About Dawnbreaker Farms

Dawnbreaker Farms raises pasture-raised and GMO Free chicken, pork, turkey and grassfed lamb. We use natural systems that mimic nature for the soil's health. Our nutrient dense meats can be found across the Triangle at farmer's markets, our monthly delivery programs and select restaurants and grocery stores.

Ben Grimes' story

As an urban kid from environmentally conscious Seattle I have always been drawn to environmental causes. I religiously recycled, took public transportation and reduced my consumption of consumer goods. Somehow that lifestyle never translated into the food I was eating until I came across Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilemma". That book opened my eyes to the environmentally disastrous food system that I was wholeheartedly participating in. I had no idea my food choices were leading to systematic exploitation and degradation of the same earth that I worked so hard to preserve. Overnight I began seeking out alternatives of how to create a more sustainable food system.

After many years that path led me to start Dawnbreaker Farms which has the three pronged mission to regenerate the ecosystem with livestock, generate a profit and livelihood for the farmer and teach others to do the same.

This commitment runs deep in everything that we do from the management of the animals, to the grazing patterns we employ and the way we treat farm guests and employees. We ambitiously strive to use this farm as the practical launching pad for the regeneration of our land, economy and our culture.
