Grass-fed beef is better for human health than grain-fed beef in ten different ways,.
According to a 2009 study that was a joint effort between the USDA and researchers at Clemson University, compared with grainfed beef, grass-fed beef was:
• Lower in total fat
• Higher in beta-carotene
• Higher in vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
• Higher in the B-vitamins thiamin and riboflavin
• Higher in the minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium
• Higher in total omega-3s
• Healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs. 4.84)
• Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter
• Higher in vaccenic acid (which can be transformed into CLA)
• Lower in the saturated fats linked with heart disease
Stream Fed Trout
The icy cold water from crystal clear springs that fill our trout ponds provide the ideal environment for the production of healthy fish.
The trout we offer are fed a high protein feed made with all natural ingredients resulting in hearty, great tasting fish.
Free Range Poultry
USDA generally permits the term Free Range to be used if poultry have access to the outdoors for at least some part of the day. Less than 1% of chickens nationwide are raised as “free range,” according to the National Chicken Council (NCC).
A 2003 study by Penn State University researchers found that eggs from pastured hens have higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins A and E.
We only offer poultry and eggs from trusted sources so you know the chickens geese or ducks ranged freely. enjoying a 100% organic diet without the use of animal by-products or unnecessary antibiotics. (And for those who are curious, organic feed does not contain any GMOs.)
The common method of raising pigs is as simple as allowing the hogs to graze in the open range farms and pastures to use the natural ventilation provided by the atmosphere and the sun in providing the best environment for the pigs.
In hog raising following the principles of organic farming, pigs are tolerated to graze plants, grass and even herbs as their food. Allowing themselves to graze in the fields can be a perfect exercise in keeping them leaner and healthier.
