News and blog

Welcome to the blog.
Posted 12/25/2010 10:44am by Ralph Mitchell.

Merry Christmas from Wild Type Ranch!  The following is an excerpt from a KidsTalk, parenting newsletter I receive weekly. 

This week we celebrate the birth of a man from Galilee. In our celebration let us remember that we all are born as children of God with enormous potential that even a simple, uneducated person, such as a shepherd, can comprehend.

In our merrymaking, let us remember that each of us has possibilities that should be encouraged by those in our world who are in positions of wisdom, wealth and influence. Those of us who hold these positions of power should seek to share our gifts and offer them to our children, as the Wise Men did.

We need to be prepared to protect our children from the treachery and greed of those who would be the King Herods in our world.

Using Mary and Joseph as our models, we need to trust our children to follow their paths and believe in our children's and our own unique abilities to heal the world.

Every person on our planet is born a child. No matter what our beliefs in terms of religion, nationality or faith, the message of the child called Jesus speaks to us all, if only we will listen. The message is simple.

Jesus said that the two most important acts we can perform in the world are these:
• Love the Lord thy God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
 
• Love your neighbor as yourself.   
A message simple enough for a child to understand.

As I sit in our warm cabin on the ranch, and getting ready to prepare good food, I am appreciative of the gifts of being well-loved, well-fed and able to make my living from something that is totally in line with my values and my beliefs.  My Christmas wish for you all is that you may have the same.

Sara, Ralph, Eric and Alex.

With 25 degrees this morning, the winter season is definitely upon us.  So much for the last-of-the-season green beans from the garden!

This time of year is a time of reflection for me.  Being in the business of producing food, Thanksgiving and the other holiday feasts always have special significance.  One of the most special parts of our business is supplying beef for the celebrations of our customers.  I feel deeply our connection with the community when someone is buying a special roast for their father's birthday, or buys a beef pack for their son at college.  

The connection to our customers brings a sense of sacred to our daily chores.  My youngest son always swears he can taste the love in food that is home-grown and home-made.  As we take care of our animals and our land, participate in the breeding, raising and harvesting of our beef, I am ever more aware of the reason for this season.  

BRAZOS MARKET THIS SATURDAY AND NEXT
:  We'll be back at the Brazos market this weekend AND next weekend.  We're fully restocked with all cuts.  Be sure to come out and stock up, as we will not be at the market the last 2 weeks of December.

2ND MONDAY AUSTIN CEDAR PARK DELIVERIES DEC 13: Riata, Arboretum and Tillman PT deliveries will be Monday, Dec 13.  Please have orders placed by Dec 12.

LAST CALL FOR CAPTAIN'S PACKS
:  We have a couple Captain's Packs still available.  Our Captain's Cut beef is prime or near-prime grade and exceptionally tender and tasty. A Captain's Pack is 20 pounds of steaks and choice cuts (typically 8 steaks, a roast, stir fry beef, patties and a few pkgs of ground beef) for $250.  Please see our website (Captain's Cut )for more details.

GIVE A TASTY GIFT THIS YEAR:  Why not give someone you love a gift certificate from Wild Type Ranch?  We can do certificates for a flat dollar amount, for one of our packs or for a 3 or 6 month CSA subscription.  Certificates are available at the market, or can be mailed to the recipient of choice.

Posted 11/5/2010 3:30pm by Sara.

It's been a busy week here at Wild Type Ranch.  Last weekend, I took a rare weekend off markets to take my horse to a Natural Horsemanship clinic at Trail's End Equestrian Center in Cedar Park.  This week, I've been holding down the fort on my own while Ralph was spending time with his boys and our grandson back in Australia.  Nothing like having to pick up your partner's slack to make you appreciate just exactly how wonderful they are!

In the quiet spaces between ranching and parenting this week, I've been thinking a lot about balance.  In this period of my life, balance seems to be a dominant theme.  I've made a commitment to include horsemanship as a regular part of my life to help keep me balanced; physically, emotionally and spiritually.  The lessons I learn with my horses make me a better mother, spouse and steward of the animals in our care.  For years, I put my love of horses on the back burner (or abandoned them completely).  At the age of 46, I have finally come to terms with needing to be centered within myself in order to be my best for everyone else.  

Some of the lessons from this weekend's horsemanship clinic resonate with the way we do business at Wild Type Ranch:  The first principle is that a solid foundation must be laid before excellence can be achieved.  We have been building our herd with pedigreed animals for nearly 6 years, tasting every animal we harvest and culling ruthlessly.  We could have made a little more money along the way by being less particular, but quality was always one of our primary goals.  Now, I am confident in the quality of our beef each time we take animals in for harvest.

