Here at Burbick Farms we are concerned about the quality of your beef product. In this modern day and age, care and attention is not given to the process of raising and butchering cattle to achieve the best quality flavor and tenderness. We go the extra mile to achieve consistent taste and tenderness with the use of breeding, feed and processing.
Our goal is breeding cattle that are exceptional both in performance and quality. We raise all Black Angus crossed cattle. Over the years we have been able to select cow families that have the qualities we find best and are good producers of high-quality beef.
To achieve the consistent taste and tenderness we strive for at Burbick Farms, we put a lot of care into our feed. Most of the feed is grown by us on our farm so we can assure its quality. Our cattle are fed grass, grass-hay, corn and oats. Timing is important in the feeding process. We have a diet plan that keeps the cattle at a steady growth then add in the oats at the end to build a nice balance of beef and fat.
- Each package is USDA inspected
- Proprietary Black Angus genetics, some of the best in the industry, serve as the benchmark of quality for our program
- The humane treatment of our cattle helps to produce superior quality beef
- Cattle sourced from Black Angus genetics and verifiable Black Angus genetics documented through our rancher partners
- Corn-based feed ration produces well-marbled, tender beef
- State of the Art local processing
We work closely with our local processing plants to ensure the best cuts of beef are achieved. All our beef are dry-aged for 18-21 days prior to processing. The procedure changes beef by two means. Initially, moisture is evaporated from the muscle tissue. This results in a higher concentration of beef flavor and taste. Next, the beef's organic enzymes breakdown the connective tissue within the muscle, which results in much more tender beef. Our ground beef is 80%/20% lean. All Burbick Farms beef is USDA inspected by the processor. Your cuts are vacuum sealed and are good for up to one year in your freezer.
An important advantage of raising animals on pasture is the fact that their goods are much healthier for you. As an example, in contrast to feedlot beef, beef from grass-fed beef, bison, lamb and goats has a smaller amount of overall fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories. Additionally, it has more vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and numerous health-promoting fats, such as omega-3 essential fatty acids and "conjugated linoleic acid," or CLA.
