Growing Our Team! – Pasture Posts #80

Here’s the weekly roundup from Watson Farms and your direct connection to your farmer. Enjoy the latest edition of Pasture Posts!

We like to keep all of you up to date when we have things happening around here, so this edition of Pasture Posts will serve to do that.

First, we are announcing that we are seeking to add another position to our wonderful team! This person will manage our farm store as well as spearhead our social media efforts.

We feel like the ideal candidate for this position would be passionate about our farm’s mission of providing pasture based proteins to our local community. We would look forward to this person becoming thoroughly familiar with our methods and the why behind them so that they could effectively present these points to our store visitors as well as those who follow us online.

This person would also take customer calls, so being knowledgeable about our products and offerings would be a must as well.

We feel like there are many potential customers around us who simply don’t know we exist, and this person would help expose our farm and our mission to these folks.

So if you know of someone who is great with people and social media, then have them take a look at the job description we’ve prepared. We are excited about all the opportunities for growth that we are seeing, and we’re looking forward to finding the right person to help us with some of this growth!


Farm Store and Office Closed on Monday

We also wanted to make sure that everyone knows that the office and the farm store will be closed tomorrow for Labor Day. We rarely do this, but we will be busy processing chickens anyway, so we thought it would work out better this way. Thanks to all those who regularly pick up orders at the farm and shop the farm store! We appreciate you guys so much! Hope to see you soon!

Our partnership with Wild Hope Farm continues this fall as they are working hard to provide you with superior organic produce that can be delivered to your door right along with anything else that we deliver on our van.

Product Spotlight

Now is a great time to stock up on one of everybody’s favorite items! STEAK BUNDLES are on sale this week! Save 15% off the normal bundle price. This is the time to stock them in your freezers! Don’t miss out!

For some of our recommended products, check out our Featured Product Page.  You might find something that you didn’t even know we had!


Help us spread the word!

It’s now easier than ever to Give $15 and Get $15 through our Referral Program.  We don’t spend a lot of money of advertising, but rather we focus on producing products that people love and are willing to tell others about.  So we depend on word of mouth to find new customers and ultimately to heal more land.  

So in an effort to streamline this process we have made it easier to tell others (via email, Facebook, or Twitter) about Watson Farms.  And it’s all automated on the backend, so you don’t have to rely on us to issue the store credits manually.  Just head over to our Referrals Page and start sharing!


We re-use packaging!

We’ve seen a good response to our efforts in re-using packaging! Thanks and keep it up.  

You can help us reduce our carbon footprint by returning your CLEAN egg cartons and meat boxes. 

The main reason that we switched to plastic egg cartons a while back was because they are so much more durable than paper which could only be used once.  They also protect the eggs much better!

So if you have some egg cartons or boxes to return, you can just place them on your porch on your home delivery day.  Farm pickup customers can, of course, drop them off when you come to pick up your new order.  

***We can only re-use OUR cartons or boxes. Please re-use or recycle other boxes or egg cartons elsewhere.***

We redact your personal information found on your meat boxes when we re-use them, but feel free to redact to redact it yourself without damaging the box if you would like.  

Thanks for helping us re-use our packaging!
