Bergenblick Farm is located just outside of State College, PA in Linden Hall. Our Scottish Highland Cattle never receive any antibiotics or hormones and our lush pastures are never sprayed with herbicides or pesticides. Our goal is to produce exceptionally delicious beef that is raised in the healthiest way possible for you, for the cattle, and for the land.
Grass fed beef has many benefits over meat that spent the last few months of its life in a feedlot.
It’s better for the cattle. Grass fed and finished cattle such as ours get to eat what they are designed to eat and live how and where they are meant to live for all of their days. Most cattle in our country spend the last few months of their lives in crowded feedlots, eating mostly corn-based feeds, which as Michael Pollan puts it, “wreaks considerable havoc on bovine digestion,” necessitating the regular use of antibiotics. Pastured cattle, on the other hand, are healthier, require fewer, if any, antibiotics, experience less stress over their lives, and are able to exhibit their range of natural behaviors.
We sell lean hamburger, steaks and roasts by the pound as well as variety packs in quantities as small as 12 pounds and as great as 96 lbs. The variety packs include a mix of all cuts: half burger, half steaks, roasts, stew meat, etc. Organ meats can be included by request. (more…)
