Kentucky Natural Grass Fed Beef
One Cow Farm
At One Cow Farm our Angus and Angus/Hereford calves are fortunate enough to benefit from a diet of nutritious bluegrass in the heart of Central Kentucky . Calves are allowed to forage and graze on pasture their entire lives and will never see a feedlot. For handling purposes, they receive a small treat-portion of sweet feed with diatomaceous earth, a natural dewormer. They are raised the way nature intended them to be raised, free from growth implants, steroids and hormones.
It’s rumored that dense, emerald green, bluegrass specifically found in Kentucky pastures enhances the health of our famous thoroughbred racehorses, and bestows upon them an athleticism that sets them apart from the rest. If you are thinking about going natural, why not try bluegrass natural grass fed beef for the best beef possible?
We believe bluegrass produces healthy, robust cows, as well.
Kentucky Grass Fed Beef is Better
Here at One Cow Farm, we believe that consumers should take an active role in educating themselves about the source of their foods. They should take advantage of the right to know where their food comes from, how it was raised, and how it was processed. Our farm guarantees that the beef each customer purchases comes from a single cow; hence our name.
When you purchase beef from One Cow Farm, you are buying a yearling Angus with a live weight between 800 to 1,000 lbs. that has been naturally raised and finished on pasture grass, without exposure to hormones and steroids. We even choose diatomaceous earth to worm our cows instead of chemical dewormers. Our Angus beef have higher levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin E, Beta carotene, Linoleic acid, Vaccenic acid and antioxidants than their feedlot counterparts. Our beef also has increased levels of iron, zinc and B complex vitamins and have less saturated fat and cholesterol.
Why Marksbury Slaughterhouse?
Dedication to raising our calves humanely influenced us to choose Marksbury Farm to handle the slaughtering and processing of our naturally raised Angus. Its owner and staff are committed to treating every animal that goes through their slaughterhouse humanely. It is a known fact that a stress-free environment during the slaughtering process is crucial in achieving very tender, high quality beef. Glycogen which is present in the muscle is depleted when a cow is stressed. Glycogen which is converted to lactic acid is necessary to produce the flavor, tenderness and color that quality beef should have.
Marksbury Farm employs a 14 day-dry-aging process that produces very flavorful tender beef, but a 21 day aging process is also optional. The Standard Cut consists of 1/3 roasts, 1/3 steaks and 1/3 hamburger meat. Soup bones, ox tail and other cuts can also be requested with the order.
The following is a list of roasts and steaks that come with the Standard Cut:
- Chuck & Shoulder Roasts, Boneless Rib Eye Steaks, Boneless Round Steak
- Whole Brisket ,Flank & Skirt Steaks, Rump & Sirloin Tip Roasts
- Cross Cut Shanks, T-bone & Porterhouse Steaks, Bone-in Sirloin Steaks
