Crowd Pleasing {ethically raised} Party Foods for Game Day

#1 America's favorite food for the Big Game is chicken wings, by far.

They're easy to make and so, so tasty. Our pasture raised chicken wings are meaty, tender, and so flavorful, even before you add the dipping sauce!

Our friend Matt recommends cutting off the wing tips, drizzling them with oil and your favorite seasoning, then baking them at 425 degrees F for 40 minutes until crispy brown (flip halfway through cooking time). Recipe here.

#2 Another classic for the football game is buffalo chicken dip.

Cook up and shred some boneless, skinless chicken breasts or a whole chicken, then mix with cream cheese and your favorite buffalo dipping sauce for a tasty chip dipping masterpiece!

#3 What would a Sunday night football game be without pizza??

Make up your family's favorite crust (or pull a ready made one from the freezer) then top with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms, etc., and lots of pepperoni and cooked Italian sausage. Or skip the marinara and make a chicken alfredo pizza instead. Everyone will be glad they came to your house to watch the game. ;)

#4 Everyone like something different? You can't go wrong with a taco or nacho bar.

Make some easy pulled pork in the slow cooker ahead of time for some carnitas nachos, as well as, pulled chicken, and classic taco seasoned ground beef.

Assemble a DIY nacho bar starting with a bed of nacho chips with options of meats, cheese, salsa, sour cream, onions, jalapenos, peppers, olives, tomatoes, cilantro, lime and you're set!

#5 You could do something similar with chili, too, for another easy, feed a crowd, option.

#6 Keep things simple with a classic charcuterie grazing board spread.

Our ready assembled Big Party and Medium Gathering Boxes are great to bring along to a party or to put out at your own! They come with cheese, salami, relishes, crackers, and more. All you need is a board, knife, and friends to enjoy it with you.

Preventing Soil Erosion with Grass-fed Beef

Better food starts with better soil. As President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, "The nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself." He couldn't be more right. That's why we choose to manage our pastures in a way that protects, enhances, and builds soil. Because if we lose the soil, we lose our ability to grow food.

Which Ground Beef is Best for Me?

Ground beef is always a go-to-favorite for busy midweek meals. Spaghetti, tacos, burgers, sloppy joe, casserole....there are so many things you can make with a good ground beef! But which ground beef should you use? We offer 4 different varieties of ground beef with the addition of our NEW Ground Chuck/Sirloin! So what's the difference between them all? 1. Ground Beef (85% lean) - Traditional ground trim. Flavorful. Classic. Less lean, more moist.  2. Ground Round (90% lean) - Ground from the round portion of the beef. Lean and well rounded flavor.  3. Power Grind Ground Beef (10% liver/90% ground beef) - Traditional 85% lean ground beef ground into a 90/10 ratio with liver for an added nutrition boost with the same fantastic flavor!  4. Ground Chuck/Sirloin (50/50 ratio) - ​A 50/50 ratio of ground chuck and sirloin; both tender, flavorful cuts, and simply delicious! The most flavorful. All of them are perfect for your family's favorite ground beef dishes. Because the ground round is a little leaner, you may need to add some extra water or fat to it when cooking, but otherwise, they cook similarly. We wanted to see if there was any major taste difference between them, so Anastasia cooked up all 4 separately (unseasoned) and subjected us all to a blind taste test. The results were an overwhelming - "It's all delicious!", but 7/8 voted that our ground chuck/sirloin was their favorite. It was ever so slightly more tender and more flavorful than the other grinds, indicative of its higher quality. The one other vote was for our Power Grind Ground Beef. The person who preferred the power grind ground beef in the blind taste test ALSO happens to have anemia (iron deficiency) and since liver is one of the best sources of iron, it's no surprise that their body knew exactly what it needed - more iron! It was pretty cool to see the results, and it's worth noting that nobody could tell which ground beef was the Power Grind because it really does taste like ground beef...just with an extra nutritional boost to it. Take note - your body will thank you! So which ground beef do you prefer? Try our Ground Chuck/Sirloin for yourself.

How to Cook a Whole Chicken

Your whole chickens sound amazing, but I’m just not quite sure how to cook one. I’ve never done something like that before! Listen, you’re not alone. I had never cooked a whole chicken before moving to the farm, either, but it turns out to be much easier than you think!
