Shop: Organic, grass-fed beef

January 14th, 2010

From Greensbury Market:

Organic 100% Grass fed Rump Roast

Greensbury Market’s Organic Farms Are Self-Sustaining

Greensbury’s farmers and ranchers not only receive USDA organic certification on their farms, they take organic to a whole new level. Their farms are completely self-sufficient and sustainable.

Most of the feed is grown on the farms. If grain is brought to the ranch, it is organic and used in minimal amounts to supplement the chickens’ and hogs’ diets. Cattle are only fed forage from the ranch.

Greensbury’s farmers and ranchers treat their animals humanely, allowing them to graze freely. They rotate grazing to allow the grass and soil to replenish naturally.

Organic to them means much more than just avoiding synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and unnecessary antibiotics and growth hormones. The meat products produced organically on self-sustaining farms have been called “Beyond Organic.”

A meaty bit of advice

There are lots of reasons to cut your meat consumption. Producing beef is the more resource intensive and energy costly than almost any other type of food production (save maybe extracting gourmet delicacies like caviar) and has a big carbon imprint, contributing to greenhouse gases at many stages.

There are also health reasons to trim the volume of animal products from your diet because meats contribute to high cholesterol, hardening of the arteries and so on.
