What's The Beef With Sustainably Raised ~ Keto Success ~ Lamb Is King
Sustainably Raised 100% Grassfed Beef, Lamb, Bison, & Dairy Delivered Right To Your Door
What does it mean to be sustainably raised? It's an important concept that effects the soil, water, grazing animals and ultimately the food we eat. Thousands of years ago when buffalo roamed the prairie, nature was able to tend to itself without a lot of interference. Native grasses grew up providing nourishment for grazing animals. The animals naturally fertilized the prairie and soils were built and replenished. Grasses developed deep roots in rich soils populated with healthy micro-organisms, worms, and nutrients. There were no chemical pesticides or herbicides, no growth hormones, or antibiotics.
US Wellness farmers began applying these same principles to the land about 20 years ago and made some amazing discoveries. These grass-fed, grass-finished meats contain higher concentrations of healthy Omega-3's, CLA, branch chain amino acids, vitamins and minerals. While this approach requires additional work, good stewardship, and investment in the land, the results are exceptional; clean, nutrient dense food for your family and a healthier planet for everyone.
In this article, Dr. Mercola discusses the value of regenerative farming. Demand for healthier, whole foods is increasing as more people learn the value of eating healthy. Sustainable farming methods allow farmers to rebuild soils that retain water and nutrients. This is especially important during droughts or in arid parts of world.

Even though grass fed and grain-finished beef sales have grown by 1,500 percent since 2012, according to ABC News, they are still overshadowed by conventional beef sales in the U.S., which topped $105 billion in 2015. While there is a long way to go before grass fed beef will become as popular as its conventional counterpart, the tides are changing as more consumers are demanding higher quality, safer meat products...

Long rest periods have been a drought reliever in Northeast Missouri this year. These animals are finding plenty of energy in this long rested sward. The surplus of above ground growth shades the soil surface helping preserve moisture and keeping soil temperature cooler.
These cattle are waiting patiently for the next paddock move into a new block of forage. The dry matter that their feet have pushed into the soil surface will be food for the below ground soil organisms. The below ground life feeds the plant life above ground.
