There are so many products today in supermarkets that market themselves as being “Organic” but What Does Organic Beef mean?
Organic beef is beef that has been produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations (The United States Department of Agriculture National Organic Program).
A big question to answer is if these organic products are actually more beneficial for us when compared to non-organic foods and are they worth the extra few dollars that they cost?
When it comes to organic beef it cannot be considered organic if there is found to be use of antibiotics or any added growth hormones. As well as this the cattle must have access to the outdoors. We here at TXBar used to be certified organic beef but we recently took the decision to not renew our payment to USDA due to the numerous amounts of payments required each year. We still abide by all of the organic practices mentioned above, the only change is that we aren’t paying for the “official” label that allows us to call our grass fed beef organic. We never use antibiotics or hormones to feed our cattle, when you buy beef from our ranch you can be sure it is 100% grass fed quality beef. This is good news for you as a consumer due to the many benefits associated with grass fed beef both for you personally as well as the surrounding environment. Be sure to check out our dedicated blog that outlines the 5 key health benefits associated with grass-fed beef.
As mentioned in the definition at the start of this blog post organic beef should assist with the conservation of the surrounding environment in which the cattle are grazing in. The environmental benefits associated with grass fed beef are quite profound and we also have a great blog post that explains what exactly these benefits are to the environment, be sure to check it out!
