HI everyone who has kindly stopped by!! Sadly, after 8 wonderful years, we have decided to cease our operations, so we are no longer distributing 100% grass-fed beef. We however have a great partners who sells/ ships/ delivers grass-fed beef.

First and foremast, our partner for all the years we were in the business-Elin Parker Ganschow and SangresBest. Our 100% grass-fed beef came from Music Meadows in Westcliffe, CO. It was and still is amazing beef. If you live in Colorado, she'll work with you to get you her beef. If you live outside Colorado, contact: http://sangresbest.com.

If you live in California, recommend starting with:
1. Richards Grass Fed Beef has fantastic beef. Their 100% grass-fed beef is raised in the foothills of the Sierra here in northern California. They launched a retail grass-fed program a year ago and sell in retail outlets in the bay area. . You can find out more about their program at www.richardgrassfedbeef.com or by contacting Kyle Meniketti at: [email protected].

2. Hat Creek Grown 100% grass-fed beef: Pam and Henry Giacomini. A 4th-generation ranch, Hat Creek is owned and operated by Henry and Pam Giacomini. Part of the Lassen National Forest, Hat Creek's cows enjoy a blend of desert grasses and forest greens that fatten them up beautifully. We regularly featured their beef to our customers when we ran out of our Colorado beef. They have been shipping across the country for years and their beef is lovely. Please contact them at: www.hatcreekgrown.com.

In addition:

3. Lava Lake Lamb: our friends Brian and Kathleen Bean raise and market the best 100% grass-fed lamb in the US. They also are leaders in conservation and land management. Please support them and enjoy their amazing lamb at www.lavalakelamb.com

4. There are many many wonderful families and ranchers raising 100% grass fed beef, lamb and sustainably raised pork. The most amazing resource is Eatwild. Go to www.eatwild.com and they will pinpoint you to amazing resources.

Thank you for your continued support for 100% grass-fed products. Support ranchers, eat 100% grass fed and check back with us as we are here to advocate and tell the story!!

Dear Friends of Brandon Natural Beef:

After 8 years of delivering the finest 100% grass fed beef to your doorstep, Bob and I have made the difficult choice to close Brandon Natural Beef and cease our direct to consumer program.

Thanks to our customers'** early and continued support for 100% grass fed beef and Brandon Natural Beef, we successfully grew the marketing and distribution of direct to consumer 100% grass fed beef to the Bay area, California and customers nationwide. We introduced 100% grass-fed beef to Bay area restaurants and markets at a time when few chefs and store owners embraced the interest and concepts of 100% grass fed beef. We built a successful club program which many of you supported and helped us refine. At each step in our evolution, you gave us critical feedback and your unwavering support. We believe we made 100% grass fed beef accessible to consumers at a time when the concept was new, and sourcing was difficult. Now, grass fed beef is a well-established product and reasonably available in retail stores, often sourced from local markets, and many online merchants. During this time we strove to:

**Share with you premium humanely raised beef and lamb, fed only grass from start to finish without the use of added hormones and antibiotics

**Demonstrate the importance of respect and care for 100% grass-fed animals

**Raise the visibility of our ranching stewards and their commitment to our environment and the tradition of 100% grass-fed ranching

**Educate our community on the benefits of 100% grass fed beef

**Build a community of shared values around the joys of eating beautifully raised meats.

During these 8 years, we passionately advocated for our partners and their commitment to raising amazing 100% grass-fed beef and 100% grass fed lamb. We have nothing but sheer admiration for the dedication, knowledge and passion that each of our partners bring to the business. Their unwavering commitment to raising grass fed beef and lamb is testimony to the proud tradition of small cattle and sheep ranching. They are each stewards of the land and ambassadors of the food to table movement. Although we are ceasing our operations, we will continue to be passionate advocates for their work and their products. We particularly call out Elin Ganshow, our primary rancher, who was our inspiration and partner from our first days as Brandon Natural Beef. She is the leading provider of 100% grass-fed beef in Colorado's Wet Mountain Valley, serving across Colorado her amazing beef. She is a friend and remarkable person. The Sangres are our 2nd home; she and the valley will continue to be a significant part of our family's life. We encourage you to support Elin and our other ranching partners:

Elin Ganshow and Music Meadows Ranch, Westcliffe, CO.: www.sangresbest.com

Brian and Kathleen Bean and Lava Lake Lamb Ranch, Hailey, ID.: www.lavalakelamb.com

Pam and Henry Giacomini and Hat Creek Grown Ranch, Hat Creek, CA.: www.hatcreekgrown.com

