Grass-Fed & Finished Meat: Raised The Right Way
All of our bison, elk, lamb and wild boar meat is raised essentially wild, free-roaming in nature with very little handling. When animals live the way nature intended, they eat naturally varied diets, grazing and foraging plants that are rich with vitamin D from the sun. They enjoy free-range of the land and do as exactly as they please, living in contentment and free of stress. These animals are strong, healthy and robust with that special quality that only nature can produce. Compared with domesticated animals raised in factory farming environments, it’s easy to see why our meat has so much to offer health-wise.
Domestic cattle and pigs live in fear and are kept in stagnant, filthy living conditions. The animals are crowded together indoors without fresh air, sunlight and room to roam. They’re fed grain-based diets and pumped full of antibiotics, hormones and other chemicals. These farming practices are terrible for the environment, extremely inhumane for the animals and toxic for the health of those that consume these meats. When it comes to choosing meat for your family this holiday, it’s easy to see why ordering from Beck & Bulow is the right choice.
Burgers are one of the most universally loved, easy and satisfying summertime cookout items. However, when it comes to burgers made from grain-fed meat, there are many health drawbacks. Lucky for you, we’ve got a variety of heart-healthy ground meats that make unbelievable burgers.

What’s more, our best-selling wild boar bacon is a great health-conscious addition to take burgers to the next level.

Grass-fed lamb is incredibly mineral rich and provides high amounts of zinc, selenium, phosphorus, and iron. It is one of the only foods containing high levels of the amino acid compound L-Carnosine.
