The grass-fed beef from Missing Jack Ranch has been wonderful! The steaks have a rich, savory flavor and are extremely tender. All of the meat smells and looks like the beef I remember eating as a child. About ten years ago we quit eating beef and chicken from the regular grocery stores. Since then I have been buying grass fed and other high end meat products at our local specialty grocer, New Frontiers. The beef we received this year from the Missing Jack Ranch has been more flavorful, juicy and overall better tasting than what I was purchasing previously. In addition to the wonderful quality, the price of the 1/4 beef was an excellent value. We are fortunate to be able to buy locally produced, grass-fed beef that were well cared for during their life. THANKS!
