Jacqueline Bedke of Tierra Mia Organicos | Consumer Health, Animal Welfare and Environmental Stewardship | Free range and organic chickenJacqueline Bedke of Tierra Mia Organicos runs her farm on principles of consumer health, animal welfare and environmental stewardship. Tierra Mia is a free range  organic chicken and egg producer in Panama. I don’t recall who introduced me to the company, but I’ve been a fan for a while now. Last Thanksgiving 2020, I decided to cook a free range chicken instead of turkey. Tierra Mia was my go to.

Jacqueline invited me to come see the farm just before the Thanksgiving holiday. She gave me and a good friend a wonderful impromptu tour, showing us the many hen houses, pastures, the processes for egg inspection and packaging, the farm’s land rehabilitation projects and more. I was blown away seeing what Jacqueline has created. That day she also shared with us her philosophy on organic and sustainable farming. And she let us take pics with a one of her hens.

Tierra Mia Organicos supplies eggs and chicken to major grocers here in Panama including Riba Smith, Deli Gourmet and Organica. Lucky for me, Tierra Mia also does consumer deliveries for my local community.

In this conversation, I wanted to learn about and share Jacqueline’s story and the story of Tierra Mia Organicos. Our conversation turned out to be a story of true inspiration. Jacqueline pursued a dream, faced adversity and has come through the other side a shining star of the local business community here in Panama.

I was in a bit of awe the day we met in person at the farm, as my friend and I listened and walked with Jacqueline, learning about the operation and her philosophy. Jacqueline struck me as a smart, class act fighter. When you hear her story, I think you’ll agree.
