Shipping & Pick Up

Where do you offer local pick up?

Please visit our store locator page to see the most current pick-up options.

How early in advance should I schedule my pick up?

We ask that you give us 12 hours to prepare your order, although generally we are able to prepare orders on the same day. Rush orders will be accommodated as possible, please contact our store to confirm.

Where do you ship?

We ship to all locations within the continental United States, with the exception of PO Boxes.

Ground shipping is available to geographical regions reachable within two days from our California and Florida locations. We consciously made this decision to ensure that you are receiving the highest quality products, cold packed and safe for you and your loved ones to eat.

Please use the shipping tool located on the product pages to see whether ground or expedited
shipping is available to your location.

What is your shipping schedule?

We ship orders on Mondays and Tuesdays, excluding public holidays. If you place an order after 3 p.m. on Tuesday, it will be shipped the following Monday.
While we strive to process orders promptly, please allow up to 24 hours for dispatch. For updates, including tracking information, keep an eye on our order update emails.

How do you package your meat products?

All USDA meat products are vacuum packed at the processing facility and stored in deep freezers.

We ship our products in cold-insulated boxes with dry ice packaging to ensure that our premium meats remain at a safe temperature. On arrival, we recommend either transferring the vacuum packaged meats directly to your freezer if you intend to save them for later use, or if you plan on cooking them within a few days, we recommend defrosting them in your refrigerator.

What do I do if my order arrives late?

Please contact us immediately if your order has not arrived on time. We package our meats very carefully and they are safe to consume within a three-day window from their initial shipping time.

What do I do if some of my items were defrosted upon delivery?

If your meat is still cold to the touch, we recommend placing it in the refrigerator to completely thaw before preparing. If it is partially defrosted, it is perfectly safe to refreeze.

What do I do if my package was delivered but I can’t find it.

If this occurs, please contact us immediately and we will get in touch with the shipping provider to confirm delivery and its location. On rare occasions, shipping companies may preemptively send delivery notifications just before packages arrive.

What do I do if I received my order damaged?

If your order arrives damaged, please contact us immediately. We may ask for a photo of the damaged package.

Do I need to be around the day my shipment arrives?

We recommend placing your order on a day that you will be on hand within a few hours of delivery. Our meats are cold-packaged to ensure safety, but for best results, we would recommend transferring them to your refrigerator or freezer shortly after their delivery.

Do you sell at farmers markets?

Occasionally, we participate in local farmers market events. Follow our social media accounts and subscribe to our emails for more details about upcoming farmers markets and other community events. We hope to see you there.

Can I change my order?

Please contact us as soon as possible to make alterations to an order. We will do our best to accommodate but cannot guarantee any changes to orders after they are placed. Since we are dealing with temperature-sensitive meats and proteins, we ask that you understand that we cannot change orders after they are packaged and shipped.

Regenerative Agriculture

What is pasture-raised?

We believe that our animals belong outside, in grassy habitats surrounded by their natural diets. We rotate our animals daily to give them the freshest pastures for grazing or foraging, with a positive impact on the soil and plant life.

Only our chickens are enclosed at night, in a large mobile chicken coop, which protects them from nocturnal predators. Chickens naturally roost at night, and are released at the crack of dawn to forage for seeds and insects until the close of day.

What is the difference between grass-fed vs. grass-finished?

Occasionally, some meat production companies wish to capitalize on environmentally conscious consumers and market beef or lamb that has been caged and grain-fed for the vast majority of their lives, but have a couple of days of pasture grazing before they are processed. Otherwise, some primarily grain-fed animals are also fed a small amount of hay or cut grass, so companies can claim they are grass-fed.

We believe that our grass-fed beef and lamb should be truly that—grass-fed. Our cows and sheep graze on fresh grasses daily, throughout the year, rain or shine. We occasionally place bales of sweet hay in their pastures during times when grass growth is low and they need to supplement their diets.

I buy grocery store free-range organic eggs. How are yours different?

We invite you to compare for yourself. Please feel free to do a taste and color test at home and send us the results. Our beyond-organic chickens are foraging for their natural diet of insects, worms, and seeds, outside in the sunshine, just like nature intended.

At night, they are enclosed in a mobile chicken coop during their natural dormant cycle to protect them from predators.

We see a lot of greenwashing language around free-range chicken and egg products. Sometimes this means that the chickens have some limited access to the outdoors, or that their cages are slightly larger than standard, industrial-raised chickens.

We believe that you will see and taste the difference. Our pastured chickens produce beautiful, rich orange-yellow yolks, packed with flavor and nutrients.

How does regenerative meat combat climate change?

