Grass Fed Beef

 

Our herd is a mixture of pure bred Red Poll Cattle and Angus or Angus crossed with Red Poll. Calves are sired by a Red Poll bull as we believe that the breed is one of the best suited to grass feeding, needing no grain to finish, and producing a superior product. Red Polls are a heritage breed and are a threatened breed under the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.  For many reasons, we are delighted to have them on our farm. We are also looking to use a Red Devon bull to sire calves in the future, the breed has many similar attributes to the Red Poll and we believe it will give us some excellent calves. Both breeds are superior cattle for grass feeding.

It may seem odd but the best way to help ensure the survival of these lovely cows as a breed is to eat them, without consumers it would not pay to keep them.  So, please order some today and help conserve beautiful breeds of cattle while enjoying delicious beef for your table!

Like pastured eggs and poultry, a grass-fed meat provides beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids.  A grass-fed steak provides twices the Omega-3 fatty acids of a grain-fed steak according to a recent study.  Grass-fed meats are lower in total fat and eating leaner meats actually lowers your "bad" LDL cholesterol.

Our delicious grass fed beef is generally harvested and available from October through November.  This is the best time to harvest for superior beef. We sell split halves, halves, or a full beef. We encourage early ordering to ensure our customers are served in a timely manner and our processors have advance warning of when we intend to bring the animals to them.

We are having our animals processed at Marksbury Farm processors who are USDA certified and specialize in grass-fed beef. We may have some spare beef throughout the year or some ground beef available. Join our mailing list or keep an eye on our web site for details.
