Unlike most cattle, Sage Mountain Beef steers get to feast on an organic "salad bar buffet" of fresh watermelon, eggplant, onion, potatoe, tomato, and butternut squash plants, alfalfa, wheat grasses and other forages.
What we refer to as "green-fed".
The result is beef that is healthy and nutritious, with a flavor that can't be matched by any other cattle growers.
Sage Mountain Beef provides an excellent source of protein, vitamin B12, selenium, zinc, iron, phosphorus and other B vitamins without the concern for pesticide, hormone and antibiotic residues that may be found in other meats.
Our Green-Fed beef contains fewer Omega-6 fatty acids and saturated fat, more of the healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, and healthy poly/mono-unsaturates as well as beta-carotene and CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), an essential fatty acid.
A familiar face to farmers’ market shoppers in San Diego is Phil Noble. "Farmer Phil" has been raising cattle for about nine years for family and friends. Farmer Phil has also become "Rancher Phil" by launching Sage Mountain Beef CSA, San Diego's premiere and only Green-Fed™ beef CSA and store.
If you knew more about what it takes to be a Farmer and/or Rancher, you would revere your local Farmers as "heroes" in the modern food revolution.
For those of you that are not aware of the challenges of being a Farmer, perhaps this video will help to enlighten you (it gives a whole new meaning to the words, "support your local Farmer"):
An organic "salad bar" for cows.
Unlike most cattle, Sage Mountain Beef Steers get to graze on organic watermelon and butternut squash plants, alfalfa, wheat grasses and other forages. The result is beef that is healthy and nutritious, with flavor and tenderness that can't be beat by most cattle growers.
Always sustainable, always moving forward.
For years, Sage Mountain Beef has brought the organic "salad bar" to the Steers by the tractor load. The next logical step in their beef operation evolution was to take the the Steers to the organic "salad bar" buffet by using portable electric fencing.
After the animals have finished grazing, the fields are then disced and re-planted. This is known as "landscape healing". "Polyface", sustainable and amazing, that's Sage Mountain Beef.
