Bone-In Buffalo Short Ribs

Bison has a lighter, slightly sweeter taste than beef, and far less fat. The texture is different too – bison has a slightly coarser texture. Try cooking low and slow in a tasty braising liquid. 

In addition to being lower in fat, bison is also packed with iron.

 Item 26695 – 2/5 Lb Case

I dislike the thought that some animal has been made miserable to feed me. If I am going to eat meat, I want it to be from an animal that has lived a pleasant, uncrowded life outdoors, on bountiful pasture, with good water nearby and trees for shade.”

-Wendell Berry, What Are People For?

Black Hawk Ground Beef

Black Hawk Farms is a fourth generation family farm in Western Kentucky. Their cattle are traditionally born and raised on pasture and then grain-finished using white corn, rye hay and soft red winter wheat – that they grow on their farm, free of antibiotics or hormones.

They use an eco –friendly compost barn which eliminates any negative impact to the environment. The compost barn utilizes sawdust from a local saw mill combined with what would become animal waste to create a superior mulch-like organic fertilizer that is then recycled on the farm.

This Kentucky Proud product is changing the way cattle are raised East of the Mississippi and we are pleased to offer our customers a fantastic local beef option. Through this partnership we are able to eliminate about 1,000 miles of carbon footprint!
