LIVESTOCK EQUALS LIVELIHOOD

TANGO’S unique distinctive is that the ranchers are the retailers.
WHEN we were away from Vancouver recently, travelling back to our ranching operation, we
found this poster on the wall of the United Farmers of Alberta (UFA) farm store. It definitely
captured the story that we seek to bring back to the large urban centres where we directly sell
our 100% grassfed & finished galloway beef to the public.
To be able to meet the producer of your healthy food, to establish a relationship of trust in their
earnest desire to sustain the land and the animals who naturally graze there, be served by those
same ranchers, and
then enjoy the
gorgeous steak that
you took home to your
BBQ…, this is very
rare.
But the VITAL FACT
that this poster
represents, the “flip
side” of that urban
experience of direct
ranch-gate sales &
delicious juicy steak,
is that we small
ranchers (and
farmers, vegetable
and berry producers)
RELY ON our URBAN
BUYERS TO MAKE
THE DECISION TO
SUPPORT OUR
LIVELIHOOD!
There is a tremendous
amount of unseen and
unsung hard work,
physical risk,
conscientious care of
our herd, and the
daily realities of a
SEVERE FINANCIAL
ROLLERCOASTER due
to climate,
government taxation
and regulation, and
the influences of the
MASS PRODUCTION
and MASSIVE BOX
STORE PURCHASING.

With your purchasing dollar, support the LIVELIHOOD of the small, the local, the clean and
healthy, producers of your food. YOU AND YOUR DOLLAR HAVE A CHOICE.
