The Number One Comment

May 26, 2022

Good Morning and hello from your farmer,

Last week I mentioned that our team would be cutting & packing our beef this past Thursday & Friday.

Jake of course, with15 years experience, was well prepared for what to expect.

And, he complemented our team before he left Friday afternoon that he really enjoyed working with everyone and how hard they worked as well as how eager they were to learn.

The ladies that were here helping all had experience is gardening, canning, and processing deer, chickens, and etc. for their families. So, they know about work.

Well, late morning on the first day I started hearing conversation amongst the ladies and as I listened the common theme was "people have no idea what all goes into preparing the food they buy.

Most people would agree that for the most part people are far removed from the work that goes into growing, raising, gathering, processing, delivering - and the list goes on - the food that we must have to sustain our lives. Maslow, in his Hierarchy of Needs, classified food as the most basic need.

Yet today, for the masses, food (especially healthy food) is taken for granted like it will always be available. It's like the young girl when asked where does milk come from she responded, "from Kroger". In her world that is all she knew.

Getting back to The Number One Comment - even the ladies had no idea the hard work it takes to process a beef. Even with their similar experiences.

Task includes separating primal muscles with knife and human muscles, cutting and cleaning the various roasts/steaks and doing a good job with trimming so as not to waste any meat (that would be disrespectful of the animal). Needless to say that after several hours of steady standing and cutting they were starting to feel muscles that aren't used everyday.

Some of the changes you will see with our processing are steaks that are truly 1.25 inch thick as advertised, for example. Other things coming include "meaty" Soup Bones. This is a small part of the value of doing own processing. And, Jake has other ideas he's mentioned so be on the look out!

I would ditto Jake's comment and add how thankful and blessed we are to have our passionate team helping us.

There's always a lot to do on the farm. Thankfully, our hard work pays off in happy, loyal customers - like Eleonora who has placed 57 orders since we launched our website the summer of 2019. Thank you for your support!
