Yeah, something like this…

Most of you have probably heard of “grass-fed beef”, or noticed “vegetarian fed” on your meat lables, but do you know what this means?  They are definitely not the same thing.  Please read the following article, with tons more information at www.Eatwild.comThis 2009 study was a joint effort between the USDA and researchers at Clemson University in South Carolina. Compared with grain-fed beef, grass-fed beef was:

  1. Lower in total fat
  2. Higher in beta-carotene
  3. Higher in vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
  4. Higher in the B-vitamins thiamin and riboflavin
  5. Higher in the minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium
  6. Higher in total omega-3s
  7. A healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs 4.84)
  8. Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter
  9. Higher in vaccenic acid (which can be transformed into CLA)
  10. Lower in the saturated fats linked with heart disease
In our quest to keep you healthy and eating delicious food, we will be buying some local grass fed bison from Linder Bison!  Definitely read over their website to familiarize yourself with some interesting bison stats.  Let me know if you are interested in purchasing any, the cost will be somewhere around $9/lb, depending on how much we purchase.
Remember, grass fed GOOD, grain fed BAD.
