Drawing on a lifetime of farming experience, determination and a lot of hard work, I opened Holy Cow Grass Fed Beef in 2006. This was my American Dream come true. My goal then and to this day, is to provide affordable, high quality organic grass-fed beef directly to you, the consumer. But..., not just any beef. It had to be exceptional - just the way I would want it for myself and my family. My dream required that the livestock be raised humanely in a stress-free environment. In other words, I truly wanted them to be happy, to graze freely on lush, fresh organic grasses, I wanted them to live without worries and to be treated with respect. Nourishing and treating the herd in this way, truly affects the flavor of the beef and it just feels morally right. The result? The beef produced is tasty, tender, juicy, lean, and heart healthy.
I started this endeavor 10 years ago, and today the view from my front porch overlooks 200+ livestock grazing on irrigated organic spring mixed grasses that I've grown from seed, and I smile. I'm proud. I'm proud to say I am the breeder, grower, and certified producer of Angus / Limousin Hybrid Beef. I am Janelle Moses and I welcome you to Holy Cow Grass Fed Beef.
So who are we and what makes us unique?
Unlike many farms and beef producers, our bulls, cows and calves are all born, raised and finished on native, organic planted grasses. There is NO Corn, NO Soy, NO Wheat, No Grain of any type in their diet. Did you know some farms will give grain to their grass-fed livestock during the last 2 to 4 weeks of their life? You wont find this practice at Holy Cow Grass Fed Beef. Here they start with mama's milk and then are grass fed throughout their life - 18 months.
Assuring our herd receives the most nutritious grasses, we grow our own crops - a variety of organic grasses from organic seeds - that have NOT been genetically modified (NO GMO). We call this our Spring Mix. We plant cropland pastures at varying times throughout the year and rotate the herds to the freshest crop. This method guarantees they are receiving the most nutritional value possible.
Our herd is certified organic, meaning a third party has inspected the farm, assuring the public that we follow organic standards and that our herd is humanely cared for. Certification means - - NO Antibiotics, NO Hormones, NO Pesticides and No Synthetic Fertilizers are used.
Maintaining our free range farm at the highest standard of quality care, means our livestock IS treated humanely. Not only do they roam freely on lush organic cropland pastures, they roam as a family herd - grandparents, mama's, papa's and babies graze together. We have a happy herd that lives a stress-free life.
There are many other factors that make our beef desirable and stand out from other farms and ranches. I'll list a few of them here, but please read other pages on this website for detail: * We know the genetic background of each animal.* We know their health throughout their life since they are born on this farm.* We work with a custom butcher directly. We watching over our cattle from birth to finishes, to harvested, and the cutting and wrapping .
So what more makes us unique? Our integrity, trust, and knowledge that you will receive quality beef from Holy Cow Grass Fed Beef. The combined practices noted above (and more) assure our beef will be excellent. We refer to our cows as being High Class Cows, and we consider our beef to be the same - High Class Beef.
HOLY COW GRASS FED BEEF farm is located in the lush Yakima Valley of Central Washington. Since 1945, this property has been a cattle ranch.
