There’s nothing like 100 percent grass fed and finished beef – for your tastebuds, for your health, and for the environment. Not only is raising cattle on open grassland where they can graze on their ideal food the most humane way to produce beef, it’s also the most responsible way for the integrity of farmlands.
Nature didn’t design cows to eat grains. Cattle are ruminants with four stomachs designed to convert grass and forage into meat and milk. Their unique digestive system is not equipped to handle grains, especially the genetically modified corn routinely fed to factory-farmed cows.
Grass fed beef abounds, but don’t be misled… The FDA’s definition of grass fed only requires farmers to ensure their animals have access to the outdoors during the grass growing season, as short as 6 months in many areas. Feedlot confinement with grains is the “norm” during the remainder of the year. And under this program, grass fed farmers are allowed to feed a grain supplement and routinely use antibiotics and growth hormones!
It’s also important to note that of the few suppliers that do offer true 100% grass fed beef, they usually ship from Australia. Why pay for all of that shipping, and also contribute to the use of additional resources to ship beef from afar, when there is a better option right here in the United States?
Thousand Hills 100% Grass Fed and Finished Beef is different. Compared to regular supermarket beef and even other grass fed beef, Thousand Hills cattle are:
“Lifetime grazed” rather than confined for their entire lives, or part of their lives
Never fed grain or grain byproducts, including GMO corn
Raised and processed in the USA, supporting US Grass Farmers
Holistically and humanely raised by independent Midwestern family farmers
Never given antibiotics, artificial hormones, or muscle-relaxing beta-agonists
Free to roam and graze on pastures never treated with herbicides
Humanely processed at Lorentz Meats, a family-owned, morally-centered processing facility in the US (Minnesota)
Since 2003, Thousand Hills has been raising cattle on holistically-managed pastures. Expert staff personally inspect all cattle to ensure their health. All of their cattle are born, raised, and harvested in the USA. Local processing is done at a spotless family-run facility in small batches, with stringent, proactive food safety testing. It’s important to note that the cattle are humanely processed, unlike many other facilities where very inhumane and unsanitary practices are taking place.
Better for you and the environment, too. Compared to other beef, true 100% grass fed beef is high in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, with a better ratio to omega-6 fatty acids (making it much better for your health). It’s also a good source of health-promoting conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), an important nutrient not found in regular beef. And grass fed beef is lower in saturated fats and cholesterol.
When cattle are raised the responsible way – natural grazing in open spaces without herbicides and petrochemicals – soils regenerate, erosion and runoff are reduced, grassland diversifies, and wildlife, such as birds and bees thrive. You’re making a powerful statement for the environment when you choose 100% grass fed and finished beef.
Of course, true 100% grass fed and finished beef costs a little more. It takes longer to produce and requires responsible, individual management by experts. There’s no question it’s worth it for your dining pleasure, your health, and the environment. And with Thousand Hills 100% Grass Fed Beef, you’re assured of consistent high quality and healthful lean protein.
