Grass - Fed
About Us / New England Grass Fed LLC History: New England Grass Fed grows top-quality 100% grass-fed, free-ranged beef, goat and rabbit LOCALLY, NATURALLY & HUMANELY in rotational grazing program on contract pasture (land we don't own) in southern Rhode Island. We are passionate about raising meat animals in a way that respects their natural design on the land that sustains them. Since we don't own a farm or breeding herd we buy yearlings from known sources we have worked with for years that provide us with superior finishing stock we can grow out to our high standard.
I am a landscape architect who lost his job about 4 years ago and turned a weekend hobby selling for a local grass-fed farm into my own brand with multiple herd sources and grazing partners.
Of course there are no antibiotics or hormones. We find spiritual presence in accepting the gift in gratitude. Cattle are grazing ruminants designed to eat ONLY grass. Our grass-finished meat has incredible powerful deep beef flavor and superior nutritional profile (Omega-3, Vitamin A, E, beta-carotenes, CLA) compared with grain-finished beef. We focus on growing cross-bred Red Devons, an old English heritage breed that retains the ability to fatten to an amazing standard in pasture program. That is our differential quality that we believe sets us apart.
Our 100% grass-fed beef costs more than feedlot and local grain-finished options due to the functions of SPACE and TIME. Good pasture is extremely costly and beef cattle take 6-8 months longer to finish to high culinary standard on grass compared with other methods. We seek out people who share our values and look forward to telling you more about healthy, efficient, low energy-input animals that (1) don't need drugs (2) provide enormous environmental / organic soil benefit with low carbon footprint (3) gain amazing deep flavor in rotational grazing (4) improve the land rather than cause pollution from feedlots and (5) provide value to local farming families up and down the supply chain.
