Local Foods, Time is Now

Technology and local food sales are no longer strangers. Thanks to the efforts of several intrepid people in North Carolina, this concept it taking off and it could have a major impact on where our food comes from in the future, how safe it is and who is making the money.

I am forwarding you this invoice that was automatically sent to one of our farms, RS Central High school FFA program, based upon an Internet order. Notice in the attach block above. A .pdf file appears which is a barcode sticker to be printed out on a thermal printer and attached to the package. The package is Breakfast Sausage which, unfortunately, happens to be the progeny of the other Billy Ray, which we are now selling over the internet to commercial and residential customers at $5.00 per pound. Thank you for all your help in making this dream come true. Enclosed please find a photo of a new freshman sustainable ag student with the newest round of Billy Ray piggies, born last week.

Check out this link and scroll to the bottom of the page and see the variety of pork being offered and the prices that we are getting for red meat marbled pork.
