Why eating beef liver will change your life

A forgotten health secret you can tap into Beef liver is the most nutrient-dense food on the planet! Our ancestors knew the power of eating liver.

What’s my vision for McKenzie’s Meats?

I felt sure others felt the same.  MM is the solution to that problem. But where to from here? As MM grows I’m taking time to think deeply about what I want the business to become. My vision is becoming clearer and as I learn more I’m drilling down into what I truly want. Every so often I catch myself thinking small, feeling overwhelmed by small problems like packaging or customer queries. That’s when I tell...
