ABOUT US

FRESH MEAT

Our beef, bison, lamb, pork, and chicken are regeneratively raised in Texas & delivered to your door. The term “regenerative” describes holistic management practices that improve the health of the soil and land. Our beef, bison, and lamb are 100% grass-fed and grass finished. Our chicken and pork are pasture-raised on a low PUFA diet without corn and soy. All of our livestock are raised without the use of hormones, antibiotics, and pesticides.

OUR BEEF

Our beef is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished but we prefer the term “wild-crafted” because of the seasonality and diversity in our animals’ diets. All of our beef is completely free of antibiotics, hormones, and pesticides. We use holistic management practices to ensure that our cattle are happy, healthy, and giving back to the soil. These practices result in wonderful tasting, nutrient dense beef.

OUR LAMB

We source our lamb from the native rangeland of West Texas where they spend their entire life on pasture – 100% grass-fed and never fed grains. Grass-fed lamb is absolutely delicious and super high in protein. Our lamb is completely free from antibiotics, hormones, and pesticides. We’re proud to offer U.S. raised lamb since most of the lamb in the U.S. market is imported from Australia and New Zealand.

OUR PORK

Our regenerative pork goes beyond organic and pasture-raised. Our pigs eat what nature provides, grass, critters, as well as fruit and raw skim milk from local producers who can’t sell it. As we move our pigs from pasture to pasture, they impact the land just enough so that the soil and grass return healthier than ever. Since we are able to control the diet of our pigs, we ensure that it’s free of corn and soy and low in polyunsaturated fats, also known as PUFA. A low PUFA diet ensures that our pork is tastier and that our pigs are as healthy as possible. Our pork is antibiotic-free, hormone-free, and pesticide-free.

OUR CHICKEN

Our pasture-raised chickens move to fresh grass every day, enjoying sunlight on pesticide-free pastures. We don’t use any hormones or antibiotics. In addition to pasture raising, we use a non-GMO, corn-free, soy-free, organic feed. Our chickens consume a diet that is low in polyunsaturated fat, also known as PUFA. A low PUFA diet improves the taste and quality of our meat as well as the health of the animals. Conventional chickens are fed a diet that is filled with corn and soy, both of which are high in PUFA. The excessive amount of PUFA in the diet of conventional chickens lowers the quality of the meat and worsens the health of the animal.

BILTONG & DROEWORS

Biltong is a traditional South African air-dried meat that contains no sugar. It’s softer and more tender than beef jerky because it’s air-dried at low temperatures for 7 days instead of rapidly dehydrated at high heats like jerky. We also use no sugary sauces or marinades – just a few simple ingredients like people have been doing it for centuries.

Our meat is grass fed & finished and sourced from ranchers using traditional and natural farming methods. We then season long strips of select cuts of meat and hang them in custom-designed drying rooms to simulate the natural climatic conditions on cool, dry South African plateau regions. After 7 days of drying we slice and ship out our product to you, straight from our facility for maximum freshness.

Our version is unique to any biltong on the market as we don’t cut off that delicious & healthy fat. Humans can’t live on protein alone! We have the fattiest (and therefore most delicious) biltong on the market.

Like all things at Nose to Tail, we are quality-first and don’t take shortcuts. Every product we make is sourced from the highest quality purveyors. We also use no sugar, curing agents, nitrates, or any other artificial ingredients.

Biltong and droewors are perfect for people living a Sapien, Paleo, Keto, Carnivore, or Whole30 lifestyle. It makes eating whole foods easy on-the-go. Get full, get nutrients, and be happy 🙂

 

HANDMADE BEEF TALLOW BODY CARE

All of our body care products are handmade in small batches from nature’s first (and best) natural skin care product; beef tallow. We use as few ingredients as humanly possible to not interrupt the skin’s natural balance. While other soaps and products strip your skin of moisture and other necessary components, ours enhance and give back.

We also avoid all “natural” fragrances. This is an unregulated term that can mean just about anything. Our only fragrances are from 100% essential oils straight from nature. Do your own research on the difference between “natural” fragrances and essential oils and come back when you’re done 🙂

The majority ingredient in each of our body care products is tallow from grass finished, regeneratively raised cattle. Not only is the fat from these animals the most pure, but you’re doing the environment a favor as well. Regenerative agriculture “describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle” according to Regeneration International.

The first body care products were natural fats. That’s all we had access to for all of history. Our first mention of soap in recorded history comes from ancient Rome. “Ancient Roman legend has it that the word ‘soap’ is derived from Mount Sapo, where animals were sacrificed, and from where rainwater washed a mixture of melted animal fats (tallow, a foul-smelling substance also used to make candles) and wood ashes into the River Tiber below. There, the soapy mixture was found to be useful for washing clothing and skin.” According to the History of Soap Making

The other staple ingredients in our products are coconut oil and beeswax. These also have ancient traditions in body care products that go back thousands of years. We hope you enjoy using (to our knowledge) the most natural and ancestral body care products available today.

 

SMALL BATCH NATURAL SEASONING BLENDS

All of our seasonings are carefully concocted and each blend was chosen with care. We have the savvy meat-eater in mind and have the full array of flavors to cover all the bases.

First and foremost, we use no sugar, fillers, MSG, irradiation, flow agents, or any other wacky things that end up in other seasonings.

Next but equally as important, we use only fresh ingredients in small batches to make sure you get the most robust flavor possible. We take no shortcuts as with all of our products at Nose to Tail. We’re proud to have the simplest possible ingredient list with solely herbs & spices.

We also focus on the freshly ground herbs and spices instead of salt. Some cheaper seasonings out there are loaded with cheap salt to save money. As we’ve more recently found out, salt turns out to not be the enemy. We’ll leave the salting mostly to you, however, which will allow our seasoning blends to go a long way.

Lastly, we use glass bottles to avoid plastics and for a premium experience. Nobody needs phthalates sprinkled on their delectable dishes. We hope you enjoy every bite!

 

BEEFWEAR

We only source the best quality hats for our custom, one-of-a-kind patches. We take no shortcuts around here and hand-sew them to ensure lasting quality.

There are definitely cheaper hats out there, but at Nose to Tail we always choose quality over price. These babies are built to last – just like the people who wear them.
