On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you’ll meet Kate Kavanaugh.

Kate Kavanaugh is an entrepreneur, farmer, butcher, nutrition therapist, and host of the Mind, Body, and Soil Podcast. She saw firsthand the power of meat to heal her own body, and in seeking out farmers and ranchers raising meat, she found the power of meat to heal land, too.

In 2013, she opened Western Daughters Butcher Shop in Denver, Colorado, with her now-husband, Josh Curtiss, where they source grass-fed and pasture-raised whole animals from local regenerative farmers and ranchers. Kate is now the host of the Mind, Body, and Soil podcast, where she is devoted to digging in deep with guests to find the heart of connection and what it means to lay the groundwork for generations to come. She is a citizen soil nerd, avid reader, and ground meat’s biggest fangirl. When she’s not running her businesses, you can find Kate raising pork, poultry, and grass-fed goats and cows on her 65-acre farm.
