WHY GRASS FED BEEF?
Cattle grazing in fields is experiencing a renaissance of sorts as farmers, ranchers and consumers alike are recognizing the merits and value of grass fed beef. There is a shared demand and desire to improve animals’ quality of life, be good stewards of the environment and provide higher quality meat that is healthier for consumers. So we took to the streets and to the farms and to the markets and to the cows to get to the bottom of why people chose grass fed over conventional beef.
TOP 3 REASONS PEOPLE CHOOSE GRASS FED OVER CONVENTIONAL BEEF

Aside from the nutritional advantages many people just appreciate how grass fed cattle are treated. ‘There is something idyllic about cattle roaming around in the fields with pastures to graze, fresh grass to eat and room to move’. said one Hanks Grass Fed Beef consumer. That does sound like a moovalous life for the cows, however, it is important to note that amongst all the beef and cattle farmers there are good farmers and not so good farmers so swooping generalizations wont do. It’s important that you choose Grass Fed Beef from a reputable and transparent source who wouldn’t be afraid to give you a tour of the farm to see what life on the farm is really like.
