Truly Pasture Raised Beef
How we started:
We knew we wanted grass-fed beef that was rotated frequently onto fresh green pasture.
We needed a slower growth breed that would marble well without corn or the sugars and food waste grocery store "grass fed" beef are fed on their feedlot.
We toured lots of local farms and taste tested. What we found was that raising grass-fed beef is really hard; even if a farmer is doing everything right, the end result might not make the cut.
Getting it right took time. Frankly it was an art.
We are exceptionally proud of the beef we offer at TC Farm. There are a lot of reasons that go into why our beef is better.
TC Farm Is Better
Tender Dry-Aged Beef
Not Just Tender Steak
100% of our beef is dry-aged.
In the store, beef is almost always wet-aged. This makes the meat watered down with about 10% extra water content (not such a great value).
Why this is better
We take care of our farms by regularly rotating where our animals graze.
This actually builds topsoil and can act as a carbon sink (which is great for the environment.)
Actually Grass Fed
Fed Real Grass
Grass fed means our beef is fed hay, pasture, minerals and water. That's it. Exactly what you'd expect.
You'd be surprised to learn what the industry feeds and still counts as "grass fed" (hint: it isn't grass).
Slower Growth = Flavor
Others engineer things to raise beef as fast and cheap as possible, cutting corners that continually surprise me to learn about.
We take the opposite approach. We rely on slower growth and healthier food.
Clean and Healthy
Others might routinely use antibiotics to make up for for cramped and unsanitary conditions. They may also sell 'hormone free' meat, but then secretly use other growth drugs.
Yeah. That's not for us. Not at all.
100% Grass Fed - Bulk Orders?
We sometimes get asked about bulk orders. Yes, we do offer bulk orders for our members, but we have found nearly all families prefer to pick and choose the cuts they like best.
For those looking to save a bit on their grocery bill, we offer up to a 7.5% discount on our smaller packages. This is about the same as a bulk order without the downsides of buying a quarter of a steer at once.
Regardless your preference, before ordering in bulk, be SURE to order a sampler pack from your farm of choice before filling your freezer. You can do that online with us without any commitment for a future order. That way you can taste test our beef before making a large order.
By the way, those bulk packages appear cheaper, but they also include a huge percentage of liver, oxtail and bones that are often wasted (or, not enough is included if your family enjoys those items)
The other big advantage of TC Farm is that we offer a wide variety of sausages and deli meats made with our beef. When ordering bulk, you'd be unable to get such a variety of amazing organic deli items.
As a member, you choose which of the amazing cuts your family enjoys.
