Paper or plastic, friend?

Remember the days when a real live person running the grocery checkout lane would ask that question?

Plastic was always my answer.

For me, no grocery store run was complete without the final self-issued challenge of bringing all my bags from car to kitchen in one trip. I needed those plastic bag handles.

But when it comes to Blue Silo, the answer is always paper.

Since the first pound of Blue Silo beef sold back in 2017, our customer orders have been packed in brown paper bags and stapled closed.

And there's actually a bunch of reasons why.

On the Farm 📸

The first calves of the 2022 fall calving season "hit the ground" in the last week. Our cow herd is split into two groups based on when they will have a baby calf. One calves in the "spring" (March-May), the other in the "fall" (Sept-Oct). Cows carry their babies for 9 months like humans, so they only give birth once a year. A "spring calving" cow will always calve in the spring.

"I remember what beef used to taste like. Now meat from the grocery store tastes like cardboard. I’m so excited to have a freezer full of beef again where I can just walk out to the garage grab what I need, thaw it out and I’m ready to go."
