The beef we sell comes from animals that are around two years old. Our stock come from a herd that has been carefully maintained for the past 30 years in rural northeast Iowa by Jacob’s parents Peter and Kristi McGreal. The animals are never given growth hormones and they are not treated with antibiotics unless absolutely necessary for their health and safety. They are pastured in an area where they have access to a host of different grasses and plants including alfalfa, red and ladino clovers, orchard grass, tall fescue and brome grass. We rotate pastures often to maximize the availability of fresh, nutritious plants and to minimize the impact on the land.
The cattle have space to roam and shelter to protect them from the elements. We provide our animals a comfortable and safe environment with low stress because it results in better quality meat for us and our customers.
