Every year we scramble to find gifts that will show the people we love just how much we love them. For the last five years or so, in addition to a few wrapped gifts, we always give "experiences" to each other. These have included entries to half marathons in fun places, trampoline park visits, ski trips, camping trips, and many other adventures. These are always the best gifts of all but every once in a while a really fun gift shows up under the tree, too.
Good things take time and there are no shortcuts. Years ago we bought some land that bordered us. I (Amanda) was not excited about the purchase. The land was covered in mesquite and tarbush, growing zero grass and looking like nothing good could possible come from it. John knew better. Honestly, I don't know if he ever met a land parcel he didn't want to buy. Sigh.
Our journey from row crop farmers to having a hand in raising our beef every single step of the way includes including our genetics, our pastures, developing a locally grown finish feed ration, and construction our own processing facility. We know the beef is well raised because we are there every step of the way.
