No one has to say ‘where’s the beef?’ in Middlesex County. It’s been conveniently cooked and vacuum-packed in a tasty gravy, ready to heat for dinner. The roast comes from beef born, raised and finished on Sandy and Kathy Smith’s farm. After it goes to the local butcher, the meat is cooked and packaged locally. The Smiths market and sell their product to local food establishments. Their innovation meets consumer demand for quick, easy and nutritious meals. It saves the environment by reducing transportation costs, and boosts the farmers’ and butchers’ bottom lines, while supporting the local economy.
