Grass-Fed Livestock

The herds of grass-fed cattle raised at the Jubilee Hilltop Ranch produce only the finest all-natural angus beef. With carefully-chosen grasses for optimal nutrition, humane farming practices and rotational grazing in our pastures on the beautiful hillsides of southern Pennsylvania, we take the utmost care of our livestock. All of this preparation leads to a number of health, taste and environmental benefits that we pass along to our customers:


Health Benefits


Grass-fed beef is a leaner cut of meat that is lower in saturated fat and contains a number of health-related benefits that can contribute to a heart-healthy lifestyle. Our beef is loaded with nutrients like beta-carotene, vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, and has a number of other health benefits, including:

  • A lower fat level similar to skinless chicken
  • The lean beef from grass-fed cattle can actually help lower your LDL (Low-density lipoprotein, better know as your "bad cholesterol")
  • Higher levels of conjugated linoleum acid, a type of fat that's thought to reduce heart disease and cancer risks
  • A good source of vitamin A


Taste Benefits

Many people claim that grass-fed beef has a superior taste than meat originated from grain-fed or corn-fed cattle. This grass-fed livestock raising process typically produces a better marbled piece of beef, which means that the meat contains a number of small white flecks of white fat that creates a marbling effect. And this usually results in a better grade of meat from the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture).


Environmental Benefits


Pasture-raised cattle have a long-lasting positive impact on the local landscape and help contribute to sustaining, and even improving, the grounds where they graze. Since the Jubilee Hilltop Ranch practices rotational grazing with our cows, they help the grass grow faster and greener just by eating, and provide natural fertilizer in the process. All of this helps to contribute to our sustainable agricultural process on a local and global level.
