Our inspiring founder and head honcho! We don't have space to tell you everything you should know about Betsy, so we will just say she is a force to be reckoned with!
Julie has been with Betsy Ross Grass-Fed Beef and Sustainable Growth Texas since 2012. She is our farm manager and amendment mixer. Julie knows how to help, who to help and is always thinking about the animals we have.
Brian joined Sustainable Growth Texas in 2017 as our Houston office lead. He's the guy to call for commercial projects anywhere in the state!
He started working for SGT in October 2010, very near the beginning and is our longest tenured team member! Hunter's primary duties are the residential lawns in Austin but he also works on the farm (master tea brewer!), does ag sprays and commercial jobs. His favorite part of the job is the variety "so i don't get bored doing the same thing every day. I also enjoy being able to work outside."
One of our Houston based team members! Clay usually works with residential customers, whether inside the city or out in more rural areas. He also treats parks that we maintain regularly, or detention basins for municipal district detention basins and the like. Clay has been with us since late 2015.
Christian has been a member of the team since 2019 and works out of the Houston branch. He helps with servicing lawns and commercial clients. He even has been known to help occasionally with ranch jobs as needed. I tend to work with residential customers more than any other type of customer. His previous job was on an organic farm in LaGrange where he did all sorts of things!
