Why did Zion's Farm choose to produce natural meat?
Zion's Farm has chosen the all natural process because of the balance it provides. We want the animal
to be 100% healthy and parasite-free. When you put a fence around a grazing animal, he can't search
for what he needs and is more likely to contract a parasite, which isn't what we want for our animals
or our meat. We aim to work with nature, not against it, so we do use antibiotics, when needed - which
is rare. Our animals are treated on a case-by-case basis, never given artificial hormones and we are
careful not to overgraze.
What's the difference between natural and organic meat?
Organic Meat means the meat has never received antibiotics, artificial hormones. Natural may have
received some of either of those, but our natural products receive very limited antibiotics and absolutely
no added hormones.
