The Ranch To Door Philosophy
How many pit stops does store bought food really make before arriving at your dinner table?
The answer might surprise you if you’re not familiar. It’s not uncommon for foods found in grocery stores to travel from the farm where they’re produced to a processing plant thousands of miles away. The journey doesn’t stop there. Many foods are then shipped across the country to be packaged. From there they are distributed around the world to different destinations to be sold in stores, finally arriving at your home on your dinner plate.
This incredible amount of travel costs us in many ways. The food loses its vibrancy and nutritional value as it zips around the globe in planes, trains and trucks. We also use an enormous amount of fossil fuels to facilitate all this transportation. It seems like an awfully high price to justify the “cheaper cost” of imported foods!
Of all the imported foods that could be eaten, imported meat definitely seems like the least appealing. Meat that has traveled a long time, from far away and mysterious sources doesn’t seem like the best choice for health and happiness. It’s not uncommon for meat in the US to be imported from overseas.
This is why we at Beck & Bulow live by the phrase “Ranch To Door”. Our meat is local to New Mexico and remains that way for the entire process. The animals are raised on our ranch, taken to the local butchers, and packaged at our Santa Fe warehouse by our own employees. From here the meat is sold at local farmers markets, and also shipped out directly from our warehouse to your doorstep allowing access nationwide to meat that is incredibly fresh, vital and American in every way.
