My mother, Roxanne, fondly referred to as the “Chief Cow Officer,” is freakishly strong. She’s a spry little gal at five foot one, and although 69 years of age, I would probably put my money on her in a grudge match.
She bops from chore to chore, wiggling her entire body between square bales to hunt down free-range eggs, or wrestling a 200-pound pig to administer some much needed TLC. And let me tell you, nothing gets one’s spouse to jump off the couch like their five foot one, 69-year-old mother-in-law wrestling a 200-pound pig, by herself.
Quote, from my husband…
It’s just so emasculating when she does that.
Like I said, she’s freakishly strong. And now, I officially know why:
My mother has eaten our Farmer Girl ground beef for much of her adult life, and her muscles prove it. So in true Farmer Girl fashion, as soon as my oldest could gum down food, I started putting our ground beef on her plate. Now that’s probably not a statement often heard from a young mother, “I just can’t get enough ground beef on my toddler’s plate!”
But I just knew that our ground beef had all the good stuff my little one needed – tons of protein, no sugar, all the good omega-3 brain-building fats, and about as many calories per serving as a yogurt.
Now our nutritional testing proves it. And, it’s what I know and trust from my youth on the farm as a Roxanne-in-training farmer girl. I want my children to have and value vitality and strength, like my mother has – especially my two girls.
We don’t talk about diets or being skinny at our dinner table, we talk about strength: Strong muscles, strong brains, strong conquerors-of-the-world. You know, like a superhero.
This is why Farmer Girl started
– to provide meat that nourishes and strengthens the human body, rather than weaken it with weird chemicals, hormones and who knows what else. How did we get to a place where a cornerstone of the American diet, meat, is so, well, gross?
Meat that promotes good health is out there, being raised on small farms like my family farm. So in a superhero effort to bring strong, healthy meat to the citizens of Metropolis, Farmer Girl was created. We’re not sure if it will work yet, but we’re sure tryin’!
I hope 2014 is a superhero year for you and your loved ones. And, of course, I hope Farmer Girl Meats is helping you along the superhero journey. So get out there and eat some strong Farmer Girl meat folks! Let’s conquer the world! (Or maybe at least a 200-pound pig).
As always, I hope you are enjoying your good meat, and happy and healthy eating to you in this New Year.
