About Our Grass Fed Beef

Mr. Pearson's Grass Fed Beef comes from farms that adopt only the most stringent values, and perform the most ethical farming practices.



We at Mr. Pearson was firmly believe, that all animals deserve the right to live their lives in their most natural environments and to live happy and healthy lives. So by supplying “Grass Only” fed beef, we believe we are doing our bit to preserve the rights of cattle, and, by this, we feel that we will ultimately be supplying our customers a far superior product. So to this end, Mr. Pearson’s, has gone to enormous lengths, in researching the health benefits of eating a grass fed beef diet, and in locating farms, that adopt the most scrupulous grass fed farming practices. Years of work has gone into this, and we are now in a position where we have developed strong relationships with farms that conduct only the most ethical “grass only fed” cattle rearing practices.

Eating grass fed beef is a healthier way of eating red meat.

Grass fed beef offers many different benefits, including, nutritional, environmental, social and economic benefits. By returning to the ways that cattle were reared many years ago - by allowing cattle to eat only a grass fed diets, and allowing them to range free, behavior, that they are naturally used to - we are giving humans, and more importantly, the cattle themselves the opportunity to exist in a farhealthier environment and, to live healthier and happier lives.In this, we are recovering all the benefits that were lost to us many years ago, when the use of absurd farming practices began to be instigated. The likes of, forcing cattle to exist and feed in crowded commercial feedlots, with their concrete floors, awash with unhealthy pollutants.

There are enormous benefits to living a ‘grass fed’ meats diet

Scientists have conducted powerful, and convincing studies to prove that there is a direct correlation between the cattle’s diet and the nutritional value of the meat that goes to the consumer.

Grass only fed beef contains twice as much beta-carotene as grain fed beef.

Grass fed beef has at least 4 times of the Vitamin E, of that of grain fed beef.

Grass fed beef is far leaner, with approximately 30% less fat, than corn fed beef.

Grass fed beef is lower in calories than grain fed beef.

Grass fed beef has 2 to 4 times greater the content of omega-3 essential fatty acid levels, than grain fed beef.

Grass fed beef has a far more desirable omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, a ratio that is recognized as health promoting, than what is found in grass fed beef.

Grass fed beef has meat that supplies the richest known source of CLA's, (Conjugated Linoleic Acids). CLAs are currently thought have potent benefits in reducing cancer, atherosclerosis, onset of diabetes and body fat mass.

Animal welfare and the environment.

Cattle are far happier in a pastureenvironment; indeed, they experience far less stress, than they would in a feedlot environment.

Mr. Pearson’s grass fed beef, comes from cattle that are allowed to roam freely, socialize, rest, eat and raise their calves in a natural environment.

Our grass fed cattle are allowed to roam freely and shelter from whether in natural settings among trees and other natural shelters, and are provided straw bedding throughout the winter months.

Our grass fed beef has absolutely no history of BSE and I'm never fed any feeds that contain animal by-products and are certainly never administered antibiotics or growth hormones.

The difference between grass fed beef and corn fed beef.

It has been well established that grass fed beef is nutritious and it is now clear healthy; whereas grass and corn fed beef could be considered unhealthy. Studies have proven to show that theconsumption of grass and corn fed beef has led to an adverse affect on American health. Not only this, corn and grass fed beef have led to extremely negative environmental problems due to corn production and feedlot farming. Corn is consumed in massive quantities nowadays and corn when fed to cattle in such quantities can lead to the process becoming toxic. Corn has a very high glycemic index, and is easily converted into sugars in the body. Sugars are readily stored in the body as unhealthy saturated fats. After the end of World War II, farmers and fusing to clean started feeding corn to their cattle because it produced beef much more quickly, and in a way, where the cattle became fatter much faster. Comparatively speaking, this produced beef for the consumer much more readily, which in turn much larger profits. As the cattle became sicker on this forced diet, coupled with the fact that the cattle were living in overcrowded feedlot circumstances, farmers had to feed them antibiotics to keep them eating their feed. In the pursuit of producing cattle that were fatter, in a faster way, farmers adopted the use of growth hormones to increase their profits by even bigger margins. It is now clear, to the science of farming, that we have made a mistake of gargantuan proportions. Our health has suffered with higher rates of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Cows are what they eat, therefore, you are what you eat.

How does eating grass fed beef help with our ecology and the future of our planet?

Eating grass fed beef helps for a more sustainable manure management system. It helps with less groundwater contamination and has a much more diverse and healthy impact on ecosystems. It reduces the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides associated with corn and grain production. Eating grass fed beef reduces soil erosion and contamination associated with feedlots and grain crops. Feeling grass to cattle reduces greenhouse gases through carbon sequestration. Also, the grasses in healthy pastures help to reduce excess carbon dioxide from the air via osmosis thus increasing the oxygen values in the air, and returning the carbon to the soil. This in turn, naturally helps to fertilize the pastures naturally, without the use of synthetic systems. Land tracts set aside for grass farming provide natural wildlife habitat and farmers to produce grass fed beef, are likely to be better educated about our environment.



Frequently asked questions.

What is the difference between grass fed beef, organic beef, and natural brief?

USDA standards dictate that grass fed beef demands that the capitals only source of nutrition B Grasse or forage except for milk consumed prior to weaning. Organic beef requires that cattle are raised with feed that has not been treated with pesticides or sewage-based fertilizers, or any genetically engineered products. Also, the cattle must've never been administered antibiotics or growth hormones. Naturally produced meats, must have no added coloring or artificial ingredients, and that the beef was minimally processed. Being “Natural” beef, does not mean that it has a USDA organic standard.

What are the health benefits of grass fed beef?

Grass fed beef has higher content of lean proteins, it has less saturated fat, calories and cholesterol than corn fed beef. Grass fed beef has high levels of Omega-3 and essential fatty acids than corn fed beef. Grass fed beef has high levels of vitamin E, beta Carotene and other antioxidants. Grass fed beef has significantly high levels of iron, zinc, and B complex vitamins. It also has higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid and vaccenic acid.

What is CLA?

Conjugated linoleic acid, is a human fat component with many benefits. Some of the best natural sources of CLA are grass fed meats and dairy products. CLA's have been linked to the following benefits: increased metabolic rate, which reduces body fat and increases lean muscle mass. Lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels which reduces the likelihood of cardiovascular disease and risk of stroke. CLA's boost immune system which strengthens the internal defense system of the body to better defend against toxins, bacteria and infections. Lower insulin resistance, which helps to prevent the onset of diabetes. Reduces the risk of allergic reactions, which allows the body to function more efficiently.

What are Omega-3's

Omega threes are essential fatty acids and are necessary for human health. But the body can't make them you can only get them through food and grass fed beef is a good source of Omega-3's. Omega-3’s reduce information which may lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and arthritis. Omega-3’s also improve cognitive and behavioral functions, i.e. improving memory. It also improves energy, helps to alleviate dry skin, heart problems, circulation, mood swings and depression.

Does Mr. Pearson's supply beef that has been administered hormones or antibiotics?

None of the Beef rearing farms that Mr. Pearson’s have partnerships with administer antibiotics, hormones and certainly never feed their cattle any animal by-products, whatsoever. This certainly includes our grass fed beef line.

Is Mr. Pearson is grass fed beef safe from BSE (mad cow disease)?

Mr. Pearson's grass fed beef has never been fed anything other than grass, hay and salt. Mad cow disease has only been found in cattle that have been fed animal by-products. BSA has never been found that have been fed on an exclusively grass fed diet.
