Commercial practices have given beef a bad reputation. Our farming philosophy puts beef back at the center of a healthy diet. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you in your quest for pure food. Hippocrates said "Let your food be your medicine". We say "Let your beef be Eden Pure."
What makes Eden Pure Beef different?
Our cattle are 100% lifetime grass-fed. It is important to remember that all cows are grass fed. It is the "grain finished" part of their diet that is a game-changer, taxing the bovine liver, which is not designed for a grain-heavy diet, and reversing the proportions of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. A healthy Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio is 4:1 or lower. Grass-fed beef is around 3:1. Grain-fed's ratio is 20:1. Grain finishing also helps create the fat-marbled meat that consumers have become accustomed to. But fat should primarily be between and around muscles - not threaded through the muscle fibers.
In addition to grass, our cattle graze on a wide variety of native flora thriving in our pastures, offering greater nutritional diversity than a single species crop. We selectively breed for natural hardiness and our cattle live free of vaccines, antibiotics, and wormers. We never use chemicals on or in our cattle or on our land.
What it means for your health
Our farming philosophy starts with healthy land to produce healthy cattle, which in turn produces healthy beef for you. Simply put, our beef is leaner and has the proper Omega fatty acid ratio, plus none of the pharmaceuticals - routine antibiotics and hormones like estradiol - being used to encourage greater weight gain in commercially raised cattle. All that goes into our cattle is the natural forage designed for them by God and nature, water from the many springs on our land, and trace minerals (the only supplement we give them).
