Does Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished
Beef Taste Different?
The short answer is YES! It does taste different... it's so much better!
From time to time we go to the supermarket and pick up a package of ground beef that was available from their local supermarket. It's been a long time since we've used supermarket ground beef and we were shocked by the differences we noticed. The coloring, consistency, smell, texture, etc.
Not to mention, we had no idea where this beef came from (was it raised in the US or imported?) or how it was raised (what types of feed was it given, what type of environment did the cattle live in, how were they treated, were they given unnecessary antibiotics, etc?). We were quickly reminded of what and why we do what we do.
We try and maintain a good relationship with you, our customer. We strive to educate you about what you are purchasing when you visit Meadow Mist Farm. We let you have the opportunity to choose what food to feed your family. We are honored to be able to raise such high-quality grass-fed/grass-finished beef and its many benefits with which to feed your family.
And oh yes, It tastes delicious too!

Where Do All the Beef Cuts Come From?
Beef is divided into large sections called primal cuts, which you can see in our beef cuts chart. These primal beef cuts, or "primals," are then broken down further into subprimals, or "food-service cuts." These are then sliced and chopped into individual steaks, roasts, and other retail cuts.
