from Health Hero Farm
We are passionate about producing nutritious foods, treating animals humanely, and using sustainable agricultural practices. And our customers want us to balance these three goals with convenience and cost. Folks who previously didn’t like beef tell us that they enjoy our cattle’s meat because it is truly different from what is sold in grocery stores and supermarkets. And because our beef is hard-frozen immediately after butchering at USDA-inspected facilities and kept hard-frozen until purchase, it is guaranteed fresh and there is less chance of spoilage than with meat sold at grocery stores. Even if red meat is served only occasionally in your home, why not use healthy and flavorful beef? We guarantee customer satisfaction!

Whole, Half, or Mixed Quarter
The most economical option!
Price is $3.95/lb hanging weight ($4.25/lb for mixed quarter), plus butcher/processing fees. Our cattle hang at about 700 lbs; and after processing removes most of the bones, we get approximately (this is an estimate) 440 lbs of individually Cryovac-packaged meat per animal. So half a beef is approximately $1380, and a whole animal is around $2760. The processing cost for a whole animal typically runs a little over $700, so processing cost for half is about $350. As a result, you get all the cuts for less than the retail price of our ground beef. (The weights are estimates. Exact hanging weights are determined at processing.)

Customers say that our beef is the best they’ve had!

Click here for a good explanation of the various cuts of beef.
Our meat is dry-aged for 7-9 days at a USDA-inspected butcher who is also certified by Animal Welfare Approved (animalwelfareapproved.us/). Each cut is immediately vacuum-sealed by the butcher and frozen solid to retain the flavor of freshly-butchered meat. Before cooking, individual packages can be thawed quickly and safely in room-temp water.
We have recipes for all our cuts!
100% Grass-fed beef is better for you because…
- Significantly more omega-3’s compared to grain-finished beef
- 2-3 times more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
- 7 times higher beta-carotene
- 3X more vitamin E
- More B vitamins
- 1/3 less total fat
- Significantly lower omega-6 to omega-3 ratio
Our beef tastes better because…
- Grass-fed – Cattle are much healthier when they eat what they are designed to eat – grass.
- Genetics – Our heritage cattle (Angus and British White cows and a British White bull) were bred specifically to turn grass into well-marbled, high-quality meat.
- Certified organic pastures – We work hard to ensure that our pastures produce the most nutritious forage for beef cattle, and our cattle eat only certified organic feed. NO herbicides, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics or GMO products are used on our farm.
- Low-stress, Humane Handling –Lower stress results in more tender and more flavorful meat.
- Planned Grazing – Our cattle always have lots of fresh, high-quality forage; and the more they have, the more they eat (so the more marbled and flavorful their meat)!
We are committed to environmentally-friendly and sustainable practices on our farm
Our priority is to keep nutrients out of Lake Champlain and build fertile soils to sustain future generations. We and our children swim in the Lake! Our farm is conserved, and we take great care to use the most effective, environmentally-friendly, and sustainable farming practices. The University of Vermont is helping us ensure that water exiting from our property is significantly lower in nutrient (nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium) and particulate emissions than waters from conventional farms.
Compaction creates a highly impervious soil and adds significantly to surface runoff. When nutrients are applied to compacted soils, significantly more of these nutrients end up in nearby waterways. We use subsoiling, in combination with grass seeding and grazing, to break up compacted soil.
Soils with more organic matter absorb significantly more water and do a much better job of filtering/retaining nutrients. The cattle themselves play an important role in our efforts to increase soil organic matter. Both the waste products from the cattle and their trampling of plant material into the soils increase soil organic content. Water that does filter through our soils is quite clean.
There are no manure lagoons on our farm, and we have a riparian buffer strip alongside the one stream (seasonal) through our property. Only composted manure is applied on our fields in late Fall, and our feed hay is baled and wrapped. As a consequence, our operations neither emit unpleasant odors nor pollute nearby waterways (i.e., Lake Champlain)!
