Elizabeth Robinette

John Liu

Beth is the fourth generation of her family to work the Lazy R Ranch outside Cheney, WA. She moved home and began managing the business with her dad, Maurice, in 2010, after completing her studies at Western Washington University. She went on to earn her MBA at Bainbridge Graduate Institute, a small independent business school dedicated to using the tools of business for environmental and social good. Beth is also the co-founder of LINC Foods, a worker-farmer-owned cooperative food hub based in Spokane. Beth became one of the first second generation certified Holistic Management educators in 2015 after completing her training in Extremadura, Spain, with Byron Shelton. She has had the honor of teaching and studying holistic management in Turkey, Sweden, Mexico, and throughout the United States. Along with fellow Holistic Management practitioners, Sandra Matheson and Alex Machado, Beth is a co-facilitator of the New Cowgirl Camp, a 5 day intensive course for women interested in learning the ins and outs of regenerative ranching. Beth is married to her high school sweetheart, Matt and is the proud step-mama to Matt’s 20-year-old kiddo, Audrey. Beth is a very mediocre yodeler but this does not discourage her in the slightest.
