Karl Hudson and Mann Mullen own and operate Rare Earth Farms, LLC., a Certified Grassfed by AGW beef cattle and Certified AWA pig operation located just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina. While Mann has farmed all of his life, Karl returned to his farming heritage after a career in retail management when the two saw an opportunity to combine their farming and marketing experience to sell high-welfare, sustainable products to meet growing consumer demand across NC.
