Each recipe is carefully selected and tested, and geared toward home cooks who have a desire to eat healthy, home-cooked meals.

“One of the greatest joys of cooking and serving grass-fed meats and dairy is knowing that they come from farmers who have made conscious choices about stewarding the land in environmentally responsible ways, raising livestock in a humane fashion, and living their own lives in accordance with their values. Here you’ll meet many of those farmers and have access to their favorite recipes. It’s my hope that as you read their stories and savor their favorite dishes, you’ll come to realize the magnitude of your decision to support them and their colleagues by making grass-fed meats and dairy your first choice.” – Shannon Hayes,The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook
