FAQ'S

Where do we get our ingredients?

Our beef comes from Thousand Hills Lifetime Grazed, a brand that sources cattle from regenerative farms across the Midwest, Northeast, and West. Our other ingredients come from Ace Natural, a New York wholesale distributor of Certified Organic produce with a focus on reducing its carbon footprint.

What is Regenerative Agriculture?

Regenerative livestock farming is the practice of careful management of grazing patterns to mirror natural processes while using little to no synthetic patterns or tillage of the land (1). High density cattle populations are rotated frequently between paddocks, a method known as adaptive multi-paddock grazing (2) allowing for intense periods of grazing and long recovery periods (1).The trampling of vegetation and manure by the cattle pushes organic matter into the soil increasing the nutrients available for grasses and other vegetation to use, leading to plant photosynthesis for underground growth that sequesters carbon (3). This process can be started with fields with poor soil health and untamed weeds and continually make the land healthier and of more value (1). As Adam Isaacs, a Texan cattle rancher, said, “These cows are my land management tool, [...] It’s a lot easier to work with nature than against it” (3). Conventional grazing practices instead often include non-stop grazing, which does not allow for regeneration and causes soil health degradation (2). The high-quality and natural feed from regenerative farming also reduces methane emissions as cows can digest it more efficiently in addition to reducing their need for antibiotics (2).

What are Humane Livestock Standards?

Humane livestock standards go beyond an animal receiving adequate feed and water and veterinary treatment of injuries and illnesses. Humane livestock standards include:

-Living without fear of predator aggression

-A natural diet free of animal byproducts

-Ability to express natural behaviors

The principles of regenerative agriculture adhere to humane farming standards. When the land is healthy, so are the cows. With regenerative grazing, cattle graze in a natural way. They live outdoors and are not confined in commercial feedlots. The highest humane standards for cattle include a lifetime diet of pasture and grass forage, as per the Food Animal Concerns Trust.

Animals raised humanely are less likely to experience illness or lameness. Cows have fewer reproductive issues. Less stress and foraging in the way that comes naturally to them contributes to more nutritious meat.

One hundred percent grass fed beef cattle are raised according to strict humane livestock standards. They do not receive growth hormones to speed development. Nor do they receive antibiotics for any reason other than treatment of disease.

Humane livestock treatment also means humane forms of weaning calves from their mothers. Farmers and ranchers practicing regenerative agriculture want to reduce the stress of weaning as much as possible. Calves are generally weaned from their mothers at the age of six months, but the condition of the cow and calf should determine the timing. Longer weaning times are encouraged.

Cows and calves should be kept with other cows and calves, not isolated. Beef cattle calves should not have their ears tagged at birth, which interrupts the bonding between mother and calf. Those practicing conventional methods of raising cattle argue that early ear tagging helps identify cattle, but cows know which calves are theirs. While ear tagging is necessary, it can wait until the calves are older.

When weaning takes place in traditional pens, the bawling between the cows and calves can go on for days. Humane fence line weaning, however, makes the process much easier.

In fence line weaning, cows and calves are together in pastures so that the younger animals can figure out where water sources are located. After a day or so, the cows are sorted and put in separate but adjacent pastures. The cows and calves can see each other through the fence, but calves cannot nurse. The calves have access to grass, like the cows, and both soon begin grazing. They can come back to “check on” each other through the fence. Within a few days, cows are no longer coming back to check on the calves, and the calves adjust well on their own. Those days of bawling are minimized. Calves weaned this way gain more weight and are less likely to experience illness.

What is grass fed beef and why is it more expensive than grain fed beef? One reason is that providing cattle with access to forage rather than feeding grain means it takes longer for the animal to reach its desired weight. Grass fed beef is leaner and healthier than grain fed beef. It contains more powerful antioxidants and has a greater nutritional value.
