Ranch updates from a busy summer

It's been a busy summer on the ranch, and for some reason all of a sudden it's August. Here's a few updates...


We have been getting decent moisture and the Sandhills are covered with ample vegetation- it's a welcome relief after the last three years of drought and one of the toughest winters that anyone can remember in the last 40 years.

With all the rain, haying has been a struggle, but the next couple of weeks the weather looks to be heating up, and hopefully the haying equipment cooperates- as sometimes it has its own mind.


A couple of big things this summer- Bailey Jones is back. It has been a huge blessing to have the NC State intern back for her second summer. She just makes every day better with her attitude. She's been living with me this summer and I may have bribed her to do most of the cooking.

The D'Ascolis have two new additions to their family- a gangly lab puppy named Roy and a new grey horse named Frank that have both settled in well.

AI'ing (the original AI-artificial insemination) went great and now just keeping fingers crossed for bred cows.


As I'm sure you have seen- we have paused shipping until September 1. We are beyond pleased that UPS did not strike. I had received a call the morning the negotiations completed to do an interview on the potential of a strike with NBC, and a half hour before the interview, the deal was signed. I'd love to take credit for the negotiations, but we all know that is not true.

You can still order any time and as soon as September 1st is here (hopefully with some cooler temps) we will get your beef to your home. If you need beef sooner, we are still offering Southwest and Alaska Air shipping which is not only cheaper, but beef shows up frozen every time. We love shipping by air and highly encourage you try it. Of course we always have delivery options to Nebraska and Colorado.


Thanks for following along and please continue to stay tuned! Follow us on Instagram and Facebook @wilsonflyingdiamondranch for more updates!

Hi Jaclyn, I really enjoy your blogs and was fascinated watching your interview with Peter. Although I wasn’t fortunate enough to grow up on a ranch, I did grow up on a 500 acre dairy farm in Wisconsin (in the 60’s, 70’s and 1/2 of the 80’s.) From there life has taken me down many roads but I still long for those simpler days (Mom and Dad had all the stress, I was obliviously and just loving life!) Thank you for reminding me of what I had, the fond memories, and family close by. Please continue to keep blogging, I love following along and in a part, living vicariously on a working ranch.

Really enjoyed the youtube video. Your energy is amazing. I can't believe the prices for your tri tip are so low. Can't wait for you to start shipping again.

Grew up on a dairy farm, barn burned and then worked for neighbor dairy farmer thru H.S. and Jr. College. Those were the happiest days. 80 yrs old now living on the east side of KC and with very little encouragement would drive to your place to pick up some tri-tip steaks just to save shipping costs. 😉. Wife and I still travel, but my son and family, knowing we're going for beef, will want to go with us and buy some beef also. Hopefully, you will pack it for the ride back to KC.. Wishing the best to you and yours.

What a blast from my past! My favorite teacher from elementary school in NJ was Mr. Quackenbush. He was such a character. I distinctly remember him wearing ties and socks, with ducks on them really super fun, especially for an elementary student!

I saw you on Peter Santenello's Youtube channel and really enjoyed everything about you and your family ranch. May your legacy live on and may the youth understand that ranching and people like yourself make America great! Without your heritage this county is nothing.

I have been lucky in business and hope to start traveling soon and look forward to seeing your state in the near future.

I wish you all the good fortune and my god bless you and your family along with those lovely cows.

My gosh what a great bunch of people have left comments here. My dad was a lobsterman during my childhood in NJ. I grew up eating so much lobster I would feed it to the family dog under the table! Boy do I miss those days !
