you ARE what you EAT

So it should come as no surprise that what you eat is what it eats, too. It's a remarkably simple concept: the nutritional value of an animal product is directly influenced by the animal's diet. Therefore, say advocates of the rapidly growing Grass-fed movement, the animal's diet should be as biologically natural and as packed full of nutrients as possible, right? Apparently not, if you're in the U.S. commercial meat business. The truth is that a vast majority of our country's commercially raised ruminants like cattle are raised in feedlots, fed a grain-based diet and, typically, treated with hormones, feed additives and low-level antibiotics.

"This is some very tasty beef. Best I've had in ages. This is our first grass fed beef, and we knew it was going to be more flavorful, but it's beyond what we expected."

- Tom I. (Check out his great recipe for Guinness Sliders in our recipe section!)

it's more then meats the eye

But the move toward grass-fed is about more than just animal welfare. It's also about human health. Inappropriately feeding animals dry grain is a direct contributor to those animals developing pathogens such as E. coli (in cattle) and Salmonella (in poultry). And if that isn't convincing enough, consider that mad cow disease is unknown among cattle fed entirely on pasture and hay.

Raising grass feed beef isn't easy. Mother Nature plays a huge role in the growth and condition of our pastures. Droughts, heavy rains and periodic winter freezes in Florida can make our cycling of harvests a bit unpredictable. After all, raising grass fed beef is really about raising healthy green grasses for our cows to enjoy. The average cycle of getting a cow ready for harvest is 24 -30 months so patience is also a large part of the process.

Besides the grass aspect, selecting the type of beef to raise involves understanding the different genetics of different breeds, their breeding cycles and their characteristics. Raising a quality grass fed beef is a continual learning process. We have carefully chosen to raise pure Black Angus beef for our grass fed operation because of its great taste, tenderness and consistent quality.

HoWa Farms is committed to the humane treatment of animals, while also providing a delicious beef that you can be proud to serve to your family. Beef can be purchased by the quarter, half or whole cow. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to provide your family with delicious, nutritious grass fed beef!
