News and blog

Welcome to the blog.
Posted 9/8/2014 3:41pm by Ralph Mitchell.

The two most common questions we get asked about our beef are "How do your beef prices compare to the grocery store" and "is your beef _____ (organic, grass-fed, natural, etc.)".  It's hard to answer those questions without an explanation of all the different words you might see on a beef label or meat case at the store.  Here's a short list, and some price comparisons.

  • Natural--legally means nothing is added to the meat after it is harvested.  HEB (and others) have optionally added the requirements to their natural label that the animals have not been administered growth hormones or antibiotics.  OUR BEEF IS NATURAL i.e. no added ingredients, no feed-through antibiotics and no growth hormones.
  • Organic--a strict USDA regulated term meaning dictating the among other things that cattle must be fed only organic feed, treated with only organic health products, etc.  Organic beef can (and most often is) finished in a feedlot.  While we use only natural fertilizers and mechanical (no chemical weed control), we do use traditional vet treatment when needed. OUR BEEF IS NOT ORGANIC, but has never been implanted with hormones, fed antibiotics and has been finished on non-chemically treated pasture.
  • Grass-fed--another USDA-regulated term.  Grass-fed beef is raised completely on grass or approved non-grain feeds.  Grassfed beef can never be confined in a feedlot.  Much of the grass-fed beef in stores (and chains like Chipotle and Elevation) is from Australia, which is currently cheaper than US sources for grass-fed.  OUR BEEF IS GRASS-RAISED AND FINISHED but not "grass-fed".  The primary difference is because some of our cattle are born and raised until weaning on pastures at the ranches of a handful of other Angus breeders.  These calves have been on pasture all their life , but we cannot guarantee that they have never had any grain.  Once cattle arrive on our property, they are fed only grass and hay.
  • Dry-aged and Aged--"Aging" refers to the time that from slaughter until cutting for sale or freezing.  Most "aged beef" available in the grocery store is "wet-aged", meaning a large hunk (like the whole rib section) is sealed in a vacuum bag and shipped unfrozen to the grocery store for cutting.  "Dry-aging" is a much more expensive and rarer procedure,  In dry aging the whole carcass, or in some cases small segments, are aged in a temperature-controlled environment, exposed to some air flow.  Dry aging produces a more intense flavor and is believed to increase tenderness more than wet-aging.  OUR BEEF IS DRY-AGED 14-21 days.
  • "Choice" and "Prime"--are USDA grades indicating the amount of marbling in the beef.  Marbling is the small flecks of fat within the muscle (especially in the loin and rib muscles) that improve juiciness and flavor of beef.  Only USDA-graded beef can be labelled Choice or Prime.  Our beef is state inspected, not US inspected, so is not graded.  However, we breed for marbling and tenderness.  Most of our cattle have had an ultrasound reading indicating they would grade Choice, and occasionally Prime.  (by the way, grading choice is rare for grass-fed beef, but something that has been a goal for our program from the beginning)
  • "Angus"--means that the animal's hide was at least 50% black and there was minimal hump (indicating Brahman breeding).  This is no guarantee that the animal has any actual angus genetics.  OUR BEEF IS FROM VERIFIABLE ANGUS genetics because we know the breeding of each animal.

So, how do we compare price-wise with the grocery store?  There is no direct answer, because Wild Type Ranch beef is Pastured, Natural, Dry-Aged, Grass-raised, Choice equivalent and LOCAL Angus beef.  In addition, it has been tested and selected for tenderness and taste-tested before we sell any steaks from each animal.  Still, here are some comparisons to meat-case beef from a local HEB this week, with the similarities and differences to our beef listed:

  • Dry-aged ribeye (feedlot, Choice, dry-aged, NOT natural, grass, Angus or local): $31.97/lb (ours $19.99/lb)
  • Organic 90/10 ground beef (feedlot natural, NOT Angus, grass, local, dry-aged): $7.97/lb (ours $7.50/lb)
  • HEB Prime ribeye (feedlot Prime, wet-aged NOT dry-aged, natural, grass, Angus or local) $17.97/lb (ours $19.99/lb)
  • HEB Natural (feedlot natural, Choice, wet-aged NOT dry-aged, grass, Angus or local)
    • Ribeye $14.99/b (ours $19.99/lb)
    • Stew beef $6.28/lb (ours $7.90/lb)
  • Grass-fed (Australian, grass, natural NOT dry-aged, choice, Angus or local):
    • New York Strip $11.97/lb (ours $16.25)
    • Ground beef $6.97/lb (ours ($7.50/lb)
    • Stew beef $7.97/lb (ours $7.90/lb)

BEEF JERKY IS HERE:  Our trial batch of beef jerky is in stock and available through our online store, at the Bryan Farmer's Market or stocked at Dyer Dairy Mercantile in Georgetown.  The jerky is made from our own beef and uses an all-vegetable cure containing no MSG and nitrates only from celery juice and sea salt.  The jerky sells for $9.25 for each 3-3.5 ounce package.

