FOUNDERS' NOTE | CHEESESTEAK + SUSTAINABILITY

ACME Farms + Kitchen Locavore Boxes

It’s hard to believe that after roughly eight months of planning and coordination we are finally ready for Cheesesteak Week! That may not seem too exciting to most, but for our team to put rib eye steak into a Locavore Box it requires a lot of planning, a touch of magic, and A LOT of beef.

Did you know that for every 200 pounds of ground beef that is processed for us, that only yields roughly 20 rib eye steaks? When you do the math, you quickly see the challenge in storing up enough steak for everyone. For us this week marks a yearly milestone in the seasonality calendar that dictates what goes into our weekly Locavore Boxes. It also reminds us of our dedication to suppling sustainably sourced local food.

We hope you enjoy the Cheesesteak as much as we do as well as the other fall inspired meals and treats in the up coming boxes.

P.S. Plans for the weekend? 

We suggest heading out to Mama's Garden in Deming for their Harvest Festival. There'll be hay rides, pumpkin picking, games, treats, photos and more! It's one of our very favorite Fall events. Not to be missed!
