Is your beef grass-fed and grain-finished?
The cows are grass-fed and grain-finished. They live on a natural diet of fresh green pastures, but we supplement their feed with some good old-fashioned grains during the final weeks before they're ready to be processed so that your burger has more flavor than ever.
Does your beef contain antibiotics or hormones?
We only administer medicine when it is absolutely necessary for the well-being of our animals. We don't want an animal to suffer if there's something we can do about it, but unfortunately, this means that sometimes they will be exposed and need antibiotics. However, this is extremely rare. Unlike in a feedlot situation where diseases run rampant, we're careful about what our cattle are exposed to in order to minimize their risk of disease.
Are your cattle raised in a feedlot?
The cows at our ranch are given some space to roam and graze, which helps them stay healthy. We have a few acres per animal, which is necessary on a primarily grass-fed diet!
What freezer will I need?
1/8 Beef Share - requires approx. 1.5 - 2.0 cubic ft. of freezer space. This will fit in a regular fridge-freezer compartment.

Is your beef dry-aged?
Our process ensures that the beef will be dry-aged for 14-20 days to increase tenderness and flavor. We have found this time frame optimal as it produces some of our most flavorful meats, which you can taste with every bite!