Animal life plays an important role in biology. Removing animals entirely from farming can be extremely damaging and results in soils that are stripped of nutrients, clay-like, and fail to hold water.

Grazing our livestock on pastures for short periods of time helps promote deep root structures in the grasses, which in turn promotes healthy bacteria growth in the soil, carbon and nitrogen capture, and better water absorption. All of this, including the natural fertilizer left behind by herbivores leads to a climate positive impact.

Doesn’t eating animal fat causes heart disease, high cholesterol, and other health ailments?

Grass-fed and pastured meats have been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, and have a better mix of Omega 3 vs. Omega 6 fats.

Won’t eating less meat save the environment?

Important studies have shown that completely removing animal intervention in large scale agriculture has pushed us further toward desertification of large tracts of farmland. Nature is wild and plants cannot exist healthily without some intervention from animals and insects. Otherwise, commercial farmers have to rely on artificial fertilizers and GMO crops to mass-produce plant crops, which we believe has a negative impact on the environment.

Is grass-fed, grass-finished meat better for you than similar cuts from grain-fed livestock?

Yes, many studies have shown that grass-fed meat has a healthier mixture of Omega 3 vs. Omega 6 fatty acids and are much more nutrient-dense when raised on diverse, healthy grass pastures.

Do you give your animals antibiotics?

The health of our livestock is very important to us, and we treat them as holistically as possible. We do not currently utilize any antibiotics or hormones.

Do you use GMO feed? Specifically, do you use soy or corn?

Our animals never eat feed that is derived from soy, corn, or GMOs. Feed is a supplement to the animals’ natural diet of eating grasses and bugs on pasture. We provide our cows and sheep access to hay during leaner months, and our pigs and chickens receive some species appropriate non-GMO supplemental feed.

Is your beef 100% grass-fed?

Yes, our cattle and lamb are grass-fed and finished and raised on lush pastures. 

Are you certified organic?

Our farms are not certified organic. We utilize holistic approaches to farm management that are supportive of healthy animals, nutrient-rich soil, and biodiversity. We do not use toxic chemicals, GMO feed, or anything else that would compromise the integrity of our product. It is our belief that our farming practices create products comparable and, in some instances, superior to certified organic products.

Our Products and Our Farms

Do you sell larger quantities of beef at a reduced price per pound? (i.e. quarter, half, whole cow)

Currently, we are not selling quarter, half, or whole animals. As our production increases and we establish a consistent level of inventory, we are hoping to be able to offer larger quantities at an alternate rate. Please join our email list and follow us on social media to be notified of new developments.

Do you conduct farm tours?

We plan on offering scheduled tours in the future. Join our email list and follow us on social media to stay updated.

How old are your lambs?

We process our lambs at age 10-12 months for ideal taste and tenderness.

What is the difference between lamb and mutton?

The difference simply comes down to age. Meat from sheep after the age of three is considered mutton.

Do you breed your own livestock?

In some cases, yes. We are growing quickly, so we also purchase our animals from a select list of farms that abide by our principles.

Do you include the ingredients for your products?

Yes, our processed meats, such as our sausage products, show added ingredients on the label. Our packaged meats are simply vacuum-sealed and frozen.

I have a soy/nut/other allergy. Are your sausages safe for me to eat?

Please read the ingredient list carefully. Any potential allergens will be listed if present.

Where are your products processed?

We partner with local USDA certified processing locations to ensure our meats are butchered and packaged safely.

What are the best ways to prepare grass-fed/finished meats?

Grass-fed or pastured meats have a leaner, more muscular composition than commercially raised livestock. Our animals are outside, grazing and foraging all day, instead of standing in small cages eating processed feed in order to gain weight quickly.

Because of the lower fat content, we recommend using specific cooking methods for the best results. Slow thawing in the refrigerator, brining, treating meats with a natural tenderizer, or marinading can help soften the muscle structure before cooking. As appropriate to each cut of meat, you may consider slow cooking, or using a quick sear method to develop the delicate flavors of our meat.

We offer recipes with tips and tricks in our blog. Subscribe to our email list and follow us on social media for updates.

Where are your farms located?

Our farms are located in Rescue, California and in Crestview, Florida, near 30A.

Do you sell the same products at both locations?

We occasionally sell different products at each location, simply due to our stock and processing capabilities. Sometimes we experiment with a new product at one location before offering it at both locations.

Will you open new locations in the future?

At this time, we are focused on developing our two locations to their full potential.

Do you have a restaurant?

Not at this time.

Do you do special events?

At this time, we do not offer regular events, but please feel free to reach out to tell us about your event. We may be able to accommodate you.
