Dan and Joanne Tilley at Tilldale Farm raise the best grass-fed beef we've found anywhere. Their herd is certified organic Red Devon Cross Cattle. They have chosen their Red Devon Breed carefully from very old stock that has been fed on grass for hundreds of years. As a result of the cattle's diet, and slow natural growth, the animals are extremely healthy, and correspondingly so is the meat.
Beef in general gets better with aging. Tilldale Farm processes the beef at The Royal Butcher in Randolph, Vermont and allow it to dry age for at least a week before delivery to us. Depending on the timing of your delivery we may choose to freeze your beef to stop the aging process, but please be assured all the beef you receive is much fresher than anything at any supermarket. If your beef does come frozen, slowly thaw on a counter top or in the refrigerator.
Season with salt and pepper and form into burgers for the grill, or add an onion, an egg, garlic and bread crumbs for meatballs. The possibilities are endless for this kitchen staple- add to tomato sauce, lasagna, sheperd's pie, or tacos.
Keep refrigerated or frozen.
