Grass Fed, exactly what cattle were supposed to eat. Our animals are raised on grass pastures and drink from clean mountain streams. This provides happier cattle and healthier meat. Grass fed meat is leaner and less greasy. When you cook our meat it will always be tender and delicious!
Research has indicated grass-fed meat is:
Healthy for people. Grass-fed meat is lean, contains a high percentage of good fats – Omega 3s and CLA — and beneficial antioxidant vitamins and minerals!
Healthy for animals.
Cattle, goats, sheep, and bison evolved to eat grass and not much else. Feeding them a diet rich in grains creates an acidic environment in their digestive systems, leading to disease and the need for treatment with antibiotics.
Healthy for the planet.
Pasture-based farming restores natural ecosystems and wildlife habitat, reduces reliance on petrochemicals, improves the soil with organic matter, and reduces greenhouse gasses, especially CO2.
Healthy for communities.
Small family farms provide jobs and strong economies in rural communities and create sustainable businesses for succeeding generations.
Grass feed beef is a leaner beef. Tender and delicious in every bite. Our beef is dry aged for 21 days. This extra process enhances the beef. As the dry aging occurs the beef's natural enzymes break down the connective tissue in the muscle, which leads to more tender beef. Then, moisture is evaporated from the muscle and the resulting desiccation process creates a greater concentration of beef flavor and taste. This process is not typically done to most supermarket meats. It is expensive, requires more time, and reduces the final weight of the meat, but as your grandfather always told you, “You get what you pay for”.
