What is bone broth?
If the term “bone broth” is throwing you off, you may know it better as chicken or beef stock. It’s essentially a soup base made by simmering the bones and connective tissue of an animal (cow, chicken, turkey, etc.) with seasoning in water for 24 to 72+ hours.

What are the benefits of bone broth?
- A study conducted by University of Michigan states that the fat tissue of bone marrow contains a hormone called adiponectin that ensures smooth digestion of food, regulates the level of insulin and lowers down the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
- Bone marrow contains myeloid and lymphoid stem cells, which transform into white blood cells and red blood cells that improve immunity of the body and contribute in-cell repair and regeneration.
- Certain studies suggest that bone marrow contains more quantity of vitamins and minerals than the meat itself. It also has a higher amount of calcium, which is excellent for bone health and may help prevent problems like arthritis.
- Collagen present in bone marrow releases antioxidants inside the body, which help boost skin health and prevent early aging of skin.
What do you do with your food scraps?
We are proud to partner with local farms like 63rd Street Farm in Boulder, CO to give our food waste a second life. The leftover vegetables & scraps are converted to compost or silage to supplement the diet of livestock and reduce methane emissions.
How do you package your broth?
Our product is high quality, even when it comes to the packaging. That is why we chose to use American made glass jars.
