From Farm to City
From Farm To CityBuilding a restaurant on grass-fed beef might seem straight forward to the uninitiated, but the fact is most grass-fed beef farmers run small operations and lack the capacity to supply our two brgr restaurants. So I was more than a little happy when I met a man who could. John Wood, founder and head farmer of grass-fed meat company U.S. Wellness Meats, not only shares brgr's views on the superiority of grass-fed beef, but he was able to help us come up with the perfect grass-fed blend for the perfect grass-fed brgr.

John is a lifelong farmer. His family has been farming in Missouri for five generations, and the man is passionate about his grass-fed beef. But despite his "all grass-fed, all the time" attitude today, John was surprised as anyone when the first cattle he raised with traditional grass-fed practices turned out to be lean and tasty, tender and full of nutrients. Now that he's gone grass, though, he'll never go back.

Spend just a few minutes with him, and you'll be thinking a lot differently about the food you eat. He'll tell you that grain-fed, feedlot cattle aren't even in the same ballpark as their grass-fed counterparts when it comes to their omega-3 and conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, levels, and that it can be almost impossible to trace the origins of the average hamburger, which can contain meat from hundreds of different animals. (Not like the brgr crew needed additional convincing to go grass-fed, but he makes a good argument.)

We're proud that U.S. Wellness Meats—with the healthy, traditional grass-feeding practices that the company was founded on—works directly with brgr to make every great brgr hamburger. We know that it's not enough for a burger to be as healthy as possible. No, every grass-fed beef brgr needs to be delicious. Your brgr may be healthy, humanely raised, and be traceable back to its origins (just ask, John will tell you), but we really just want you to have an outstanding burger when you're craving one.

Fresh grass-fed beef and a burger made just for you while you wait. Seriously, if you haven't yet, come in and see what all the fuss is about. We're believers in the grass-fed difference, and we're more than happy to tell you what all the fuss is about!
