We take care of the land and our cattle and it shows in our products
At Box H Farm, we pay attention to the quality of our soil, our grass and our cattle. We know you’ll enjoy eating local, healthy food and you’ll feel good knowing our land and animals are treated well. Finishing beef cattle on grass means that
they graze for as much of the year as possible, but also eat hay we have grown. Our beef is 100% grass fed. We feed no grain and cattle eat only forages (grass and vegetation growing on the land).
Letting cows be cows
We handle our cattle to minimize stress by using their natural instincts and understanding what they want to do. Cows move every day or two during the summer. When we show up, they are ready and willing to go! In winter, cows are sheltered but not kept in corrals or pens – they always have plenty of space and clean ground.
Our native prairie is valuable resource. It protects the soil, is a carbon sink and also provides food and habitat for both livestock and wildlife. We are fortunate to have native prairie in our care and we are always looking for ways to enhance and improve this environment. We believe that cattle are a great tool for managing the prairie. When it’s managed properly, everyone wins.
Health Benefits of Grass-Finished Beef
Grass and other forages are the natural foods that cattle evolved to eat. Beef finished on grass has been shown to contain less saturated fat, more Omega-3 fatty acids, more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). We believe that the management of the land and animals and having connection with our foods can make us healthier and happier. Knowing where our food comes from and the story behind it is both important and satisfying.
We currently offer grass-finished beef mixed eighths, various package, beef burgers and lean ground beef. Visit the Box H Farm Shop for more information and to place an order.
