Cate Havstad is a designer, organic farmer, and custom hat maker nestled in the high desert of Central Oregon. As the founder and creator of Havstad Hat Company, Cate has created a heritage brand who’s designs can be found around the world adorning an eclectic mix of customers featuring both western and metropolitan styles. In addition, Cate and her husband Chris holistically manage a 300 acre organic farm, Casad Family Farms, on which they grow polycultures of vegetables, herbs, hays, grains and raise animals, all influenced by the principles of biodynamic agriculture. In partnership with the Savory Institute, their farm is an EOV (Ecological Outcome Verification) farm utilizing the institute’s scientifically-based approach to monitoring grasslands and croplands for regenerative outcomes of management. Along with their organic food production, their organic hemp crop is used exclusively by Onda Wellness, the first ever Land to Market certified regenerative CBD company. In 2021 Havstad launched her newest endeavor, Range Revolution. Range Revolution is the first verifiably regenerative leather luggage company with a focus on building fully transparent, regenerative supply chains in the United States. The mission of Range is to create timeless leather luggage pieces that offer easy options for consumers to make conscious purchases that actually benefit our earth and our people in measurable ways.
