Creekside Farms - 100% Grassfed Beef
Here at Creekside Farms our beef is raised as herbivores were intended. This means that they eat a diet containing nothing but forages. This means no grain, no chicken manure and no fermented forages. Our goal is to as closely as possible follow the three characteristics that herbivores exhibit naturally. These are mobbing for predator protection, movement daily to fresh forage and a diet that contains forage only.
We move our cows to a new pasture paddock roughly every day. We use portable electric fencing to give them their daily forage allotment. We then move them on to their fresh new forage the next day. This practice allows the land to heal, thickens the forage, reduces pathogens, reduces weeds and increases the nutritional value of the meat.
We work with several local farmers in the area to provide the cattle that we raise here on the farm. Our cattle are a mixture of several different breeds. All the cattle we have here on the farm were born here in Cabarrus County. We also only work with farmers that agree to not use synthetic growth hormone implants.
