As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to plague the world, most people’s lives have been turned upside down. Grocery stores have been ransacked and schools have been shut down. Many are now working from home, but many more have been forced out of work as businesses and jobs have been deemed non-essential and forced to shut down. Unemployment filings are at an all time high and no one knows just when this will end.
Mr. Rogers once said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mom would say to me ‘Look for the helpers.

This week, Simply Grazin’ founder, Mark Faille, helped fill the freezers of all of his employees by giving each employee 2 packs ground beef, 1 pork roast, 1 pack stew meat, and some rolled pork. Mark wanted to try to ease the uncertainty of the times by taking care of all those who help him take care of the animals on the Simply Grazin’ farms.
