Cory Carman

Cory Carman grew up in the isolated mountains of Northeastern Oregon as the fourth generation in a cattle ranching family. In college, she developed a keen interest in methods of raising food in harmony with the environment. When she returned to the family ranch in 2003, she sought to raise cattle in a healthier way—for people, the animals and the environment. Through running the family ranch, she saw that cattle, the cause of much environmental degradation, could also be one of our best tools in fighting climate change and growing healthy food. Fueled by the potential and the urgency of our challenges, she now spends her time at the helm of Carman Ranch Provisions, a company focused on finding market outlets for the cattle, pigs and other crops raised in manners that build soil health, respect animals, and support rural communities.
