Zimba Organic Beef Steers
Zimba Organic Beef Steers: Ed and Melanie Zimba are relative newcomers to Eat Local Eat Natural. We are pleased to have been working with them for about 18 months. We were out in the thumb area picking up a load of organic potatoes when we spotted an “Organic Beef For Sale” sign on the side of the road. We met Ed and Melanie, and as they say, the rest is history.
Ludington, MI: Ed and Melanie own a several hundred-acre farm in Deford, Michigan that has been in their family since 1950.
Production Practices: 97% grass-fed, the steers are pastured on beautiful rolling hills where they eat a mix of grasses. They are supplemented in the winter with grass hay, corn grasses, some young corn kernels, and baleage — organic hay that is stored and wrapped while wet which provides a significantly higher protein content.
Certified Organic & Humane: Zimba Organic Beef Steers are certified 100% organic and GMO-free. Their farm also practices humane animal welfare and is Validus Certified. The steers are processed in a facility that is certified organic. And did we mention, the beef is delicious!
Cuts Available: Enjoy a wide selection of individual cuts including steaks, roasts, short ribs, ground beef, liver, and soup bones
