Tailor Made Beef

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

Public enemy #1 … it is not John Dillinger anymore

I just read an article that I thought I would never see. Sugar is now being called out on the carpet. Around 5-6 years ago I first head Dr. Robert Lustig of the University of California SF speak about sugar. Lustig’s 90-minute lecture, “Sugar, the Bitter Truth,” has nearly 6.5 million views on YouTube and […]

Another Happy customer wrote this nice note…

“Steve,   Your grass fed beef is the best tasting beef we’ve ever had. We previously lived in Colorado and had been buying our grass fed beef from different ranches there, for 10 years. We’re so glad we bought a side of beef from you last spring. Thanks for all of your hard work to make […]

Grass Finished by DESIGN or grass fed by default

I happen to feel our creator had a pretty good DESIGN in place before man messed with it. It seems that on the farm or ranch, the more we try to mimic nature, the better things get. During hurricane Andrew, in Homestead Florida, in one instance, every house in a 16 square block subdivision was […]

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. He wasn’t calling for work without wealth or humanity […]

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!) A whole is $3.75/pound hanging weight plus cutting fees A half beef is $4.00/pound hanging weight plus cutting fees I have quarters available now. (Sold on the take home weight of […]

“To Beef, or Not to Beef?”

…and now a word from our Well, actually a look around motion pictures about great chefs, great products, great taste, and then a few movies about companies that don’t seem to have our health as their main focus. Whatever you are searching for, there is a veritable buffet of movies about food. Over this past weekend […]
