This is a non-organic Black Angus 100% grass fed beef, raised from start to finish on Alderspring's certified organic pastures. This package is comprised of an actual sixteenth of a beef, and can provide a savings of over 25% off a la carte prices found on the webstore.
Important: Please read this full disclosure statement regarding this beef. This steer is NON organic. Here's why: as a calf, his mother ate some non-organic grain while lactating to maintain body condition while grazing our organic hay and pasture. The calf didn't eat any. So after this calf weaned itself from mom, he lived his entire life on our certified organic pastures. He never had antibiotics or hormones or any chems that would disqualify him. The only break in the rules happened when his mom ate grain.
As a result, we couldn't certify him as organic. But he is 100% grass fed.
This pack contains a sixteenth portion of this Alderspring grass fed beef. An actual ribeye freezer pic is shown on this page.
