How a Norwegian Farmer Changed the Mind of the World’s Most Powerful Anti-Meat Activist

Raymund: A Hero From Norway - Peak Human Podcast


Listen on


Today's episode features a farmer from Norway named Raymund. Raymund is truly a hero because he hosted Dr. Gunhild Stordalen at his farm where he educated her on the benefits that animal agriculture can have on our ecosystem. Dr. Gunhild Stordalen is a very well known environmental activist and the founder of EAT which recommends a mere 14 grams of red meat per day as part of a "Planetary Health Diet."

As you’ll learn in this episode, Raymund convinced her that meat and animal agriculture are a sustainable and essential part of our food system. Throughout this episode, we discuss many of the problems with our modern food system. In fact, Raymund runs a decentralized food system in Norway called REKO which connects farmers directly to customers. We are hoping to bring something similar to Texas and eventually all over the United States!

At Nose to Tail, we have products such as primal ground beef that includes liver, heart, kidney, and spleen for all the amazing nutrients and none of the hassle or taste you may not be used to. We ship boxes straight to you and have free shipping options. We also have biltong if you want grass finished meat on the go. This is a traditional South African meat snack that’s air dried, soft, and delicious. We have body care products made from beef tallow and only a couple other natural ingredients.

Trying to change the world, when humans are fallible, is one of the common-themed problems in this world. Talk, don't coerce.

The Lancet report is the fertilizer.
