Behind the Scenes:
Here at Red Star Beef we are a family owned business raising beef on our ranches in the Rocky Mountains of western Colorado.
The cattle we own are raised both in the higher summer pastures around Meeker, CO. and in the lower spring and winter pastures of Loma, CO., Giving them a unique variety of grasses, climates and open pastures. Our business is truly a family effort with 3rd, 4th and 5th generations working together on the ranches.
In every box you will receive the beef which we have raised and harvested from our pastures. We take great pride in offering you and your family the same great quality meat we feed our family.
At Red Star Beef, all of our meat is grass-finished. There is a huge difference between grass fed, and grass finished beef. Grass fed doesn't always mean grass finished. Beef that is labeled as grass fed can come from cows that were started on a grass diet, but then transitioned to a grain-based diet. In fact, many "grass-fed" cows spend the last few months of their lives on a grain diet to help them quickly gain weight.
When we raise our cows, they are grass fed 100% of the time - from start to finish!
GRASS FINISHED BEEF HAS:
- Less calories than grain-finished beef
- Higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids
- Considerably more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals
