With our background in organic dairy farming and organic row crop farming, we are pleased to produce quality grass finished beef. We truly enjoy seeing the happy cattle grazing away on the hillsides of our beautiful ranch. We strive to have well managed pastures in order to produce a high quality product for our consumers.
What the animal eats is important. The diet of the animal is directly related to the nutrients and fats you receive. According to a study from Mayo Clinic, when compared with other types of beef, grass-fed beef may have some heart-health benefits. Grass-finished beef is higher in key nutrients and may have:
*More heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are in their meat because they're eating grasses, and clover, rich in these heart-healthy fatty acids.
*More conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a type of fat that's thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks. CLA has also been tied to improved immunity and anti-inflammation benefits.
*More antioxidants, and vitamins.
Typically it takes 24 - 26 months from the time of birth until an animal is ready to be the source of food on your table.
