Twin Spruce Farm raises Belted Galloway cattle, known for their hearty nature and high quality beef production. Our 70-acre farm located in the Hudson Valley is committed to producing all natural, grassfed beef. Our cows thrive on an all grass diet while rotationally grazing on our acreage during the spring, summer and fall. In the winter months they dine on locally sourced baleage.
The Belted Galloway is an extremely hardy heritage beef breed of cattle, originating from Scotland. "Belties" are excellent foragers and efficient feed converters, making them highly suitable as a grassfed beef producer. Their meat is not only well-marbled and known to be considerably low in saturated fat content, but it tastes good too.
Grassfed meat has about the same amount of fat as skinless chicken or wild deer and is low in calories.
Although grassfed meat is low in "bad" fat (including saturated fat), it gives you from two to six times more of a type of "good" in the form of omega-3 fatty acids.
The meat and milk from grassfed cows are the richest known source of another type of good fat called conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA. Studies have shown CLA can greatly reduce tumor growth in cancer.
