Bone Broth is made by simmering the different bones of an animal. In beef you can get shanks, knuckles and meaty beef bones and some people even use the hooves. The benefits of making your own would be you know what your are eating. You are getting many important vitamins. Animal bones are rich in calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and other minerals. These are the same minerals that are needed to make your bones strong. People also use the connective tissues which are known to support joint health. Marrow is found in some bones and it provides many vitamins and minerals as well as Omega fatty acids. All of these parts contain protein collagen which turns into a gelatin when cooked and yields many important amino acids. As the bones simmer their nutrients are released into the broth into a form which your body can absorb. A lot of people do not get enough of these nutrients in their diet so using bone broth is a good way to supplement them into your diet. There are many other reasons and things that bone broth can help with. Please read bone broth on healthline.com to see more of these benefits. I did my research for this article from their website. Louderbranch Farms carries beef bones along with chicken bones, feet and organs to make stock to fight off the winter colds. I have also included a recipe to make beef bone broth.

The voice behind the blog will be Mike & Rhonda Loudermilk. Life at Louderbranch Farms is very far from simple. It is very complicated at times. We would love to live a slower paced life but that is just not possible for what we are trying to accomplish. We both work full time jobs for others plus have our own business. We spend most of our time working. That is what we do! We love gardening, caring for our animals and making handmade bath products such as Rhonda Lynne's Ole Fashioned Soap.
