Our cooperative is devoted to producing a healthy, leaner beef alternative. Golden beef are raised without the addition of growth promoting hormones or antibiotics.
Golden Beef is raised on forages such as pasture, hay and silage.
Since no grain is fed to Golden Beef animals, there is no impact on the use of grain for human food and shipping of fee is eliminated therefor reducing the consumption of fossil fuels.
We were lucky to find some Golden Beef at the Delaney Bay Cheese Market here in North Bay and, to try it out, got some shanks and some ground beef. What a great experience: The meat is leaner than conventional beef and tasted different. Since it is from younger animals it is also more tender.
I will certainly go back and get some more in the future. Cooking needs to be adjusted to the difference in fat-content and tenderness.
I invite you to go and try it out - I am sure that you will appreciate the difference.
