Why Organ Meat?

At Sonny’s Farm, we embrace sustainable and ethical farming practices, looking for ways to enrich our soil, generate a positive impact on our environment, all while nourishing our communities. One important aspect of our commitment to sustainability is the way in which we look for ways to use all of the parts of our animals after processing. We include a variety of unique cuts, including organs, bones, fat, feet, ears, tongue, and so much more. We believe that this approach honors our animals, respecting every cut and part.

One of the important benefits of offering organ meat to our customers is its valuable nutrient density. Organ meat is extremely nutritious, often referred to as "nature's multivitamin." Liver, for instance, is an excellent source of essential nutrients such as vitamins A, B12, B6, and folate, as well as minerals like iron and zinc. These nutrients are crucial for maintaining our overall health, from supporting our immune system to promoting healthy brain function.

Incorporating organ meat into your diet is an excellent way to reduce food waste. Many consumers avoid organ meat, which leads to it being discarded, despite its nutritional value. By embracing these often-overlooked cuts, we can make better use of the entire animal, which is more sustainable and respectful to the animal's life.

In many cultures, organ meat has played a significant role in traditional dishes. These foods have a rich history and are often deeply ingrained in the culinary heritage of various communities. From steak and kidney pies, to lengua tacos, to anticuchos de corazon, these “off cuts” can be a delicious star to your meal. By incorporating regeneratively farmed organ meat into your diet, you can connect with cultural traditions and culinary practices that have been passed down through generations.

Regeneratively farmed organ meat, such as the meat produced by our farm locations, is a sustainable and nutritious choice that aligns with both our health and environmental goals. By opting for these cuts, you contribute to the regeneration of our planet, support the local economy, and enjoy the many nutritional benefits that organ meat provides. Reconsider these often-overlooked cuts as a valuable addition to a healthy and conscientious diet. Embracing the benefits of regeneratively farmed organ meat is not just a step towards better health but a positive action for a more sustainable and ethical food system.