Tom Richards and his team at Richards Grass fed Beef, Eastern Sierra Foothills, CA.: www.richardsgrassfedbeef.com

We also were blessed by our supply chain partners. Processing cattle humanely, breaking carcasses and butchering premium retail cuts, and transporting our beef required working with an expansive network of companies. We worked with amazing people including the people of Ranch Direct (Mike Callicrate), Rocky Mountain Natural Meats, G&C Packing and many others. Each of these companies are leaders in the processing and distribution of natural and 100% grass fed meats. They worked with us at every step of our process and helped us deliver a premium product. Many other small companies and individuals helped us to create labels, warehouse our product in the Bay Area (Preferred Meats), ship our product, and to develop and maintain our website (Matthew Morphy at Mormax Productions) and to develop our initial recipes (Deborah Dal Fovo/Italian Chef). To each, and many others, we owe a huge thank you.

Although we are closing this chapter with Brandon Natural Beef, we remain deeply committed to advocating for 100% grass-fed meats, the work of 100% grass-fed ranchers, and helping people understand the the importance of this sector of our agricultural heritage. We are discerning our next steps as to where we can contribute most effectively, while engaging in our current sources of employment. Our considerations include but are not limited to developing a blog, creating a podcast, partnering with existing companies to advocate and, eventually distribute again.

Of course, we will continue to purchase 100% grass fed beef and create new recipes too. We hope you will stay in touch, send us your thoughts and suggestions, and most importantly, please reach out to us with questions about anything 100% grass-fed at our new email: [email protected].

Bob and I sincerely thank you, our valued customer, for your trust, loyalty and support. The continued focus on natural locally grown foods and food home delivery validates our view that there is a market. In the end, what made the difference to us was how much fun we had serving you, getting to know you and your families, and sharing our special Brandon Natural Beef. Bless each of you.

Eat healthy and eat well with 100% grass-fed beef . We look forward to seeing you soon again.

Grass-fed and finished rises to the top.

If you like hamburger, steak or that cold glass of milk, you want to think the cow that it came from was raised on grass, right? And not that the cow was raised on some mixture of corn and soybeans in a factory. That's why grass-fed products are catching on.

Companies Step Up Efforts to Reveal More Details on Food You Eat

Grass-fed beef companies, like us, have been connecting consumers to ranchers for years. Knowing who grows, raises or catches our food raises our knowledge and confidence in the food we eat. Transparency increases trust.

Niche players to large companies are rushing to meet consumers’ increasing demand to know more about what’s in their food, where it came from, and how it was produced. Firms are using websites and special codes that showcase where the ingredients originate from.

If you have not read "Defending Beef" by Nicolette Hahn Niman, then I commend it to you as essential reading. Her comments here demonstrate her nuanced understanding of beef, how its raised and it benefits it provides us. More importantly, she calls on the carpet the tremendous mis-information that drives US policy in the country.

April 1st marks the 16th anniversary of our purchase of Lava Lake Ranch.

Thank you for helping make it all possible!

Animal Welfare at Risk in Experiments for Meat Industry

Consumers need to demand that the USDA get out of the business of re-engineering animal life. The policy is wrong and the experiments are inhumane. Animals should be raised to re-produce naturally only.

In the past 50 years, meat has gotten less fatty and easier to chew — thanks in part to the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center. But the achievement has come at a steep cost to the lab’s animals.

Why eat beef? First, our beef, raised by our amazing rancher in a one of the best ranching areas in the U.S, tastes amazing. Two, it's good for you, as, Elin, shares below.

"It’s no bull — if you want to be healthy, beef really is 'what’s for dinner.' Consider that just 3 ounces of lean steak contains 20 grams of protein, and just 6 grams of saturated fat, balanced by a healthy 7 grams of heart-friendly monounsaturated fat. In addition to being an excellent source of high-quality protein, beef is also rich in B vitamins, glutamine, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and other vital nutrients." from 'In Fitness and In Health,' by Dr. Phil Maffetone

The Wet Mountain Valley, where our rancher, Elin Ganschow, raises her cattle, has had beautiful rain this summer. Elin's cattle are grazing on succulent native grasses at her ranch, Music Meadows. They drink live water from mountain streams and roam freely. This environment will create a superior taste in her beef this fall when her cattle are harvested.

So sorry to hear you have ceased operations. I have enjoyed your products immensely. I have also enjoyed the conversations with Lisa Carey about natural grass fed beef. They were very enlightening.
