Why Brylee Meat?


  

Grass-fed Beef

The key to producing healthy grass-fed beef of the highest quality is to have healthy animals living off healthy land.

Our animals never come into contact with any hormones or antibiotics.

We graze our beef on a rotational grazing system. Moving our animals every 4 hours to new paddock of pasture, ensuring they get optimal variety and never eat more of the plant than needed. This system allows our animals to eat the top part of every plant, leaving enough grass behind to let the plants regrow in time for the next rotation.

We use our animals to make our land better by having them “prune” the plants and sequestering the carbon with every bite and step they take.

This system prolongs our grazing season, allowing our animals to be on pasture for longer.

The only way we envision livestock agriculture is when the land and the animals are sustainably managed by working in harmony with nature.

Grass-fed Lamb

Our lamb is exclusively grass-fed. They are not fed any grain, and have never come into contact with hormones or antibiotics. We have Dorpers and Katahdins sheep. Both breeds are hair sheep (they grow wool in the winter to keep warm and shed it themselves in the spring). 

We chose these breeds because of their ability to grow on pasture, their meat quality and their motherly instincts. Their exclusive grass diet allows for a lean meat with a pronounced lamb flavor.

We use a rotational grazing system for our sheep, moving them once a day to a new paddock of grass. Doing this, allows our sheep to have variety and an optimal choice of grass while diminishing the risks of contact with worms and parasites to keep our livestock healthy and growing. 

We keep our lambs until they are 14 months old, allowing for more growth on pasture and more flavor.
