#90 Reestablishing the Meat Industry: Cody Hopkins

Cody Hopkins is a physicist turned first-generation farmer and founder and CEO of Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative. He has spent more than a dozen years developing a vertically integrated sustainable livestock farm with an unwavering vision of creating a farming business that is focused on the compassionate treatment of animals, sustainable farm practices, and transparency to the end consumer. In 2014, Cody and his wife, Andrea Todt, established Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative, with their own Falling Sky Farm in Arkansas as one of the founding farms.

Grass Roots is a cooperative of family-run farms committed to the craft of small-batch farming—delivering only the best, most nutritious meat from their farms to your table. They raise every one of their grass-fed, forested, and pasture-raised animals with the highest standards.

Their Mission: “Healthy animals raised outdoors with sunlight, fresh air, and clean grass. No hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs needed.”

Grass Roots Co-op has grown from 6 to over 20 farms and has been featured on The Today Show, Food Network, Bulletproof Radio, and many other.
