I love Boggy Creek Farm. When everyone was live tweeting their horrible Christimas Eve and Thanksgiving Eve shopping experiences at the grocery store, I was shopping peacefully, amongst the chickens and friends, in a glorious setting. They have the list of non-farm products on their website, but I had been eyeing a newcomer to their farmstand, One Girl Farm. Alongside the Thunderheart Bison, and Alexander Farm meats in the freezers, there was One Girl Farm. “No compromise, humane and grass fed.” I have had some less than great experiences with some grass fed beef, so I picked a chuck roast with plans to cook it in the slow cooker for hours, on a cold day.
If Carol Ann Sayle says its is good, I trust her without hestiation. And it was delicious. After cooking it on low in a little beef stock wine and onions, it was so fork tender, I had a hard time getting it out of the cooker. It was beyond tender and full of delicious flavor. I took a picture, but lately my pictures have looked like James Lileks’ Gallery of Regretable Food, and I don’t want to turn anyone off this delicious beef. There is information on her farm on her website. www.onegirlfarm.com. She obviously cares about her cows, and that makes me happy. I love this picture from her website:

It appears that Boggy Creek is the only Austin location you can get One Girl Farm beef. I’m a fan! Based on my chuck roast experience, I will try other cuts that do not require slow cooking. I suspect they will be delicious.
