Since October, Svante’s Ranch Direct has been slinging burgers, steaks and other cuts of grass-fed beef from a restaurant at 201 E. Main St. in Round Rock. Late last month, they opened a brick-and-mortar retail shop around the corner.

The ranch where the beef is raised is located near Abilene and was founded by the sons of Svante Magnus Swenson, the first Swedish immigrant to Texas, for whom the restaurant is named.

Customers can order ground beef, steaks, roasts, bones and beef broth online for free delivery in the Austin area, including Cedar Park and up to Georgetown, or for delivery by mail to the lower 48 states, with varied shipping rates depending on the location.

If you want to pick up the meat yourself, you can stop by the store next to the restaurant in Round Rock that is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, or go from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays to the Barton Creek Farmers Market near Barton Creek Square.
