Naturally Raised Meats

DennisKindergartnersFor food safety, it’s a good idea to know and trust your food sources. Purchasing meats from the people who raised the animals is a great way to expand your knowledge about what you are eating.

The meats sold at the market by local ranchers are antibiotic and hormone free. When animals are raised and pastured naturally, as opposed to large factory operations, they are not as susceptible to disease, which eliminates the need to feed them antibiotics as a standard operating procedure. Check out our ranchers’ supply of beef, goat, lamb, yak, pork, chicken, soup bones, and wild caught salmon.

San Ysidro Farm has a large selection of grass-fed and grass-finished lamb and beef in many different cuts. Their pork is from pigs raised on alfalfa hay, supplemented with non GMO grain, and their chickens are pasture raised. Try the popular miner’s pasties made from their own meats, available warm or frozen to-go.

Sky Island Brand’s Churro sheep and Criollo cattle are heritage breeds, adapted to the Southwest and making less impact on the land. There is no grain feeding, just native feeds, and a stress free lifestyle that makes a better quality of meat. Goat meat is back in stock, as well as wild-caught Salmon from their fisherman friends in Alaska.

Order a holiday turkey, pasture raised and supplemented with non GMO feed, from Cluck-Cluck Farms at the booth of Simmons Honey Ranchito this Thursday.

Emu Enterprises & Yarlung Cattle Company has ground yak and yak meat cuts including: Ribeye, Sirloin, Porterhouse, and T-bone steaks, as well as chuck roasts, stew meat, and soup bones. While visiting Emu Enterprises’ booth, sample their line of skin-rejuvenating and health-promoting emu oil products. Known for its excellent moisturizing, healing, and penetrating properties, emu oil has been used by the Aborigines for thousands of years for the treatment of muscle aches, inflammation, swelling, and sore joints.
