How your food is raised and cared for ultimately impacts that nutritional value that it contains at time of harvest.  Here at Arrow J Beef Co., we’ve gone back to the basics, by raising beef as it was intended.  Because cattle are meant to eat grass, adding grain to their diet creates an imbalance in their metabolism and a change in their nutrient composition, leading to unhealthy fats and lower vitamin & mineral content in your beef.

Because our cattle are being raised in an environment where they are able to roam and graze freely, living as cattle should, sickness and disease naturally do not occur. Furthermore, we have matched the breed of cattle to the environment and climate we live in, creating optimal health in our animals. Therefore, we have no need for use of any antibiotics or unnecessary vaccines.  We avoid the use of growth hormones, allowing the animal to naturally build muscle and fat and they roam and graze.
