Health Benefits

Grass fed Beef and Bison is more than just tasty, it is a healthy way to eat. Our animals are raised without hormones, antibiotics, animal by products or grain and are raised on free range pastures without herbicides or pesticides.

Healthy Benefits

1. Lower in total Fat

Cows were designed to eat grass, which means that they process it and maintain a healthy digestive system. Feedlot cattle are finished with a grain and hormones which makes for a quick weight gain and a higher percentage of fat in the tissue. 

Pasture-raised cattle are not given artificial hormones and so are 25% more lean and lower in calories.

2. Higher in beta-carotene


Fresh grasses have a higher beta-carotene content then compared to cereal grains.  Meat from pasture-fed contains a seven-fold higher concentration of beta-carotene than grain-fed animals. Beta-carotenes are precursors of retinol (Vitamin A), a critical fat-soluble vitamin that is important for normal vision, bone growth, reproduction, and cell division. The overall integrity of skin and mucous membranes is maintained by vitamin A, creating a barrier to bacterial and viral infection. In addition, vitamin A is involved in the regulation of immune function by supporting the production and function of white blood cells.

3. Higher in vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol


The meat from the grassfed cattle is four times higher in vitamin E than meat from feedlot cattle and almost twice as high as meat from feedlot cattle that have been given vitamin E supplements.

In humans, vitamin E is linked with a lower risk of heart disease and cancer. This potent antioxidant may also have anti-aging properties.

4. Higher in B-vitamin thiamin and riboflavin


Thiamine, also known as Vitamin B1, helps to maintain the body’s energy supplies, coordinates the activity of nerves and muscles and supports proper heart function. Riboflavin, Vitamin B2, helps protect cells from oxygen damage, supports cellular energy production and helps to maintain the body’s supply of other B vitamins.



5. Higher in minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium


Calcium helps maintain healthy, strong bones; supports the proper functioning of nerves and muscles and helps blood to clot. Magnesium helps to relax nerves and muscles, builds and strengthens bones and keeps the blood circulating smoothly. Potassium helps to maintain the proper electrolyte and acid-base balance in the body and helps lower the risk for high blood pressure.

6.  Higher in total omega-3s


Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats that play an important part in growth and metabolism. They can’t be synthesized by the human body, so they have to come from our diet. Omega 3s reduce inflammation, lower the amount of serum cholesterol and triglycerides, prevent excess clotting and reduce the risk of cancer.

7. Better ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs4.84)


While both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are important individually, they also work in tandem and the ratio is critical. A typical Western diet can be excessively heavy on the Omega 6s – up to a 30:1 ratio – when the ideal is closer to 1:1. While the body requires some Omega 6, an excess can foster cardiovascular disease, cancer, and autoimmune disorders, which are suppressed by Omega 3s. The proper ratio can reduce the risk of those and other chronic illnesses.

8. Higher in conjugated linoleic acid


CLA is another potent weapon in the arsenal against chronic disease. CLA can reduce cancer, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and insulin resistance.

9. Higher in vaccenic acid


Vaccenic acid is a transfat that occurs naturally in ruminant animals, but unlike its synthetically-produced cousins, is important for good health. A recent study5 published in The Journal of Nutrition showed that vaccenic acid protects against atherosclerosis, a contributing factor in cardiovascular disease.

10. Lower in the saturated fats link with heart disease


Saturated fats (cholesterol, triglycerides and low-density lipoproteins – LDL or “bad” cholesterol) all play a significant role in heart disease and stroke.

The choice is clear
