Beef. It’s what’s for dinner.

Our beef is supplied by Wagon Wheel Ranch.

From the farmer:
“I grow grass fed, grass finished, hormone free, antibiotic free, Black Angus cross beef available as a whole cow delivered to the processor or as individual cuts that are vacuum packed and flash frozen. Our farm and processor is Animal Welfare Approved; we are inspected and audited yearly as members of the American Grassfed Association.
We love our cows and treat them humanely with respect and kindness. We cross purebred Santa Gertrudis cows (good mothers) with a purebred Hereford bull (gentle disposition & high yield carcass); their daughters (healthy, gentle, good mothers) are bred to a purebred Black Angus bull (tender quality meat cuts). The resulting calves are the ones we sell to you! This cross breeding system makes the cows and calves healthier and disease resistant. Our Black Angus bull was DNA tested for tenderness, ribeye size and 10 other genetic traits.
We use a sustainable pasture rotation system with natural shade and fresh water available at all times. High quality free choice hay or grass silage is fed during winter or drought conditions.”

We also have SUPER fun and informative workshops available, so don’t miss out!

The Market is open Thursday at 9am – Monday at noon.

Milk Kefir

We make milk kefir at Rancho Alegre Farm and we also have kefir grains available if you’d like to make your own! Just shoot me an e-mail for prices and availability!

Milk kefir grains are live active cultures consisting of yeast and bacteria existing in a symbiotic relationship. Adding the kefir grains to fresh milk yields a delicious probiotic drink in about 24 hours. The term “kefir grains” describes the look of the culture only, which resembles cauliflower. Kefir grains contain no actual “grains” such as wheat, rye, etc. Milk kefir can be enjoyed plain, flavored, or used in many recipes, like salad dressing, bread, and ice cream.

We also have SUPER fun and informative workshops available, so don’t miss out!

The Buzz on Bees!

Cold season is among us. Did you know we have our own bee colonies on the farm? These bees produce yummy honey and our beekeeper, Jay Parsons, turns it into delicious products available by Dances with Bees on the market and in our Country Store. Some refer to honey as “liquid gold” because of its many health benefits.

Here are a few reasons to enjoy honey in your daily life:

1. Alleviates allergies: Honey’s anti-inflammatory effects and ability to soothe coughs has led to the belief it can also reduce seasonal allergy symptoms.

2. All-Natural Energy Drink: Honey is an excellent source of all-natural energy at just 17 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon. This natural unprocessed sugar — fructose and glucose — directly enter the bloodstream and can deliver a quick boost of energy.

3. Boosts Memory: The sweet nectar is loaded in antioxidants that may help prevent cellular damage and loss within the brain.

4. Cough Suppressant: Honey can be the all-natural cure when it comes to pesky colds. A persistent cough that won’t go away can easily be remedied with two teaspoons of honey.

5. Sleep Aid: Honey can be a health aid for sleepless nights. Similar to sugar, honey can cause a rise in insulin and release serotonin — a neurotransmitter that improves mood and happiness.

6. Treats Dandruff: Honey can bring temporary relief to the scalp by targeting dandruff.

7. Treats Wounds And Burns: Honey is a natural antibiotic that can act both internally and externally. It can be used as a conventional treatment for wounds and burns by disinfecting wounds and sores from major species of bacteria.
