Grass-fed beef is the “new red meat” and we are taking it very serious here at Applecheek Farm. We use heritage breed genetics such as Devons and Shorthorns to raise meats that acquire excellent marbling, texture, and flavor. We take great pride in both raising and finishing our beef on grass, which produces a superior taste and nutritional volume in comparison to conventional grain fed cattle.
Our cows are raised on pasture and consume large amounts of beautiful, nutrient dense grass without any pesticides or harmful chemicals. This generates an organic product that is low in saturated fat and packed with beta-carotene, vitamins A,E, and high in omega 3 fatty acids and CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid).
Our grazing system is done in a managed, rotational pattern that builds ecological resilience and fertility within our soils. In return, this method sequesters carbon at a very high rate unlike non sustainable farming operations.
