All of our beef is truly grass-fed—grass-grown and grass-finished—meaning the cattle are foraging on highly nutritious grasses, legumes, and forbs. It comes from mature animals harvested at peak condition, for great flavor.
All of our beef is:
grass-grown and grass-finished
responsibly raised and handled
raised with bio-regenerative practices
mature at harvest
from great-tasting British breeds
not given sub-therapeutic antibiotics
not given added hormones or steroids
Our practice creates great-tasting, wholesome and responsibly-raised meat.
Our livestock feed on highly nutritious grasses, legumes, and forbs throughout the year, and we bring animals to market when they are mature and fattened during the season when grasses have formed their seeds and are most nutritious. We call this “best-in-season,” and it’s how we create consistently superb beef.
HOLDING GRASS-FED TO A
Cattle marketed as “grass-fed” are allowed to be fed stored grasses (such as hay or grass pellets) during winter months or drought. We agree with the use of hay to supplement grazing during the lean seasons. Unfortunately, this standard allows for cattle raised in overcrowded feedlots and fed harvested, dried grasses to still be called “grass-fed”. We hold ourselves to a higher standard. Our cattle spend their entire lives grazing on grasslands with ample room to roam. We choose to raise cattle exclusively in climates that can support this philosophy.
Animals harvested from different regions based on seasonal grass cycles create genuine, delicious grass-fed beef all year long.
OUR STANCE ON HORMONES AND
ANTIBIOTICS IN BEEF
Approximately 95% of the cattle raised for beef in the US are given growth hormones and/or sub-therapeutic antibiotics, including ionophores. These practices are primarily used on feedlot cattle to stimulate growth in healthy cattle or combat the side-effects of their crowded, unnatural living conditions. Our cattle are never given hormones or sub-therapeutic antibiotics. Instead, we raise our cattle on pasture with high-quality living conditions, reducing the need for any kind of intervention. In the event that an animal is ill, we do support appropriate use of antibiotics—meaning the use of antibiotics to cure an individual sick animal. Antibiotics used this way, rare and judicious therapeutic use, will be completely metabolized in an animal, and we wait a minimum of 100 days for metabolization, well beyond the typical and recommended industry standard of 7 to 30 days.
