Weatherbury Farm Grass Fed & Grass Finished Beef
Better for you; Better for the environment
Better for you; Better for the environment
Not only is Weatherbury grass fed beef affordable (the cost per pound is less than the supermarket cost of grass fed hamburger), but it is also delicious and healthy.
Weatherbury’s cows eat lush certified organic grass from April to December, moving to a new pasture every couple of days. During the winter, they eat certified organic hay.
Of course, there are no pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones or antibiotics.
And since Weatherbury Farm is local – you pick up your beef at the farm, there are no worries about the origin of the beef.
Weatherbury’s herd philosophy makes our grass fed beef unique.
Weatherbury Farm has been selling grass fed beef since 2007. With the increased popularity of grass fed meats, more farms have entered the market. Not all aspire to the exacting standards that Weatherbury Farm sets for itself and our customers expect.
There are a number of considerations when purchasing grass fed beef, here’s an overview of Weatherbury’s Grass Fed Farming Practices:
1. Cows are rotationally grazed on certified organic grass
2. Beef is 100% Grass Fed and Grass Finished. No grain is fed.
3. All calves are born and raised on the farm.
4. No Fillers — commercial beef contains 10% saline and has wheat gluten fillers
5. No hormones or antibiotics.
Weatherbury Farm is a family owned beef and sheep farm located southwest of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Certified organic grains which are milled into flour are also raised.) After 20 years of a cow-calf operation we changed our operation in 2007 to producing grass fed beef for sale directly to the consumer. In 2008, we began offering grass fed lamb for sale.
In 2009, Weatherbury Farm’s pastures, hay lands and crop lands were certified organic. However, we have been farming without herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers since 1988. Our cows and sheep eat certified organic grass & hay and are bedded on certified organic straw. They receive no artificial steroids, growth hormones or antibiotics. As a certified organic farm, we do not use pesticides or herbicides.
In 2012, Weatherbury Farm was awarded PCO’s (Pennsylvania Certified Organic) sustainability Award. Additionally in July 2017, the farm achieved a gold SWPA Sustainable Small Business Designation. ( See more information on these awards.)
When we began our grass fed adventure, we were really excited about the health benefits of grass fed beef and the environmental benefits of rotational grazing; shortly thereafter however, taste and tenderness shot to the top of our list. We have had great reports from our customers on both the beef and lamb; many of our orders each year are from satisfied customers (from 2007 through 2020).
