Our beef is pasture raised grass fed and finished, which means their diet consists almost completely of natural herbicide free grass & hay.* Our cattle graze on beautiful rolling hills far from industrial pollution during the spring, summer and autumn months. During the winter months, they eat high quality hay. Grass fed beef is usually much leaner than cattle that are entirely grain fed and somewhat smaller than conventional cattle. But this type of beef offers superior taste. (To understand the distinctions between grass fed versus grain fed see below.)
* Note: Grass fed and grass finished beef may contain up to 5% of grains in their diet which usually consists of oats, wheat barley, a mix of peas, soybeans and corn – all of these grains are non GMO.
Our beef farmer has been raising cattle for generations, from grandparents, to parents, to children to grandchildren. They combine old practices and family secrets with modern practices, cutting edge technology and higher education which agricultural university programs offer. They teach other farmers how to ameliorate their soils, how to grow better grass and hay, how to grow livestock and they are active supporters of sustainable agriculture.
The quality and the taste of our beef has been highly praised.
