What is meant by "All-Natural"?

All-natural means that none of our beef, chickens or turkeys are given any steriods, hormones (growth or otherwise), or antibiotics. They are not altered chemically in any way and no preservatives or artificial ingredients are added to any of the products grown on our farm.

Why is knowing where your food comes from important?
The importance of knowing where your food comes from starts from the ground up.  If you're not taking care of the soil, the soil can't take care of the plants and in turn the plants are not healthy feed for the animals that we ingest.  On our farm we are actively involved with the following programs to ensure the highest soil quality:

--Iowa State University
--Chichaqua Conservation
--Practical Farmers of Iowa
--Iowa Forage and Grassland Council
--Steering Comm. for Grass-Based Livestock             Working Group
--Iowa Cattlemans Association
--Iowater, Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring
--Iowa Farm Bureau
--NRCS
--EQUIP











Grass-fed beef vs. corn/pasture-fed beef?

The choice between grass-fed and corn-fed is really one of personal choice.  There are health benefits to eating grass-fed beef over corn-fed, however, many believe there are flavor benefits to corn-fed beef.  Both of our beef options are all-natural.  Grass-fed beef tends to be lower in fat and calories and is found to have a higher content of Omega-3 fatty acids, which is good for the heart.  Grass-fed beef is also higher in vitamins and is a good source of Conjugated Linoleic Acid, which is another good fat for the body.

Our family raises both, eats both, and sells both!!!  You can make the choice for your family.
