A Healthier Beef Stick Preserved by Fermentation Sourced from Audubon Conservation Certified Ranches

Like most families with children, we often are on the go and will rely on snacks to tide the kids over until dinner. But most snacky foods are just over-processed carbohydrates, and I wanted something better than the more common protein snacks, which are often spicy-sticks with mystery meat.

While searching to find a healthy protein-based snack for my family I was fortunate to find Blue Nest Beef (affiliate link), which produces 100% grass fed beef sticks that are preserved via fermentation, which can benefit our microbiome as well as being minimally processed. What is even better is that Blue Nest Beef sources all of its grass-fed beef from Audubon Conservation Certified Ranches. So not only is it healthier and less processed, but the ranches are recognized by the Audubon Society as providing habitat for the birds – win-win!

I had been looking for a beef stick option that was preserved by fermentation & was thrilled to find a company that also invested in improving our grasslands. Joe & I love to share education on the value of using native plants to support our environment, so I was very happy to find Blue Nest Beef (affiliate link).

It almost seems too good to be true. Blue Nest Beef makes a healthy, 100% grass fed beef stick preserved by fermentation rather than chemicals, and their ranches provide habitat for birds. The beef sticks taste great and my kids love them. I use them in lunchboxes for them. And, I find myself grabbing them for that mid-day snack while running errands. We’ve also found them useful for our cross-country adventures to visit relatives on the road.

I reached out to Blue Nest Beef to request to be an affiliate for them because I loved the combination of the quality ingredients in their products, as well as their commitment to improving our grasslands.

What is Audubon Conservation Ranching?

According to the Audubon Society, there are 4 areas that a ranch must meat standards in to become an Audubon Conservation Certified Ranch. Any regular visitor to Growit Buildit knows that these values align perfectly with our own views and goals. Their areas are:

  • habitat management for birds
  • livestock must free graze on open grassland with no antibiotics, no animal-byproducts, & minimal grain supplementation
  • must demonstrate best practices for animal health & welfare
  • use native grasses for forage, neonicotinoid pesticides are prohibited and others are restricted, & waterways are protected

Hi! I'm Tara, half of the Growit Buildit duo. I am a frugal DIY enthusiast!! My professional background is in education and counseling, but have spent the last few years as a stay at home mom, which has given me the opportunity to explore my passions that have been put aside for so long. I gravitate towards what I'd consider modern farmhouse style, with a little boho mixed in. I have planned remodels for larger projects, like our kitchen, as well as many smaller DIY projects around our house. In addition, I create a lot of smaller craft projects. I am currently a maker for a local retail boutique in our area called 6ix North. I hope my posts provide you with some useful information for your DIY projects.
