Who We Are


Jack Thrift Anderson

Jack has worked for the last five years on livestock operations in Oklahoma and California. Right now he’s busy tending to the other details of launching Cuyama Lamb, and he will write his bio soon.


Jenya Sarah Schneider

Jenya has focused on regenerating ecologies for a decade. In college she studied theories of religion, decolonialism, and ecology, graduating from Brown University in 2010. Since then she has worked toward the restoration of ecosystems, including the Elwha River watershed, and the restoration of healthy human communities, helping to develop a nature-based mentorship program for girls in the San Francisco Bay Area. After meeting Jack at Quail Springs in 2016, he quickly wooed her with the vision of Cuyama Lamb, which spoke to her deepest dreams. She's happy to consider so many four-leggeds amongst her closest friends.
