Meet Rodney and Jennifer Barrett of Barrett Family Farm.
Jennifer and Rodney have been poultry and cattle farmers in rural Arkansas for almost 20 years. But, after a series of major health setbacks, financial hardships, and moral crises, they finally decided to give it up. No longer could they reconcile their work with a greater purpose and as Rodney says, “You wouldn’t think we’d be doing something for so long that was detrimental to our own health.”
But, like most of us, they just didn’t know...until they sought the real truth.
Today - those chicken houses that would breed over 100,000 chickens every 52 days? They’re now giving birth to thousands of nourishing mushrooms. And the cattle? They’re like children.
This is their courageous, ethical, and compassionate journey from poultry to plants.
