Kimber's sells grass-fed beef ...

I had no idea that Kimber's sold grass-fed beef! I bought my Thanksgiving turkey from them last year. Very cool!

does Kimber's sell their grass-fed beef in individual portions or by the half- and quarter-steer? I'm still thinking about turning our tiny extra bedroom into a pantry equipped with a large freezer!

I've been getting ground beef (frozen, but still) from Kimber's; I believe that's all they have right now and that is in limited quantities ... I never had grass-fed beef prior to what I got from them ... Wow, what a difference. Lean and delicious ... I've also got my Xmas Goose on order with them ...

Fantastic Thank you!

I should clarify my remark re: grass-fed beef at Kimber's. They provided me with beef from their personal supply and I made a donation to the farm in return. I misspoke when I said that they sold beef from their farm. Apologies for the confusion.

I picked up my first (freshly butchered) pasture-fed chickens direct from the farmer today. We've also ordered 1/2 pork, 1/4 beef, and our Thanksgiving turkey.

What fun to see his kids swimming in their new natural pool and to see the dogs he talks about on his blog!

You're going to make all of us southern Californians jealous. Oh, wait, that's right, we live in paradise otherwise, so I guess you can enjoy your pastured chickens and beef in the sweltering heat and bitter cold! Lol.

Kate said...

Does anyone know if these are "grass-finished" versus 'grass-fed"?

Also, Melanie, if Kimber's qualifies for this list would you be able to post contact info?

Thanks!

Kate - The RJ Livestock are both grass-fed and grass-finished.

Kimber's does not sell their grass-fed beef. The commenter who mentioned it received it as a "trade" between "friends," so I haven't posted their contact information here.

True Pasture Beef only sells to San Diego, we are local and all the cattle are raised in southern and central California.
