Back 40 Episode 8: Cal Hunts the Farm

Back 40 Episode 8: Cal Hunts the Farm

After five months of dedication to the Back 40, every corner of the property is connected to a lesson. Luckily, there’s still one more chance to capitalize on everything learned this year.

Joining me for the final hunt of the season is Ryan Callaghan and his good friend Anna Borgman, a first-time hunter who grew up in a small town in Oregon. Anna is a part of a program called the Good Meat Project where she teaches butchering classes and promotes an honest approach to eating farm-raised meat. In the final episode of season one, we show Anna the ropes.
