Tailor Made Beef

We strive to make the healthiest, nutrient-dense beef possible.

Buying directly from farmers has a disproportionately large impact on the local economy.

I ran across an article this morning that supports what I have believed for a long time; the industrialization of agriculture has not only lowered the quality of our food, but it took the life-blood (people, biology and minerals) off of the family farm. In this article, written a few years ago, Dr Rima Laibow […]

“Seven Blunders of the World”

  1. Wealth without work 2. Pleasure without conscience 3. Knowledge without character 4. Commerce without morality 5. Science without humanity 6. Worship without sacrifice 7. Politics without principle —Mahatma Gandhi To his grandfather’s list of seven blunders Arun later added an eighth: Rights without responsibilities. “… BALANCE, which was Gandhi’s central point.

Dr. Christine Jones an Livestock’s short shadow … when done correctly!

A friend sent me an article Dr. Jones recently wrote. It was very timely because I have been thinking about the methane production of cows. Now why would I be thinking about that? Because SOMEONE said that grass finished beef produces more methane than grain finished beef. Hmmmm. Really? What kind of animals, feed-stuffs and […]

Fall Harvest is coming soon.

Fall is here and the cattle are fat from eating Omega 3 filled, mineral-rich, toxin-free grasses. (There is a BIG story about how I achieve that!)

Whatever you are searching for, there is a veritable buffet of movies about food. Over this past weekend […]

Regenerative Agrarians: What’s needed above and below the surface

A Ted talk was given recently at UCLA  that I am sure is making Gabe Brown smile. A Carbon Dioxide talk for Millenials. Thin-air is not so thin these days. Finian Makepeace and Ryan Englehart really bring the simple solution to 400PPM Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere problem…a la Gabe brown and his soil regenerating […]

Where is Whoopie Goldberg when you need her?

After reading a recent Dr. Mercola article, my mind went to how Whoopie had changed the chior so dramatically in the movie “Sister Act” Perhaps she would come out of retirement for “Sinister Act” and we could finally get people’s attention drawn to a corporation in Monsanto Alabama. A couple of excerpts from Dr. Mercola’s […]

Friends with low faces

I just watched a video about some of the farmers who make up Maple Hill Creamery. Hey, I know some of those folks. I have seen it in the Boise Co-op and at teh Minneapolis airport. Anyway, a pretty good bit of telling their story here. And those friends with low faces…its the cows eating […]
