We are pleased to announce that after submitting our beef for testing for a research study Newcastle University carried out, the results have now been announced!
The study has confirmed that animals fed on a natural grass only diet produce meat of a much higher nutritional value than animals fed cereals or even animals finished for a short while on cereals.
This is the first scientific record of the extra benefit if cattle are fed 100% forage diets throughout their life.
Meat from 100% pasture fed now qualifies as a source of long chain omega 3 fatty acids.
A major weakness of many modern diets around the world is a shortage of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, potentially one cause of numerous chronic physical and mental health conditions, hence the advice to eat oily fish. However, our organic grass fed beef is a reliable alternative source.
Why not buy some grass fed beef from our online shop, to help get your source of long chain omega 3 fatty acids!
