We're In This Together!
These last several days have posed new challenges for all of us. But it is important to remember that your beef community—our ranchers and beef producers and their families—are continuing to provide a wholesome, safe food supply during this unprecedented time in our history.
Watch this space over the coming days and weeks for updated beef information, tutorials on ways to prepare and store beef, meal planning tips including using different beef cuts, cooking with leftovers in mind, and other helpful ideas.
And because so many of us (Yes...our staff included!) are balancing working from home with continuing school work for our kids, we will be providing links to educational resources and materials you can use for at-home learning.
In the meantime, there is always helpful information on BeefItsWhatsForDinner.com.
Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
