100 Percent Grassfed Beef
Here at Creekside Farms our beef is raised as herbivores were intended.
This means that they eat a diet containing nothing but grass during the
warm months and hay during the winter. They are not fed grain or
fermented silage. Our goal is to as closely as possible follow the three
characteristics that herbivores exhibit naturally. These are mobbing
for predator protection, movement often to fresh grass and a diet that
contains forages only.
When the grass is actively growing, 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 in
Cabarrus, or a neighboring, County. We also only work with farmers that
agree to not use synthetic growth hormone implants.
