How Can I Find Premium Grass Fed Beef?
Raising premium grass fed beef requires much more than simply restricting grain from cattle's feed- it also involves a system of providing plenty of open space for pasturing and eliminating antibiotics and growth hormones from the diet. Churchill Reserve has spent years perfecting the process- and you'll notice the difference from the very first bite.
What Does Grass Fed Mean?
Most cattle farms do as little as possible to meet the standards set forth by the USDA for grass fed beef requirements- simply eliminating grain and feeding cattle grass meets the code. At Churchill Reserve, we believe quality and taste come from raising cattle that are well cared for, given a nurturing environment, and the right kind of grazing for optimum health. You won't find better grass fed beef anywhere.
Is Premium Grass Fed Beef Better For You?
Sub-standard grass fed beef has been proven healthier, providing a higher amount of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, more antioxidants, and better taste. Unless you purchase from a farm that indicates the complete absence of growth hormones and antibiotics from their cattle's diet, there's really not much difference between grain fed and grass fed beef. Look for the word' premium' when purchasing grass fed beef, and be sure to inquire as to whether the meat you buy is free from hormones & antibiotics.
What Does Marbling Have to do With Tenderness?
With grain fed beef, tenderness is all about marbling, or the meat itself being marbled with fat in order to create a more tender cut. With grass fed beef, you'll find less marbling without sacrificing on tenderness. If you're looking for a way to decrease the amount of animal fat in your diet, you'll find premium grass fed beef to be far more tender than what you'll find in a grocery or meat store. Don't let the lack of marbling keep you from experiencing the most delicate and delicious steak you've ever tasted.
Is Grass Fed Beef More Expensive Than Grain Fed?
Depending on where you shop for beef, you could expect to pay slightly more to much more for grass fed. We recommend buying directly from cattle farmers to get the best deals on premium grass fed beef.
