Our Farm Raised natural beef benefits are surprising to most consumers. People don't realize how different the nutritional value of the exact same product can be depending on how it was actually produced.

Eat New York natural beef with a more balanced ratio of Omega-3 fats to Omega-6 fats
The natural diet of cattle is green grass that is naturally high in Omega-3 fats because it is formed in their green leaves, as well as Vitamin E. When cattle are placed on a high grain diet they lose their source of Omega-3’s and thus their ability to store Omega-3’s. They also lose their source of Vitamin E. Omega-3 fat or “fatty acid” is one of the “good fats” that is essential for normal growth and development and plays a role in the prevention of heart disease, cancer, and arthritis, to name a few. An important fact is that Omega-3 fats MUST come from your diet because your body cannot make them. We have moved away from corn feeding on our hayrides to better tune the cattle diets on our farm.
Beef from grassfed ruminants is also one of the best known sources of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), and may contain up to five times the amount of CLA as meat from primarily grain-fed cattle. CLA is proving to be one of the best defenses in preventing cancer.
