First of all, Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! We appreciate all you do for your family. And thanks to all those who gave the gift of Watson Farms today. We’re honored to be a part of saying thanks to Dad.
If Father’s Day happened to slip up on you this year and you need something last minute let us bring your attention to our Herd Membership opportunities.
One of the best reasons to “run with the Herd” is for the special discounts that we are able to offer this distinguished group. Many times we’re able to offer some small discounts on things like ground beef and whole chickens, but at certain times when we are heavy on a particular product we can offer things like 50% off Brisket and Leg Quarters! You read that right – 50% off our Leg Quarters (including the bundle) and Beef Brisket!
Another huge reason to sign up for a Premium Herd Membership is the Free Shipping that you receive on all of your orders while your subscription is active.
Finally, if that doesn’t win you over then maybe the free Watson Farms T-shirt will. When you sign up for a Premium Membership we give you a free T-shirt with our logo on the front. After signing up for a Premium Membership, just contact us to request a size and color and we’ll get that in the works. We have several colors to choose from so we’ll try to get you something close to what you prefer. (The software integration is currently not functional for this to be self-service.)

Our cattle herd has just started grazing our stockpile. When discussing cattle production, the term stockpile is used to describe a supply of standing grass that has been reserved for grazing at a later time. Usually fescue is used for stockpiling as it has the ability to stay green and palatable when other grasses become undesirable to cattle.

For years, we have heard from our customers things like “Thank you for all you do” and “We really appreciate your hard work.” But if we’re not careful, as business owners we can let these praises fade into the background of our daily routines. So over the past couple months I’ve tried to make mental notes each time that I or one of our team members encounter a customer that offers some words of encouragement. I have to say I was a bit surprised at how many customers offered their glowing feedback in a given week.
It truly is extremely encouraging to know that you all put a high value on what we are trying to do. There have been many times over the past 15 years that these words of encouragement have come at the perfect time when finances were unsure, logistics were falling apart, animals were not performing, or weather was adverse.
These encouragements come in a variety of forms such as:
- A hand written thank you note left for our delivery driver
- Prayers for our farm
- Your smiling children greeting us as we deliver your order.
- You coming down your driveway to meet us as we deliver your order just to mention how thankful you are for what we’re doing
- Suggestions for how we can do better
- This list could go on and on…
So why is this the case when so many other businesses seem to struggle with customer satisfaction? And how can we have such loyal fans knowing that we have definitely made our share of mistakes?
