Beef
 

After World War II, chemical companies, in need of new markets, focused on U.S. agriculture.  At the same time petrochemicals were widely adopted, resulting in a national surplus of corn.  Federal subsidies have allowed corn to be sold to the beef industry for less than the cost of producing the corn.

Cows and sheep were not created to eat grain.  They are grass eaters.  Their tooth structure and their digestive system would indicate this.  They have difficulty digesting grain because they lack the enzyme to metabolize the starch.

Today's beef cattle spend over 1/2 their lives in crowded feedlots being "finished".  In the feedlots, their grain based diet is supplemented with antibiotics and growth hormones (rBGH) fattening them faster and cheaper than grass finished beef.

The typical feed-lot cow diet is about 95% grain.  This much grain lowers the ph in the rumen requiring antibiotics to prevent liver infections (antibiotics also act as a growth stimulant).

We offer you an alternative to this.

We are pleased to offer grass fed grass-finished beef.  Our beef are grass fed their entire lives.  We are dedicated to producing the most nutritious and delicious foods and meats possible.

Ruminant animal products contain a "good fat" called conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA.  When raise exclusively on grass, their meat and dairy offers 2-5 times more CLA than animals raised on grain.  CLA has strong anti-cancer properties.  There are early indications that CLA may also lower the risk of breast cancer.

Fresh pasture offers hundreds of nutrients that the standard feedlot diet never will.  You can visibly see the difference by looking at the color of the fat.  Feedlot meat fat is stark white, while the fat from grass-fed meat ranges from a creamy color to nearly yellow.

Our beef is generally 28-30 months old when processed and has lived its entire life on grass.  This gives the animal a chance to gain some natural marbling in the meat.
