Video Update! – Pasture Posts #32

Chicken processing means early mornings and long days, but I took a moment the other day after moving cows to give a quick update and to thank all of our new customers as well as all those who have been with us for a long time. We truly appreciate all of you, and we look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve you. Thanks for making a difference in our food system and on our family farm!

We also took a moment after packing eggs on Friday to take a quick family photo! Hello from Abby, Noah, Kelly and Matt!

Product Spotlight

As we load the freezer with chicken this week, it’s a great time to offer you some discounts on some leg quarters! Take advantage and stock up on pasture raised chicken!

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

Farm Day!

We’re pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Farm Day on October 23 from 10am – 2pm! We are building a list of vendors that will be on site, and we are offering FREE hay ride farm tours at the top of each hour. (Arrive at about 9:45am if you want to be on the 10am tour.) Our store will also be open for your shopping needs.

If you know of a vendor or food truck that would like to participate in this please put us in touch with them!

More details will be forthcoming in the coming weeks. We hope to see you then!

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.  

Thanks for helping us re-use our packaging!

Referral Program

If you enjoy our products please consider passing the word along to your neighbors, friends and family!  We don’t spend a lot of money of advertising but rather depend on customers like yourself to advertise for us if they are amazed by our products and customer service.

All you have to do is refer someone to us and when they place an order for the first time they will get a link to a form where they can say who referred them.  You and the new customer will receive a $15 credit!  So make sure they tell us your name.  Hit the button for more info!

Did you know that we have a webpage that displays all the reviews we have received?  

Check it out!

Check out this ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review:

“I have now bought two whole beef from Watson Farms. The meat is excellent. I drive over four hours just to be able to support something that is not just wonderful quality and a good deal, but also a moral choice that does good for a neighbor, the animals, and the earth. There is no downside. I only wish I could encourage more people to buy in bulk and from this wonderful family/farm. Thank you guys!”

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.
