Pork roams free in a large barn and feeds on natural grains. Happy livestock & healthy feed makes for fresh delicious meats…. and yes, you really can Taste The Difference!
Is your farm organic?
Our farm is not certified organic, however, we do follow organic practices, also known as “farming the old fashioned way”. Unfortunately, the time and expense involved to obtain full organic certification is cost prohibitive to smaller family farms at this time. As our business grows and the costs of certification come down, perhaps we’ll be able to support the cost of full certification.
What is dry-aged beef?
Dry-aged beef is beef that has been hung to dry for several weeks. Drying evaporates moisture from the muscle creating a greater concentration of beef flavor and taste. Secondly, the beef’s natural enzymes break down the connective tissue in the muscle, which leads to more tender beef. Dry-aged beef is typically not sold by most supermarkets in the U.S. today, because it takes time and there is a significant loss of weight during the aging process. Dry-aging can take from 15 to 28 days, and typically up to a third or more of the weight is lost as moisture. This type of beef is served in higher-priced steakhouses and by select restaurants.
Do you use hormones or growth stimulants?
No, we do not use any hormones or growth stimulants on our farm. We believe in “farming the old fashioned way” and that nature provides the very best nutrition for our animals.
Do you use any antibiotics?
We do not use antibiotics as any part of our normal farm routine. A few times each year, we may use antibiotics if the life of an animal is in jeopardy as we are not willing to let any of our animals suffer.
Do you use pesticides or insecticides?
No, we do not pesticides or insecticides on our farm. As part of “farming the old fashioned way” so we use free-range chickens to control insects. The chickens are more than happy to eat every insect in sight.
Do your meats come frozen?
Yes, because freezing is the best means of preservation without the use of unnatural chemicals. After the appropriate aging, our meats are cut, trimmed, vacuum sealed and immediately flash frozen to lock in maximum taste and flavor.
