One of our joys at This Old Farm comes from helping beginning farmers. Each year we host several Farmer Appreciation meetings with a topic of education as well as a time to get to know both existing and future farm customers. In the spring of 2019, John Meyer from Illinois came to one of our meetings and took home the prize of 50% off a single processing invoice. At the time, I did not think about that invoice having 6 hogs on it. John was able to cash that certificate in for over $700 off his bill.
As a thank you for our services this year, he wrote:
Dear Everyone at This Old Farm,
Thank you for making the entire process of customer service relatable. Thank you also for your consistency. Due to the fact that you are knowledgeable and confident in the service and products you offer, my wife and I are empowered to make more and better decisions about how we want our meat processed which is very important to us. Furthermore, as a fledgling farm we can’t thank you enough for all the time you have taken, kindness and patience shown, and generosity given to help us launch successfully. I have heard it said by you all, “We are successful when you are successful.” You mean it by backing it up with meaningful action.
