Dave's All-Natural Grass Fed Beef

What an animal eats matters dramatically, especially when it comes to beef. The difference between a steer eating grain or grass makes a stunning difference, as these four bites of "meaty" information will show you:

  • A sirloin steak from a grass-fed steer has from one half to one third the fat as sirloin from a grain-fed steer.
  • The difference between grain-fed and grass-fed in a 6-ounce steak is almost 100 calories.
  • Grass-fed beef gives you from two- to six times more Omega-3 Fatty Acids - and that's a very good thing.
  • Grass-fed meat has about the same amount of fat as skinless chicken.

If there's still any doubt, why not try some of Dave's Grass-Fed Beef? The difference is sure to make you a believer.

Nature Source Beef

"Natural" is a word that's used freely in grocery aisles and on food labels. But often, its meaning is a bit vague - except when it describes beef from Nature Source. Dave's is proud to offer you Nature Source Choice Beef or All-Natural Grain-Fed Beef. Both superior and scrumptious.

Imagine a healthy, content herd of Black Angus cattle, leisurely grazing on green fields - or at rest in a clean, airy barn where they're fed a 100% vegetarian diet, totally free of animal byproducts, antibiotics, growth promoting drugs, hormones or artificial ingredients. The Nature Source farmers are committed to raising their cattle humanely, in a clean, stress-free environment. Sure, it requires more time, energy and care, but the result is a grade of beef that is unmatched.
