Who is Hillbilly Nutrition
Hi! We are Gary & Tracy McCoy, otherwise known as, Mr. & Mrs. Hillbilly. We are first-generation farmers who came by way of a pig farm with no intention of doing so. We started out as foodies. We LOVE food. We love eating it, cooking it, and sharing it. Eventually, all this love for food led us to become impassioned by where our food came from. We started shopping at local farmer's markets and reaching out to farmers directly to find out more about their animal husbandry and farming practices. The more questions we asked, the more we became enlightened and intrigued to source more food from local farms.
Pretty soon, we found ourselves running a local foods co-op in our community sourcing every quality protein we could get our hands on. Grass-fed beef, pastured pork, pastured chicken, eggs, raw dairy, kombucha, local honey, elderberry syrup, and a handful of other foods. We spent about 2 years streamlining our local foods business. We spent time sourcing amazing food, taking and fulfilling orders, and managing the logistics to get more of these foods to anyone that wanted them. Meanwhile, we continued to gather more information about how the farms we were working with produced their amazing food.
Gary and I have always had a passion for the outdoors, we love camping and traveling to remote locations. We had a passion for living more of our lives outside and there was an internal flame that continued to grow each year to eventually live in a place where we could have a little more room to roam.
