A more humane way to raise cattle
Grassfed beef tastes different from conventional beef raised on grain. It makes sense that the diet of the animal changes the flavor of the meat. In this case, we’re changing the cow’s diet back to what it should be: grass. Cattle are designed to eat grass and here they do it well, helping us create healthier pastures along the way.
The simplest way to describe the flavor of our 100% grassfed beef is that it has character. Our beef actually tastes like real beef, the beef that our parents and grandparents grew up eating. The flavor is earthy and rich, with subtle mineral notes. Grassfed beef is naturally lean, so the marbling we’re used to seeing in conventional beef is less prevalent, although grassfed fat content varies by cut and grind.
Low and slow cooking is the key for buttery, tender grassfed beef. For more tips on cooking grassfed beef, click here.
Our 100% grassfed beef is meat you can trust. When you eat beef from Foxhollow Farm, you know that a package of ground beef comes from one cow with no antibiotics and no hormones. All Foxhollow Farm animals are processed locally at a USDA inspected facility. To learn more about our cows, see our “About the Herd” page.
