The meat should arrive frozen, partially frozen with ice still visible, or at least refrigerator cold—below 40 °F as measured with a food thermometer.  

In the event of a carrier delay which results in the order being delivered later or there is damage to the shipping box that results in your meat arriving at an unsafe temperature or you feel your order is compromised or unsafe in any way—notify us immediately by emailing [email protected].

The temperature range in which food-borne bacteria can grow is known as the danger zone. Food safety agencies, such as the United States’ Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), define the danger zone as roughly 40 to 140 °F. Do not consume or taste suspect meat or meat that is in the danger zone. For more information click here.

Each order contains dry ice.  The bag that contains the dry ice is clearly labeled with large blue lettering.  In the event that the order is roughly handled and shifting occurs, it is possible for the dry ice to shift and some may fall out of the bag.
Dry Ice temperature is extremely cold at -109.3°F or -78.5°C.   You should always handle dry ice with care and wear protective cloth or leather gloves whenever touching it (an oven mitt or towel will work). If touched briefly it is harmless, but prolonged contact with the skin can freeze cells and cause injury similar to a burn.


Safe handling tips:

  • Dispose of unneeded dry ice by letting the unused portion sublimate in a well-ventilated area. Please be sure that you do not leave this in a public area or area where it can be accessed by children or pets.
  • You should never dispose of dry ice in a sink, toilet or other device. This can destroy the structure because of the temperature difference.
  • Do not place dry ice on a tiled or solid surface counter top as the extreme cold will cause damage.
  • Do not dispose of dry ice in the trash or garbage.

Perishable foods should never be thawed on the counter and must not be left at room temperature for more than two hours.

Refrigerator Thawing

  • Place the item you wish to thaw on a plate with a lip or bowl on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator to ensure that any drippings aren’t spilled onto shelving or food below. 
  • A pound of ground meat or boneless chicken breasts can require a full day to thaw in the refrigerator.
  • After thawing in the refrigerator, items such as ground meat, stew meat, and poultry should remain safe and good quality for an additional day or two before cooking.  Red meat cuts (such as beef, pork and steaks) should remain safe and good quality 3 to 5 days.
  • Food thawed in the refrigerator can be refrozen without cooking, although there may be some loss of quality.

Cold Water Thawing

  • If you forget to thaw your meat for dinner, this method is faster than refrigerator thawing but requires more attention.
  • Thawing in cold water, 40 degrees or below, is safe and faster than refrigerator thawing.
  • The bag should be submerged in cold tap water, changing the water every 30 minutes so it continues to thaw.
  • Small packages of meat, poultry or seafood (about a pound) may thaw in 1 hour or less.
  • A 3 to 4 pound package may take 2 to 3 hours.
  • For whole turkeys, estimate about 30 minutes per pound.
  • Once thawed food must be cooked immediately and should not be left out.
  • Foods thawed by the cold water method should be cooked before refreezing.

Microwave Thawing

  • Not recommended

 

You already know the health and environmental benefits of pasture raised meats, but we also believe that grass fed beef tastes better!  Because our beef comes from cattle that eat a natural diet of grass (not grain), our meat is leaner – and beefier – than it’s conventional cousin.  Cooking with grass fed requires slightly more care and attention to prevent against tough, dry, or overcooked beef.  Not to hear, we’ve got a few tips to get you cooking with confidence:

Grass fed cooks quicker.  Some sources report that grass fed beef cooks 30% faster than conventional.  Grass fed ground beef can cook in a matter of seconds and steaks require less time on the grill.  Watch your cuts as they cook and use a thermometer to check for doneness sooner than you would with conventional.

Low and Slow, High and Dry.  For roasted or sauteed beef, lower your stove flame a notch or bring the oven temp down a few degress (50 degrees F) when using recipes that use conventional beef to prevent your meat from drying out.

Lock it in.  When grilling or roasting, sear over high heat first to brown the outsides, locking in moisture and flavor before turning down the heat or cooking in the oven.

Cook from room temperature.  Always remove your meat from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature before cooking.  Never microwave your cuts.  For quick thawing, run the sealed package under water for a few minutes.

Always pre-heat.  Make sure your cooking equipment and surface (pan, grill, or oven) is all the way hot before adding your beef.

Ramp up the flavor.  Use additional oils, flavorful cooking liquids, and homemade marinades to add moisture, flavor, and seal in the juices.  Giving your steak a good dry rub will help to tenderize.  Adding a light coat of olive oil before grilling is a great way to get a nice brown sear and prevent the meat from drying.

Don’t touch that.  For an super juicy steak, don’t poke your meat while its cooking!  Use tongs, rather than a fork or knife, to flip your steak.  Puncturing the skin allows moisture to escape.

Medium rare is where it’s at.  Grass fed beef can become tough and dry when over cooked.  For optimal juiciness, flavor, and tenderness, medium-rare (or medium) is your best bet.  Aim for an internal temperature of 125-130 degrees F.

Let it rest.  When cooking with grass fed, remove your beef from the heat source before it reaches the desired level of doneness.  While the meat is resting, the internal temperate will rise another 5-10 degrees, and the juices will re-integrate.
