SlantShack’s 100% Grass-Fed Beef
SlantShack Jerky is proud to offer beef jerky made from 100% Grass-Fed Cattle lovingly raised by Vermont Highland Cattle Company and other local Vermont and New York farmers.

Great beef is the result of a complex combination of factors including breed, feed, care and age. What makes Vermont Highland Cattle Company beef special is the attention paid to all the details that help achieve great taste. Highland cattle, originally from Northern Scotland, are one of the oldest beef breeds. They have evolved to produce naturally lean, tender beef without hormones or growth stimulants.

Vermont Highland Cattle Company’s cows enjoy 100% pasture grass, and never receive growth-promoting antibiotics or hormones. They treat their cattle with dignity and respect, and ranch managers do whatever is necessary to reduce the amount of stress in the animals’ day-to-day lives.

Benefits of Grass-Fed Beef:
More Nutritious While most beef cows consume an unnatural diet of grain for a portion of their lives, grass-fed cows eat only grass, as cows evolved to do. The seeds and nutrients they feed on result in healthy and delicious meat. Some research suggests grass-fed beef has as much as 10 times more beta-carotene, three times more Vitamin E and three-times more omega-3 fatty acids as a result.
More Humane Scientists haven't quantified the benefits of clean water, fresh air and freedom to roam, but it all adds up to a happier, healthier herd.
More Tasty Meat takes on distinct flavors based on terrain, weather, soil, and water. This is the way beef is supposed to taste.
Less Wasteful It takes a lot of land to raise beef naturally. By rotating the animals through various pastures through the seasons, ranchers preserve native biodiversity, improve soil fertility, and eliminate the waste-management issues associated with confined animal feedlots (a major source of water pollution at conventional farms).
