The Benefits of Grassfed Beef

Healthy Home Market is proud to offer local, grassfed beef from Grayson Natural Farms. But what exactly are the benefits of this beef vs. conventional factory farm raised beef? Well, let's start with the obvious, local grassfed beef just tastes better! It's miles fresher and when the cows are treated humanely, the beef is much more tender. Plus, you can feel better about your choice because not only do the animals live a peaceful life in a pasture, but everything about the process is better for the environment. Now, let's compare the health benefits of grassfed vs. grainfed. Grassfed is much leaner, lower in fat, contains healthy Omega 3's and CLA, plus more vitamins and minerals, including B's, C, E, Beta Carotene, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron and Selenium. And then there's what's not in it, such as, growth hormones, steroids, antibiotics, GMO corn and food industry waste. Seems like a clear choice right? Here's a handy infographic if you're still having trouble deciding!
