Is Nimitz Beef Organic?
The process for producing Nimitz Beef is very close to organic however, we are not a certified organic ranch so the product cannot be classified as such.
What is the difference between organic and grass fed?
Organic simply means that all the organic matter that the animal is fed is never exposed to chemicals and the grains and forages that they consumer are not genetically modified organisms. Organic animals can still be finished in feed lots and consume a high grain diet that results in a less healthy animals and beef product for the consumer. It more specifies that the animals never receive antibiotics or hormones. Grass fed as we pursue at Nimitz Beef means that the animals eat their natural diets before being processed. Consisting of natural grasses and forages, none of our land is sprayed with chemicals so our animals eat largely an organic diet. The animals are never exposed to hormones and are only given antibiotics if they are injured or become sick. By grass feeding our animals we produce a healthier product that is also safer from e. coli contamination.
How is Nimitz Beef packaged?
The beef is packed and shipped in insulated cardboard boxes with cold packs. It is prepared to stay cold for approximately 24 hours. Upon receiving it is recommended that the beef is frozen if it is not going to be consumed in a timely manner.
How does the beef get to the customer? We work to deliver along our shipping route approxiamtely once every two or three weeks as outlined under the shipping info page.
