Rain Crow Grass-fed Beef

Rain Crow Grass-fed beef is a new addition to our list. The beef is entirely grass-fed, and processed in their own processing plant using only water to wash the meat. The packaging has been checked and is corn-free as well. (Their seasoned products were not checked. So use caution with those.)

They can be found at several Whole Foods locations. "Grass-fed beef from Rain Crow Ranch is available in our stores in central Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin."

Products are also available online.

(For the discussion, please visit their Facebook page here)

******* Removed

As it turns out, Rain Crow's initial answers on Facebook weren't entirely correct.

The meat is washed in lactic acid and the acid wash is left on for 24 hours (long enough to soak right into the meat - a lactic acid marinade if you will) and then rinsed off with water.

This meat is being removed from the list.

For more info on their process see the full report at Delphi.
