What is Grass Fed & Finished Beef,

Ensure your food security by supporting local farms
Flavor unmatched by grain fed counterparts
Before large confined animal operations came into being, when most folks' beef was raised on a small farm and sold at the local butcher, all beef was fed on a mostly grass and dried hay diet, with little grains at all. Most meats now are raised in large commercial confinement facilities and shipped to your grocery store, big box/warehouse stores, and nationwide home meal delivery boxes.
This system requires the animals to be penned in a lot and fed large amounts of grains (and additives, and antibiotics) to gain weight. Those animals don't get the freedom to graze freely and seasonally on fresh grasses and forbs, and are much more prone to illness and disease.
Our animals are born on our farm, on pasture. They nurse from their mothers and gradually begin to eat grass and dried hay before they are mature enough to be weaned. We keep our cattle on fresh grass throughout their lives and supplement in the winter with dried hay and grass forage. We wait until they are mature and ready before processing, which can take twice as long as their grain fed counterparts, but we believe this low stress healthy life is more aligned with nature, produces a higher quality product that is worth the extra time and effort, for the health of the animal, the land and the people we feed.
Grass fed beef is:
Higher in Omega 3s than grainfed counterparts
Excellent and best absorbed source of iron
Lower in calories and saturated fat than grainfed.
High in vitamins E and A
Rich in taste and in protein
