How Do I Place An Order?
Just start shopping our store! *click here*. When you are ready to check out, if you haven't made an account you will be required to set up an account. Choose how you want to get your meat (FREE* local delivery on orders over $150 or Boise Cold Storage pickup) and then check out. Your card will not be charged until the day of pickup or delivery since weights of the meat are estimated until we actually pack you box.
Currently we do deliveries on Wednesday's and orders are typically delivered between 1-5pm. If you are concerned you will not be home or have questions please refer to the number on your receipt on how to get in contact with our delivery guy.
Pickups are currently at Boise Cold Storage between 12:30-1pm on Wednesday's. We ask you to be on time and not ask us to stay longer or earlier than necessary since we have a schedule we have to keep.
Packing for delivery?
At this time we do not use any special insulation for delivery. We keep all our boxes in our coolers up until we deliver it to your door. If you do not plan on being home we ask that you leave a cooler in a visible location with ice in it. Insulated packaging is extremely expensive and increases the cost our meat significantly, not to mention it's very wasteful, so please help us out by being home or allowing us access to put the meat in a safe chilled environment.
How Do I Learn More About How You Raise Your Animals?
Check out our "About Us"section that tells you all you need to know!
Is your meat grassfed?
We are do not like the terminology grassfed anymore because it has been misused. All our animals are pasture-raised, meaning they are on pasture their whole life.Our cattle and sheep are 100% grassfed and finished, meaning they eat nothing but grass their entire lives, no grains. Our pigs and chicken receive supplemental non-gmo grains but live on the pasture their entire life.
What type of feed do the chickens and pigs receive?
We have a local non-gmo source of chicken feed for our pastured chickens. It does contain corn and wheat, but it is non-gmo. The pigs receive barley and peas for their supplemental grain, which both are a non-gmo crop.
What does "all natural" mean?
“All Natural” is an abused term that confuses many buyers. It simply means that the animal has never been given any antibiotics through injection. However, this does not include eaten antibiotics, which lots of cattle receive in feedlot situations. On our ranch we do NOT give any antibiotics to our animals that end up being butchered.
Is your meat organic?
This has a two part answer. Yes and no. Yes, our practices are organic. We do NOT use pesticides on our property. No. Organic labeling is extremely expensive and cumbersome loop to jump through to have a fancy label on our beef. We cannot call our meat “organic” because the USDA technically has rights on what is labeled organic and what is not. Also, we run our cattle on federal range 9 months of the year. The BLM sprays weeds on the federal land, which in turn would not allow us to consider our beef organic. However, don’t let this worry you. Our cattle run on 100,000 acres of rangeland. The weeds that the BLM spray for are very few and our cows do not eat the sprayed weeds.
Do you use herbicides or fertilizers on your property?
Nope. We never use herbicides or synthetic fertilizers on our property.
