Simply get out a Crock Pot, unpackage your roast, add about 3-4 cups of water, so you can have some good broth, and some salt.  Set your crock pot to low and let cook for about 9 hours or more.  Every roast that you get from Foothill Frolic Farm can be cooked in this fashion.  Our roast do not need any other seasoning to taste good, but of course a roast can be seasoned to any themed liking.  A roast is one meal, plus so many more througout the week.  One roast can turn into roast beef sandwhiches, or used as sides with prepared vegetables, or mixed into summer salads.  A great and simple way for a family or couple to eat well for a few days!

Our favorite thing to do with Beef Bones, other than making delicious Beef Bone Stock, is adding 2 bones into the Pot of Cooking Beans. This practice makes the best tasting cooked beans every time, no matter what variety of bean, while all at the same time adding powerful healing nutrients to your pot of beans. It is kind of like cooking your beans in Beef Stock. Bones can be taken out of the frozen packaged bag as needed, as it is not a big deal to slightly defrost the bones enough to break a couple loose and then put the opened bag, folded over with a big rubberband, back into the freezer. Bones are not affected by short term freezer burn. 



Includes Liver, Heart, Tongue, Kidney, & Suet, with each organ divided, sliced,  and individually packaged to allow for easy preperation.

The listed price is approximately ~$2,550 because this is the average estimate of what the Final/All inclusive WHOLE live animal custom beef share will cost, which includes our farm's Flat $2,100 cost, plus the approximate $410-475 pass through cost of Russell Meat Packing  Processing Fee.  As every whole beef's weight is different, final amount due could be a little more or a little less.  


Custom Beef Shares require that the share holders/owners of the animal are the ones that pay the animal processing fee.  When you purchase a whole live animal custom beef share from Foothill Frolic Farm on Gammon Creek (i.e. Barkley Mills), you then are considered the owner of the live beef animal.  The all inclusive Harvest/Dry Aged Hanging/Processing/Butcher Fee that Russell Meat Packing charges per pound will be passed through directly to you the shareholder. 


Foothill Frolic Farm charges an additional Custom Round Up/Hauling Add on Fee of $152 per WHOLE BEEF.  


There is not a 4% TN food tax added to farm products.  When meat is purchased at a grocery store, your meat cost 4% more!!
