Grass FINISHED Beef
"This place is the real deal. If you've been buying "grass-fed" beef from the store, check this place out. These are what true, humanely raised and pastured animals should look like" Jen B
"I just want to let you know how much we are enjoying our beef from your farm. We'll never get it anywhere else!" Maria S
Cattle are designed to eat grass. Period. The widespread practice of feeding cattle a grain diet is a common practice in a factory food production system and we are beginning to witness the human health and ecological toll it is taking.
More people are becoming aware of these facts, and as a result, are shifting their purchasing decisions toward grass fed beef. As more customers desire this type of product, more stores are attempting to advertise the availability of grass fed beef. Some exceptions exist, but most beef sold in stores that is advertised as “grass fed” is actually finished on grain. This usually means that the cattle are fed grain for 30-45 days prior to processing. This grain finishing changes the entire nutritional benefits of the beef. There is currently no regulation in place for the public to know if their so-called grass-fed beef is actually grain-finished.
Our grass-fed beef is more appropriately called “grass finished” beef. The cattle at ZOE Farms move to fresh, lush, nutrient-dense pasture every day. This management intensive grazing system ensures that our cattle are in peak health at the time of processing without the use of antibiotics, hormones or grain.
We only harvest beef twice per year - mid-summer and fall. These harvest times coincide with the natural cycle of peak grass growth and nutrient richness. By limiting our harvest to only these times, our cattle marble a very tasty fat high in omega-3's.
A wide variety of our beef steaks, roasts and burger are available year-round at The Caboose. Bulk discounted beef is sold as halves and wholes in mid-summer and late fall. Reservations for June 2017 are currently filled. We are accepting deposits for October/November 2017 reservations. Email email@example.com for more information.
