One of the most nutrient-dense products we carry is our beef bone broth. Made with our grass-fed marrow bones, this is a recipe that has been nourishing cultures for generations. For the last 12 years, we have use the tried and true recipe from Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions cookbook. 

Bone broth remains a diet staple for the Weston A. Price Foundation. We have customers suffering with everything from chronic fatigue to cancer, who call in asking for broth at their doctor's request. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, bone broth is the perfect elixir to add to soups, roasts, or add some herbs and sip it straight. 

We offer three convenient sizes of bone broth:

- 14 ounces/1.75 cups

- 2.4 pounds/4.8 cups 

- 5 pounds/10 cups

Our bone broth ships frozen. For storage, the broth may be thawed and separated into smaller containers. Some customers will thaw the broth and pour it into ice cube trays. The best storage option would depend on how quickly you intend to use the broth. We recommend storing in the refrigerator for up to two weeks and the freezer for long-term storage.
