Sometimes something fantastic happens that makes you stop and reflect. For me, that event was Friday, February 24th, at Norton Brownsboro Hospital. As you may have read previously, Foxhollow Farm began a partnership in January with Superior Meats to provide our 100% Grassfed Beef burgers to Norton Hospital’s cafeterias. Every Friday, Norton staff and patients can now enjoy Foxhollow Farm 100% Grassfed Beef burgers for lunch. On this particular Friday we shared our burgers with Mayor Greg Fischer, twenty or so representatives of our local media, Superior Meats, Norton Hospital, and Sarah Fritschner of Louisville Farm to Table.
What was truly unique about this experience was not just sharing a meal with our civic leaders and friends, but that so many new people came to claim a seat at that table. Individuals in our community are fighting for local food and farmers, sustainability, and healthier foods. I looked around the room on that Friday and saw all the faces that worked for months, even years, to make this a reality and was invigorated. This is why we do what we do at Foxhollow Farm. To make change. To share healthy, sustainable beef from truly happy, healthy cattle to everyone in our community. Norton Hospital is taking a giant leap in the right direction. Now we know it can be done. I look forward to working with other members in our community to provide Kentucky raised, 100% Grassfed Beef burgers to more institutions who care about the health of their employees & customers, the land, and our state’s economy.
