News and blog

Welcome to the blog.
Posted 6/17/2013 12:39pm by Ralph Mitchell.

Time to place your order for CSA packs for the remainder of the summer!  Thanks to the rains, we have processed a few extra beef this month and again next month.  Consequently, we have CSA packs available for delivery starting immediately, through August.  You may order extra packs, at this time and have them delivered at different times.  The deadline for ordering is July 20

Please go to our website and order from the CSA member-only page of our online store. You may pay at order via Paypal, at pickup by cash or check or via a link on the invoice you will be sent prior to your delivery date.

CSA pickup points are the Brazos Farmer’s Market (Bryan), Tillman Physical Therapy (Cedar Park), Arboretum Brick Oven (Austin) and Live Oak UU Church (Cedar Park) and Dyer Mercantile (Georgetown), and Temple . Times and days are on the website calendar. 

Remember that all CSAs are opt-in, using the online order page (meaning if you don't order online, you will not be scheduled for a pack). The inventory on the order page has been updated the bi-monthly CSA packs and eighth-CSA packs, plus the organ meats I believe I will have available for CSA members. Please go to the page and place your order, specifying your pickup site and date.  If you do not specify which month, I will presume you want a July pickup. If you need to make special arrangements, you can make a comment in the comment box.

Below is the schedule through August.

For June CSAs, please place your order by Weds, June 19 9 AM.  All other CSA pickup dates need to ordered by July 4.

Wild Type Ranch will be delivering their premium, grass-raised Angus beef to Google's Austin offices June 10 and July 8.  If there is sufficient demand, we will make this a regular monthly stop.  We will be delivering orders placed via our online store, outside the front entrance from 10:30-10:45 both days.  

New to our beef?  There's lots of information about our ranch and our beef on our website, but here's the basics:

  • We are a family ranch, based in Cameron, Texas.  We raise Angus and Angus-Devon cross cattle.  We've been in the ranch-raised beef business for 8 years
  • Our beef spends its entire life on pasture.  No routine antiobiotics and no growth-enhancing hormones are used in our production.
  • We are not organic, but we use only organic fertilizer on our pastures and our primary method of weed control is cutting and grazing.
  • Product quality, animal welfare and environmental stewardship are the three main factors we use in determining our production methods.
  • We have been genetically selecting for tenderness and marbling since the foundation of our ranch.  Our beef is tender, well-marbled (usually Choice grade) and extremely flavorful.  No need to change your cooking methods, as in some other grass-fed beef.
  • We taste-test each beef harvested to ensure tenderness and flavor.
  • Our beef comes frozen and vacuum-sealed.  Ground beef will keep frozen for up to 6 months. Other cuts are good for 9-12 months.

Ordering beef:  Our beef is sold by individual cuts or in several different packs.  The cuts are priced by the pound, so indicate the number of each cut (not pounds) you want when you order.  Just go to our online store to place your order.  We will pack the beef and send you an invoice prior to the delivery day.  You can pay via a bank draft using the link on the invoice, to our e-mail via Paypal or with cash or check on the day of pickup.  

Please forward this e-mail to any interested friends.  Feel free to e-mail us if you have any questions.

Hope to see you at the pickup days!

Sara, Ralph, Eric and Alex.

Spring is a busy season at the ranch: We're nearly done calving, beginning our breeding season (selecting only the most eligible bulls to breed to our beloved girls) and checking growth and condition on our beef herd.  I think I've personally touched each animal on the ranch at least once in the last month!

Spring is also when we have all of our cattle ultrasounded.  We have a professional technician come out to scan each young animal that weighs over 500 pounds.  We get a visual image of how the ribeye will look and scientific measurement of the ribeye size, marbling (= Prime, Choice or Select grade) and how much backfat the animal is carrying.  We also tenderness test at this time.  Using this information, plus knowledge of disposition and pedigree, we select the heifers we will retain to join the breeding herd.  For the beef herd, the ultrasound information helps us predict the quality of the beef and how to have each beef cut for maximum customer satisfaction.  This is one of our primary ways we guarantee that our beef is the best of the best.

For the first time in several years, we have plenty of grass at the moment and everyone is glossy fat and happy.  The cattle have been gaining 2-3 pounds per day off the luscious and diverse grazing available.  Consequently, we will be to harvest an extra beef each month from now through July.  That should help with our perpetual shortages, and keep our wholesale partners at Village Foods and Dyer Mercantile happy!

April Inventory:  Much of our April beef was pre-ordered as bulk beef, but we do have some inventory available.  We have plenty of ground beef, summer sausage and hamburger patties, plus a limited amount of the following: Chili, stew, stir fry, chuck roast, rump roast, brisket, skirt steak, tenderloin, NY strip, boneless ribeye and bone-in ribeye steaks, plus one variety pack.  If you would like beef at one of our remaining April market/delivery points, please place your order via the online store.  

