HOW DOES GRASS-FED BEEF AFFECT JERKY?
The taste difference
Grass-fed beef produces a little bit stronger of a beef flavor than conventional beef. We also don’t cake on our marinades to our jerky like many other brands, which leaves a better all-around flavor and keeps the integrity of the beef in tact.
The texture difference
Cows raised on grass pastures don’t produce a huge difference in texture, other than being leaner overall. However, grass-fed beef jerky does not have a “pressed” or “processed” texture that some lower quality, corn-fed beef, can have.
The cost difference
Grass-fed beef jerky is more expensive for the simple fact that grass-fed beef in general is more expensive. We hope as more companies switch to grass-fed beef then the cost will go down and we can transfer those savings to you.
