Our grass fed and finished Highland beef takes a full year longer to grow to market weight than typical beef found in a supermarket. This is due to the fact that we do not finish them on corn or grain and only feed them what they naturally graze upon - grass and brush. This natural finishing gives Highland beef lower fat, cholesterol and superior flavor. A recent study by the Scottish Agricultural College found that Highland beef more than 10% less fat per serving than traditional commercial beef. Highland beef is also significantly lower in cholesterol than turkey, a meat commonly suggested as a beef alternative for recipes. Pound for pound, Highland beef has more iron and protein than commercial/commodity beef. All of these benefits are a fantastic reason to add Highland beef to your table or menu.
