Angus Beef Breeds
How does our beef get so tender and juicy? It begins with our choice of breeds, Angus Beef Breeds, which produce delectable, juicy beef. We select beef with an eye for grass based genetics which help ensure the animal grows well and produces the highest quality meat on a grass diet.
We here at Snug Valley Farm focus on utilizing our natural grasses here on the farm to the highest potential. To do this, our beef are moved to fresh grass every day, all grazing season long. By moving beef to fresh grass each day, we allow the animals to have a positive impact on the grass and soil. With daily moves of the herd, the grass and has at least 30 days of rest before the it gets grazed again, providing the time for the plant to regrow and restock itself with nutrients.
We buy our young beef animals from producers that share our philosophy and commitment to grass fed beef. Our focus is on genetics that predispose the beef animal to being successful on a full diet of grass and forage, producing the most tender, flavorful, and well marbled meat possible.
During the non-grazing winter months, our beef are housed in a bedded pack barn, wood chip loafing yard, and a covered feed barn. This facility provides a comfortable and dry place for the beef to lay down in, an outdoor yard to let them soak up as much sun as possible, and a covered feed alley to let them eat hay while remaining dry. We typically have our beef in this set up from early December to early May when the grass starts growing again..
Throughout their 12-16 months at Snug Valley, our beef are fed green grass in summer and our own hay in winter. We provide mineral salts and kelp supplements year round, which keeps our steers healthy without feeding antibiotics.
We have a large selection of cuts for retail and wholesale. Special requests are also welcome. All of our grass-fed beef is grass-finished and tasty.
