Why Grass?

Three big reasons to buy & eat grass-fed beef & lamb

1.  Better for You: Healthier, safer, tastier, more nutritious

  • No antibiotics, growth hormones, steroids, pink slime or other fillers and additives
  • Lower in calories, cholesterol & saturated fats
  • Higher in beta-carotene, Vitamins E, A & B-vitamins (thiamine and riboflavin).
  • Higher in minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium
  • Higher in heart-healthy Omega 3 and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid)
  • Significantly lower risk of E. coli; no risk of mad cow disease

2.  Better for the Cows

  • Grass is what God intended cows to eat!  Their stomachs weren’t made to digest grain
  • Our animals are never in a CAFO (confined animal feed operation) where they are administered antibiotics and other drugs, fed questionable feeds, and crammed into confined, manure-filled paddocks
  • Our animals enjoy green grass, clean water, fresh air, no stress – resulting in healthier, gentler animals

3.  Better for the Earth

  • Our pastures are fed nature’s fertilizer, manure; no chemicals damage our soils & waters
  • There’s no “waste management problem” with grass-fed beef and lamb; in fact, “cow pies” are like dessert for the chickens & dung beetles
  • Less water pollution & greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improved soil fertility & native biodiversity
  • Well managed and maintained native grasslands store significant amounts of atmospheric carbon
  • We use no fossil fuels to ship animals to western feedlots out, then to massive packing plants in the Mid-west, then to grocery stores all over the country
