3: my wife, myself and my 90 year old mother

How often do you eat dinner made at home?
We rarely eat dinner out and cook most meals at home.

What's your biggest struggle to cooking meals at home?
Deciding what to make with what we have.

Before Blue Silo, where would you buy meat from?
Food4Less

What made you first try meat from Blue Silo?
Seen ad on Facebook and wanted to get better meat!

How do you usually buy from Blue Silo? 
Order online & pick up at the farm

Why do you shop that way?
This is very convenient for us and we love the drive to the farm, Kassi and Ian and their children are very friendly. It's a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the city

What is your favorite Blue Silo Product?
We love all of the pork, beef, and chicken but really love the hickory smoked and cured ham, and the pork chorizo is outstanding

How has buying meat from Blue Silo changed the way you shop, plan, cook or eat?
We only shop for our meats at Blue Silo now and planning meals are easier because we know it will taste so much better!

What difference have you noticed between Blue Silo meat & store bought meat?
The taste, quality and selection

What else do you want to share?
We buy the monthly portions of beef, pork and chicken. We also add what we desire from the farm store. The quality and taste are second to none! I have recommended Blue silo to all of our friends and family! We are a lifetime customer as long as there is a blue silo farm choice!

With two little ones we are always looking for what makes cooking easiest. Filling our freezers with bulk packages is such an easy way to make sure we have a variety of choices for dinner! We love that the ground beef doesn’t have nearly the amount of grease from a store bought pound.
