Organic Food Links

I would like to share a few places that Mic and I repeatedly buy organic foods from. I have researched these companies and would recommend their goods to my friends.

Dan White and his wife own Lazy69 Ranch located in Northern California. I have been ordering organic grass fed beef from him for about a year. Normally we pick the cuts, and he puts together a custom order about $250.00 and ships free of charge. The packages arrives frozen and perfectly sealed. 

USDA standards for grass-fed beef are always met or exceeded and his cattle are grass-fed and finished. He does not introduce low level antibiotics, growth stimulating hormones,  feed lot fillers or feed byproducts at any time.   

We only eat beef a few times a month and one order last about 6 months. If you eat beef I would highly recommend eating grass fed organic beef it is lower in satruated fats and higher in Omega 3’s.

There are a number of nutritional differences between the meat of pasture-raised and feedlot-raised animals. To begin with, meat from grass-fed cattle, sheep, and bison is lower in total fat. 

Because meat from grass-fed animals is lower in fat than meat from grain-fed animals, it is also lower in calories. (Fat has 9 calories per gram, compared with only 4 calories for protein and carbohydrates.

Meat from grass-fed animals has two to four times more omega-3 fatty acids than meat from grain- fed animals. Omega-3s are called “good fats” because they play a vital role in every cell and system in your body.

    The meat from Lazy69 Ranch is rrreeeaaaallly good. Once you taste it it’s nearly impossible to have meat from any other place.

    Nice picture under the arch, I love that one of you two.

  3. When I was very young (about 10) my Grandpa took me to visit distant relatives who had a Bison ranch in North Dakota. I lived in dairy country (now suburb country) and was used to cows, but Bison are *huge*! Supposedly good eating, too, but I don’t remember all of the details from that trip, and don’t eat mammals any more.
