Taylor Collins’ and Katie Forrest’s life journey has taken them from restoring their bodies to restoring their land. The once-vegetarian Austin couple went vegan after health issues got in the way of sports training. When things got worse, they consulted a nutritionist who urged them to add clean meat protein to their diet. They did, and things quickly turned around. The entrepreneurs then founded EPIC Provisions, creating the world’s first grass-fed meat, fruit, and nut bar. The successful company was sold in 2016, and Taylor and Katie invested in a depleted Texas Hill Country ranch to demonstrate the potential of regenerative agriculture. Through their land stewardship, ROAM Ranch is coming back to life.
"We look to Mother Nature for answers," said Taylor. "If we just create the stage for her to do what she's been doing for hundreds of thousands of years, the healing will happen and it can happen really fast. And that's what we're seeing out here, which is really encouraging."
Taylor and Katie are thrilled to join the ranks of TPWF's We Will Not Be Tamed ambassadors. We Will Not Be Tamed calls us to appreciate the wildness of Texas, the vastness of our Texas spirit and why we should be inspired to conserve it.