Brazos Market this Saturday:  After missing August, we're looking forward to seeing our favorite Farmer's Market customers this coming Saturday at the Brazos Market.  We are well-stocked for on-site purchases, or you can place an order via the online store.  Sara (chief beef-packer and bookkeeper) is out of town this week, so orders will be packed and ready for Saturday, even if you don't get an invoice.

TYPOS!  There were a couple typos in dates in our last email.  The correct schedule for September and October is below.  Any changes are in bold.

Last call for CSA packs for September delivery!  October inventory is also available to be reserved at this time.  Please use the CSA member order page to place your order.  We will be including a pack of our brand-new beef jerky in the September packs!  We're anxious to hear your feedback on this trial batch.

There are two eighth beef CSAs available for September delivery, at $7.66/lb.  These are large packs, weighing about 55 pounds.  Any CSA member may order them, but they must ordered by Weds, Sept 3.  After that I will make them available for bulk beef purchase by the general public.

Just when I thought I had life figured out...  A major shake-up in our family's schedule means that the remaining August delivery dates and our September schedule have changed.  The good news is that we will now be able to make August deliveries to Round Rock and Temple next week!  Unfortunately, we will not be able to make a Brazos Farmer's Market this month.  If you have exiting orders for delivery this month, I will be coordinating with each of you for adjusting your pickup/delivery.  Please see the online calendar, or the schedule at the bottom of this e-mail for details on the new schedule.  

Ground Beef Lean:Fat Ratio:  One of the most common questions we get is "what is the fat content of your ground beef?"  When you purchase ground beef from the grocery store, it is a measured mixture of lean trimmings and fat trimmings, formulated to arrive at a set percentage of fat.  Our ground beef is made from whole cuts (such as bottom round, short ribs, arm) as well as trimmings, with no added fat.  Typically, that results in ground beef that is around 90% lean.  

We have been blessed with good rain and abundant grass this year.  Our cattle are bred to "finish" (i.e. gain well and put down fat and marbling) on grass only.  In an unusually good year, that can mean they put down a lot of fat.  As some of you have noticed, our ground beef has been fatter than typical.  That fat is good fat; shown to be healthy. As we transition in to fall, you can expect the lean percentage to increase.  By Oct-Nov, we should be back to our usual 85-90% lean. 

Going fast--Baby Beef:  The next step up from veal, "baby beef" are cattle that are harvested at about 1 year of age.  Lower in fat, high in tenderness and with a more delicate flavor than our regular beef.  Steaks and roasts will be smaller than our regular beef.  Many grass-fed beef producers sell only beef from cattle at this age.  We are giving it a trial run and it is in stock now. There is still some remaining inventory, but it won't last long.  You can order through a special department in our online store. Don't miss out!

BUY IN BULK AND SAVE:  Don't forget, you can order halves, quarters and eighths in even-numbered months, saving up to 25% over retail prices. The deadline for quarters and eighths for October delivery is Sep 19.  Halves can be reserved for October or December by submitting an order and deposit.  October half deadline is September 6  Bulk beef can be reserved via our online store.

We've got something really special in stock:  The next step up from veal, "baby beef" are cattle that are harvested at about 1 year of age.  Lower in fat, high in tenderness and with a more delicate flavor than our regular beef.  Steaks and roasts will be smaller than our regular beef.  Many grass-fed beef producers sell only beef from cattle at this age.  We are giving it a trial run and it is in stock now.  You can order through a special department in our online store. Don't miss out!

Looking for an easy summer dinner for a crowd?  Slow-cook a brisket or two (I do mine overnight at 225-250 degrees in the oven).  With a good rub and just a few times turning it over, you've got a main course hit on your hands.  For picnics, don't forget our all-vegetable cure (no MSG, nitrate from celery powder) summer sausage too!

BUY IN BULK AND SAVE:  Don't forget, you can order halves, quarters and eighths in even-numbered months, saving up to 25% over retail prices. The deadline for quarters and eighths for August delivery is August 1.  Halves can be reserved for October or December by submitting an order and deposit.  Bulk beef can be reserved via our online store.

We're a little behind schedule on packing beef, so if you wanted an eighth beef CSA for July and have not ordered one, you may do so today.  CSAs will be packed tomorrow.

