Belted Galloway Beef for Food Pantries
We produce all-natural pasture-raised, grain-finished Belted Galloway Beef to supply area hunger-relief agencies.
All-Natural, Pasture-Raised, Grain-Finished
Aldermere Belties are all raised on pasture and hay, then finished on grain. The habitat at Aldermere makes for happy cows and high quality beef.
Not Fed Antibiotics, No Growth Hormones
Our cattle are raised using valued “All Natural” practices, which include no fed antibiotics or added growth hormones, and are raised on our high quality pastures and finished with grain supplementation.
Beltie Beef: Lean Yet Tender.
In a nutritional analysis, Ribeye steaks from Aldermere cattle were found to have fewer calories and saturated fats compared to the USDA standard for ribeyes, but more protein, calcium, and iron. Moreover, Aldermere beef had eleven times the “conjugated linoleic acid”- and CLA is gaining reputation in the medical community as one of the premier “good fatty acids.”
New York Times food writer Heidi Julavits, upon biting into an Aldermere Beltie burger, dubbed it one of, “the most sublime hamburgers we’ve ever consumed. We have to eat leaning over our plates to keep the maximally beefy drippings from running down our wrists.”
