A Hearty Beef Barley Soup Seasoning "Buckboard Barley"
Regular priceSale price
Buckboard wagons were a traveling necessity in the old west. We honor those old days when good, home cooked food was always waiting at the end of the trail, at the finish of the day. Our rich and hearty beef barley soup is named after a buckin' horse named Board. He saves the day and you will too when you dish up this soup to hungry diners. A favorite of men in particular and cowgirls (like us!) with hearty appetites!

And of course the story on the back of the package about Board the horse :
"There's an old west wagon called a Buckboard. The name of the Buckboard started with a horse named Board. No one stayed on Board when he bucked! Young cowboys tried their rodeo talents on Board as their friends along the corral gleefully called out “buck, Board, buck"! Board was ornery and he sure wasn't happy. One day a young fool cowboy hooked Board up to the wagon by mistake and sent the cowgirls off to town.
The ranch was in a panic knowing what could go wrong. Turned out... Board loved the cowgirls and he loved pulling their wagon! He became the chosen steed to take all the cowgirls on their travels. Everyone from then on called the wagon the Buckboard transport and it stuck. Enjoy this soup in honor of old Board."
