EPIC is committed to redefining what constitutes a “healthy snack” by sourcing meat from the finest purveyors possible.
While “grass fed” and “organic” is generally synonymous with healthy and humanely raised animals, the EPIC team believes that these standards are only the beginning to a greater and more encompassing system that can create value and restore the land.
In our efforts to provide consumers with the healthiest snacks possible, we strive to source meat from ranchers that we deem EPIC. In particular, we get most excited about producers committed to holistic land management practices, such as those advocated by the Savory Institute and Joel Salatin.
Another alarming result of topsoil erosion and poor land management is the relationship between soil health and the nutrient density of the fruits and vegetables that we love. When soil is depleted of its natural matrix of microorganisms, our food is depleted of vitamins and minerals. Since 1975, USDA handbooks document a 50% drop in the amount of calcium in broccoli, a 88% decrease in iron content of watercress, and a 40% reduction in vitamin C in cauliflower. Properly managed land is the only answer to rebalancing the innate nutritional gifts of our food.
