Unlike grain fed beef, grass fed beef is raised exclusively on pastures – just like nature intended. Grass fed cattle live a stress-free life of roaming and grazing, and the high quality of their life is evident in every bite of flavoursome, tender meat.
The Benefits of Grass Fed Beef
Grass fed beef is great for the planet, great for the cattle and great for your health. According to Australian Meat, grass fed meat is a fantastic source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for heart health, and, when trimmed of fat, has less than 2% saturated fat.
A recent study by researchers at California State University in Chico found (after examining 3 decades of research) that beef from pasture-raised cows is lower in calories than grain fed beef and contains more healthy omega-3 fats, more vitamins A and E, higher levels of antioxidants and up to seven times more beta-carotene (which aids in prevention against cancer and heart disease, prevents macular degeneration, boosts immunity and more).
In terms of taste, grass fed beef is lean, tender and unique in flavour due to the varied pastoral diet of the animals. The majority of our grass fed beef is sourced from Cape Grim Beef.
Cape Grim Grass Fed Beef
Cape Grim Beef is a collective of beef farmers throughout Tasmania. Cape Grim farmers are committed to sustainable farming and ethical practices – they nurture the finest quality cattle without harming the pristine environment of their land.
Cape Grim grass fed beef is hand-selected, graded rigorously and pure in flavour. You will not find better quality grass fed beef elsewhere.
