Greetings from Down Under...

Posted 10/2/2017 5:15am by Ralph Mitchell.

Hello to all our Wild Type Ranch customers...

Ralph is currently in Australia, or Tasmania to be more exact, but will be back in Texas for beef deliveries on the 25th, 26th, and 31st of October. See below for details.

We have had to take some difficult business decisions over the past few months, and have attempted to tailor our beef retail effort into something that is as streamlined as is possible, due to the bulk of the work being carried out by Ralph. He carries the uncomfortable legacy of a serious accident five years ago that severely damaged his spine and rib-cage. Recent scans indicate that it is not going to get better as he ages, so we can't have anything particularly labor intensive in our operation, hence the move from CSA packs to eighths, quarters and halves.

For those customers who don't have freezer space for an eighth, or just want to try the beef before ordering an eighth pack, we have put together a Sampler Pack. This is around 18 pounds of beef with a wide variety of cuts. Its cost is $175, which is around $9.72 per pound.

Currently, we have ample supplies, with Eighth-packs, quarters, some ten-packs of ground beef, we have three Value packs left, and a few other individual items available with a beef order. There is a beef half available for November. The next one after that will be in March next year, as the January half has been spoken for.

We also have some standing rib roasts available for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but they are not available on the website. Please email here if you want one and we will get back to you with the options. Two are larger, (around 7 pounds), two are smaller (around 4.5 pounds). they are $17.50 per pound.

We have 'bags of bones' for broth, farm-fresh free-range yard eggs and a few other items such as summer sausage and liver, but these will only be available to those who make a beef order, as we can't run a delivery vehicle from the ranch for small orders. When you place your order, you'll see an "Extras" box there on the eighths/quarters/halves page to choose from.

See below for this month's delivery options.

Thanks so much for your support!
