Pasturebird, a pasture-raised chicken company, is on a mission to revolutionize agriculture by applying modern technology to ancient farming methods and to make pasture-raised more accessible for everyone. Pasturebird believes in the regenerative power of pasture-raised chicken for land, animal and community. Its goal is to improve the standard for raising animals and revolutionize farming from a man-made system of depletion back to a natural ecosystem of perpetual regeneration and replenishment.
Pasturebird’s chickens live outside in a natural habitat—on grass, in the fresh air and sunshine with plenty of space to roam and forage—and are rotated to a new pasture every single day in a "floorless coop." The company offers a variety of chicken products, from whole and spatchock chickens to chicken wings, drumsticks and breasts available direct-to-consumer nationwide.

KC Cattle Company
KC Cattle Company is a veteran-owned company that sells hormone-free Wagyu beef raised on its own farms. It employs and mentors veterans and donates proceeds from sales to many veterans' foundations. All their cows are raised in a stress-free environment, so the beef is more tender and the cows are happy. No hormones or antibiotics and more omega-3 and omega-6 because of higher marbling and good fat.
They have two amazing gift packages for Father’s Day including:
Pa’s Pick Bundle—This pick is perfect for dad to enjoy a delicious Wagyu KC Strip Steak dinner with plenty of World Famous Gourmet Wagyu Beef Hot Dogs and Wagyu Beef and Bacon Cheeseburger Bratwurst to share with everyone there to celebrate him!
The Backyard Dad Bundle—If the father in your life enjoys spending his free time in the backyard tending to the grill while telling copious amounts of "dad jokes" then this bundle will certainly please! Just remind him, it's no joking matter when preparing Wagyu Ribeye Steaks. Or maybe you let him tell those "cheesy" jokes, that way he just might share!
We know you'll love the father-daughter duo behind Flannery Beef just as much as we do. San Francisco native Bryan Flannery, Jr., learned the meat business from his father, Bryan Sr., who founded beloved Bryans Quality Meats in San Francisco in 1963. And now Bryan Jr. and his daughter, Katie, are the proud team behind Flannery Beef specializing in high quality, USDA Prime Holstein Beef. The duo has worked tirelessly to source, cut and dry age the finest quality beef products available anywhere—and the effort has paid off.
Previously available only to chefs, Flannery Beef pivoted during COVID to get their beef, pork and lamb into the hands of consumers. Their gift boxes are the perfect thank you gift for a neighbor and we love the burger blends to keep on hand during the grilling months. Remember them for holidays as their rack of lamb is a stunner.
Porter Road began in 2010 as a way to get quality beef to consumers without the middleman. They've been shipping their hand-cut meat since 2017 and you can order beef, pork, lamb and chicken to be delivered to your door.
We especially love the BYOBun Kit as it is the perfect option for weekend grilling, or to take with you on your next camping trip. You provide the buns, Porter Road provides the pasture-raised bratwurst and hot dogs, and Cleveland Kitchen provides the Classic Caraway Kraut and Roasted Garlic Kraut. It's pretty much a match made in grilling heaven.

Right now they're offering a free BBQ bundle with your order: two strip steaks, six burgers, and 5 lbs. of drumsticks for FREE in your first box. Exp. 5/31
