Good Day Wonderful People,
Could someone please let me know where Annally Farms is near. I know its STX, but near where???
Annaly Farms "The Meat Market" is located in Upper Love
It's on "that road" which becomes the River road which goes by Carambola Golf Course.
Driving west out Midland Road, take Midland road west until it ends and becomes the worst section of road on StX, go past the Episcopal church and you'll see it well marked on the right.
I don't like the beef from there. Tastes fishy.
The local Senepol beef is an acquired taste. It is grass-fed and really much better for you. But it does taste a little different than the corn-fed we are used to. They also sell other, non local beef, which is what we are used to. Prices are competitive and we go once in a while and always plan to go more often, but wind up buying from the groceries. Serious foodies go here on Saturday morning, then to the La Reine farmers/fish market, then south and east to Art Farm. And Finally back to La Reine Chicken Shack for lunch. Bring your cooler. Oh, and a stop at the dump and post office. It just doesn't get any better than that!! lol
Exactly as Linda J said. We tried their steaks and quickly realized there's a big difference in taste between grass-fed and corn-fed cows. My wife usually gets steaks from Kusco (sp.) or possibly Merchant's Mart - almost certain it's the former and not the latter. These come from the mainland and taste like what we're used to.
What I didn't know is that grass-fed is supposed to be healthier than corn-fed cattle. Can Linda J. or anybody tell me why?
Have you been out Midland Rd. lately? It's now one of the best roads on STX. Doesn't get too bad until you're almost in the rainforest. Then...lookout!!
I drive Midland Road at least 4 times a week.
Why they stopped reconstructing it at the goat farm is anybody's guess. The road through the bottoms is crazy bad.
It goes from "one of the best" to "one of the worst".
Best Road on StX? Southshore would get my vote.
Grass fed is also much better for the cow since their digestive system is developed to digest grass, not corn.
Also, Annally uses native Senepol cattle, not the breeds usually found in the states so that may contribute to the different tastes. I like the Senepol meat, but different strokes for different folks.
