What is a 100% vegetarian diet?

A 100% vegetarian fed diet requires the cattle to never receive any animal by-products in their diet.

Our cattle are born and raised in the Southwestern United States.

Do Cedar River Farms cattle receive added hormones?

Cedar River Farms cattle never receive added hormones during their life.

Do Cedar River Farms cattle receive antibiotics?

Cedar River Farms is an antibiotic withdrawal program, meaning our cattle do not receive antibiotics within 300 days before their harvest.

Where do I buy Cedar River Farms?

Cedar River Farms is currently offered in retail stores and is available for foodservice. Currently, we are not able to deliver or directly to consumers at this time.

Are Cedar River Farms cattle grass fed?

Cedar River Farms cattle consume forage in their life but are grain finished. Therefore, we do not make a grass fed or finished claim. If you are interested in 100% grass fed beef, we recommend Grass Run Farms.

Is Cedar River Farms beef USDA Certified Organic?

Our program protocol does not require that our producers include organic grass and forage sources in the feeding regimen. Therefore, we do not make that claim and are not USDA Certified Organic.

Is Cedar River Farms beef GMO-free?

Our program protocol does not require that our producers include GMO-free grass in the feeding regimen. Therefore, we do not make that claim.

Are the Cedar River Farms cattle fed soy?

Our program does not require cattle to receive non-GMO feeds, such as corn and soy. Therefore, we do not make that claim.
