It's that time of the year when the heat and those long days in the saddle tend to wear the crew a bit thin. But the cattle will soon come home from the range to beautiful green pastures here on the home ranch. Knowing that time on the range is coming to an end, we're all pushing through the exhaustion to savor these last few weeks. We all know that in a month or two, sore muscles will be a distant memory. We'll recall only the clear night skies, camp dinners, and high timber meadows, and we'll miss it.

15% off Sockeye Salmon
It's the summer Sockeye sale spectacular! There's a lot of Sockeye available online these days, and much of it is, well, mediocre. First of all, a lot of it farmed, grown in giant cages in salt water bays and sounds along the North Pacific seacoast. In these places, they feed various kinds of 'fish chows,' many of which even include soybean meal. Not weird enough? Well, it gets weirder. Food coloring is added to the whitish-sickly looking flesh to make it Sockeye red. Even many so-called 'wild fish' are hatchery raised, fed baby fish chow. Not so wild after all, friends.
That's enough tales from the sea of nasty. Our friends, Joe and Angela Echohawk of Kwee-Jack fish truly wild Sockeye in Alaska's Bristol bay. It's the largest intact non-hatchery Sockeye run on the planet. They catch them in shallow waters off the coast, hand them off to their tenders who then transport them immediately to a fillet and blast freezing facility on the Mainland. It's why the flavor is stable and intact, and why each filet portion has in it the health benefits wild salmon is known for. This week, take 15% all Sockeye when you use "surf and turf" until Sunday at midnight.
Flatiron, Flank, & Flap!
This trio is the epitome of flavor--and wellness--from the wild 'turf' of Alderspring. Caryl (Glenn's wife, biz partner, CFO, mom to 7 daughters, and PhD plant ecologist/botanist) says that there are probably over 500 species our cattle regularly graze in the wild country of the range each summer. What that means is that there's incredible flavor potential in all those plants--and health benefits.
What we like about these three cuts is they flat contain flavor like no other, and it is because of the orientation of their 'grain.' Caramelize all you want on that grill--because the juices and flavors are intact with that longitudinal grain orientation! Intense flavor defines these three cuts--it's why we love them for a quick grill solution!
This week, take 15% all of these three when you use "surf and turf" until Sunday at midnight.
osso bucos, Stew and Kabobs!
Ossos are also known as shank steaks, and they, too are flavor defined. We throw a few of these in stews so the marrow and collagen of the included marrow bone permeates. Or, cook and simmer in a low heat oven, create a lovely brothy or roux, and serve over a perfectly presented risotto. The possibilites are fairly endless!
Stew and Kabobs can make an even meatier presentation...but also stand alone as a lovely marinaded kabob on a summer grill!
Side note: Fido loves these too--raw. Meat and bone meet for canine perfection. We give these to our border pups after a day of hard work herding cattle on the range! This week, take 15% off all Ossos when you use "surf and turf" until Sunday at midnight.
Ground sirloin...the original 'steakburger." Chosen for it's ultimate beefiness, this ground makes an impressive burger, albeit a little leaner, the juiciness and tender carry the flavor of pure wild grass-fed quite nicely.
We like these a tad on the medium rare side for the best of burger beef experience!
These also perform very well in tacos or lasagnas, and deliver a nice beef dimension to either entree'.

Grab a Snack to go!
Want to eat right on the go, too? We actually started making our Wild Cow beef sticks for ourselves, because when we're not out riding the range or working, the 7 Alderspring sisters are usually out hiking, skiing, traveling, or rock climbing. Our whole family struggles with food sensitivities including celiac disease, dairy allergies, and autoimmune issues, and many of your typical on-the-go snacks just make us sick.
These sticks, made from just our organic grass fed beef and a few basic seasonings (we even made the "Plain Jane" flavor, which is just salt, celery seed powder, and beef) fuel your adventures, taste great, and give you a protein hit without all the carbs and sugar! Completely shelf-stable...put them in your backpack or breifcase without refrigeration needed.
You can find all our Wild Cow sticks (and jerky!) on the page below. Get just the sampler pack of 5 to try, or get a larger pack that ships free!
For you customers who want discounted Alderspring but don't have time to shop around, these are our grab-and-go bundles that are already discounted by 15% off our a la carte rates!
SPECIAL NOTE! The family freezer filler (3F) is back in stock!
