Why grass-fed meat is best

Still shopping at a supermarket for your weekly cuts of meat? That’s a shame when you have the delights of organic, grass-fed meat at your fingertips.

Peelham Farm Organic supplies succulent cuts of grass-fed meat straight to the public, if you haven’t tasted it before, try a sizzling cut of organically reared produce for a change, we think you’ll become a convert straight away!  

To reinforce our claims we thought we’d share some of our feelings on the subject, don’t judge us until you have tried organic meat, here are some of the benefits of the grass-fed diet.

1)  It’s better for the environment

The cattle at Peelham spend their days feeding on the lush and rich grassland that covers our organic farmland. Our fields are free from pesticides, fertilisers and other artificial products known to have a detrimental impact on the environment.

Our animals return nutrients to the land, they naturally keep the soil in excellent condition, plus pasture farms are full of wildlife and they generally have a lower carbon footprint than farms that grow cereal crops to feed to animals.  

2)  It’s better for the cattle

Our cattle are happy and healthier than livestock fed on a grain diet. You can see this in their general demeanour, we like to look after our Aberdeen Angus and Luing x cross cattle, they free-graze throughout the year and during the winter the cows and calves bed down in open straw-bedded sheds whilst being fed a diet of natural haylage.

Happy and healthy breeds produce better quality beef, it’s richer in colour and the texture is significantly improved as well.

3)  It’s better for you!

Grass-fed beef is better for your health as well. Tuck into a plate of organic grass-fed beef and it’s:

  • High in vitamin B

  • High in vitamin E

  • Lower in overall fat

  • Lower in saturated fat (important for reducing the risk of heart disease)

  • Higher in Omega 3 (good fats)

  • Higher in minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium

Put all these factors together and it’s easy to see why grass-fed meat is best, try a joint of organic beef from Peelham this weekend and you’ll see what we mean.
