Our new delivery schedule. More regular deliveries to our clients. Better ordering system.

Dear integrity food supporter.

At 8.30 last Thursday night, when I was still on the road doing deliveries, I realised that we needed a dedicated delivery man (carrying beef carcasses as per the picture below into our 0.3 Celsius dry ageing facility is a man’s job. It is actually the job of the farmer who raised the grass fed beef). Also that we needed to increase our delivery service to twice a week.

We have now found our man and as of next week our delivery schedule is as follows.

Monday – Cape Town and Somerset West

Tuesday – Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl and all the wine farms in between.

Thursday – Cape Town and Somerset West

Friday – Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl and all the wine farms in between.

We also have a new email address set up specifically for orders. Please click on farmorders@spier.co.za Please email us your order.

The cut off time for the Monday/Tuesday deliveries is 4pm on Thursday and the cut off time for Thursday/Friday deliveries is 4pm on Tuesday.

If you click on BUY MEAT at the top of the page you can see all the places where you can enjoy/buy our produce.

If you don’t know what we do, then learn about an Eggmobile here and learn about the only beef operation in the country that officially reverses global warming.

Finally if you buy free range eggs at the shop under the impression that the hens are free range then you have fallen victim to the biggest scam in agriculture.

Our delivery man is Jangia Phiri who has worked with us for 4 years. He has worked on the cattle and the chicken operation. Here he is with bunch of lusern flowers that he picked for a client.

We are back to our original beef label.

Dear Reader

For the past few weeks we have been killing for our off the farm grass fed beef label. Details here. However as the summer has got going our cattle have gotten fatter and we are now back to Farmer Angus Beef as per above photo.

Our beef remains the only grass fed beef processed on the farm that the animals were raised on, in the country. It is also the only beef operation that generates Carbon credits or reverses global warming. Details here.

Thanks for your support.

Jokes about farmers and farming.

Dear Reader

If you have any jokes that are better than the three posted below please add them to the comments page.

1. When does a farmer complain the least?

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ANSWER

 

February….that is the month with the least days.

Joking aside for a moment. Here is an article I wrote almost 2 years ago about the pressure the retailers (big national chains) place on farmers.

 

 

2. Farming is like having an affair with your neighbour’s wife.

It might seem like fun but it is a very bad idea.

 

 

3. A farmer named Van was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Limpopo when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.

The driver, a young  man in an Armani suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the farmer,

‘If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?’

Van looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers; ‘Sure, Why not?’

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg , Germany .

Within mere seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data is stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the farmer and says, ‘You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.’

‘That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,’ says Van

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

Then Van says to the young man, ‘Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?’

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says,

‘Okay, why not?’

‘You’re a Member of Parliament for the ANC Party’, says Van.

‘Wow! That’s correct,’ says the yuppie, ‘but how did you guess that?’

‘No guessing required!, answered the farmer. ‘You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, with my taxpayers money, to a question I never asked.

AND you don’t know a thing about cows…this is a herd of sheep
