(M)EAT FOR HEALTH
ANIMALS THAT ARE RAISED ON OPEN PASTURES ARE JUST PLAIN BETTER FOR YOUR HEALTH. IT’S A FACT.
That’s why at Belcampo Farms we raise animals the natural way. Slowly, at their pace, in wide open pastures. We create a darn good life for our animals. That healthy, natural life means our meat is chock full of organic nutrition. So when it makes it to your table—that naturally nutritious meat is more delicious and makes you healthier, too. The way it was meant to be.
WHY IS BELCAMPO SO GOOD FOR YOU?
Compared to conventionally kept animals, Belcampo’s animals are raised on pastures where they roam and graze, naturally. The health benefits abound in meat from animals raised in the humane way—the only way we’d have it.
All our meats are independently tested for purity and nutritional data—we post the updated reports every quarter directly to our website to offer you full transparency here.
Our meats are:
- Certified Organic
- Grass-Fed & Finished
- Certified Humane
Which results in these great benefits:
Pasture-raised free range meat is lower in total fat and contains more ‘good’ fats and less ‘bad’ fats. Win!
Omega-3 fatty acid has been shown to lower the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease. Our red meat has the same ratio of Omega-3:6 as wild game meat!
Alpha and conjugated linoleic acids are proven cancer fighters.
Calcium, magnesium, and potassium are more present in pasture-raised animals.
Compared to non-free-range meat, Belcampo is higher in vitamins C, B, and E.
All our meats are 3rd party tested for Omega 3:6 ratio, achieving an average of 1:1.2 compared to 1:25 for animals not fed their whole lives on grass. You can download our 3rd party tested data (updated every quarter). Read our Beef & Chicken bone broth results here. Read our Pork & Lamb results results here. Belcampo's beef has the same Omega 3:6 range you will find in wild game.
US VS THEM—SEEK THE DIFFERENCE
SEE(K) THE BELCAMPO DIFFERENCE
At Belcampo, we're all about small-farms with big impacts. That means better for the climate, better for the animals, better for the plant, and better for you.
Our cattle are pasture-raised and grass-fed, which makes our beef deliciously nutritious.
Lean & Mean
Beef from 100% grass-fed cows contains less total fats, therefore less calories.
High in amino acids that help the body build stronger muscle and cartilage tissue.
VITAMINS & ANTIOXIDANTS
In every bite you’ll get higher amounts of iron, B12, B6, A, E and more.
Omega 3s are heart healthy, and our beef averages a 1:1.2 Omega 3-to-6 ratio while conventional beef has a ratio up to 1:30!
Belcampo chickens get plenty of room to spread their wings in our green pastures. That good life is something you can taste in every bite.
Our chickens are higher in omega-3s as well as vitamins A, D, and E.
We pasture-raise our chickens, giving our chicken 20% higher protein per serving than conventional, not to mention it’s lower in total fat!
Livin’ that free-range life means our chickens are free of unnecessary antibiotics and added growth hormones.
High on the hog—that’s how Belcampo pigs live. Ranch life makes our pork some of the healthiest and tastiest you’ll ever try.
SUNNY (VITAMIN) D
Pasture-raised pork is higher in vitamin D, because most days our pigs are rolling around under the sun.
HEARTY & HEALTHY
Our pasture-raised pork has 25 times the amount of Omega-3s than conventional pork and a ratio of 2:1 of saturated to unsaturated fat.
Living a happy life translates even to taste. Healthier pigs that live a happy life make more flavorful meat.
Belcampo Farms raises a variety of heritage breeds, preserving a legacy of biodiverse farming and culture.
Free range for all, including our lamb. Grazing and roaming all their days. No convention, just tradition.
Grass-fed lamb is high in oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat associated with a lower risk of heart disease.
A significant source of omega-3 fats, which can decrease inflammation in the body.
A very good source of selenium and zinc, minerals that can protect against oxidative stress.
California's top chefs covet our lamb for its delicious, mild, and sweet (aka non-gamey!) flavor—a result of Certified-Humane handling standards and small-scale production.
