Because of our commitment to local as well as natural, healthy and sustainable, we want you to check out our PROTEIN 150! We source many of our protein items within 150 miles of our headquarters. We support local companies through a partnership initiative to source protein locally whenever possible.
Open Spaces Meats ~ Open Spaces meats are raised naturally. What an animal is fed, greatly affects the nutritional value of the beef from that animal. The difference between grain fed and grass fed animal products is fairly dramatic. Grass fed beef products tend to be much lower in total fat than beef from grain fed cattle. Grass fed beef is what is referred to as a nutrient dense food. That means that the amount of essential vitamins, minerals, and proteins is higher per calorie than other foods.
Mary’s Chickens ~ What makes Mary’s Chickens different is the belief that nutrition is the key to health. Mary’s formula for good nutrition is simple…When she and her family eat food that is grown as nature intended, it makes everyone feel good and keeps them healthy. Mary’s Free Range Chickens has joined the 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating Standards Program with Global Animal Partnership. The 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating Standards Program structure encourages higher welfare practices and systems to the benefit of farmers, consumers, retailers, and the animals. Mary’s Chicken are all “air chilled” prior to packaging. Mary’s Chickens believes that the air chilled method produces a better tasting chicken. With no water added, the air chilled method keeps the “real” chicken flavor and juices. No water is absorbed, so you get the natural flavor of chicken.
Diestel Turkey Ranch ~ Diestel Turkey Ranch has been providing the highest quality all-natural and organic free-range turkeys from their beautiful ranch in the Northern California foothills since 1949. They still own and operate the sustainable farming operation, which allows them to practice careful range management and ensures that every Diestel turkey product we produce is absolutely delicious. At Diestel, creating premium quality turkey and turkey projects begins with sourcing the grains that are milled on the ranch and continues throughout every aspect of their operation. They source the highest-quality grains, mill their own feed, give the animals extra time to grow naturally, use multiple breeds to ensure a fully mature turkey at every weight range, and treat each animal with compassion. Customers say Diestel turkeys have a rich “old-fashioned flavor,” incredible tenderness, and texture. Diestel Turkey Ranch’s high standards have remained unchanged since the ranch’s founding in 1949.
