"When our animals get the nutrition
they deserve, so do you."
One of the first things you'll notice about our beef is that the fat is more yellow. Yellow fat means a higher vitamin A content (which comes from a diet of 100% grass rather than supplementing with corn or other grains).
The same can be said about our pork; our pigs are given freedom to get as much sunshine as they like (in fact, one of their favorite past-times is sunbathing), and store lots of vitamin D in their fat. Eating our pork is one of the best sources of vitamin D (which is otherwise a common vitamin deficiency) you'll find anywhere.
Not only does our meat provide fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K, it provides a healthy dose of many B vitamins (including vitamin B12, not found in any plant foods).
Meat is an essential part of our diets, providing easily-digestible sources of protein (including all essential amino acids) and fat, as well as highly-bioavailable sources of iron, zinc, and numerous additional minerals. Stop living in the 19th century, fearing cholesterol and saturated fat (breaking news: both are good for you!), and nourish your body with the nutrients it's been craving!

For Economic Strength
You already know the importance of supporting local businesses. But how often do we actually apply this practice?
When you buy from us or other small, family-run, local farms, much of your money stays in your community. You are supporting your farmers, your friends, your neighbors, your local economy. Buying from us means buying from two people who live in the same community you do.
Four companies control over 80% of beef slaughter¹, resulting in beef prices that are half of what they were in the 1970s². These practices push out little farmers that were once the backbone of America (read more here). Let's help revitalize our rural and suburban communities by supporting local businesses and farmers.

For the Environment
Just a couple of hundred years ago, 30 million bison and millions of other ruminants roamed and migrated across North America. There was no tillage, and the ecosystem was in balance. Fast-forward to modern day, and our environment is constantly receiving abuse and degradation, with fewer wild ruminants and more soil erosion than what can be sustained.
How can we replicate our historic ecosystem that was once in harmony (while feeding 330 million Americans?) The answer is becoming clear: through regenerative and sustainable agricultural practices. A major component of those practices is replicating the intensive grazing of bison and other herbivores with our animal agriculture practices.
Our livestock are managed with this in mind, and are allowed to graze intensely in smaller paddocks and then moved frequently to replicate the ever-roaming habits of millions of bison. This leads to healthier soils and vegetation, which help sequester carbon. Sustainable animal agricultural practices are essential for the future of our ecosystem and environment.
