A few years ago, my wife Abby and I sat down to a nice meal with the staff at the Boundary Waters Experience, which is the camp ministry that we direct. The scenery was good, the company was great, and this particular meal was going to change how we would eat.
Being a camp that has to feed large groups of people, relying on economies of scale is important to our budget. Although we were never proud of it, we did the majority of our food purchasing from the large box store that sells in bulk. It made complete sense financially.
That fall we were able to team up with some friends and go in together on buying a whole beef from a local farmer. Because we were getting the beef directly from the farmer we assumed that the animal was raised on pasture. We felt better about buying locally, but we were shocked to later find out that the animal was confined and raised on grain when we began asking more about the farm.
The Grass Fed Cattle Co. was created to economically provide the highest quality, safe, and responsible beef to people living in Minneapolis and St. Paul. We are confident that our beef is a healthy product, offering great omega-3 fatty acids, CLA’s, which are known to prevent cancer, also adding vitamin A and E to our diets. We serve this to our family, our friends, and to the folks that come to our camp. We know that you will be pleased to serve it to your loved ones as well.
