We are facing uncertain and tough times as COVID-19 changes the world we knew. What seemed so normal that we all took for granted just a few weeks ago now seems so distant, as we scramble to find a shred of sanity, community, and togetherness in isolation.
We’ve been thinking about our loved ones like our daughter Nina whose walk is now a run, or our parents who are all over 70. We are worried about our siblings who are a continent away on the west coast, our friends scattered around the world, and our customers, some just blocks away. We’re thankful that Nina is too young to grasp what’s happening to our world; and especially thankful that on top of the stress and panic swirling around us, we don’t have to also homeschool her while working from home. And we’re thankful that everyone is home, together. There’s no place we’d rather be and, well, the alternative is unbearable.
For us, at J&E SmallGoods, we always focus on bringing the highest quality, humanely and sustainably raised meats to your dinner table. We find our mission more important now than ever before. We want to help you feed your family a taste of nostalgia in our sausages, but with the intention of providing the best ingredients and craftsmanship we can find. From small family farms who practice regenerative agriculture, to working with small batch quality producers, we promise to bring you nothing but the safest, most honest sausages we can.
We’re devastated by what is happening to our friends in the restaurant industry who have been forced to lay off staff who are, as we know, more like family than employees. The masseuses, the tattoo artists, the barbers and so many more. many of the industries that we often take for granted until we realize that we can’t get a haircut right now, let alone go grab a drink with a friend.
Life is different now.
But our farmers are still raising animals and, thankfully, we are all still able to cook at home for the ones we love most. We are spending the next month helping our longtime farmers find direct customers for the protein that usually winds up on a restaurant menu. We’re also working tirelessly to lower our costs in the name of accessibility.
As long as social distancing is recommended, we will be providing a 20% discount on all of our sausages, as soon as they are back in stock. Follow us on Instagram @jesmallgoods or sign up for our mailing list to find our when the next run of sausages will drop!
We sincerely value your support.
We want you to know that we are here for you.
Even in isolation.
(If you’re up in the middle of the night, don’t read the news. Don’t watch the Tiger King. Shoot us an email, we’re probably awake!)
