If you want to know where your food is coming from and how it was raised, then our beef is for you. No growth hormones or antibiotics are ever used. The cattle spend most of their lives on our pasture and are raised with great care. All the beef is also dry aged for added flavor and tenderness. This makes our beef delicious and better than you will find at your local super market.
What is dry aged beef? Why we go to the extra expense of dry aged beef.
Dry aged beef doesn't come from supermarkets. It comes from us and our local processors who take the extra time and care to allow the harvested beef to "chill out" in a climate controlled cooler for a minimum of 2 weeks. Dry aging of the beef is an added expense because of the decreased weight because of evaporation, increased processing time, limited space, and additional refrigeration.
So why do we bother? evaporation=greater concentration of flavors enzymes breaking down connective tissue= more tender meats
The dry aging allows the natural flavors to be enhanced while making the meat more tender. Qualities we think are worth the added time and expense.
