How Our Cattle Are Raised

Our 100% grass-fed beef are rotationally grazed on certified organic pastures containing a mix of Legumes, naturally growing herbs, and grasses. The grazing season runs from May through November in Eastern Iowa. In the winter, they are given the certified organic hay that is grown through the summer on the farm.

We Proudly Feature a Mix of Devon, Hereford, Black and Red Angus Breeds

All our steers and heifers are at least half Devon. We chose the Devon breed for their ability to finish out on grass alone, and for their tender, flavorful meat. When crossed with the other English beef breeds, this produces an animal with excellent hybrid vigor and a moderately sized frame, perfect for 100% grass-fed beef.
