Dave Carter is a pioneer in connecting organic and sustainable farmers with shoppers seeking healthy, wholesome food. He began his career in rural America as a journalist in small-town newspapers, but soon began working with family farmers and ranchers who were fighting to weather the economic turbulence in rural America in the 1980’s. He developed a passion for working with farmers who were pioneering the development of natural meat and organic food production. Appointed to the USDA National Organic Standards Board by Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman, Dave served as chair of that panel during the implementation of the national organic regulations. Over the past decade, he has helped lead the growth of the U.S. bison industry, has coordinated efforts to establish USDA organic regulations for pet food, and has been involved in several farmer-controlled marketing initiatives. He also has a small herd of bison that he maintains on a ranch east of Denver.
