Enjoy delicious meat and seafood raised under the highest standards using no unnecessary antibiotics.
We believe animals should develop at their own pace — 100% free of artificial growth hormones — the way nature intended.
We personally know each producer we work with and ensure you get meals full of mouth-watering flavor.
Animal welfare is of utmost importance to us, and we only work with farms and producers that provide humane and clean living environments for their livestock. Better living conditions (more space to roam, access to clean water and shelter, etc.) mean animals are naturally healthier — so antibiotics simply aren't necessary. In the rare cases where an animal gets sick or requires medical attention, antibiotics are only used therapeutically — never to promote growth or to "proactively" prevent diseases.
We believe animals should develop at their own pace — 100% free of artificial growth hormones. In other markets, animals are not typically provided enough space to build up their muscle, so hormones are given to promote growth. In contrast, our farms take the extra time, care, and effort to allow their animals to grow the way nature intended, gaining weight naturally. This translates to not only the safety and health of the animals, but also the premium quality of our products.
We have strong relationships with each producer we work with and have done our homework to ensure they meet our high standards. We only supply meat and seafood that we'd put on our own tables — a product that's delicious and raised ethically, cleanly, and sustainably — always taste-tested by experts and better than anything you can find in your grocery store.
Jesie and Matthew Lawrence built their farm and family simultaneously. A desire to gain food transparency for their loved ones, and the community at large, inspired the couple to start Marble Creek Farmstead. An hour’s drive from Birmingham, the Sylacauga, Alabama farmstead, has a full range of products. In addition to growing fruits and vegetables, the farmstead is also home to chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, goats, sheep, and grass-fed cattle.
The Lawrence’s focus on hogs rests primarily with Berkshire and Tamworth breeds. The Berkshire has been called the "Kobe of Pork," for its marbling, tenderness and rich flavor. The Tamworth is known as the "Bacon Pig" for the ability to grow mass without having too much fat. Marble Creek Farmstead is also home to Large Black and Red Wattle hog breeds. With room to roam in pastures of clover, rye, bluegrass, buttercups, and flowers, the hogs instinctually root around, eating grasses, dirt, and grubs. The pigs also have access to spent brewer’s grain, fermented grains of wheat, barley and sorghum from nearby brewers, as well as a supplemental non-GMO feed.
Zach Miller grew up on his grandfather’s farm in Charlottesville, Virginia when it was still a “gentleman’s farm” for racehorses. But Zach and his parents wanted to take the family legacy in a new direction. Zach wanted to see the farm—his childhood home—preserved as a profitable model of an alternative to industrial agriculture. That meant great-tasting steaks, healthy grasses, and a land stewardship that could continue long into the future.
Craig Thompson is a fourth-generation California farmer whose parents still grow rice in Richvale. But in 2011, he and his wife Jenny -- both in their late 20s at the time -- decided to start a new branch of the family farming tradition. They bought a small parcel of 100 acres in mountainous Siskiyou County, and founded Rockside Ranch: a mission-oriented, nonprofit livestock farm that teaches youth in crisis job skills through farming apprenticeships.
After 12 years working in restaurant kitchens as a chef, Jeremy Storey found himself in Chicago, working the front of the house at Alinea, a Michelin-starred restaurant known as the foremost home in North America for the rarified cuisine known as molecular gastronomy. From his vantage point in the dining room, Jeremy watched purveyors -- farmers, fishermen, and hunters -- walk through the doors in the morning, fresh off the fields, boat, or woods, holding boxes of their finest findings for the chefs’ perusal. Though he’d landed arguably one of the better jobs in the country as far as the restaurant world goes, Jeremy couldn’t help but envy those producers.
