See below for comments from directors just like you, and learn more about how the Shady Brook Farms® brand can enhance your operation.

“Superior quality” rating from Washington County Schools

Maryland’s Washington County Public Schools (WCPS) has been a Cargill Shady Brook Farms customer since the spring of 2012. Jeffrey Proulx, the district’s Food and Nutrition Services Supervisor, has found Shady Brook Farms offerings to be “of superior quality – even surpassing their competitors.” In fact, Proulx is so impressed that he believes his team “will be able to grow our program around the quality of products that Shady Brook Farms offers.” Quite a compliment! See his product-specific comments below:

“Finding a quality hot dog that limits fats and reduces sodium is a challenge. But their Turkey Franks (#700196) reduce sodium by 36% when compared to traditional meat franks, and provide a flavor and consistency that meets student acceptance. And Shady Brook Farms’ Turkey Pot Roast (#700267) is a great heat-and-serve item that shreds apart at the touch. It can be used in whole-muscle turkey sandwiches or as the centerpiece of traditional turkey dinners.”

A strong recommendation from Hartford Public Schools

Hartford Public Schools has a student enrollment of approximately 24,000 students in 47 schools. Lonnie M. Burt, the district’s Food and Child Nutrition Services Director, appreciates the high product quality and great service they receive from the Shady Brook Farms® brand and Cargill:

“First and foremost, the quality of Cargill products is unparalleled in the marketplace. The new Shady Brook Farms whole muscle turkey pot roast that is available for USDA processing is of very high quality and meets our standards. It was well received by students, staff and administration. Secondly, the customer service we receive from Cargill is exceptional. The ordering of food products is very easy and the professionalism of the staff is refreshing. Finally, the accounting and billing processes of Cargill are excellent and we have had no problems, which – with our workload and time constraints – is very important. I would recommend Cargill and Shady Brook Farms products to anyone considering doing business with your company.”
