FLYING B BAR RANCH GRASSFED MEAT NOW ON THE MENU AT ICONIC DENVER HOTEL
The Brown Palace Commits to Serving Local and Sustainable Products
(Denver) Grassfed beef from Flying B Bar Ranch, an American Grassfed Association Certified Producer, is now on the menu at Denver’s Brown Palace restaurants. The new addition is part of the ongoing effort by Chef Garrett Kasper to include as many local and sustainable products as possible in the hotel’s dining rooms.
For Brad and Margaret Buchanan of Flying B Bar in Strasburg, Colo., the opportunity is an affirmation of the work they’ve been doing since buying the ranch several years ago. Their animals are fed a diet of nothing but grass, never confined in a feedlot, and never given antibiotics or hormones. The Buchanans are also committed to conservation, both of the soil and wildlife habitat on the ranch, and the animals are humanely raised and even benefit from Margaret’s skills with massage and Reiki.
“We’re really stoked about it,” said Brad Buchanan. “They’ve really impressed us. The Brown Palace is all about local sourcing for everything – vegetables, spices, and now our beef. They’ll be buying whole loins, a fair amount of burger, short ribs, and beef cheeks.”
Flying B Bar also sells direct to consumers and is working with several other restaurants and retail outlets in the Denver Metro area.
