Free-range and grass-fed
Our beef is 100% grass-fed, grass-finished, and pasture-raised.
“Grass-fed” animals live their early lives on pasture, but may have been sent to a feedlot for the last few months of their lives (this part of the rearing process is referred to as “finishing”). In contrast, "100% grass-fed or grass-finished" tells you that the animal lived her entire life on pasture, which is the case with our animals.
In addition, hormones are commonly used to speed up growth in beef production, and their use by the beef industry is associated with significant animal welfare problems.
Higher-welfare beef isn’t only better for cows, it’s better for you. Beef raised on pasture contains more vitamin E, more beta-carotene, and 25 – 50% less fat than intensively-reared beef.
