There has been so much going on here, I really thought I should keep track of all that’s happened. We started hearing about Covid-19 in February, but weren’t sure how it would really affect us. By March 6, we were beginning to realize this Corona virus was going to have a dramatic affect on all of us.
Activities across the state were being cancelled every day and businesses started to shut down. It became difficult to find groceries and at that same time our beef sales started going crazy. We got calls and emails and orders started coming thru on the website. We sold out quickly and our March delivery of beef was sold out in 10 days. We were thrilled to be able to offer our beef to customers old and new.
Since we do our own local delivering, the process for that became a little more challenging. We enjoy doing our deliveries and being able to meet our customers in person and visit about our product. But as the virus concern became more serious, we had to change the process. We still offer local delivery, but no face to face delivery. Our customers are notified when to expect delivery and then notified when the package is delivered. It’s not the personal service we like to offer, but for now, this will be the norm.
We plan to have more beef in inventory very soon and we’re hoping to be able to keep up. This is such a strange time for all of us. We look forward to the day when we can all feel “normal” again. It’s spring now and the grass is turning green and spring gives us the hope of new beginnings. We hope that is the case for our family and for yours too. Stay healthy, stay safe and eat beef!
Until next time.
