When not working in her role as Manager, IT Strategy & Planning, Brianna Ringen can be seen taking care of her small farm where she is taking steps to be as carbon neutral as possible. The meat she eats comes directly from her farm or her husband’s larger farm nearby, where its raised on pasture or grass-fed and finished via specific grazing techniques. When she can’t grow and store her own vegetables, she buys locally from small farms whose growing methods she’s familiar with and supports. She’s now looking into using solar solutions to lessen her reliance on fuel, and to buy her first electric vehicle. Brianna also looks for small ways to be impactful, such as buying goods locally, making things herself, eliminating plastic and driving less.
