Gourmet on Grass!
When we started the farm, we sought a breed that was docile, and does well in a 100% grass-fed environment. Fellow area farmers told us we could never finish beef successfully without a “fattening up” corn-based period. This might be the case for other beef breeds, but we’ve found that our Devon cattle produce gourmet, quality beef on 100% grass.
Herbicide and Pesticide Free Pasture: We’re sure that you and your family don’t want to eat beef from an animal that has been digesting herbicides and pesticides. Essentially, we’re trying create the biological consistency the animals had in the 19th century, prior to the chemical saturation on farm fields.
As shown in the graphic above, a short intensive grazing period, with a long recovery period allows a sophisticated root system to develop. The result is healthier plants, which can have a significant environmental impact when adopted by more farmers.
