Pasture-Raised Natural Meat 

No routine antibiotics means not adding to antibiotic resistant bacteria

No medications unless an animal is ill or suffered an injury

Withdrawal times before slaughter strictly observed when medications are needed

No growth hormones

Access to outdoors, exercise, clean air, water and sunshine

Small herds are environmentally friendly with low stress on animals and the land

No manure lagoons

Pasture and hay diet utilizies marginal or non tillable land

The animals spread the manure naturally revitalizing pasture and cycling nutrients

Short transports to processing minimalizies stress

No chlorine, or chemical baths, no irradiation, gas treatments or saline injections

Local slaughter houses process meat from carcass to individual cuts which are then frozen before going directly to the customer insuring quality and freshness

Vs.

Conventional factory farms 

Routine antibiotics and hormone use

Animals confined to a feedlot, hugh crowded herds, high stress on land and animals

Little or no green material in diet, grain is bulk of diet which is hard on a ruminates digestive system, grain production for animal feed contributes to environmental problems and world hunger

Manure lagoons often lead to ground water contamination

Long transports to processing facilities create high stress on animals which leads to dehydration and sickness

Meat is often treated with chlorine baths, saline solutions, gases and irradiation, all of which is currently FDA approved to prolong shelf life without freezing
