My name is Charlie Payne and I am one of the owners and day to day manager of all farm operations. My path to agriculture is far from traditional in the world of modern agriculture. I have always had a passion for cooking and believe that good food must come from great ingredients. Over the past several years I began to find it harder and harder to find quality proteins, and this lead me down the path of starting Covey Rise Farms with the help of my father and co-owner John Payne. Together we strive to produce the highest quality and natural meats that we can. We truly believe that if you want to eat healthier and with integrity, you must know where your food came from and the farmer that raised it!
