When it comes to recipes with ground meat, it is always a good idea to use good quality meat. You might make a trip to your local butcher, or you might try choosing some certified organic meat or some grass fed beef. When you are shopping for which ground meat to buy, you will come across several choices from conventional, free-range and certified organic ground. Certified organic meat has to come from a production system or farm that is fully verifiable. That means that information is collected on the each of the animals history in the program. This animal history includes information such as veterinary care, and what the animal is fed. For beef to be certified as organic, all of the cattle should be born and raised on certified organic pasture which is a process in itself. All of the certified organic cattle do not receive any antibiotics nor do they ever receive any growth-promoting hormones. Certified organic cattle only eat certified organic grains, with corn considered to be a grain along with grasses. The cows must also have unrestricted access to the outdoors. Certified organic ground beef ensures that the meat you are buying comes from happy cows who were fed a healthy diet of organic grains and grasses, and was able to have outdoor access and fresh air. Buying organic beef is something you can feel good about when eating the meat. Free range grass fed beef ensures that the cows are not fed with corn or soy based diet. Free range beef is beef that has been raised on grass pasture. The cows have a diet full of nutrient-rich grasses and pasture forage. Hopefully, the cows have been able to get plenty of outdoor time to graze and get some fresh air. When you eat beef that comes from happy certified organic cows, you can feel better about what you eat. Purchasing meat that has been raised mindfully is good for both the animal and the environment. With the popularity of organic meat and grass fed meat increasing, more and more farms across the country are becoming certified organic.
