Organic Beef

What's the malarkey surrounding organic beef all about then you ask? Seeing as we (Buyacow.uk), alongside our network of heroic British farmers, are certified by the Soil Assoiciation to sell organic beef, it means we've become quite the experts on the strict regulations known as the ‘organic standards’ that all organic producers must abide by. To give you a clear but concise description of organic beef, here's a bulletpoint list that the awesome Soil Association put together to describe the differences between Organic and Non-organic foods:

  • “Artificial chemical fertilisers are prohibited – instead organic farmers develop a healthy, fertile soil by growing and rotating a mixture of crops, adding organic matter such as compost or manure and using clover to fix nitrogen from the atmosphere
  • Pesticides are severely restricted – instead organic farmers develop nutrient-rich soil to grow strong, healthy crops and encourage wildlife to help control pests and disease.
  • Animal welfare is at the heart of the system and a truly free-range life for farm animals is guaranteed
  • A diversity of crops and animals are raised on the farm and rotated around the farm over several seasons, including fallow periods. This mixed farming approach helps break cycles of pests and disease and builds fertility in the soil
  • The routine use of drugs, antibiotics and wormers is banned – instead the farmer will use preventative methods, like moving animals to fresh pasture and keeping smaller herd and flock sizes
  • Genetically modified (GM) crops and ingredients are banned"

Why does Organic Beef sometimes cost more?

The premium that is paid for organic beef usually derives from the certainty consumers like yourself get in knowing — through certified bodies — that special care has been taken to throughout the farming process to protect the environment, surrounding wildlife, animal welfare and your health! that being said, our meat-boxes beat the prices of those offered elsewhere — our price comparison proves it!
