Our beef is always 100% grassfed and grass finished producing the highest quality product, with superior nutritional properties.

The Greenacres Difference

  • 100% grassfed and grass finished, never fed grain
  • Free to roam on pasture from birth to harvest day
  • No unnecessary antibiotics
  • Low stress calf weaning
  • Staff who love our animals
  • Butchers chosen with animal welfare in mind
  • Cattle rotated quickly through pasture
  • Without confinement, manure fertilizes grasses and improves the soil
  • Healthy soil sequesters carbon, holds rainwater
  • Higher Omega 3 and lower Omega 6 fatty acids (anti-inflammatory)
  • Fuller phytonutrient profile, including vitamins A and E (Learn More)
  • Lower overall fat content

Versus Grain-Finished Beef

  • Fed grain, especially in the last few months of life
  • Commonly confined in feedlots for some or all of their lives
  • Commonly administered regular antibiotics to aid weight gain
  • Animals are often under stress
  • Large amounts of waste concentrated in small areas
  • Confined cattle compact soil and prevent water absorption
  • Pollution of soil and waterways
  • Lower Omega 3 and higher Omega 6 fatty acids (inflammatory)
  • Lacking phytonutrients
  • Higher overall fat content

A Responsible Protein Choice

How does Greenacres beef compare to plant-based “meat alternatives”? Ingredients used to produce these products (soy, peas, seed oils, rice, etc) are grown in huge, industrial agricultural operations that tend to specialize in and grow only one crop, a practice known as ‘monocropping’. Monocrop agriculture can harm the environment in many ways; compacting and degrading soils, using large quantities of pesticides and herbicides, polluting water, and harming biodiversity. Monocropped soils are often devoid of the lifeforms you’d find in healthy soils, like bacteria, invertebrates, insects, and fungi.

Raising cattle on pasture actually improves the environment, improving both the quality and quantity of soil biology, sequestering carbon and building biodiversity. If you’re looking for responsible protein choice, look no further than 100% grassfed, grass-finished beef.

Superior Genetics

For over 30 years, Greenacres has been developing a line of Angus genetics that perform superior in grass based systems. Our farmers are constantly improving our herd; introducing genetic traits that make our cows finish better on grass, while our researchers study the farming practices that make products with better nutritional properties. This collaborative effort between farmers and scientists creates beef with superior flavor, texture, and nutritional properties. When it comes to beef that is better for you and tastes good, there is no substitute to Greenacres grass-fed, grass-finished.

Earlier this week the weather was perfect for winter bed prep. Around the middle of Autumn, we begin to prep various garden and flower beds for winter so that they have healthy rich soil in the spring. Using old baleage as a form of mulch in the fall, we ensure full ground cover that doubles as a carbon source for soil life that will eventually break down over the course of the winter. Any remaining baleage can be easily raked out by the spring and the beds are ready to go to begin planting into! ...

To reduce the impact and emissions of constant mowing, our estate crew works with the livestock team to utilize sheep (and cattle) to graze areas that traditionally would have been mowed. Using temporary fencing, the flock is moved around the property improving soil fertility and root structure as they go. Our livestock crew makes sure to interact with them daily to socialize them and train them to move with ease from one paddock to another. ...

It's one of our favorite days of autumn: TURKEY FREEDOM DAY! Our turkeys brood indoors for 4 weeks. At that point they are too big to stay indoors, but still too small to be free-range. To ensure they are safe, we move them into predator-proof mobile coops for another 3 weeks until they are large enough that aerial predators don't see them as dinner. Our livestock team sets up an electrified poultry fence as a barrier from ground predators and does a final check of their infrastructure and then our turkeys are free to enjoy fresh green pastures. They'll spend the next month foraging on clover, other grasses, insects and enjoying the fall weather.