Temple area deliveries now available: For our Temple customers, we now offer deliveries on most Thursdays at 902 S. Main at 11:45.  

Bulk Beef: We have eighths, quarters and half-beefs available even numbered months.  You can now reserve bulk beef through the end of 2013 via the online store.  Ordering a half, quarter or eighth is a good method for saving money on beef.  Eighths are $8.50/lb of packaged beef and quarters are $8.25   Halves are $4.75/lb of hanging weight (about $7.50/lb packaged wt).

Pack Apologies:  Our apologies to anyone who tried to order a variety pack, value pack, grill pack or steak sampler after the last e-mail and found they were still not available through the pack page of the online store.  That has been corrected, and you may now order.  We will be filling pack orders through March 13th for the upcoming month's deliveries.  Orders placed after that will be filled after April 9.

Order now for best availalability:  If you want beef in the upcoming month, we recommend placing your order before the March 16th Brazos market.  After that, our inventory will likely be significantly depleted.  You can place your order now for any of the March markets or delivery points.  We were able to harvest an extra beef this month, thanks to the green grass and rain, so are well stocked.  We have packs available, as well as individual cuts, and our wonderful summer sausage.

Bulk Beef: We have eighths, quarters and a half-beefs available even numbered months,through the end of 2013.  You can now reserve bulk beef through the end of 2013 via the online store.  We still have a waiting list for our CSAs, so ordering a half, quarter or eighth is a good alternative for saving money on beef.  Eighths are $8.50/lb of packaged beef and quarters are $8.25   Halves are $4.75/lb of hanging weight (about $7.50/lb packaged wt). A $200 deposit holds your spot until your beef is harvested.   You may pay your deposit via Paypal, as well as by mail or through a bank draft link on our invoices. 

Live Oak Delivery date changed: Please note that the next delivery date to Live Oak Church in Cedar Park is now March 31, instead of April 7.

Time change for Tillman PT delivery:  Deliveries to Tillman PT will now be from 3:15-3:30 on designated Thursdays.

We'll be making our monthly appearance at the Brazos Farmer's Market this coming Saturday, Feb 16.  We have plenty of ground beef, hamburger patties, chili beef and our latest batch of summer sausage!  You can purchase onsite at the market or you can place an order online here.

Ground Beef is stocked up: If you've been wanting to order our 10-packs, but haven't been able to for a while, now is your chance! The ground beef we have in stock will have 2-3 Tbsp of drainable fat per pound when cooked; a little higher fat than our typicial.

Bulk Beef: We have eighths, quarters and a half-beefs available even numbered months, starting in April.  You can now reserve bulk beef through the end of 2013 via the online store.  We still have a considerable waiting list for our CSAs, so ordering a half, quarter or eighth is a good alternative for saving money on beef.  Eighths are $8.50/lb of packaged beef and quarters are $8.25   Halves are $4.75/lb of hanging weight (about $7.50/lb packaged wt). A $200 deposit holds your spot until your beef is harvested.   You may pay your deposit via Paypal, as well as by mail or through a bank draft link on our invoices. 

Packs will be available in March: We are unable to fill orders for packs through February, but will be able to do so again in March.  I will be refreshing the online store inventory early next week, to enable ordering for March.

The delivery and market schedule for the first half the year is below and on the calendar page of the website.

We're all set for the 2013 beef market season, and have made a few changes. Pickup point this year will be the Brazos Farmer's Market (Bryan), Crossfit Cedar Park (Cedar Park), Arboretum Brick Oven (Austin) Live Oak UU Church (Cedar Park) and Dyer Marcantile (Georgetown).  We will not be selling at the Georgetown Farmer's Markets in 2013.  Please note also that the pickup time for Tillman will now be 2:30-3:00 and for the Arboretum will be 11:15-11:30.  

The delivery and market schedule for the first half the year is below and on the calendar page of the website. 

Ground Beef is stocked up:  We have plenty of ground beef again!  If you've been wanting to order our 10-packs, but haven't been able to for a while, now is your chance! Because our beef is almost always lean, we have eliminated "extra lean" ground beef.  Should we ever get beef that exceeds our fat criteria, we will list it as such ("high fat") on our order page.

Bulk Beef: We streamlined the process for ordering an eighth, quarter or half beef.  You can now reserve bulk beef through the end of 2013 via the online store.  You may also now pay your deposit via Paypal, as well as by mail or through a bank draft link on our invoices.  We still have a considerable waiting list for our CSAs; ordering a half, quarter or eighth is a good alternative for savin money on beef.

Packs temporarily unavailable: We are unable to fill orders for packs through February, but plan to be able to do so again in March.
