Beef

100% Grassfed, Grass Finished Beef

Greenacres produces 100% grassfed, grass finished beef in the Cincinnati area. Our cattle spend their entire lives roaming outdoors, eating fresh, living pasture during the growing season and high quality hay in the winter, a diet that suits their natural digestive processes making for healthy, happy cows. 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
  • 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 month we mentioned that we use compost as part of our efforts to increase soil health and biodiversity. Our in-vessel compost facility makes this possible and allows us to transform up to 1,000 tons of stable waste, garden waste, and food scraps from our facilities into nutrient dense compost every year! ...
