Our Customer Appreciation Day is Tomorrow!

SO!! The past couple of weeks have been hectic, trying to get ready for tomorrow, while at the same time getting all our regular work done (markets, kid soccer & school schedules, entertaining visitors!) for our big day! It's amazing how many projects that have been on the 'back burner' suddenly get elevated to 'very important' status! You know, weed eating, window washing, cleaning the oven, scrub the deck, put your name on the North side of the mailbox!
Tomorrow is the day we get to enjoy time with the people that help us fulfill our mission of providing safe & healthy meat products, and that share our values of sustaining our families, our communities and our lands. We have about 50 of our customers coming out to the ranch to join us for a pasture walk, a hay ride, and then a community meal. We will also make s'mores in the back yard fire pit and sip tasty beers and wines! Our guests will also help us 'taste test' about 10 varieties of lamb sausage we had made... The winning flavors will become new products.
Last year's event was tons of fun! We lucked out on the weather, and had a great time. Folks got to meet our snarky Llama, Shelby when we walked through the sheep, and some helped moved an electric fence and move cattle.
Tomorrow's weather forecast is showers and wind...30%. Oh well! That's life! Bring your ponchos and hats my friends!
