Welcome to 2017

Posted 12/31/2016 11:09am by Ralph Mitchell.

Greetings friends and customers of Wild Type Ranch!

Firstly, may we wish you all a very happy New Year, with a wish for it to bring health, fulfillment, happiness and prosperity...

2016 has definitely been an interesting year in many aspects of life worldwide. Many folk might possibly feel that 2016 wasn't a particularly good year in many regions globally, but we would like to look on the positive side of 2016 from a personal (ranch) perspective.

Here at Wild Type Ranch we are particularly thankful for the 54 inches total rainfall that has been wonderfully spread out across this past year. We have been blessed to have this vital life support delivered in a timely manner by Mother Nature, helping us to maintain lovely green pastures that our herd totally relies upon for sustenance. That has let us continue to bring top quality grass-fed natural beef from our pasture to your plate. It has been a privilege to do so, and we thank you for your support. It is very much appreciated.

Cow-share (CSA) customers, now is a good time to check what you have in your freezer and order your new pack from our CSA webpage. The delivery days for January are noted below.

Also for CSA members, we have a limited number of truly  free-range eggs. We had to start our flock from scratch again with newly hatched chicks earlier this year. The (now) mature chickens range freely over a couple of acres, doing what comes naturally to chickens. The eggs are very tasty, with a bright orange yolk. They will cost you $4.00 per dozen and are only available to Cow Share members who order their monthly CSA bag of beef.

Sadly, our WTR Cow Share openings are all filled, so eggs are for existing members who place a CSA order just now.

For other customers, we have some packs of beef available. You won't be disappointed with any of these for taste and value. See: Grill packs, Value Packs and Variety packs 

Many folk are becoming aware of the wonderful health benefits of bone broth. Our marrow bones and soup bones sell out almost immediately. So now you can buy bulk beef bones through our website. See: Grass-fed beef bones.

bones

The bones are stripped of most of the meat and include knuckles and joints, all of which are perfect for making a delicious and nutritious bone broth. The bags vary a little in weight, and we will commit to making sure that you get at least 4 pounds of bones. The price is $10 per bag/portion. Supplies are limited.

Wild Type Ranch will be doing deliveries only at the Brazos Valley Farmer's Market at (500 Nth Main) Downtown Bryan on Saturday, December 17th from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM. 

BCS Retail Outlets: We have two retail outlets that you can choose from in Bryan. Car parking is ample and easy at both outlets.

Village Foods and Pharmacy is at the corner of E 29th and Broadmoor, right next to St Joseph's hospital. Their freezers have a selection of our beef products.

Brazos Natural Foods at 4303 S Texas Ave, Bryan have stocked some selected inventory in the freezers there as well.

For Georgetown and Round Rock customers,The Mercantile at Dyer Dairy 7801 E. Hwy 29, Georgetown has a freezer stocked with our products. The delivery date at Dyer Mercantile this month is Thursday, January 12th, between 1:00 PM and 1:20 PM..

SPECIALTY ITEMS!  Based on customer demand, we have a variety of specialty items available through the value and specialty cut page of our online store.
 
Bacon:  We are offering naturally cured, smoked pork bacon.  The same local meat processor that makes our jerky and summer sausage uses a similar (no nitrate, no MSG) vegetable curing process to make bacon.  The pork used to make the bacon is sourced by the processor and not raised by us. The pigs are conventionally raised. $7.50 per package (approx. 1 lb).
 
Our beef jerky makes a great, healthy and locally produced snack.  Because it is smoked, dried and naturally cured (similar process to our summer sausage), it can be safely stored at room temperature for up to a week.  We recommend refrigeration if it will not be consumed within a few days.

We have grass-fed beef pan sausage available. Also called breakfast sausage, this fresh tasting sausage has a nice bite to it, no nitrites or MSG, and is available in 1 pound packs. Perfect for breakfast, lasagna or put it on your pizza.

Summer sausage is available once again. This little beauty is great to have in the freezer, ready for company or simply a snack. It is from our grass-fed beef and produced naturally with no nitrites or MSG. Very tasty!

Halves, quarters and eighths: We are able to offer bulk beef in odd-numbered months. You may reserve a half, quarter or eighth beef in the online store, up through the next 12 months. A $250 deposit is required to hold your spot. This is a great way to get quality natural grass-fed beef at the lowest price available from us.

Check out the Calendar page of the website for the most up-to-date schedule of markets and deliveries. 

Thanks for supporting us, and preferring sustainable, naturally produced, healthy, local food!
