Why Grass-Fed Beef?

Grass-Fed Beef in Whatcom County
First things first, grass-fed beef is better for you.   And did you know, we raise, Grass-Fed Beef in Whatcom County.

It’s much leaner than its conventional counterpart. It’s also higher in key nutrients, including antioxidants, vitamins, and a beneficial fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) that’s been tied to improved immunity and anti-inflammation benefits.

Truly natural grass-fed beef means the cattle are fed entirely on their mother’s milk and grass from birth to harvest. As a result, these cows have an average pH seven balance in their system, contributing to a healthy fat balance of omega-3s, omega-6s, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). In short, if the cow is healthier, its meat is more nutritious, and you’ll be more beneficial.

These physical qualities, such as fat distribution, have translated to premium beef known for superior marbling and melt-in-your-mouth flavor.

What is marbling? 

Marbling is the visible form of intramuscular fat which appears as striking white/cream flecks within the red muscle. Extensive marbling gives Wagyu beef a spectacular tenderness, juiciness, and buttery flavor. The final benefit is flavor: our grass pastures make for sweet, flavorful fat and a tender burger.