The second principle is about balance and flexibility.  We are often asked if we are organically certified or 100% grass-fed.  We are neither, although we lean heavily in both those directions.  Our guiding criteria in all our management decisions are animal welfare and product quality.  We use organic fertilizers and mechanical weed control in our efforts to build the health of our pastures.  However, rather than let animals lose weight, or struggle through critical growth periods, we will supplement with small amounts of grain.  Similarly, although we never use hormone implants or feed-through antibiotics, we will treat an animal if it is sick.  As we get better at what we do, we get closer to our ideal management scenario.  One of the advantages of working directly with our consumer customers is that we can earn their trust to do the right thing in a given situation without having to rely on a set of rules that define a label.

Gosh, it seems like the end of the year is rushing upon us.  I saw Christmas decorations and Christmas candy for sale already at the pharmacy this week!  You'd think they'd at least let us get through Halloween!  

On the ranch, this season sees us preparing for the start of breeding for next fall's calves, and a flurry of births from the last of the fall-calving cows.  We'll be ultrasounding our yearlings in December.  The ultrasound takes an image of the ribeye on each animal to measure marbling, which determines the quality grade; Select, Choice or Prime.  Marbling is the small flecks of fat interspersed you can see within the cut steak; it contributes significantly to juiciness and flavore.  We also get a measure of the size of the ribeye muscle and how much backfat each animal has.  We test for tenderness at that time, as well.  All this information goes into our decisions on which animals to keep for breeding and how to process the animals destined for beef.  Because we get our beef processed at a local plant, we don't have the benefit of a national USDA grader. Ultrasound is the way we guarantee that all the steaks we sell would grade the equivalent of choice.  It is also a primary way we keep the quality of the beef we sell at such high levels. 

EXTRA LEAN GROUND BEEF IS BACK IN STOCK:  We have a good stock of extra lean ground beef on hand.  In addition to the reguler by-the-pound price, we are offering 10-packs (10 1-lb pkgs) for $44.00.

GEORGETOWN MARKET TOMORROW:  Be sure to come out this week, as we will not be back in Georgetown until Nov 11.  Our freezers are completely restocked, so come on out and help yourself!

NEXT BRAZOS MARKET APPEARANCE IS NOVEMBER 6
:  We're usually at the Brazos Valley Farmer's Market on the first and 3rd Saturdays.  I'm taking advantage of the rare 5th Saturday this month to take my horse to a horsemanship clinic.  We'll be back in Brazos on November 6, fully stocked and ready for business. 

NEXT CAPTAIN'S CUT AVAILABLE IN DECEMBER:  We anticipate another Captain's Cut harvest to be ready starting December 8. To be Captain's Cut, the beef must be prime or near-prime and be exceptionally tender and tasty. Our Captain's Cut beef is not sold by individual cuts, but only in packs, eighths and quarters.  Please see our website :( Captain's Cut )for details on ordering some of this premium beef.  We are taking reservations now for the December harvest.  The October Capt. Cut sold out in less than 48 hours!

ROUND ROCK MARKET CHANGES VENUE
:  Starting last Saturday, the Round Rock market is trying out a new location: in the grassy open space off main street, downtown.  It is just around the corner from the parking garage where the market has traditionally been held.  The market will be out in the open through the end of the market season.  Our next appearance in Round Rock will be Nov 11, which will be our last Round Rock market for the season.

EIGHTHS, HALVES OR QUARTERS FOR WINTER:  With the Georgetown, Round Rock and Sun City markets closed December through March, perhaps you should consider ordering an 1/8th 1/4 or 1/2 beef for the winter months.  Not only will you guarantee great eating through the winter months, you'll save considerably over buying by the cut!

 Wow!  We've hit a home run with this latest harvest.  All three beeves harvested in the past few weeks passed their tast-testing with flying colors.  One of them was outstanding, and has met the criteria to be "Captain's Cut".   To be Captain's Cut, the beef must be prime or near-prime and be exceptionally tender and tasty.  It takes the best genetics and the best management for grass-raised beef to be this good.  Every year, as we improve our genetics and our grass, the quality of our beef goes up.  The pinnacle of this journey is our Captain's Cut beef.  

Our Captain's Cut beef is not sold by individual cuts, but only in packs, eighths and quarters.  Please see our website (http://sfc.smallfarmcentral.com/dynamic_content/uploadfiles/893/Captains%20Cut.pdf) for details on ordering some of this premium beef.   

WE'LL BE IN ROUND ROCK ON SATURDAY and BACK IN GEORGETOWN NEXT WEEK:  Be sure to come out this week, as it will be two weeks at each market before you see us again.  Our freezers are completely restocked, so come on out and help yourself!

We've got a run of markets and deliveries in the next few days.  Last week and this week are our monthly CSA/subscription delivery days.  We've got a couple special cuts this month, and are restocked on ground beef and doggie shank bones.  Hope to see you at one of the markets!

RIBEYE CUTLETS STILL IN STOCK.  These are individual portion-sized, thin-cut and tenderized from what would usually be a ribeye or New York Strip steak.  They make the most incredible chicken-fried steak you've ever experienced.  They are a special feature this month (until sold out) for $9.00/lb.

