Dear Morgan family,

Just wanted you to know how much we are enjoying your delicious beef! We are sooo glad that we bought the 1/4 beef from your farm. Every cut is quality and delish! We plan on ordering again in the future. I haven’t had a chance to visit the Mars Hill Farmer’s Market but will soon and stop and say hello. Thanks again."
