profoundly better tasting and nutritious
Pasture raised. Fair wage. Farmed in the U.S.A.
Regenerative farming is the practice of growing plants and animals the way nature does—fostering a diversity of plants and trees, using no-till methods, and incorporating grazing animals. All our animals are raised on pasture where they roam and feed on what nature intended—no antibiotics, no hormones. Eating right results in meat that's richer in flavor and mountains more nutritious than conventionally raised meat.
The future of Farming is here
Grass Roots is a co-op working with over 40 small farms spanning coast to coast from the fertile ranches of Oregon to Ozark Highlands Ecoregion of Arkansas to the river-laced lands of Mississippi. Economically empowered, the farmers and ranchers of Grass Roots join a growing community of farms in the U.S. (and around the world) who have bucked mid-20th century thinking and stepped away from industrial, chemical and pesticide-based agriculture that degrades the land. Instead of degenerative farming, regenerative practices act to heal the landscape—and farmers are able to naturally and ethically produce higher quality, much tastier meat.
Why our ground is better.
You may have the perception that ground meat is of lesser quality than well known cuts. Creating ground meat from the whole animal in no way compromises the quality of our pasture raised meat. It is of the same high standard—and in some cases can be more flavorful than whole cuts because of the combination of light and dark meats, the ratio of lean to fat, or the mix of meats - like our beef-pork ground. Also keep in mind, ground meat minimizes food waste and pays respect to the animals by utilizing all the lesser know, tasty parts.
