With big size beefsteaks for sandwiches and hamburgers, foodservice is a big part of the business for Deardorff Family Farms, Oxnard, Calif., said sales manager David Cook. But, like others, Cook characterized foodservice demand as “slow and quiet.”

“I know the restaurant business is tough for the high-end restaurants. The more reasonable priced restaurants are doing OK, or at least holding their own,” he said. “It’s kind of like the real estate market. The sales on small and medium-sized homes are OK, but there are too many McMansions on the market.”
