Have you ordered your steaks online before?

You may be surprised at how you can get a better quality cut of meat online as cheap as in the big box store. Buying your steaks online also allows you to purchase from a farmer who cares. These farmers make sure to take the time to feed the animals a vegetarian diet like they would get in the wild. They use no hormones or antibiotics. Their identity for themselves and their farms are sustainable, earth friendly farms that care and it shows.

If you do not have the time to do your research about where your beef is coming from you can always check out the farms on the internet. Buying your meat online doesn't mean a faceless farmer that you do not know. It gives you a chance to get to know that family and finding out their core values and beliefs and making sure they line up with your own. This country needs to get back to basics and sustainable farming is one way to do that.

I love that this family farm practices crop rotation to prevent soil erosion. They also take advantage of the crop that is in season and uses those seasonal grasses to feed the animals their vegetarian diet. They raise less animals and are able to take very good care of the ones that they do have. Taking advantage of wind energy to keep some part of their ranch going just makes them look better to me. I'm so very impressed with this family farm.

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog for meat online and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.
