Grass Fed Beef and Lamb

What we feed animals has a major effect on the nutrient composition of the meat.

Grass-fed beef and lamb have less fat when compared to meat produced from grain-fed animals. The meat has less fat cover, less marbling and is leaner. Grass feed beef and lamb are generally considered to be more flavoursome.

Beef and lamb are a good source of iron for energy, protein for strength and zinc for brainpower! Beef and lamb also have other nutrients including omega-3, vitamin B12, niacin, riboflavin and vitamin B6 and phosphorous.  Grass fed beef has a higher level of beneficial Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids than grain fed beef.

Our grass feed cows and sheep receive fresh water, shade trees to shelter under and keep cool and natural pastures to graze on.
