When the weather gets chilly and blankets of snow cover the ground, there’s only one thing left to do… pack up your car with all your cold weather gear, grab your friends and head to the great outdoors!
If you’re among the group of people who prefer to #OptOutside on any given day, first of all, welcome; you’re in good company. Second, we figure that you also care deeply about our planet, and prefer that things are done in a way to protect the environment and work towards sustainability. We’ve got you covered there, as well! When beef is 100% Grass-Fed and Grass-Finished, with cattle spending their entire lives on pasture grazing and foraging for grass the way nature intended, it’s better for a few reasons. It’s clear to see how this life is less stressful and better for the animals; but did you know how much better 100% Grass-Fed Beef is for the planet? Not only do cattle fertilize the earth while they graze, they also sequester carbon by stomping it back into the soil!
So, when you purchase Teton Waters Ranch 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sausage, Breakfast Sausage Links or Hot Dogs, know that you’re making a choice that’s better for the planet, better for the animals, and with a quality that’s better for you and your family.
While we’re on the topic of food companies that do more for the planet, let’s talk about grass-fed dairy and pasture-raised eggs. Now that you know how beneficial grass-fed beef is to the earth, make the switch to choosing grass-fed dairy, as well! Companies like Maple Hill create delicious dairy products like shredded cheese, butter, milk and yogurt from dairy cows that are all 100% grass-fed.
Our friends at Vital Farms are doing their part to transform the industry for chicken and eggs, as well! Raising their hens on open-pasture, the birds spend their days roaming about and eating just about anything they can get their beaks on – like seeds, grasses and even bugs. This life for the hens is clearly better than even the “cage-free barns” that still huddle birds together by the thousands – it also makes for better looking, better tasting, and better for you eggs!
