Designer Foods

Designer Clothes have been around a long time – but what about Designer Foods?

Go to a New York Fashion Show and you’ll probably see some of the most outlandish looking clothes that you know you would never wear! Clothing designers, like Calvin Klein, create something new and different in order to be noticed and ‘ahead of the game’. It is simply the fashion world in which we live.

This same phenomenon is happening with foods. All across the country, chefs are competing to create what many might call outlandish combinations of foods to impress judges at competitive shows – and to sell to customers at high-dollar restaurants.

Chefs are to foods what Clothing Designers are to clothes!

Know that everything created is not new. For example; many chefs have rediscovered wood ashes and how they contribute flavor. Native Indians used wood ashes to add flavor to some of their foods, especially corn. They learned this from observing wild life and how they craved ashes from burned vegetation. What is very interesting is that Indians were never known to use wood ash on meat to enhance flavor. Because wild animals graze only on grasses, their meat naturally has tremendous flavor.

Why do clothing designers and chefs feel the need to add to what already exists? Could it be because the clothing or food is bland? Could it be because consumers are bored? Could it be because of the increasing demand to be new and “cutting edge”?

We have great news! We have received feedback from our customers that our grass-fed beef and lamb is not bland. They do not get bored with the flavor and do not need sauces or rubs. Lastly, grass-fed meat is “cutting edge"! There has been an increasing awareness for healthy, quality food that is ethically raised; food that is naturally flavorful and nutritious – just the way nature intended!

Have GMOs, Genetically Modified Organisms, Overtaken our Food Supply?

In many cases, GMOs have taken over our food supply. Unless a product is identified as “GMO Free” or is labeled Organic, there is a good chance it contains GMO ingredients. Some states have tried passing laws requiring food companies to identify products with GMOs, but that has been axed by a new federal law. This new law forbids states from passing laws requiring food companies to identify products containing GMOs.

Our position at BF Farms is very simple: We do NOT recommend the consumption of any foods containing ingredients derived from GMOs; however, we recommend that you do your own research and make this call for you and your family.

To get a feeling of how GMOs have taken over our food supply, let’s concentrate on just two products – corn and alfalfa. (There are many more!)

Corn is by far the most pervasive in our food supply as this GMO food is found in most processed foods such as; corn oil, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, corn starch, modified corn starch, etc. But it doesn’t stop here! GMO corn is the number one ingredient used to feed cattle in our feedlots. The use of GMO feed, along with the use of antibiotics and steroids, is the #1 reason for the demand of grass-fed meats.

Alfalfa is a relative newcomer to the GMO parade. How does alfalfa get into our food supply? It is fed to cattle, and just like corn, we get the results of GMOs when we eat the meat.

The biggest users of alfalfa are dairies. Think about it, GMOs have now found their way into our milk supply along with other dairy products such as cheese, butter, cream, sour cream, etc. Dairies also feed corn, so these cows are getting a double whammy when it comes to GMOs – and so are we!

We encourage you to do your own research regarding GMOs, and we also want you to know that BF Farms’ cattle and sheep will never get any GMO products. We are GMO free!
