Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished Beef


At Stony Pond Farm, we challenge conventional agricultural wisdom by raising cattle on organic, well-managed pastures. By utilizing the assets of the American Milking Devon, we farm for the health and well being of the planet, and for the people who eat our food.

Our customers are discovering the unique flavors and health benefits of beef from cattle that spend their entire lives consuming nutrient-rich forage—grazing on lush pasture or consuming organic nutrient-dense grass hay from our farm fields in an open-air, deep-bedded pack barn.

Our cows spend their days peacefully eating what nature designed them to eat. They have ample room to roam, exercise, play, and relax. Our cattle receive a proper diet of cultivated grasses and native browse. Their feed is never supplemented with the antibiotics, feedstuffs, and growth hormones routinely used on cattle that are forced to live and grow in crowded, stressful conditions.

When you eat pasture-raised meats from our farm, you can be sure that you are nurturing your body with food that enhances your well being and promotes good health.

Compare the difference between grass-finished and conventional grain-finished beef:

  • Richer in flavor
  • Naturally lean—lower in fat and calories
  • Nutritious—higher in vitamins A and E, omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid or CLAs (good fats)
  • Safer for you and your family—free of antibiotics, animal-by-products, and growth hormones.

According to research presented by Jo Robinson, author of Pasture Perfect and editor of Eatwild.com, meats from grass-fed cattle are lower in total fat (approximately the same as skinless chicken breast, wild deer, and elk). They are also higher in omega-3 fatty acids, regarded by health experts as “good fats” or “heart healthy”. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), another fatty acid found in grass-fed beef, has shown promise in fighting tumors and breast cancer in laboratory tests.

From our popular ground beef and well-marbled steaks to our flavorful roasts, Stony Pond Farm produces meat you can feel good about feeding yourself and your family.
