What We Offer
SWGLA strives to bring together those who are interested in any and all aspects of our mission – from production to consumption, from research to land management.
We offer education, training, outreach and networking opportunities, both on our own and through collaborations and partnership with other organizations and entities with similar goals.
We provide resources, sponsor events and offer marketing opportunities for member producers, beginning and experienced. We guide consumers through the maze of grassfed meat choices and regulations, introducing them to their local producer network and thus strengthening the grassfed community of the Southwest.
We advocate for our members when and wherever possible.
