Grass fed, grass finished means that our beef has only ever lived on open, grazing pasture and are supplemented only with cut hay (dried grass). With our mild winters, our cattle can freely graze year-round. All beef cattle eat grass for most of their lives, then most cattle are finished on grain. Grass fed cattle develop at a slower, more natural rate with active muscles, a wider variety of nutrients, fuller flavor, and an even distribution of intramuscular fat (marbling).
About our Grass Fed Beef:
What does grass fed, grass finished mean?
You don’t use hormones or antibiotics? What if an animal gets sick?
Wild Earth uses no artificial hormones and no antibiotics in our grass fed beef program. If an animal does get sick, we will treat them as necessary and remove them from our beef program,
Does grass fed beef taste different than beef in the grocery store?
Yes! Our beef has a fuller, beefier flavor in part from their grass fed diet, the age of the animal, and the dry aging process. It’s an unforgettable, connective family meal.
Does grass fed beef cook differently than “traditional” beef?
I’ve tried grass fed beef before and didn’t like it.. is yours different?
Ours IS different! Read here about the big flavor difference.
Is your beef very lean?
We work hard to produce a marbled (higher fat) grass fed beef, which can be hard to do! Our house ground beef is 80/20. We've found this blend to have enough fat to cook itself into nice, juicy burgers without having to drain the pan. We also offer a leaner Ground Sirloin at 90/10.
What breed are your cattle?
We raise a Hereford and Brangus cross.
