We raise our beef cattle during the summer outside, in the fresh air and sunshine on nothing but the best food source for them - 100% grass! And since they're outside in a good, clean environment for living, they are very healthy animals, thus never needing antibiotics. Our cattle are never given any synthetic hormones and steroids.

Both Omega-3 and Omega-6 are essential fatty acids and a proper balance of these is needed for maintaining good health. Omega-6 is known to help with blood clotting, which is important if you receive a cut or serious injury. Omega-3 on the other hand is important for blood thinning. A proper balance of these two ensures that you will neither bleed to death nor have a heart attack or stroke from clogged arteries. Unfortunately, American’s at large have diets too high in Omega-6 and lacking greatly in Omega-3. Cattle raised on grain are higher in Omega-6, taking it from a healthy to unhealthy balance and raising the risk of heart attacks or strokes in human consumers. Grass is rich in Omega-3 and Beef raised on grass have shown to have a healthy balance between the two essential fatty acids, giving you a more rounded diet.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect against damage caused by free radicals. Free radical build up can lead to cardiovascular disease, cancer and inflammatory conditions.

Our farm is located in historic, scenic Lancaster County – one of the most fertile counties in the United States. We have been operating on a full-time basis since spring of 2008. From the beginning, we've been dedicated to never using chemical sprays or fertilizers, choosing rather to follow all-natural (organic) methods of growing our produce and beef. This not only means avoiding the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers, but it means we also look for ways to manage and nourish the soil and plants so that the food we produce is much more nutritious and healthy. Although natural management is more time consuming and work intensive we believe that it is far better in the long run for everyone – the consumer, farmer, animals, and environment.
