Who is Mission Lamb?
I want you to meet the Azevedo Family. They are the love, passion, and faces behind Mission Lamb.
Spencer and I have known Grant and Shurina Azevedo since 2008. We have watched our little families go from the dating stage, to the engaged and newlywed chapter, to the “crazy business idea” phases and here we are today……..
I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that these two amazing people weren’t part of the reason we jumped in with both feet when it came to becoming first generation ranchers. I can remember like it was yesterday. It was New Year’s Eve of 2012 and Grant was sitting in our kitchen on a bar stool explaining this dream he had of going into the sheep business and becoming a sheep rancher. Insert the crazy face emoji. And you know what- HE DID IT!!!!! Him an Shurina bought those wooly critters and started Azevedo Sheep Company 7 years ago! Since then they have grown their operation into a commercial sheep herd added the cutest 2 little boys, Keegan and Eli, and have a passion for raising a family in lifestyle that is slowing dying.
The Story Behind Mission Lamb
After watching Grant and Shurina jump head first into this, Spencer and I knew we had to join in on the craziness and so we started our cattle herd about 4 years later. It’s a funny thing about this industry- it gets in your blood. And the thing I love the most is how closely it can bring you together. The highs and lows that are part of ranching, farming, and agriculture are like no other. And to have friends who are like family to share it with makes this journey even sweeter. It has been an absolute blessing to be able to go and help them process sheep and have them a part of our brandings. Awww man, all the feels!!!!!
So here is the SUPER EXCITING PART……… About 2 years ago when I decided to sell ranch direct beef, part of that dream was figuring out a way to bring others along with me that could share in this boxed beef venture. My goal from day one was to collaborate with other small businesses in the industry to offer their products as part of our boxes. To my very core, in my bones, I just feel it so passionately that there is enough room for us all at the table. And in an industry that is constantly under fire, why aren’t we joing forces and building strength in our numbers.
So in complete “Jess” fashion I decided that I needed The Azevedo Sheep Company to be our ranch direct lamb providers. And as I do so well, I just kept at it. Bugging them is what some might call it lol. But I just knew in my heart that these two passionate believers needed to help me offer premium quality meats to YOU!
