Jim and Birgit Martin of Martin Farms own a diversified beef operation that markets from gate-to-plate. The operation includes a Shorthorn and Angus beef herd. It also custom boards cows and sells purebred breeding stock and commercial cattle, which are finished and marketed in the farm's own small beef feedlot. This business has recognized that diversification and value adding help mitigate financial risks and serve the growing interest consumers have for locally-produced food.
