delivered to your door

how it works

We are not a feed lot! Every 2-4 weeks we move the appropriate number of animals into rotation.
Each harvest may be different from the last and this means we may not always have a perfect supply of each cut you are looking for.
We estimate the number of animals needed
We produce nutrient-dense, nose to tail cuts
Next we move our animals to a USDA certified processing facility to make our custom nose to tail cuts and mixes.
This not only leads to less waste, but greater nutrition! You get more vitamins and bioavailable minerals while helping the environment!
We custom pack & deliver to your door
We put together each box by hand to your specifications and insulate it well for its journey.
 
Finally, it gets to you fresh & frosty (probably not in a tractor), ready for you to enjoy. Just get it into the freezer ASAP!

our meat

All of our meat is 100% grass-fed grass-finished, all natural, no sugar added, no added hormones, never fed antibiotics, non-GMO, gluten-free, optimized for omega-6 to omega-3 ratios below 2:1, free-range, cage-free, and raised with love.
BEEF & BUFFALO
Our beef and buffalo are raised 100% grass-fed and grass-finished, free to roam the land as they wish, and the health of the herd is of our utmost priority. Pasture-raised animals ensure the health of our land, so the least we can do is provide them a healthy, happy life. Our beef and buffalo provide nutrient dense meats with essential fatty acid profiles the way nature intended for humans to eat. Grain-fed animals simply cannot provide the level of nutrition our animals can. See Products
LAMB
Our lamb is sourced from Australia on pasture it's entire life, 100% grass-fed and never fed grains. It is our only product we offer that is sourced outside of America as we’ve found ranchers from Australia simply do it better! Our primary goal is to source the best most nutrient dense meat that we can, and our lamb is just that. Our lamb provides much more nutrition than its grain-fed counterparts, and a healthy balance of the essential fatty acids.
CHICKEN
Our chickens are raised in small, uncrowded batches to avoid over-stressing our animals.  They are raised on pasture eating what they find on the land, in addition to our proprietary feed to optimize their nutrition and create a nutritional profile that is best for us humans. We can assure you they are never fed corn or soy and are never rushed to full-size! Our chickens provide an essential fatty acid ratio of 1.5:1, far below what you will find in other “pasture-raised organic chickens”. We take a lot of pride in that our chickens are the most natural and healthy chickens for humans. See our Omega labs
PORK
Our pork goes beyond organic and pasture-raised. We have done thorough testing to make sure our pork provides the best essential fatty acid ratios, below 2:1, something not found in any other pork! Our pigs eat what nature provides, grass, critters, and all. We also provide them with natural supplements for the perfect omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. Most other pork pales in comparison to the nutrient density of our pork, and we work hard to provide the most nutrient dense pork that we can. Learn more about out Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratios and see our lab results. See our Omega labs
 

ONLY THE BEST MEAT

The animals health & wellbeing are at the center of our operation. We use sustainable and regenerative practices to ensure the future health of our soil.

why grass fed?

Our animals are raised grass-fed and grass-finished for their whole lives. This is how animals have lived for all of time, and we are simply letting nature do its thing. Grass-fed meat is the most environmentally friendly way to raise animals while providing the most nutrient dense foods for humans. We are committed to raising the healthiest animals we can to provide the healthiest meat that we can, and this is why we do extensive testing to make sure our meat is the most nutrient dense on the market with a balance of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids below 2:1, compared to ~20:1 in grain-fed animals. 
FOR YOUR HEALTH
Grass-fed animals provide better nutrition and essential fatty acid profiles that are optimal for humans. Healthy animals make for healthy meat and healthy meat makes for healthy humans! Grain fed animals do not provide us with the ideal nutrition, and that's why we care so much about making our meat as nutrient dense as we can!
FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Animals and the earth work in symbiosis - it’s a give and take! When our animals graze on pasture, they are participating in the natural cycle of taking nutrients from the plants and recycling them to the earth to make for healthy soil to feed the plants once again. This is essential to the health of our land and feeding our animals.    
FOR THE ANIMALS
Grasslands are the species appropriate diet for our animals. When animals are fed grains they are deplete of many nutrients and their essential fatty acid profiles that are out of whack. Just like humans need proper nutrition, animals do too. Put simply, grasslands provide the full spectrum of nutrients our animals need to thrive. 
 

QUALITY YOU CAN TASTE

We take our farming practices seriously. We provide the optimal living environment for our animals and raise them with love with respect. We believe this is translated into the most delicious and nutrient dense meat for humans to eat.

 

Once you taste our product, it will be extremely hard to go back to what you were eating before. Don't say we didn't warn you.

why nose to tail?

This is a good question! It may seem a little odd at first in our modern society. Just remember though, we ate this way for hundreds of thousands of years and even millions of years as pre-humans. Look in any cookbook before about 1950 and you'll see these organ meats & odds-n-ends included in normal fare.
Eating nose to tail means eating the muscle, organs, and everything in between! Every bit of the animal provides the human body with all the vitamins and minerals we could ever need in the most bioavailable form. Iron, selenium, vitamin A, B vitamins, the list goes on!
We love our steaks as much as the next person, but there is a vast array of vitamins and minerals in organ meats like liver, heart, kidney, and spleen that you just can’t get from eating muscle meat alone. Some people even refer to these foods as nature’s multivitamin, and we couldn’t agree more. These items are the true “superfoods” that have allowed humans to thrive through all of history.
True nose to tail eating takes advantage of the bones and bone marrow, too. Not to our surprise, both are so amazing for the health of our own connective tissue and bone health. Bone broth and marrow gives us access to the collagen, healing amino acids, and so many bioavailable minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
We appreciate everything our animals have to offer, and that is why we take advantage of these bits and pieces. Ancestrally, we did not waste these nutrient dense parts of the animal, rather these were the parts that were most prized. All of our animals are raised with love and care, and we pass that on to our consumers in its most complete form.
