Raised as nature intended
In New Zealand, we are blessed with lush green pastures, where cattle can wander, forage and graze as they wish. Because they live as nature intended, we believe this results in better animal welfare, with animals that are less stressed and happier. You’ll find the meat is lean, healthy and full of natural flavour.
Grass-fed, not gain-fed
While most cattle in New Zealand is grass-fed, many animals may be grain-fed at some point in their life, which can expose them to artificial additives. There are even some feedlots around the country where animals are sent to spend their last few months fattening up on grains. But at Misty Meadows, our happy, healthy cattle only eat grass.
Healthy, nutritious organic beef
Research shows, grass-fed beef is lower in saturated fat, higher in vitamins A and E. Vitamin A helps form and maintain healthy teeth, skeletal and soft tissue, mucus membranes and skin. Vitamin A also promotes good eyesight, especially in low light
Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, helping protect the body from free radicals, which are compounds that can damage the body. Vitamin E also supports the immune system and helps make red blood cells. Grass-fed beef is also higher in omega-3 fatty acids. And it just tastes better.
