There's no gentle way of saying this, so here goes: artificial junk has no place in our cows, on our land, or on your table. Our cows eat and live the way nature intended, only better. They graze on bright green ribbons of carefully managed, mouth-high grass from spring through summer, they're served unadulterated hay in winter, and they range over hundreds of acres of pasture year 'round. No hormones, no antibiotics, no grain, no corn. And no confinement.

What does this old-fashioned, natural approach to farming produce? Meat that is leaner and healthier, with a balanced ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids derived from the natural grass diet. And the taste? Cleaner, lighter, and more flavorful than any grain-fed beef. Some customers describe the taste as sweet, with a nutty finish. Others say it tastes "real." Whatever the description, Nevada County Free Range Beef is just plain delicious, because it's the product of purity.