WE'LL BE IN GEORGETOWN TOMORROW AND BRAZOS ON SATURDAY:  Be sure to come out this week, as it will be two weeks at each market before you see us again.

NO GEORGETOWN MARKET NEXT THURSDAY:  We will miss the Georgetown market this week and next, due to my travel schedule.  Please catch us tomorrow in Georgetown 3:30-6:30 or in Round Rock on Saturday, October 23 from 8-noon.

LIVE OAK UU CHURCH DELIVERIES SUNDAY:  We will be in Cedar Park at Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Church on Sunday, October 17th, from 12:15-12:45.  There is still time to order for delivery that day.

DYER MERCANTILE RESTOCKED:  If you miss us at the markets, remember you can find our beef at the Dyer Mercantile in Georgetown.  We've recently placed a new, larger freezer in their store, with easier to find (and more) beef. 

CONSIDER ORDER EIGHTHS, HALVES OR QUARTERS FOR WINTER:  With the Georgetown, Round Rock and Sun City markets closed December through March, perhaps you should consider ordering an 1/8th 1/4 or 1/2 beef for the winter months.  Not only will you guarantee great eating through the winter months, you'll save considerably over buying by the cut!

I'm back in town just long enough to go to the Brazos Market on Saturday, do laundry and then head out again on Monday for a week on the road.  So, remember, one more week at the Georgetown Market without our great beef, but we WILL be in Round Rock on Saturday (Oct 9).  Meanwhile, I restocked Dyer Mercantile's freezer to the best of my ability, so there is a selection of patties, steaks, roast, brisket and cutlets there.

It always strikes me, when I travel, how different our day-to-day life here at the ranch is from what most of Americans experience each day.  For one thing, we don't have any television service at all (just DVDs), so we see very few commercials.  It makes me aware (especially for our children) of how bombarded we are with messages of "more is better", for one thing.  The difference in our diet is always apparent to me when I come home from several days of "road-food".  The biggest thing that hit me on this trip was the difference in background noise in public places compared to our life here.  It seems every restaurant, airport lounge or hotel lobby was broadcasting TV, radio or music (or sometimes all three at once) in the background.  I am so used to the quiet here, I realized that all the background sounds were contributing to a general level of raised tension.  Hmmmm.  Wonder what our society would be like if we all had more quiet and less advertising (not to mention good food, raised locally and prepared at home)?

SPECIAL OCTOBER FEATURE CUT:  Ribeye and Loin Cutlets.  These are individual portion-sized, thin-cut and tenderized from what would usually be a ribeye or New York Strip steak.  They make the most incredible chicken-fried steak you've ever experienced.  They are a special feature this month (until sold out) for $9.00/lb.

WE'LL BE IN BRAZOS ON SATURDAY:  Along with our beef, we'll have TIE-DYE for the first time in a while!

NO GEORGETOWN MARKET NEXT THURSDAY:  We will miss the Georgetown market this week and next, due to my travel schedule.  Please catch us in Round Rock on Saturday, October 9 from 8-noon.

It is said to "be careful what you wish for".  I'm finding that to be true this fall!  As you may know, I went to Washington last spring to appear before the Senate Ag committee, as a nominee to the board of directors of FAMC, or Farmer Mac (the ag equivalent to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae).  I've been waiting since then for the Senate to finish the confirmation process, so I can start my tenure as a director, fearing that Washington shenanigans might mean it wouldn't happen at all.

Last week, I heard that the Senate had voted, and suddenly, after a year of nearly nothing happening, I have several "urgent" trips scheduled.  Consequently, our market schedule will be a bit hit and miss for October and November.  I'll keep the calendar page of the website updated, and send updates through the e-mail list.  They promise me that things will settle down once we get through the first couple months.  Meanwhile, thanks for bearing with us.

SUN CITY MONTHLY MARKET DAY IS TUESDAY:  We will be making our monthly appearance at at the Sun City Market tomorrow, Tuesday, September 27.  If you've been missing us out there, come stock up.  As a special bonus, we have a supply of Dyer Dairy cheeses this week!

NO GEORGETOWN MARKET THIS WEEK OR NEXT:  We will miss the Georgetown market this week and next, due to my travel schedule.  Please stop by the Tuesday Sun City market tomorrow from 9-noon, or catch us in Round Rock on Saturday, October 9 from 8-noon.

WE'LL BE IN BRAZOS ON SATURDAY:  Along with our beef, we'll have TIE-DYE for the first time in a while!

WINTER DELIVERY:  
Many customers have been asking about availability of beef over the winter, when the Georgetown and Round Rock markets do not operate.  We will continue to make monthly deliveries for our CSA/subscription customers and to people who place orders.  We are still working out details, but plan to deliver to Round Rock, Georgetown and possibly Sun City once per month in the months of Dec, Jan, Feb and March.
