Our go-to cut for a beef braise is always 100% grass fed chuck roast. These are cut from the shoulder, and have a great blend of fat and lean. Our partner beef farmer supplies us with both finished steers and fat cull cows, both of which have great marbling and tenderness on grass. These are perfect for a pot roast, the instapot, crock pot, or a dutch oven - low and slow! A few ideas - barbacoa, pulled beef bbq, or shredded beef.

We farm on 84 acres in Perry County, Pennsylvania, in a way that heals the land, nourishes people, and treats animals with respect. This means animals are naturally raised outdoors, on grass or in carefully managed woodlots, and fed only non-GMO grain. We don’t use hormones, antibiotics, or other chemicals to medicate livestock.
Worried you don't know how to cook? Here's the thing, the quality of your ingredients is sort of like a cheat code for cooking. Your dish is only as good as your weakest ingredient. Grab some fresh produce, a good NMP sausage, and some potatoes, rice or polenta...you got a meal!
