Pastured Beef Benefits
If you’ve been reading our site for awhile, you’ll know we’re all about whole, healthy foods. That’s why, when we stumbled across this free download, we were really excited to share it with our readers:
Clicking that link will take you to a terrific article about animal welfare food labels, such as “Grassfed,” “Free-Range,” and “Cage-Free.” Some people might be astonished to learn how “cage-free” chickens really live:
The page also includes a free downloadable PDF called The Grass-Fed Primer. The 20-page primer answers questions like:
- What does grass-fed mean?
- How do I know if meat is grass-fed?
- Why are feedlots bad for us and for the animals?
- What are the environmental concerns of raising beef?
On a related note, if you have a Netflix account which allows for online access, you can watch Food, Inc. – a truly eye-opening look at modern food from the same folks involved with Fast Food Nation, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and more. We also recommend Fresh The Movie, which is also available on Netflix.
Here at Black Chicken Host, we’ll stick to our organic, humanely raised and slaughtered, grass-fed beef and chicken from Creswick Farms.
We encourage you to read the article, and the downloadable PDF file, especially if your family is not buying pastured meat. We’re always happy to share our experiences and expertise in this area – please feel free to ask any questions, or offer your thoughts!
