I was contacted the other day from someone asking what we meant when we advertise that our meat is “naturally raised”.
What we mean by this is that our beef is all natural. No additives, no steroids or growth hormones and no antibiotics are ever given to our cattle. The only exception to that would be if one of our cows or calves were to get sick, then of course we would treat them with an antibiotic, or whatever the vet would suggest.
However, if something would happen to one of our calves that were on the list to be harvested, they would be promptly removed.
Another definition of naturally raised is probably what you would think of when you hear that term. It is natural for cattle to graze on green pasture, or be supplemented with hay during the times of the year when grass is not available (winter). It is natural for cattle to drink fresh water that has not been chemically treated. It is natural for cattle to forage for other foods, such as corn, husks, wheat, hulls, and other grains.

Our cattle are about as “naturally raised” as you can get. During three seasons of the year, spring/summer/fall, they move from pasture to pasture munching on green, tender, tasty grasses; drink water out of creeks and waterers, that we abundantly provide; laze under shade trees lining the fields; and in late summer they get their belly’s filled with sweet treats from the pears that drop into the field next to our house.
Maybe those pears are the reason our beef tastes so good! J
If you would like to order freezer beef from us, you can be assured that we practice sustainable farming methods, and all of our beef are naturally born and naturally raised right here on our family farm. Naturally!
