When looking to purchase high-end, nutrient-dense meat it is vital to look for a product that is both grass-fed and finished. This means that the animal is fed only grass their entire life. In many scenarios, especially when advertised as grass-fed, the cattle have access to grass but may be supplemented with corn or other grains throughout their life.
The product that is sold to a customer will never have antibiotics. With that being said, we see value in antibiotic use when needed. Animals that may need to be treated for various reasons throughout their life will not be sold to our clientele. However, our own family and some friends are more than willing to consume the meat because they know we use responsible, necessary exercises in regard to antibiotics.
No. We do not use hormones for any reason with our cattle.
Yes, we do vaccinate some of our cattle. When purchasing calves or bringing new stock into our herd, we feel vaccinations are important to maintain the health of the herd. In most cases this is a one-time injection upon their arrival, but once their immune system is in sync with our environment the vaccinations are not necessary.
We raise Red Angus cattle. We have picked this breed for a number of different reasons. Red Angus are very docile. We are very fond of this, because many days our entire family is involved in caring for them. It’s nice to hang out with a cow who likes to be pet. Our cattle come from Montana and have been bred to process grass and turn it into top quality beef in an efficient manner. They are small in stature and produce calves who flourish with only their mother’s milk and fresh grass.
Yes! Grass-fed and finished beef has 30-40% less total fat than conventionally raised beef. Our beef contains greater levels of Omega 3 Fatty Acid, Beta-carotene, Vitamin E, and Conjugated Linoleic Acid than conventionally raised beef.
Our approach is far different than many ‘big beef’ producers out there. We take pride in involving our family in the process of raising our animals from calves to harvest. Our pastures are located in Gilman, WI – we follow regenerative guidelines to ensure that our beef is nutrient-dense, and the land is left in better condition than it was when we set foot on it. Growing up on a conventional farm, we have experienced first-hand the negative effects of a mono-culture environment.
Water quality is decreasing, carbon emissions are increasing, and topsoil is rapidly vanishing. By adaptive grazing cattle we are allowing the soil and plants to be disrupted, but then giving it the proper time to rest and heal. Much like when you exercise, you stress your body, then give it time to heal and rest, improving your overall health. Healthy soil can infiltrate and store more water, increasing drought resistance while reducing erosion and run-off. This healthy soil also grows nutrient-dense plants that feed our cattle creating a vitamin and mineral-rich protein. We don’t usually think about what goes on beneath our feet, but the soil is alive, which can be easily represented by the abundance of bugs, birds, butterflies, bees, healthy livestock, and farmers who are enjoying the way in which their work is affecting generations to come.
Absolutely! Because our meat is naturally leaner, it is necessary to reduce the cooking temperature to a medium setting and reduce the cooking time by nearly 30%. Grass-fed & finished beef should not be overcooked and PLEASE do not thaw using a microwave! For best results, allow the meat to thaw naturally and cook rare to medium-rare.
NOTHING artificial is added to our meat. Aside from our sausage, you are just simply getting the meat. Our sausage has seasoning added, but absolutely no artificial nitrates or preservatives, we promise.
We have our beef processed at Conrath Quality Meats in Conrath, WI. They do a beautiful job from start to finish. Oftentimes, we have customers concerned that they did not receive all of their meat because they have so few boxes. We promise, you aren’t being shorted – Conrath Quality Meats does such a great job packaging and boxing it that it greatly reduces the amount of room needed in your freezer.
We aren’t. We do see value in the USDA Organic Certification – especially when you are shopping at a grocery store. However, in a situation where the customer is able to have a conversation with their farmer about their practices it isn’t necessary. We encourage our clientele to know your cattle producer, know your gardener, and take the time to have a conversation. We have a 100% transparent policy on our farm. If you want to see how your beef is being raised, we would be THRILLED to show you. Sure, not all aspects of farming are pretty – but we are real and would love for our clientele to know the real-life, nitty-gritty work of producing top-quality, premium meat.
Sure, all cattle eat grass at some time during their life. However, in the United States, the reality of conventional farming the animal is confined to a feed lot at least one third of their life if not, their entire life. It is simply inarguable to say that cattle raised in their natural environment, allowed to roam freely while creating a more sustainable environment is more humane.
Our beef costs more than industrial beef because it costs us more to produce it. We don’t use hormones, confinement lots, or high carbohydrate feeds. These tools are used to reduce costs and we don’t use them.
Yes. These options are available. Send us an e-mail for more information or make a deposit to reserve your share in our online store.
We do not used GMOs on our farm.
In many cases a family of two will need a quarter beef to get them through the year. Families of four to six will need at least half for one year.
Half a beef should fit into a seven cubic foot freezer, if the meat stays in its boxes from the butcher as they package it very well. However, if sausage, bones, or offal is also purchased then a ten cubic foot freezer might be necessary.
You didn’t have ours. The genetics we use are bred and designed to flourish in our Midwest environment. These cattle are calm, low-input animals that are extremely feed-efficient. This means they don’t require outside supplementation from grain or hormones to gain weight. Spring Cut Cattle turn less grass into more meat – resulting in a tender, well-marbled, nutrient-dense end product.
