St. Catharine sells high-quality, consistently tender, and delicious homegrown beef. We are proud to say that our beef:
We also ensure that calves are raised on our Farm and come from our own cows (calves are considered under 20 months).
We partner with our Amish neighbors in Central Kentucky to offer fresh, farm-grown pork products.
Why choose farm-raised pork?
Of course pasture grazing is a more humane way to raise an animal, but pasture grazing is also better for you!
Farm-raised pork has lower levels of omega 6:3 fatty acids, twice the amount of vitamin E, and greater amounts of selenium than commercially-raised pork. It also has as much as three times the vitamin D of conventionally-raised pigs.
Raising pork in a pasture environment is more gentle on the earth, as waste is distributed and becomes a beneficial fertilizer for the land, rather than pooling to pollute a single area.
Finally, hogs raised on pasture rarely, if ever, need antibiotics. In a world where antibiotic resistance is becoming a threat to human health, this healthier way of raising hogs is better for all of us!
Pasture-raised chicken is higher in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). These nutrients play an important role in maintaining heart health, reducing inflammation, and improving overall well-being.
Just as important, pasture-raised chicken tastes better! Chefs say it has a more complex and distinctive, richer flavor than conventionally raised birds.
