So you want to support a farmer?

We care that you care where your food comes from. We care about the quality of food we produce. We care about the land, and we care about our livestock.

We care that you care.

Only two percent of the population feeds the remaining 98%. It’s both a responsibility and a privilege. For this exact reason, we work seven-days-per-week, 365 days per year. We don’t go on family vacations because a first time heifer may need help calving. Time off for “Christmas break”? Forget it. We have ice to break and hay to put out. Hunger pains? They’ll wait. The cows eat first.

We care about the opportunity to feed you. And we pour our blood, sweat and tears into the product that sits on your table.

So you want to support a farmer — be it because the story resonates with you or because you’re passionate about what you put in your body. Here are some things to think about.

  1. Be careful what you say when talking about the “health” of a product. The language you use can be misleading at best and harmful at worst. Did you know that beef contains every essential amino acid your body needs? Maybe you’ve heard the rumor that beef is not “heart healthy”. Unfortunately, these studies were conducted when beef was eaten in extreme excess. The recommended daily intake of beef has no more cholesterol than any other protein source. Anything in excess isn’t healthy — even water! Do your homework before you put beef on the chopping block, and don’t spread those nasty rumors about the benefit of our product.

  2. Take a tour! You’ve found our blog, which means you’re one click away from finding our tour booking page. Come learn with us. You’re more equipped to be an advocate when you’ve seen us in action. And don’t worry — there are no silly questions. We’d rather you ask than walk around with false information.

  3. Elect agriculture-friendly officials at all tiers of government. We open our facility for folks to learn. We post on social media to be transparent. But can we let you in on a little secret? The fear of unfriendly legislation and regulations are what keep us up at night. You don’t tell a mechanic how to fix your car or a doctor how to save your life, do you? Let agriculturists tell you what we need. Elect folks who will be wise listeners.

So you want to support a farmer? Trust us. We want to support you right back. Let’s be honest though, that’s our job. We feed and clothe the world.
