Wild in The Kitchen - Recipe Blog

Welcome to the Wild Kitchen! 

We created Wild in the Kitchen Recipe Blog to widen the traditional lens of beef butchery to view the practice holistically and help bring that nose to tail philosophy into your kitchen. My dad always said we sell everything but the moo.. and we’re working on that!
At Wild Earth we pride ourselves on celebrating each unique aspect of the animal and letting little go to waste by offering the lesser knowns, the old fashioned, the newfangled, and the butcher’s secrets. It’s no small task to raise an animal for food and not one we take lightly, by stepping outside the box a little we can truly honor each and every animal.
In a beef industry founded in efficiency, mega meat packing plants focused on feeding the masses, we found an opportunity to set ourselves apart. Not as superior but simply by raising a different animal that produces a notably different beef.  Our cattle come with a story rich in tradition, transparent and traceable background, paramount humane treatment, and minimal carbon footprint.
Our beef boasts a different flavor profile, texture, and even looks different than your typical grocery store beef. It’s full of beta carotene rich, yellow fat from their 100% grass fed diet, beautiful texture from developed and active muscles, and big beefy flavor from the dry aging process.
The most rewarding aspect of having a small beef company is the ability to watch your dreams grow and move through a long, beautiful process to get the best quality beef to feed your family. So come on, let’s get a little Wild in the Kitchen.
