“Make a big-ass meatloaf. You don’t even have to share it.” This is our good friend Lisa—she’s married to Mike’s best friend and unofficial product development chief Dan.
Dan risks being unoriginal, but he can’t get his mind off burgers. “Charcoal grill all the way, with just a little mesquite seasoning.” Plus, “Cheese. Always cheese. A good, sharp Tillamook cheddar.”
We think our 20% fat ground beef makes the best burgers. And five pounds is perfect for grilling when the family’s in town from Michigan for a beautiful Oregon summer sojourn.
Then there’s chili.
Our lean 10% fat ground beef is perfect. You can skip the “drain off the fat” instruction. In fact, use the lean ground for any of your meatball, taco, or chili recipes.
Dan’s favorite chili recipe hails from an old Disney cookbook entry from 1974. (Dan is in love with Disney and cookbooks. And Lisa.) Dan has modified the chili recipe over time, and it's won him two awards. The chili's got a little bit of sweet, a little bit of savory, and it melds them both together beautifully. “It. Is. Amazing,” says Lisa.

About our beef: Our grass-fed, grass-finished beef is raised on our farm in Oregon’s lush Willamette River Valley. We grow all the feed for our cows, and we never use hormones or antibiotics. Why do we say “grass-finished”? Labeling laws changed making it allowable for cows fattened on grain lots to be labeled as grass-fed. At Lonely Lane, our cows are never fattened on hard grains. Throughout their lives they eat forage (whole, green plants). That’s why our beef tastes so good, and why we make sure to let you know it’s both grass-fed and grass-finished.
In addition, all our meat is processed on-site at our USDA-inspected processing facility. It’s rare for a family farm to have the ability to process on site, and it’s something that we’ve worked hard for, ensures the highest quality of our cuts, and allows us to support other small Oregon farmers.
