Bone Broth 


The bones from our grass-fed animals can be used to make a healing, detoxifying, mineral rich broth! High quality bones matter - since you’ll be extracting nutrients from the bones you want to make sure the animal was healthy and ate a nutritious diet.



Bone broth is great to have around in the kitchen - not only does it taste great, it offers a huge boost to the immune system. 


I start by roasting hefty marrow bones on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. 

This enhances

the beef flavor.


I then grab some fresh 

rosemary and thyme. 

Then I add onion, garlic, 

pepper corns, and salt 

and put the whole mess 

in the pressure cooker 

for about 8 hours. 



You can also slow cook it for 12+ hours.  You’re looking to extract all the marrow and minerals from the bones. 

Then run it through a strainer and keep the broth. There will be a lot of fat, so best to chill it and skim the fat off the top.  I do this is large batches and can it in quart size jars for use later or you can store it in the refrigerator for a few weeks.  Adding a cup of this to your daily diet will ensure your firing on all cylinders.


Is Bone Broth the same as Stock?

No. Stock is typically simmered for a short amount of time and is used for flavor. Bone broths are simmered for 8-48 hours and are used for taste as well as their nutrient content and medicinal properties.  A real bone broth turns to an almost jelly like consistency in the fridge due to its gelatin content.


How do you use Bone Broth?

  • use it to make soups and stews
  • cook vegetables , braise meat, or use for gravies
  • sip throughout the day
  • scoop the fat out and use it for a cooking oil


It's Turkey Time at the Ranch!


The turkey poults are arriving soon and we're getting excited. Last years flock was a joy to raise, producing  succulent centerpieces for many family holiday dinners.  


Here at Amber Oaks we raise standard Broad-Breasted White turkeys. These are the same size and shape as a supermarket turkey, but ours are raised in the organic, pasture-based system that is at the core of poultry and livestock production at our ranch.

Unlike commercially produced birds—even those labeled “free-range” or “organic”— our pastured turkeys are raised outdoors, where they eat a diet of grass and bugs,  supplemented with organic feed.  Experience the difference!


Impress your friends and family with a fresh, never frozen, free range organic fed  turkey from Amber Oaks Ranch this Thanksgiving.
