The Kjarvals use no growth hormones on their animals, so a natural, healthy diet and ample pasture to roam in are hallmarks of the family's farming philosophy. These practices, coupled with skilled breeding techniques, lend the meat its excellent flavor and low-fat content. The farmers also breed Polish Arabian horses, as well as chickens and pigs for their own consumption. As of yet, Spring Lake Farm does not sell meat directly to consumers, but Ulla and her family are keen on bringing their family's old-school farming methods to the market in the future, and in the meantime, they encourage consumers to buy grass-fed meat at local farmers' markets or natural foods stores like Whole Foods. As well, Ulla's an avid blogger, and she has a number of great recipes that suit grass-fed meat, including chili con carne and Chinese meatball soup.
