All of our Beef, Poultry and Pork is purchased through Texas vendors which sell high quality free-range grain and grass fed beef, poultry and pork. Our beef has no artificial flavoring, coloring ingredient, chemical preservative or any other artificial or synthetic ingredient have been added and meat is only minimally processed. For those products that are minimally processed (bacon, hams, etc.), we use only our own natural ingredients when curing or smoking.
