Grass fed animal products have been shown to be higher in beta carotene (Vitamin A), conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and Omega-3 fatty acids, which are important in reducing cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and other life threatening diseases. These products are lower in fat, cholesterol and calories. In addition, the risk by E. coli in these products are virtually eliminated.
Grass fed systems are better for the animals as they are raised only on pasture, out in the open. They live longer and produce longer due to more natural, less stressful, conditions.
Healthy pastures reduce soil erosion, while improving air and water quality and build soil organic matter. They also provide habitat and forage for wildlife.
The animals grow slowly and naturally which means they are full of flavor and delicious. We also use traditional livestock breeds which ensure a good “marbling” of the meat.
Grass fed systems are good for the environment – less road and air transport, less packaging, less waste. It keeps money in your local area, creating jobs and businesses locally, and giving farmers a bigger cut of the price tag you pay. It’s good for your community – creating links between people in urban areas and the countryside. Local food for local people.
