What's the story behind your name, Teton Waters Ranch?
Our ranch is located right at the base of the Tetons, on the Idaho side. That picture you see on our homepage is of the eastern portion of our ranch, which rolls down to the Teton River. Those waters provide our land and our cattle with the growth and health that makes our beef so unique. We do not take this resource for granted. In fact, we've opted to highlight that unmatched difference in our name, Teton Waters. Makes sense now, right?
Does grass-fed beef cook differently than commodity beef?
Yes, it sure does. Grass-fed beef typically has a lower fat content than grain-fed beef. The fat it does have is full of nutrients that add to the flavor of the cut and the healthiness of the meal. Therefore, you don't necessarily want to trim off all the healthy fat from our TWR beef. Additionally, the leanness of our beef will allow for faster cooking. Please read through our cooking suggestions for more detail on how to best prepare TWR beef.
Why is your ground beef so darned good?
Well, that may sound like a rhetorical question, but we're often asked this. We've heard many complimentary adjectives used to describe our beef. For our ground beef, one very common word has been "clean". And it makes a lot of sense, even though that is not a word commonly used to describe flavor. It has a lot to do with what our beef is, but even more to do with what our beef is not. Clean because it has no chemical products or residues in it. Clean because it contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids as opposed to the less healthy omega-6 found in most all other beef. Clean because it comes from healthy animals. Clean because there is truly nothing unnatural in our beef. That makes for beef that is flavorful, healthy, and just plain good.
