Where's the Beef?


We're OVER THE MOON to finally offer Grass Fed Beef at the Heritage Farmer's Market at Victoria Gardens every Friday from 10 am - 2 pm. Real Country Meat will be providing the FRESHEST selections of beef. Come support & show them that we appreciate them bringing good cuts of meat to Rancho Cucamonga!

Real Country Meat is a family owned business, raising cattle locally in Apple Valley, CA. We have been raising cattle for 8 years and would now like to offer the community the opportunity to a healthier way of eating. We provide sustainable agricultural grass fed and grass finished Black Angus Beef. No corn or animal by-products have been used. That means No GMOs. We DO NOT pump our Angus with hormones or growth additives. Our cattle are raised in a humane and non-stressful environment. All of our meat is 100% USDA approved.

Real Country Meat strives to give every family the ability to have grass fed Angus Beef without having to invest in a large freezer. We will be selling individual cuts that are vacuum sealed in USDA approved packaging starting February 6th at the Victorville Farmer's Market

Last friday we had the amazing Chef Matanah Simmons of Rawlistics come out to our Victoria Gardens market and demonstrate how to make a delicious cereal that is healthy, tasty, and proved to be quite popular with the kiddies. For those of you that missed the demo please enjoy the recipe below. I've already made this cereal two days in a row (I'm not a breakfast person) because it's so tasty and light. I hope you enjoy it as much as the HFM staff does!
