A GreenFed diet is ideal to create health for ruminant animals such as cows, goats and sheep. Beyond Organic cows are raised on pastures that are pesticide, herbicide and chemical fertilizer free. They consume grass and other forage such as forbs, legumes, and herbs. When consuming GreenFed beef and dairy you can be sure you are getting the proper balance of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids. Beyond Organic’s GreenFed meat and dairy products are loaded with probiotics, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids and CLA.
Beyond organic introduces 100% Green-Fed beef. Biblically slaughtered with kosher standards, raised in a Beyond Organic fashion, animal kindness with old world processing. These beef products can be consumed multiple times a week and enjoyed by you and your family.
The beef will be one of the products that will be somewhat seasonal (As well as the cheese). There will be some steaks and roasts, but it will be more ground beef and beef hot dogs than steaks because the steaks will go so quickly when they are available. (The website will post the products that are available on a daily basis, so everyone has the same chance to get what is available when it comes up.)
The beef will retail for $10 a lb, or a preffered price of $8 a lb for ground beef or for a 12 oz package of hot dogs.
There is a lot of trust that goes into food shopping. Think of the thousands of products that line the shelves of your local supermarket. How much do you actually know about how they are made? Chances are, you know next to nothing. Instead, you either trust that the food provider has your best interest in mind, or, more realistically, ignore any warning signals hat may be going off in your head.
Our promise to you is simple. We will provide you with an unprecedented level of transparency and visibility into how your food is produced. We have put together an exhaustive Ten Point set of standards (see article on page 14) that ensure that our beef is of exceptional quality. We do this for several reasons.
First off, we know that this is the way to raise the healthiest cattle possible. Feeding cattle what they were meant to eat—greens instead of grains, allowing them to roam freely versus confining them to close quarters, and letting them grow at their own pace rather than fattening them on unnatural, GMO grain, are all healthier practices for the cow.
Healthy cows also mean healthy beef. GreenFinished beef has a healthy ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats, and contains CLA, a nutrient that is gaining recognition in scientific circles for its many benefits. It even has vitamins B-6 and B-12.
Pastured, GreenFinished cows also represent a more sustainable choice for the environment. Our cattle eat what naturally grows on our land. That land is never sprayed with chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. We believe that our cattle are only as healthy as our land, and we believe that sustainable farming is the surest path to keeping our land pristine.
To sum up: Healthy cows that are raised humanely. Healthy beef that is so very different than conventional beef. A healthier environment. This is what you are voting for when you choose Beyond Organic’s GreenFinished Beef.
This begs the question: Why, if cattle finished this way is historically and scientifically more correct, are more people not doing it?
