Across the country consumers and farmers alike are joining in the grass-fed revolution because it’s tasty, healthy, and better for the environment. Our cattle are rotationally grazed, 100% grass-fed from start to finish, and free of hormones and sub-therapeutic antibiotics. We are currently sold out of quarters of beef, since most of our beef is reserved for our CSA members. However, do contact us if you are interested and we’ll let you know our latest inventory.
Why Grass-Fed Beef?
Grass-fed beef is revered for its integrity, its ability to heal the land, and its superior health properties. Cattle are not biologically designed to eat grain. Grain-fed and -finished cattle are trucked to feedlots and forced a diet of corn, soy, and growth hormones, with regular antibiotics to keep them alive.
Here are just some of the many ways grass-fed beef is superior to grain-fed:
-Lower in total fat, sat. fats, and calories
-Higher in total Omega-3s
-Healthier ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids
-Higher in Vitamin E, Thiamin and Riboflavin
-Higher in Minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium
-Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter
