  Today, many people have concerns about how our food is grown and processed. Some are concerned about human health

and the impact of eating foods that contain chemical growth promotants, hormones, antibiotics, herbicides and pesticides. For beef consumers, BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy), also known as “Mad Cow Disease,”  may be a worry. Others are concerned about the environment and the impact of raising large numbers of animals in small areas, a practice which requires trucking in vast quantities of feed produced elsewhere while also creating a waste management problem. Still others are concerned about the wellbeing of animals raised in cramped, factory-style settings. Our method of raising cattle addresses all of these concerns.

   Our animals are raised on a natural diet of grasses and legumes which are never sprayed with herbicides or pesticides.

    They are rotated through a series of pastures every two to four days, giving them constant access to a fresh “salad bar”. Their pasture is only supplemented with sea kelp, trace mineral salt mined from an ancient sea bed, and food-grade minerals; they receive no growth promotants, hormones, or antibiotics. This system of grass-finishing allows cattle to develop as nature intended. Cattle, being ruminant animals, have tremendous capacity for digesting forages; they are not designed to take in large quantities of grain— particularly genetically manipulated grain.

 

We strive to maintain a stress-free environment for cattle and handlers, which helps to ensure meat tenderness. Our aim is to produce, in an environmentally and ecologically sound manner, a tasty and tender beef which will actually enhance the health of humans and our planet.
