Your local sustainable beef farm alternative
We are a family affair.
Sustainable Livestock Husbandry
Truly sustainable livestock farming requires the use of a pasture-based system. Pasture-raised animals roam freely in their natural environment where they're able to eat grass and other plants that their bodies are adapted to digest. In addition to dramatically improving the welfare of farm animals, pasturing also helps reduce environmental damage, and yields meat, eggs, and dairy products that are tastier and more nutritious than foods produced on factory farms.
We will continue to have limited shares available as we grow our organic and regenerative pastures.
Our Grass Fed & Grass Finished Beef
We only offer grass fed and finished beef which follow the American Grass Fed Beef Standards. IE:
Diet — Animals are fed only grass and forage from weaning until harvest.
Confinement — Animals are raised on pasture without confinement to feedlots.
Antibiotics and hormones — Animals are never treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.
Regenerative agriculture is a holistic land management practice that leverages the power of photosynthesis in plants to close the carbon cycle, and build soil health, crop resilience and nutrient density. This 2020 year will see our continuation of building our soils thru renovation of our pastures, conversion of row crop fields to grasses, maturity of our grass diversity and rotational grazing practices, One small step toward carbon sequestration.
Impact of climate change on farmers.
We grow grasses and legumes which in turn grow nutritious and healthy cattle.
Cooking Grass Fed & Finished Beef
Grass fed and finished beef is by its very nature lower in fat. Commercially raised beef tends to have more fat and more moisture than grass fed. Thus we need to cook our grass fed beef a little differently. Grass fed beef will have a more intense flavor which may be singular to our grasses because of the lower moisture content. With a lower fat and moisture content in mind you will need less cooking time and a different mindset on temperatures when cooking.
Our family did a blind taste test on steaks from your farm and a competitor. Yours was hands down the best. The flavor was outstanding. From Alexis V. 11-12-2020
