Our grass-fed beef is full of healthy fats and B vitamins – nutritionally superior to grain-fed beef.  You will taste amazing flavor resulting from long period grazing high-diversity pasture.  Our rotational methods build healthy soil and maintain different types of grasses and weeds that flourish long into the summer and pull up minerals from deep down in the soil.  Water infiltration and storage capacity are increased on fields that NEVER require application of herbicides or pesticides.

Your advance deposit for your 1/4 or 1/2 beef help us keep a stock of premium animals grazing at different weights so we always have some coming up to target weight.

WE BUY YEARLINGS

Our personally selected cross-bred Devon / Angus / Hereford yearling cattle (600-700 pounds) come from known source herds and are pastured with one of our rotational grazing partners in healthy, calm, low-stress environment for up to one year until he/she reaches 1100-1200 lb. market weight.  Heritage breeding enables our animals to fatten on grass where they gain healthy fat & moist internal marbling.

Up to 12 Months of GRAZING

WE pay for hauling from source herd and for a year of rotational contract grazing on top-quality summer pasture, winter hay and protection from the elements & animal maintenance with NO antibiotics or growth hormones.  Animals may get a small amount of supplemental grain during winter months.
