There are many reasons why people are turning to grass fed beef. Typically, grass fed beef is cut-for-cut a more tender product. This is due to the way in which the beef is raised, grazing free in a field at will from morning til night. Additionally, as the animals have their diet focused on green plants, this allows for health benefits to be passed on to the consumer, including:
o Higher Omega 3 content. (Omega 3 lessens risks of high blood pressure, cancer and cardiac problems)
o Higher Vitamin A levels
o More conjugated linoleic acid. (An anti-carcinogenic, which reduces body fat, helps prevent diabetes and heart disease, and is only created in ruminant animals)
o Lower in Calories
o Lower in Cholesterol
o Up to 50% less Saturated Fat
o Higher Protein content
Finally, our Grass Fed Beef is raised locally, at the Taylor Family Farm, allowing for a smaller environmental footprint, and creating less transportation stress in the animals.
Grass Finished Beef
As with our non GMO grain finished beef , we purchase local heifers through Keady Livestock Mkt from local farmers for our grass finished program.
Our philosophy to raising Grass Finished Beef is that our heifers receive only grass for the time period on pasture. As early as the spring grass will support grazing, heifers are turned out to fill up on fresh growth daily. Cattle will graze at will generally 8-10 times throughout the day, resting in between to digest and produce meat. Fresh water is supplied to the paddock locations for easy access at all times. Free choice kelp meal provides trace mineral supplementation.
Animals are moved to fresh pastures regularly to take advantage of new growth clovers and variety of grasses that provide a salad bar choice of greens and the most natural production of beef we can provide to you.
Our beef has a natural rail hanging time of 14 days when it is prepared for counter sales or packaged in approx. 40 lb boxes for your freezer. Ask for more information.
Grass finished beef is a high protein , low cholesterol meat, highGrass in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, and low in carbohydrates. Many health officials recommend Grass Finished Beef as an excellent part of a healthy diet.
