Update on the grass-fed steers we will be providing you fall 2015 (Report 1). Remember our “grass-fed” beef is also known as “pasture grazed” beef. The term grass-fed is pretty well-known, but we also refer to our beef as “pasture grazed”. Why pasture grazed?
- Cattle pictured below have lived their entire lives on pasture, never confined to a feed lot.
- During the non growing season our cattle are on stockpiled pasture, never confined to dirt lots.
- Yes these cattle are 100% grass-fed, never fed corn, any other grain or grain by products.
- Our pastures contain diverse covers of grass, forbs, shrubs and trees.
- Cattle choose the diet they need, want or crave.
- Diversity is important, more than just “grass”-fed.

WARNING – Flavor comes from two primary sources, diet and age of animal. These steers will be harvested the first of October, around 28 months of age. The flavor should be pronounced! The beef from these steers will have a flavor unique to our farm. Please contact us if you have any questions.
