Why We Do What We Do

Our Mission

“ Our mission is to increase food security and advocate for sustainable Alaskan agriculture.”
Alaska- The Last Frontier, has great potential for agricultural development.
We see the growth opportunity to feed the population within the state:

creating jobs,
stabilizing the food supply,
lessening food related transportation costs,
and creating a fresher food supply.

We’re driving for:
change in the ag system
 policy changes,
infrastructure development
and better the lives of the Alaskan population.

“The United States has lost more than 131,000 farms over the last three decades, with a 4 percent drop between 2007 and 2012 alone. The number of small farms in Alaska, however, jumped by 67 percent from 2002 to 2012.”

Rosa

Great Alaskan Guide
My name is Rosa, and I am thrilled to be joining the crew of The Great Alaskan Cattle Drive! My passion for cattle and agriculture started when I was young, hanging around my family’s dairy farm. I moved on to pursue a degree in Dairy Science, but have taken breaks along the way to work in cattle nutrition research, sales, and ranching!
I will always be a lover of cows and horses, and I will always try to learn something from every person I cross paths with. I am looking forward to an exciting and memorable 2021 season!

Great Alaskan Guide
It’s not often that one is given the opportunity to fly drones in the back country of Alaska while being part of a historic cattle drive, but here I am. I’m excited to take part in this amazing journey that’ll sure be an adventure. I was raised on a ranch in Wyoming where I gained a passion of agriculture and the wilderness. Growing up, an integral part was the horses that we cared for, from riding trails 15 miles back into the middle of no where to showing them in 4-H, our horses were everything. As I went through high school and into college, I’ve found I possess a knack for tinkering with technology and motors. From diesel trucks to drones, I can make them go. I can’t wait to see what this season brings!

Parker

Great Alaskan Guide
I have worked for different ranches and outfitters around Montana. I finished my final college course in the summer of 2019, however I decided to take a year or two off before pursuing a degree as a game warden in order to explore the country more. I have never been to Alaska before but have spent a considerable amount of time in the Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana. I enjoy leather-working, riding ranch broncs, hunting, and fishing. I look forward to seeing more beautiful country throughout the summer while working for The Great Alaskan Cattle Drive and being able to experience Alaska to its fullest. I am excited to meet you all and have a great 2021 season.

Great Alaskan Guide
I am beyond thrilled to be joining the team for The Great Alaskan Cattle Drive! I am a native of Louisville, Kentucky and have been riding horses since I was a kid. I spent the last four years in Colorado working on dude ranches, taking folks on horseback rides through the Rocky Mountains.
I am looking forward to my next adventure in the great Alaskan outback. I am really in my element when I am outside in nature and I am excited to expand my knowledge of the cattle industry and the agriculture of Alaska.

Great Alaskan Guide
Being Montana native , My passion for wilderness, mules, horses and cattle stem from a life dedicated to sustainable agriculture that has taken me all over the world to learn from cultural ways of farming and ranching. My passions are exploring vast wildernesses with my stock and broadening my cultural roots with traditional horsemanship, and stock manship and learning methods of ranching and farming that can sustain communities. Being a part of this cattle drive not only educates the world on Alaska’s food systems, and encourages knowledge to be more local in our 0ur
Personal resources. It’s a part of living history and above the love for adventure. I look forward to this 2021 season in the Last Best Place
