Organic and Natural Grass-fed Beef Suppliers
Finding grass-fed, grass-finished beef online is no easy task. Unfortunately, many ranchers feel the need to finish their cattle on grain, ruining the nutritional quality of the finished beef. While this list may not be a long one, you can be sure that all the ranchers have been contacted to confirm their cattle is, indeed, grass-finished. Ranches that also are certified organic are in bold type. This list will be updated periodically, but if you notice any errors or know of a company that belongs on this list, e-mail Green Promise at email@example.com. Eat responsibly!
