For centuries it has been said that "You
are what you eat
", but it goes a bit further
than that. With GMO/GM/GE foods, pesticides, and herbicides now
dominating the USA (note I did not say world), not only are you
what you eat but also you are what you eat, ate
I am not sure just how strict the laws are as to what real Grass
Raised Beef comes under, but there is a way to tell. True Grass
Raised and Fed Beef will be extremely lean, which brings about a
good flavor but also it brings about a different way to cook it.
This is not the soft, fatty, meat in the stores. Man y farms
that grass raise and feed their herd then "finish them off" in a
barn or stable for 1-2 months with grains. This defeats the
purpose, remember, you are what you eat ate.
Cooking Hamburger: We make the patties then use Coconut
Oil to cook them in. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is good as well,
just make sure it is a good quality and in glass. Coconut Oil
though has no flavor so the meat flavor is maximized, plus
Coconut Oil has many benefits. Here is a link to Dr Axe's site
that speaks of Coconut Oil benefits. https://draxe.com/coconut-oil-uses
Cooking Steaks: You will want to tenderize them first, QVC sells
a nice hand held meat tenderizer we use. We usually marinate
ours overnight, but watch what you marinate them with as you
have a healthy piece of meat and could make it unhealthy fast.
Roasts: We usually slow cook our roasts with Potatoes and other
We charge for the calf and your price includes us taking
the calf to a Slaughter/Butcher House, Sellars Meats, to be
killed and cut up. You may buy a whole calf or a half a calf
from us, provided we have someone on the list that wants a half
beef. We give you the phone number where you will discuss how
you want the meat processed, cuts, thickness, per package, etc.
You will pay them for the 'Kill Bill" and then the processing
and package fee. You will also be responsible for picking up
your meat at their Office. Once we are paid we submit your name
to Terry and our hands are done with the transaction. He will
give you a day and time to pick up the meat and you must pick it
up at a mutually agreeable time. We do not pick up your meat as
we have nowhere to adequately store it. Sometimes people have
their own preference as to where to take the calf to in which
case you are responsible to pick the calf up while we are
loading that day. The price we charge is the same either way.
Down payments are non refundable, so make sure you want to do
It breaks down basically like this:
- 1-3 months prior we pre-sell the calves, at
which time 1/2 down payment is required.
- The week before we deliver the calves to Sellars
we send for the balance of the payment for the calf.
(Unless you are picking it/them up).
- We give you contact information and also give them your
- You contact Sellars and give them the specs you want
the meat processed by and discuss total price.
- You pick up at the Slaughter House (have some boxes to
place packages in).
- You pay the Slaughter House what you owe them.
This will be the first time in many years we are going to
once again try this. If it goes well we will continue this
and if not we go back to selling them at a Livestock Barn
where they will eventually end up being sold to the public,
after chemicals and unhealthy feed is fed to them, making
our beginning with them healthy totally voided. You have the
right to good, nutrition food and good health as a God given
right. No matter what you decide, we will continue to eat
healthy meat. I have spent my time in the chemo chair and
radiation table, so if you think this is too much or takes
too much time, consider the alternative.
