We all have a story.
A chronicle of our individual lives or even a moment in time that helped to determine what makes us “unique”. Because each of us plays a vital role in the success of our families, our communities, and our country; each story carries a meaningful message in this journey we call life.
The above video is my story. A seven minute glimpse of Anne — the mom, the farmer, the American. In 2016, many of us spend a significant amount of time studying food: where it comes from and who grows it. We make a valiant effort to try to understand why is it grown in so many different ways across the United States.
I hope that my story will provide meaningful insight and transparency relative to farming and food production. It a story of love, pride, hard work, and technology — that is what allows our farm to be successful. Matt and I began our work as farmers 19 years ago. We spend each day committed to each other, and working side by side to continuously improve the way that we grow food.
Please take a few minutes to watch my story. Please take another minute to share it so that others can get a glimpse of life at a feed yard — a segment of beef farming that is often misunderstood.
The next few blog posts will talk specifically about my partners in the beef production cycle: from the ranchers that provide care for our cattle during the first year of their lives all the way to my brand partners that bring our beef to your dinner table.
Together, we will get a better sense of where your beef comes from!
