RAISED ON PASTURE,
FULL OF FLAVOR
We partner with Bexten Farms in Decatur County, IA to bring you individual cuts and ten-pound bundles of pastured beef.
Andrew Bexten, the farmer behind the meat, is Tosche Stacy's brother-in-law. The Bextens have 120 acres of pasture and timber in Decatur county, where they raise beef and pork. Their black and red Angus cattle are raised on pasture, and a portion of it is finished on corn, and the rest is grass-fed/grass-finished.
We sell their corn-finished beef, as that is the texture and flavor profile that is most familiar to a majority of our customers. All of the Bextens' cattle are rotationally grazed, which allows for better forage for the animals, and also gives the pasture the rest needed for maintaining healthier root systems.
Their hogs are all raised in open buildings and are bedded with straw to keep them dry, and they are able to freely roam in an outdoor lot.
HOW TO PURCHASE
VEGGIE BOX ADD-ON
We sell beef by the cut to our Veggie Box CSA members (click here to learn how to join), and we're in the process of getting a license to sell it frozen at the farmer's market as well! And you are always more than welcome to come out to the farm to pick up your cuts of beef.
