are the thousands of customers who remind me how much they appreciate what we are doing and how we are doing it. We are on a worthwhile journey, together, all of us, connected. That fills my spirit.
