Behind The Scenes
There's quite a lot that goes into having a grass-fed steak show up at your door. Our farmers raise the animals on pasture. Our beef cattle, lambs, bison, elk and dairy cattle are all raised on 100% grass. All of our chicken, duck, turkey, and pigs are raised on pastures. They get plenty of sunshine because much of their time is spent outdoors. They aren't cooped up in a metal building all day. It can take nearly twice as long to raise an animal on grass, with no grains or added hormones and it takes considerably more pasture space.
Once, the animals are grown and harvested, they arrive at our processing facility where our expert meat cutters divide the larger primal portions into smaller cuts like steaks, roasts, sausages, and burger. These cuts are then vacuum sealed in packages and flash frozen in our -10 degree, state of the art, quick-freeze system. Once the packages are frozen solid, our warehouse crew moves the food to it's designated place in the freezer storage facility. They remain here until our trusty pick and pack team assembles your order. Every evening, a big Fed Ex truck backs up to the warehouse and we load it up with delicious & nutritious boxes of food to be delivered throughout the 50 states and Puerto Rico.
