Why Two Brothers Jerky Uses Only Local Grass Fed, Grass Finished Beef
LocalOur grass fed, grass finished beef is currently provided by local, family-run farms in North Carolina. Small farms provide livelihoods for local farmers and producers. We are able to see our cows in the fields and have confidence that they are humanely raised. Choosing local farmers to provide our beef encourages the growth of the local, grass fed beef industry. Our beef is not shipped from half a world away by boat or plane, reducing the costs in fossil fuels associated with such transportation and providing a fresher, tastier, homegrown grass fed beef jerky.
Benefits of Grass Fed Beef
Grass fed beef is healthier, higher in Omega-3 and antioxidants and lower in cholesterol and saturated fat. Grass fed beef is higher in beta-carotene and is up to four times higher in vitamin E, which lowers the risk of heart disease and cancer. Grass fed beef is also a rich source of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), associated with a lower risk of cancer. Our grass fed beef is non-GMO certified and does not contain hormones and antibiotics used to sustain corn fed cows. Additionally, Two Brothers Jerky is nitrate-free with and made using only natural preservatives.
Grazed grass land requires less fossil fuel than that needed to grow corn and grains. Well managed grazed land reduces water runoff and provides cleaner, more abundant water. Grass fed beef does not use immense quantities of corn and grain in the production process, food which could be used to feed the nearly one billion people who do not have enough to eat.
Grass fed, grass finished beef involves cattle grazing in natural, spacious, healthy conditions. Grass fed cattle lead more humane, less stressful lives, and do not live in the unsanitary conditions that characterize large, commercial corn fed lots.
Our natural grass fed, grass finished beef jerky tastes like beef is supposed to taste: delicious! Fresh grass and exercise produces lean, natural meat that tastes fantastic. Grass fed beef is not preservative laden, fatty, or artificially textured.
All beef producers start their cows on grass initially. Most non-grass finished cattle are quickly moved to industrial feed lots where the producers “finish” the cows on a diet of grain and corn, complete with the problems associated with grain fed beef. Hormones and antibiotics are added to aid in digesting the corn and provide for maximum weight. Our beef is 100% grass fed and grass finished, providing the most natural, delicious beef from start to finish.
