In recent years, we’ve become more and more aware of the importance of where our food comes from. Consumer preferences have especially shifted when it comes to meat and choosing grass-fed over conventionally raised options. Keep reading to discover the numerous benefits nutritionally and environmentally that come with choosing grass-fed beef.  
Health Benefits

Grass-fed to begin with is a great source of lean protein and is lower in fat and calories than traditional steaks. Cuts of grass-fed meat are generally leaner because the animals are raised on a natural diet of grass and forage, leading to a far lower fat content and higher levels of healthy omega-3 fatty acids.  

Grass-fed is most importantly free from hormones and antibiotics used in most grain fed meat. Feed cows are given massive doses of antibiotics due to the illnesses that run rampant in factory farms. When eating meat from these farms you’re also consuming the antibiotics as well as hormones given to the animal. Grass-fed meat provides more nutrients and much cleaner meat.  
Environmental Benefits 

Grass-fed beef production often comes with far more sustainable and regenerative farming practices. Grazing animals can contribute to healthier soil, carbon sequestration, and overall ecosystem balance. Grass-fed beef production tends to have a lower carbon footprint compared to conventional feedlot operations. Pasture based systems can contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly meat industry.  

Flavour Benefits 

On top of being free from any harmful antibiotics and hormones grass-fed meat also tastes better. Grass-fed beef is known to have a more robust earthy flavour than regular beef. This comes from the varied diet of the cow’s that allows the spices to come through clearer. Adding a little butter, salt and pepper is all you need to bring the amazing natural flavours of this beef out!
