US Beef Industry Update –

Historic Reopening of China to U.S. Beef - National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Craig Uden issued the following statement regarding the announcement from the White House that an agreement has been reached that will restore U.S. beef access to China:    “After being locked out of the world’s largest market for 13 years, we strongly welcome the announcement that an agreement has been made to restore U.S. beef exports to China. It’s impossible to overstate how beneficial this will be for America’s cattle producers. We look forward to providing nearly 1.4 billion new customers in China.

Cattle prices have increased 24% since the October 2016 lows. However, Nature's Gourmet Farm has actually decreased many of our prices. Here is a comparison of our premium grassfed beef as compared to Corner Market and Winn Dixie CAFO beef.

 NOTE: my website would not copy/paste the matrix from my newsletter. Bottom line:

Corner Market- $3458

Winn Dixie - $3186

Nature's Gourmet Farm - $3233

Seven Sons - $4534

*Corner Market & Winn Dixie are both CAFO grain-fed beef - poor stewardship of the Earth, Environment and animals

**Nature's Gourmet Farm & Seven Sons are both premium grass-fed beef and believe in Stewardship, accountability, and personal responsibility for caring for our Earth, Environment, and our Animals.

NOTE: the #/cut is from an actual whole steer processed by NGF in 2016. Hanging weight was 678#. Buying the whole steer Custom Processed vs. individual cuts would cost $2725 - a $508 savings. 

At only $3.50/lb. our Custom Processed Halves are the best family value - and 20% less than local competition.

It's About FAITH

This week represents the most important week of our Christian Faith - leading up to Resurection Sunday (traditionally called Easter Sunday) where believers gather to celebrate The Lord Jesus Resurection from death. Now, trust me, the last thing I want to do is offend anyone. However, with a bit of an open mind you may want to continue and check out some of what I share. Otherwise, we look forward to you joining us back next week where I hope to share my thoughts on recent legislative happenings. First, I believe Christian Faith is best defined by Paul

Customer's Speak Out

Last week's newsletter really struck home to many customers based on very positive responses received. Jennie, one of our Mobile customers (1st order April 2022 and has completed 18 nice orders since then) gave me permission to share her comments. “Maybe it will encourage others to get started,” she said. Jennie writes, “Wow, Ben, your newsletter really struck a chord with me today. Back in 2019 I was going through some personal trials that were causing me extraordinary stress, anger and frustration. I took up gardening as therapy. You may remember my t-shirt that said "I garden so I don't choke people." LOL! I had no clue how to garden so I started with a few pots of various greens that fall. They didn't do well, but
