Announcing Glyphosate Residue-Free Beef

ELEN RoosterWe are excited to announce that Michigan Family Farm beef from Egeler Family Farm in Ludington, Michigan, and Zimba Farms in Deford, Michigan, has been commercially tested and determined to have undetectable levels of glyphosate, the active chemical in the common herbicide, Roundup. Zimba Farm's 97% grass fed certified organic beef is pastured on beautiful rolling hills where they eat a mix of grasses and are supplemented in the winter with grass hay, some young corn kernels, and baleage. Never given antibiotics or hormones, Egeler beef is 100% grass fed, raised on a variety of GMO free grasses with plenty of room to roam in spacious pastures. Knowing that this beef is glyphosate-residue free makes it even more appealing to your customers looking for healthy, pure, and wholesome meat!
