No Antibiotics or Hormones Ever!
As many of you may know the food industry has been dominated for many years by multi million dollar publicly traded companies who have an obligation to maximize their shareholders equity and in many cases reduce the quality of the production cycle at our expense (to our health) . As feed lots take on large amounts of cattle in a small amount of space, many of these industrial farmers will give antibiotics to help keep them alive until they are slaughtered at the meat market.
Most of the cattle on these large industrial farms will give their cattle hormones so they can grow faster and maximize the profit. The average age for a cow to be slaughtered is only 18 months. When you choose organic beef Central Virginia at Locust Grove Pastures, our black angus cattle are raised to their full maturity, of at least 24 months old.
We do not use any hormones or antibiotics on our beef .
Pesticide and Herbicide-Free Pasture
Grasses are the natural diet of cattle and make healthy beef that can’t be replicated by a diet of mostly grains. Organic beef Northern Virginia means that no pesticides or herbicides are used on the pastures that the cattle graze on. The use and trace consumption of pesticides and herbicides has been linked to cancer, infertility, and more health problems.
