The journey of our grass-fed beef sales really began last spring. I had been contemplating shifting our focus from selling out cattle at auction to selling our grass-fed beef directly to consumers. Originally my son, Trent and his wife Holly jumped on board pretty quick. They really got the 2S Ranch up and running online. We met a few times and before I knew it we had a website and several social media accounts! The rest is history from there!
Meet Trent: Trent is actually an elite triathlete who travels the world racing and training. He is very passionate about a healthy lifestyle and can be found at the ranch as often as he can get out there. He is our beef liaison and coordinates with Kevin (our ranch foreman) and the processing company.
Meet Holly: Holly is our social media and marketing director. While many of you thought it was me writing on social media and the website it is actually Holly. You can say in some sense she is my ghost writer (she may or may not be writing this post...)! She is the mom of two and works during nap times, bedtimes and sometimes in between. Holly also takes all of the photos for both social media and the website.
Meet Kevin: Kevin is our ranch foreman and runs the day to day operations at the 2S Ranch. He is the cow whisperer and a true cowboy. He makes sure that our cows are up to standard and that they are well taken care of. Kevin's knowledge of ranching is vast and he is the reason our beef tastes so great. Without him we would be lost! Kevin has a wife and two daughters.
After we got the 2S Ranch up and running online and figured out how we were going to handle the beef operations, we decided to open the Provision House and sell a few products that we really love. I knew that we were going to need some help! So let me introduce to you our Provision House Buyers!
Meet Andrew: Andrew is my youngest son and recently graduated from seminary. He is a husband and father of two. Andrew works part time as a youth pastor at a church in Plano, TX. He is working part-time with us buying products for the Provision House.
Meet Martye: As you know, Martye is my wife! She has a great eye for finding unique products and have I mentioned before... she loves to shop? This is really the perfect fit for her! Between babysitting grandchildren, leading a Bible Study Fellowship group and keeping me in line she keeps a keen eye out at all times for new provisions.
Meet David: David has been working for me for a number of years in a different capacity. Recently we decided that we needed someone who could be full-time helping lift the Provision House off the ground. David helps organize processes for our small company and works on our product development. He is also a father of two and husband!
