Grass Fed Beef
Grass Fed Beef is Better … for Everyone
..and everything. A well-managed herd of cattle actually promotes life in our soils and farm environment. Grass needs to be eaten!! If not grazed it will actually die and oxide – contributing to greenhouse gasses and degrading soil life. By not using ANY sprays, chemical plunge dips ( yep – dunk the whole cow in a pool of toxins!!) or internal parasite drenches, we actively foster biologically active soils.
We do this because we believe that this is the way it should be – mimicking Mother Nature. Essentially growing cattle this is better. Better for our environment, better for our animals, better for our customers and better for us – the farmers.
Is Grass Fed Beef good for you?
Read on and then decide.
- Grown without chemicals or grain, naff as it sounds – this beef is grass, sunlight & rain in a bag!
- Our beef contains a raft of goods fat and nutrients not available from plant-based sources in the same density, but – many of these disappear when cattle are grain fed.
- Some of the benefits of grass-fed beef include :- higher levels healthy omega-3 fats, more vitamins A and E, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin b6, magnesium, and up to seven times more beta-carotene.
- You are supporting the production of a higher-quality product in a way that is not detrimental to the environment, animal or consumer.
- And it tastes great!!
Why are Grass Fed cattle better?
Cattle are a grazing animal.
They are designed to consume grasses and weeds browse shrubs and trees and to move. Our regenerative approach to farming means we are meeting all the needs of the cow. She is always in a mob of familiar faces. She is regularly provided with a fresh array of plants to consume. And when she is ready, there’s always a shady tree for resting under.
Every aspect of the cow is beneficial when she is grown on grass and moved often. The grasses grow better. The soil life magnifies. The insect life increases. There is more food for birds. The positive influences just go on and on when there is adequate management to provide the cow with the very thing she was built for – grass grazing.
Are cows bad for the environment?
In fact they are hugely important. Our planet evolved with herbivores doing their vital job of cycling all that plant material to generate even more growth.
Our cattle are raised only using ‘Green Water’ (natural rainfall). With careful management, we have no need to irrigate fodder crops to grow nutritious food. Unlike the ‘plant-based’ substitutes which require vast areas of monoculture crops (often irrigated) to produce the base material which is then processed and altered to render it fit for human consumption.
Better for the Farmer
Growing this way means NEVER having to navigate the complexity of chemical application – so WAY better for the farmers.
Also, buying beef directly from farmers is reminiscent of the way many of our parents or grandparents purchased their meat and veges – from people they knew! Thanks to the internet you are able to research and get to know farmers just like us.
We work hard work to produce organic quality cattle and selling direct gives us a slight premium, but also the immense satisfaction of knowing people value and appreciate what we produce.
