At Cottonwood Ranch, we believe that in order to get quality organic beef Front Royal VA, the cattle need to be allowed to mature naturally, so we never use any growth hormones or steroids. We also believe that the cattle have a right to live as they would in nature, so we don’t use antibiotics. There’s no need to use antibiotics because our grass-fed beef Front Royal VA is healthy. It’s full of healthy fats, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, and has a lower calorie count. This is because grass-fed beef Front Royal VA comes from cattle that are grazing all the time, just as they would in the wild.
Our cattle are 100% free-range and have total freedom on our pastures. We believe this makes the best organic beef Front Royal VA because the cows are not sick, not confined, and allowed to age naturally. We also allow the local beef Front Royal VA from our cattle to come to full maturity before slaughtering the animal, while at commercial farms, most cattle are slaughtered at a much younger age than this.
Grass-fed beef in Front Royal VA is nothing like what you’ll find at the supermarket. The beef you’re buying at the supermarket most likely came from a sick animal that was fed unnatural, genetically-modified grains. The beef you’re buying also likely came from a cow that was confined all its life. This is because the free-range standards of the United States only dictate that at some point in its life, the animal has been allowed access to the outside. This is easily done by opening up a door through which the cattle will probably be too scared to go through. This is not local beef Front Royal VA, even if it claims to be.
At Cottonwood Ranch, we’re committed to keeping our cattle as well as their beef truly local to provide you with the best organic beef Front Royal VA. This is why our slaughterhouse is local (a mere 40 minutes away), and we transport the cattle ourselves in small numbers so as to allow comfort and prevent overcrowding. We also breed and raise our Black Angus cattle right here in Front Royal. The only time the cattle ever leave our farm is to be transported to the plant where they’ll be processed. Local beef Front Royal VA at Cottonwood Ranch is truly local.
