For documentation on the benefits of grass-fed meat, see the resources below. We also recommend that you do your own research as well.

“Grass-fed beef typically comes from cattle that eat only grass and other foraged foods throughout their lives. Grass-fed beef may have some heart-health benefits that other types of beef don’t have. When compared with other types of beef and lamb, grass-fed may have:
*Less total fat
*More heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids
* More conjugated linoleic acid, a type of fat that’s thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks.
* More antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamin E”

“A benefit of omega-3s is that they may reduce your risk of cancer. In animal studies, these essential fats have slowed the growth of a wide array of cancers and also kept them from spreading. Omega-3s are most abundant in seafood and certain nuts and seeds such as flaxseeds and walnuts, but they are also found in animals raised on pasture. The reason is simple. Omega-3s are formed in the chloroplasts of green leaves and algae. Sixty percent of the fatty acids in grass are omega-3s.”

In addition, the grass-fed lambs and grass-fed beefs on BF Farms, LLC are born there and live their entire lives on one farm. They are not exposed to the unknowns of travel, the auction barn, and other farmers who may not be as concerned about the health of each lamb and beef..
When it’s time for your beef or lamb to be processed, you have complete assurance that the processor will never comingle your lamb or beef with animals raised on other farms.
