1st GoPro video in our butchery.

As I said in my previous GoPro video about our laying hens it is my intention to bring these raw or unedited from the farm to you. Not only is our beef nourishing, as opposed to feedlot/grainfed beef which is not, it is also Carbon Negative Beef. Which means that it heals the earth. No […]

The wastefulness of filet eaters.

The wastefulness of filet eaters.

Hello At least twice a week I have a request to supply a client with rump, filet and sirloin (only 7% of a beef carcass). That is all that chefs want. 80% of the reason is because their patrons want those cuts and 20% because they were never taught at chef school how to use […]
