Unveiling the Magic of Grass-Fed Beef: Harmonizing with Nature for a Healthier Lifestyle.


In the realm of Beef, not all cuts are created equal. Enter the fascinating world of 100% Pasture Raised Grass-fed beef, where the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) grades take a back seat to the natural rhythms of lush pastures. Join us on a journey to Kaua'i, where our Ranch takes a unique approach to Raising Cattle, letting them Roam Freely and Feast on Green Grassy Tropical Pastures until they're ready for harvest.

The Essence of True Grass-Fed Living

Our Cattle lead a Leisurely Life, self-nourishing on a diet that is exclusively grass. This is a far cry from conventional beef operations where seasons, droughts, and frost dictate the need for supplementary grains. Here on Kaua'i, Nature Takes the Lead, allowing our animals to truly be 100% Pasture Grass-fed and Grass-finished. No grain finishes or grass-type byproducts – just the pure goodness of nature.

The Distinction: Grass-Fed vs. Grain-Fed


100% Pasture Grass-fed beef stands apart in more ways than one. While it takes six to 12 months longer for these animals to reach market weight, the extra time spent on a diet of pure grass contributes to a leaner and more nutrient-dense meat. The benefits extend beyond the visible marbling in a rib-eye steak; it's about the health-conscious choices we make in what we consume.

Nutritional Wonders of Grass-Fed Beef

Omega-3 Fatty Acids:

100% Pasture Grass-fed beef takes the lead in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, and depression.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA):

This fatty acid, thought to have anti-cancer properties, is found in higher concentrations in 100% Pasture Raised Grass-fed Beef compared to its grain-fed counterpart.


Grass-fed beef is rich in Beta-Carotene and Vitamin E, providing a natural boost of Antioxidants.

Nutrient Density:

The nutrient profile of 100% Pasture Raised Grass-fed beef includes higher amounts of Lutein, Beta-Carotene, CLA, and Omega-3 fats compared to conventional beef.

Beyond the Nutritional Spectrum

100% Pasture Raised Grass-fed beef is not just about numbers on a nutritional label; it's a holistic approach to healthier living.


Essential electrolytes like Potassium, Magnesium, and Sodium are naturally present in 100% Pasture Raised Grass-fed Beef.

Heart Health:

Clinical evidence suggests a decreased risk of heart disease with increased consumption of CLA, a nutrient abundant in grass-fed beef.

Nutrient Composition:

One serving of grass-fed strip steak offers a treasure trove of essential nutrients, including protein, vitamins, and minerals.

Labor Intensive but Worth It

In this journey called life, we encounter countless highs and lows that shape our character. Often, when we strive to do what is right and fight for our purpose, it may not make sense to others. But then, something incredible happens. We find our people who believe in us and recognize our relentless efforts. I am immensely grateful to the Kauai Credit Union for sponsoring this inspiring video, skillfully crafted by the talented Cliff at Mello Films. And to all of you, thank you for accompanying me on this path. It's not easy, but it's undeniably worth it.

8 Reasons why should you make Beef Bone Broth a part of your lifestyle (with recipe!)

I have been told stories about our family history here in Kaua’i - all kinds of stories that are passed on through the generations. They say a lot about the importance of family and community, and the importance of overall health to support everything we do – especially on the ranch. This is a story about a literal and symbolic glue that is found on the ranch that has helped generations for thousands of years to hold those two important things together, and it still holds true today. And that is bone broth.
