Grass Finished Beef

Our beef is raised on pasture with no grain, chemical dewormers, growth hormones or insecticides. We do not routinely use antibiotics but prefer to treat our animals with herbal medicine and homeopathy. The cattle are fed free-choice grain free mineral mix, along with unrefined natural mineral salt.

A few weeks after the calves are born, we start rotating the cattle through our pasture paddocks. Every week or two they are turned into a fresh pen. This enables the grass to rest and regrow before the cattle come back and graze it again. We have seen a huge increase in our plant diversity, and the native wildflowers and grasses are coming back in our pastures!

We believe that the less synthetic inputs we have, the healthier the animals will be and ultimately, ourselves.

A common distinction between corn fed, feedlot raised beef and grass fed beef is that grass fed beef is leaner… but that’s not the real, significant difference. Our beef animals are raised on pasture where they live an active life foraging in a natural environment. This is radically different from a feedlot environment, where the animals get very little exercise. The muscle development of these feedlot animals is unnatural and results in a soft, flabby meat with very little taste. The healthy muscle development of our grass fed beef imparts a wonderful taste and texture. It does need slightly different cooking methods to prevent the muscle fibers from contracting too quickly, but the end result is well worth it!

 

Our beef is available to purchase directly from us, or at the Highland Park Farmer’s Market in Hastings, Nebraska through the end of the 2017 season. We can possibly deliver to locations in central Nebraska. Contact us for more details!