This month, we will be going light on the roasts for the 1/8th beef packs (bi-monthlies will still get either a roast or brisket), and we've mixed in some K-bobs, more patties and stir fry to reflect summer cooking patterns.  July packs should be ordered by Friday, July 4 to ensure fulfillment, although any extras will remain in inventory.  Please order through the CSA member only order page, to make sure your order gets processed.   

BRAZOS CUSTOMERS:  Please note we've had to move our Brazos market date up to July 5 to accommodate the family's summer activity schedule.  If you would like a pack in July, but cannot make it to the July 5 market, I can arrange to meet you at Village foods on Tuesday, July 15 about 5:30.  Just let me know via a note in the comment section of your order.

OTHER DATE CHANGES FOR JULY:  Live Oak deliveries will now be on July 20.  Round Rock deliveries will be from 1:30-1:45 on July 15 (rather than the usual 1:15-1:30).  Note there will be no Temple or Round Rock deliveries in August

Summer is in full swing here at the ranch.  We are happily unable to keep up with the grass growth, due to the frequent rains and the cattle are fat and glossy.  

This month,we've got plenty of  K-bobs, 1/3 lb patties, flank or skirt for fajitas and stir fry to reflect summer cooking preferences.  In addition, we've got our popular ribeye cutlets and T-bone steaks in stock.  And summer sausage is back in stock, too!

BRISKET SALE:  Our July special is $2.00/lb off brisket.  Perfect for that summer barbecue!  Special price is available for all orders placed and delivered in July.

GRAB BAG SAMPLER PACKS:  Our e-mail list special at the Brazos market was so popular, we've decided to make a limited number of packs available for order.  These packs will contain one steak, one roast, one variety cut (stew, stir fry, cutlet, etc.) and two pounds of ground beef.  The packs will sell for $55 and have a retail value of $68-75 (save 20-25%).  Limit one pack per customer, and must be a member or sign up for our e-mail list.  

BRAZOS CUSTOMERS:  Please note we've had to move our Brazos market date up to July 5 to accommodate the family's summer activity schedule.   

OTHER DATE CHANGES FOR JULY:  Live Oak deliveries will now be on July 20.  Round Rock deliveries will be from 1:30-1:45 on July 15 (rather than the usual 1:15-1:30).  Note there will be no Temple or Round Rock deliveries in August

BUY IN BULK AND SAVE:  Don't forget, you can order halves, quarters and eighths in even-numbered months, saving up to 25% over retail prices. The deadline for quarters and eighths for August delivery is August 1.  Halves can be reserved for August by submitting an order and deposit by July 16.  Bulk beef can be reserved via our online store.

Special Brazos Market June 21:Brazos customers should plan to be at the June 21 market for a special market-to-menu event.  There will be cooking demos (and samples) with our beef as one of the featured ingredients, special informational booths and more!  There are always lots of vendors at this event, and now is a good time for produce, before the real heat of summer hit.

E-mail member pack special:  As an added feature at the Brazos Market, we will have special "e-mail list member" sampler packs for new and existing members of our e-mail list.  These packs will contain one steak, one roast, one variety cut (stew, stir fry, cutlet, etc.) and two pounds of ground beef.  The packs will sell for $55 and have a retail value of $68-75 (save 20-25%).  Limit one pack per customer, and must be a member or sign up for our e-mail list.  

CHUCK ROAST MEGA-SALE: We are overstocked on chuck roasts!  They are on sale through the month of June for $5.35 per pound--a full $2.00 per pound savings.  Although summer isn't a typical roast season, a crock-pot roast can be a good alternative to heating the oven up.  Or cook them down for shredded beef barbecue!

LAST CALL FOR TEMPLE ORDERS FOR JUNE:  Tomorrow is our monthly Thursday delivery to Temple.  Order deadline is 6 pm tonight via our online store.

Below is the upcoming market and delivery schedule. Please place your order via the online store, as orders emailed directly often get lost.  Especially with the warmer weather, please be sure to make your pickup point, or notify us of the need to change.  Although we'll do our best to keep your product frozen, sometimes it is many hours after the scheduled delivery before we get back to the ranch.  We are not responsible for thawing of orders that are not picked up as scheduled.

June is our "off" month for CSAs, meaning the bulk of our harvest is set aside for other orders.  However, there are a limited number of packs available.  June packs must be ordered by Friday, June 6 at 3 pm.  Please order through the CSA member only order page, to make sure your order gets processed.   We will not be packing any extra CSAs this month, so once the deadline is passed, you will need to wait until July.

The heart and tongue in inventory are available for June.  The inventory will be updated for July once the June deadline has passed.
