WHY CHOOSE OUR BEEF ?
Our cows are locally and sustainably raised here in Arizona. No factories, no feedlots, no industry. They are truly organic, to provide a healthier and more flavorful cut of meat for you and your family. We never use antibiotics or hormones to grow our beef. We use only locally sourced grains and grasses.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BLACK ANGUS AND GOLDEN ANGUS™ BEEF?
For years Black Angus has been touted as on of the top breeds of American Beef. We at Moon River Beef have taken Black Angus to the next level with a unique crossbreed of Angus which has breed, the confirmation of which has been adopted to the high cliffs and valleys surrounding the Verde River. Golden Angus has a different and unique flavor profile and higher marbling, which makes it more flavorful, tender and more tasty than your average cut of Black Angus beef.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GRASS FED /GRAIN FINISH AND PURELY GRASS FED BEEF?
Grain finish beef starts its life as grass-fed until the last few months during which it is fed a mix of locally sourced grains, grasses, and seed mixtures. This mixture changes the marbling profile of the beef from a yellower thin fat to a robust white fat with enriched tenderness. Grass-fed has a gamier and more earthy taste while grain finish has a sweeter more classic flavor profile. Both are available to order from Moon River Beef
WHY SHOULD I BUY YOUR POULTRY?
Our poultry is never in a cage. It lives its life free to roam and roost on our ranch amidst our fields of native grasses, pastures of cows and other farm animals. This allows them to eat a heathy and all natural and organic diet. They are never fed hormones or antibiotics.
