Our small farm in Western Pennsylvania is home to a happy herd of old-fashioned cattle
When was the last time you had a hauntingly memorable steak?
I’m talking beefier beef so flavorful & rich, so tender & juicy, rubs, marinades & sauces would be criminal. You’d like to have some of that wouldn’t you?
If you’ve been so lucky to have tasted that mythic, elusive Loch Ness Monster of steaks, I’ll bet you remember where you were, who you were with and every other detail about that meal. Great steak can do that to you.
Why is a steak like that such a rarity? There’s no shortage of cows, that’s for sure. What makes one steak so-so and another sublime?
Well, lots of things actually. How long the calves stayed with their mothers, the quality of soil & pastures the cows grazed, what the cows ate, how stress-free their lives were, and how the meat was handled after processing. And, very important, how old the cows were and what breed.
You see, some cows just aren’t going to make great steaks no matter how much they’re coddled or what they’re fed. The secret’s out: grass-fed beef tastes best. The tricky part is that grass-fed beef can also be the worst.
Did you know old-fashioned, un-“improved” British breeds of cattle make the best grass-fed beef? It’s true. And cows don’t come any more old-fashioned or British than ours.
Isn’t it great when you can enjoy your beef and know the cow never saw a feed lot or auction barn and enjoyed happy, stress-free days grazing spacious pastures with calf-hood friends?
Our cows eat all the grass they want, mostly grown right here at home. We don’t use pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, artificial growth hormones or needless antibiotics. We let our slow-growing steer take their sweet time developing naturally into well muscled, fully fattened, beautifully finished beef.
We are small, and plan to stay that way. We will only keep as many cows as our land can support without artificial inputs. That makes our beef a limited yearly treat. When it’s gone, it’s gone until next year. Want to know more about our beef? Check out our Beef FAQS here.
