I just got back from my annual road trip to California to deliver beef to our loyal customers. We had so much to deliver that we couldn't transport beef shares by coolers anymore. After extensive testing, Michael built our custom, insulated cooler for the back of the truck. Each quarter share has it's own compartment, makes the 700 mile trek packed with dry ice, and arrives frozen solid.
This year's trip was exhilarating. I delivered about 2200 pounds of beef to 6 locations. The 100+ degree scorching heat didn't dampen the excitement from new and returning customers alike. Friendship, recipes, and cooking tips were shared among all.
Why do I take 2.5 days to drive 1,400 miles, purchase 180 pounds of dry ice, and pack/unload 2,200 pounds of beef? The answer is so simple....it's for the love of our cows and our customers. I'm looking forward to my trip next year and will definitely have improvements!
