"Although I was a bit daunted purchasing a side of beef, it was well worth it. The beef this small farm produces is by far the best in flavor and texture that I have ever had in my home. We couldn't believe the difference. The steaks were beautifully marbled, roasts were fork tender and everything was rich and delicious. Even after 9 months in the freezer, last night's steak was as good as last June's. The butcher the farm works with is very patient and cuts the meat anyway you like it. If you are like me, you don't know what you want and are overwhelmed with the choices. He has plenty of suggestions for the first timer. We even got marrow bones to make soup stock all winter and researched new recipes to use unfamiliar cuts and ground beef, which you get a lot of.
If you are considering buying this beef, I hope you will follow through. The stewardship that farms like the Taylor's exhibit needs to be supported by the people in the community. People have lost sight of where their food comes from and often folks don't really know how much pollution, fertilizer, fuel oil and resources it takes to get commercially farmed food to the grocery store. We are not shown the conditions the majority of feed lot cattle live in because we would be outraged. The Bar T Ranch takes proper care of the land and the animals that feed us and we consumers need to take care of our local farmers. Thank you Nature's Beef for providing a fantastic product and for doing so the right way."
"Again, thanks very much for this, your beef is unlike anything I've had. When I go to restaurants (ones that don't serve beef from you) I avoid things like steak and burgers because I can make them far better at home!"
"I was raised in the country and my family raised beef for meat (hobby farm, small scale). I have craved the ease of having quality meat that I am comfortable feeding my children, like I had grown with my own family. We ordered a cow and split it with four families we knew last year. None of us were disappointed, the quality was wonderful. Having purchased it ahead and having the main part of a meal on hand with grocery prices fluctuating was such a blessing. If money was tight, I could defrost a roast or whatever we were in the mood for and I only needed to add the sides. The meat has been excellent in flavor and quality and Glen at Northwest Meat Processing did a wonderful job helping me choose how to have the meat cut and the way they package it is excellent for freshness. I have no hesitation in recommending Nature's Beef and Bar T Ranch. Our family is splitting a whole cow this year - our experiment last year is going to continue to be a healthy way of life."
"Just wanted to let you know that we had our first taste of your beef this evening. To say it was outstanding is an understatement. We are extremely pleased with our purchase and the quality of your beef."
"Until we sampled beef from the Bar T Ranch this summer, my wife and I had not had such delicious beef since the mid-to-late 50’s. We were astounded by the flavor of the natural beef from Richard Taylor’s ranch, and if we are lucky, it will be the only beef we will buy in the future. Mr. and Mrs. Taylor are a delight and their beef is nothing less than 5-star. We feel very fortunate to find this excellent source of beef so close by, and encourage others to try it for themselves."
"Thank you for your incredible and very healthy beef. The quality is amazing. My husband, friends and family have never tasted meat taste nearly as good as yours. You deserve a HUGE Gold Star on taking the time to raise cows the way God intended, with love and compassion. Feeding your cattle grass is what makes their meat not only tender but healthy for our bodies. We have too many chemicals in our food chain today this is why we have so much disease in our country. Thank you for caring about keeping our bodies healthy by growing healthy meat. One of our nutritional mentors, Dr Dobbins states, “We need at least two to three servings of red meat each week. There's an amino acid that is vital to our bodies and can only be found in red meat, the healthier the meat the better". Your farm produces what we consider the healthiest red meat you can find in South Carolina, how lucky we are to have found you! Thank you again for your terrific health and naturally raised cattle!"
"I have been eating Richard's beef for a few years now, and should've already posted a comment! I recommend this beef to everybody I meet, because it is truly the most delicious and healthy beef I've had. We know Richard personally as a good friend, so I feel very confident in saying you can trust that the beef is the highest quality you will find. I ran out of beef before my next order was ready and we just didn't eat any beef until we got more! You will be suprised how spoiled you get from Richard's beef. Not only is Richard and his family wonderful people and great friends, they work hard and take great pride in what they do at the ranch. Please support them and you will understand what everybody else is raving about!"
