Videos: A window into our farm

We know that transparency is a huge priority to our customers.  You want to know how our livestock live and are treated.  You want to know what they are fed and what they aren’t.  You want to see what a day in their life is like, so that you can be assured that you are actually making a difference in our food system by supporting a local family farm.  

While not all consumers feel this way yet, we can see that the number of those who do is perhaps growing faster than ever.  We especially see this in the number of new customers that we not only have seen in the past year or so, but even the past few months.  It’s been really great to see more people wanting to become informed about where their food comes from and wanting to truly make a connection with a pasture based livestock farm.  As this new wave of consumer demand continues, not only will our farm continue to adapt to meet it, but our nation’s overall food system will do the same.

So for this edition of Pasture Posts, I have included some videos from the past that do a good job of allowing customers to peer into our operation.  I also was able to shoot a video after feeding some hay to one of the cattle herds this morning where I show you how our cattle live during the winter.  These older videos are a great way for newer customers to get better acquainted with Watson Farms while returning customers might have also not seen them yet. 

Take a look and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel to be the first to know when we upload new videos!

Check out this video from just this morning showing how the cattle are doing and what they eating these days.
Check out this very popular video from about 4 years ago showing a typical spring paddock that our pigs live in.  
Here’s another pig video showing the happy group just after a move!

We have revamped our Referral Program!

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!

Product Spotlight

We’ve got several items to highlight this week.  First, we want to offer our Gourmet Ground Beef at 25% off!! So for this week only you pay $8.59!! Great time to stock up. Our Gourmet Ground Beef is a mixture of the following: Rib, Loin and Sirloin Sections!!! You can’t beat this price!

We wanted to also point out that we recently designated some of our beef inventory toward some Quarter Beef Bundles.  These quarters include a total of 14 steaks as well as 40 lbs of Ground Beef and plenty of roasts!  Its a great way to stock up on grass-fed beef straight from the farm while saving some money!

Lastly, we’re still getting some very nice extra large eggs from a couple of our hen flocks.  They’re feeling good in this cool weather so they give us a good many XL eggs.  Take advantage of a good price and on these before we retire one of our flocks.  

You can see ALL of our ON SALE products with the button below.

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.***

Thanks for helping us re-use our packaging!

Check out this ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review:

I’ve been ordering from Watson’s Farm for about 3 years now. LOVE their subscription box. It’s an affordable option for our family to get most of our meat from a reputable source. I especially love the ease of farm pick up, and getting to interact face to face with our farmers. The quality of meat is everything one could hope for. It comes prepackaged, frozen, and the box is clearly labeled with each item and weight. I get the 15lb box, and on average I would say I get at least 5-6 different cuts of meat, usually from at least two animals– sometimes even all three (beef, chicken and pork) depending on the time of year. My cooking has become more flexible, and we get to try new dishes we may not have thought of before. I have never, ever had a problem with their product or service!

We would greatly appreciate it if you would be kind enough to leave us a review.  It helps first-time customers purchase with confidence.

Thanks again for being partners in this endeavor of local, pasture-raised proteins that has truly transformed our farm.  We look forward to continuing this transition while serving you long into the future.
