A Little Piece of Advice From Over the Moon

This week we had the biggest day of orders to date.  It's so easy to get sucked in the comparisons game and to feel like it's a tiny drop in the bucket.

How to Use Beef Soup Bones

There is so much meat that comes from 1500lb beef animals.  So much beyond just the T Bone Steaks (even though we know how good they are too!!) We're challenging ourselves to learn more about using all of it and hope to share that journey with our Meat CSA customers this winter & beyond.  If you've ever been part of a Vegetable CSA you can compare it to why you can't have only tomatoes all summer and that the diversity of veggies is what makes that experience so awesome and unique Our beef soup bones can be used to make the most delicious bone broth, and have enough meat on them to make a hearty soup or stew.  Making bone...
