Brought by Lebanese immigrants to Mexico in the '60s this idea of layering and cooking meat on a stick in front of an open flame was re-invented with Mexican flavors. Read more here.
So how did we go from a garage-based farm co-op to a direct to consumer pasture to plate operation where we SHIP to your doorstep? A lot of taste testing, proof of concept, pricing, budgeting, packaging, processing, and fencing, ha! But honestly, it has been incredibly exciting to see these meats that we have taken care of for the last 18 months in our customer's freezers and on their dinner table. We literally can not explain the excitement we get when we can help you feed your family well. Hillbilly Nutrition was born to inspire families to eat real food. It has now been reborn to bring delicious, passionately raised, nutritious meats to directly to your door.
Our motivation to eat clean, passionately raised meats came over us like a wave. How that led us to where we are today I can only thank the good Lord above for laying it on our hearts and guiding us to fulfill those dreams. We thank every single farmer that has guided us, friends and family that have supported us and believed in us, and customers that develop a taste to eat like a hillbilly too. We are looking forward to serving more delicious meats to more customers in 2020.
When Gary and I started considering starting our own farm, we made a list of desires and restrictions around that decision.

We didn't want to be further away from all of our family, but we knew that country life would put some distance between some family and friends that we loved.
