    Congratulations AgLocal…

  • Claude A. Rallins

    Winning is good. Better than the alternative. Naithan, having lived in the U.K., were you influenced by their local meat entrepreneur “The Black Farmer”, ?

    • Nait Jones

       Claude, the whole way that farm to table happens in Europe was an influence I must say.
