Reviews for: Lil' Ponderosa Enterprises

First, yes Bob & Kate Boyce are wonderful, kind, friendly people. Going there is a real pleasure, they treat you like old friends! Second, the meat is AMAZING!!!! We have been buying all our beef from them for about a year now, and it is completely different from what you buy at a grocery store! My kids (2 teenage boys) won't touch 'grocery store meat' as they call it now! It is incredibly lean, the ground beef barely leaves grease in the pan, the FLAVOR is incredible, I felt like I had never tasted beef before! We like the flank steaks and sirloins, and of course ground beef. When cooking this kind of steak, I usually rub a little olive oil on the meat. But Uncle Bob will give you all the advice you need, because he eats the meat too!!! And his prices are extremely reasonable, comparable to what you would pay for factory farmed meat at the grocery store. Also, he lets you order exactly what you want, as opposed to some CSA options where you just get what you get. We like knowing where our food comes from, we like knowing the respectable people who are farming it, and we like supporting their efforts.
Well organized farm, great meat, very nice people!

Finally, a place where you can buy beef without fear of ingesting chemicals, hormones or diseased flesh. This farm is well organized and clean in all respects. Bob and Kate Boyce not only do a great job in attending to every detail of this labor intensive enterprise, but they actually excell when it comes to treat their customers with the outmost care and genuine concern. Do yourself a favor and visit the farm so you can experience the open range and the respect that this family places in God's nature and His animals. How is the beef? Excellent! Never tasted beef so fresh and with such an intense flavor. When you consider what you are eating from the local grocery store and what Bob and Kate have to offer, believe me, there is no comparison. You cannot go wrong here! J. Rivera
Clean, immaculate and beautiful farm...

Bob and Kate Boyce are the nicest people that you ever want to meet. It is obvious from the moment that you drive down their driveway that their farm is a labor of love.
I have never seen such a clean and manicured farm in my life...except on a postcard!
Bob gave us a tour of his farm, showed us his herd of Black Angus Steer, explained and showed us the strict diet they eat (all grass!) and the water system he has set up for them.
The steers' coats were clean and glossy and they looked extremely healthy!
Bob never hesitated to give us references and they all gave rave reviews.
We bought gound beef, steaks and a few roasts. Have cooked hamburgers and steaks so far. The flavor is fantastic and the meat is tender.
You can buy beef from other farmers, but Bob's Black Angus are bred for their beef and didn't start out being milking cows.
We highly recommend Lil' Ponderosa Enterprises! My in-laws are still talking about the Boyce's farm and it's been two weeks since we've been there.
