Now Taking Orders for Beef in 2021
The order window for beef is open again. We're taking orders for 2021, Information is in the monthly newsletter.
The grass - fed beef is in the news again. One of the latest revelations, which grass-based livestock producers have known for years, is that Grass-fed cattle are NOT consuming foods that could otherwise feed people.
Here's a quote from Diana Rogers, a registered dietitian who runs the Sustainable Dish Blog,
“Grass-fed cattle are a net protein gain for our food system.
In grass-fed cattle, 100 percent of their food is not competing with humans for food.
Protein is the most satiating macro-nutrient; meat is the most nutrient dense food, which means that it has the most vitamins and minerals per calorie of any food there is.”

100% Grass fed Angus beef, raised on certified organic pasture, dry aged to perfection is the healthy choice.
At Forest Hill Farm we raise purebred Red Angus cattle. Angus is the gold standard of beef. Our cattle are raised and MIG grazed on certified organic pastures. An added benefit - our beef is dry-aged, it's tender and full of rich flavor.
MIG grazing improves the soil, sequesters nitrogen, and adds to the microbial activity of pastures and prevents the desertification of land.
