About Jason Chrisman


Howdy!
I'm Jason Chrisman. I live 50 mile northeast of Columbus, Ohio not too far from where I was born and raised. My passion has always been the outdoors. I just really enjoy nature. I currently manage a grass fed cattle herd, pastured poultry and a couple honeybee yards for a living. My adventures with livestock started in 2009 when I captured a swarm of bees in my backyard. Not long after, I took a 3 day queen rearing course in Wooster, OH and my hive numbers started growing. In 2013, I started searching my area for places to setup as bee yards. I contacted a local women who owned some farm land within 1/8 mile of my house. The land had no residents so it took so digging to find her contact information, once I did she gave me permission. About 1 week later, she called me asking if I would have interest managing cattle for a 3rd party on the same land I placed my bees on. At the time, I had zero experience with cattle but it was the same with bees when I started, so I decided to give it a try. Not long after cattle were dropped off on the farm, I added pasture chickens to follow the herd as they stripe grazed. It was a beautiful sight seeing everything work together in perfect harmony. The bees would work the clovers in the pastures, the cattle would graze them causing them to eventually re-bloom and the chicken would spread out manure piles which controls the fly population for the cattle and help boost soil fertility. What does better soil fertility do? It will grow lush healthy forage for all my livestock to forage on.

What is Patreon? Why are you using it? 
Patreon is a platform to help me connect with you on a much deeper level! If you're not familiar with Patreon, the concept is that you support a creator financially for the valuable content they create for you. In my case, it's mostly videos about the beekeeping, cattle or just life on the farm depending on which channel of mine you follow.
I believe in this concept with all my heart. It's helping creators bring more value to the world by making it financially sustainable long-term. Please consider supporting my work with a dollar (or however you much you like) per month, it would be greatly appreciated. 

How does it work?
 All my content is free for viewing on YouTube, but this Patreon account helps people like you support me directly. You pledge any dollar amount per month. This small pledge helps support my creative uploads and gives you and me a platform to become more familiar with each other.
As you know, it takes time and resources to create this content, both which require money. Your support helps keep the videos and blog post coming on a regular basis.

I thought your videos were free?
Yes! My YouTube videos are 100% free and I hope you are enjoying them. It really is no problem at all if you choose not to support me directly in this way. Please don't become a patron if you're low on money or are struggling financially. I know what that feels like and want you to take care of more important priorities first.
I would love to see you join in the conversation in the video comments on YouTube for those videos that mean the most to you. Keep in mind that one of the greatest gifts that you can give me is to share my content with your friends and family.

Patreon Support: You set an amount to tip every month to help underwrite the cost of video and blog post production. These things take time and energy not to mention time from the family. The small amount that you can give per month will help me to continue the educational demonstrations and help to teach other how to work with nature.

I Can't Afford To Pay, Can I Still Show Support?
Continue to follow and SHARE my adventures online. Sharing my content with your friends and family is perhaps one of the greatest gifts you can give to me. I love engaging with you through the comments on all my social media sites. You encourage me to keep doing what I'm doing. This is a very valuable form of support. Keep it up!
