This process is not new, it’s the way our forefathers did it.
Raised on native Flint Hills Grass our cattle feed solely on the native grasses of the Flint Hills in a stress free and beautiful environment. We select only the best animals in our herd to provide to our customers.
We never treat our cattle with synthetic hormones or antibiotics. We do inoculate for a few common diseases and viruses to protect the health of the herd.
We strive to keep our cattle stress free and happy by using gentle handling techniques. Stress increases the pH level of meat, causing the meat to begin breaking down almost immediately after butchering. Short-term stress leads to toughness and flavor loss in meat.*
