We raise and sell Grass fed and Grass finished beef, lamb, and Organic pork!
I want to let you know about a new CSA I found in the New York Metropolitan area for pasture-raised meat. It’s called Bronx Paleo. I’ll let Grace from Bronx Paleo (pictured above) tell you all about it, and how to order. THESE are the companies we should be supporting! Local peeps, who are taking our health into their own hands. Take it away Grace:
"We work really hard to raise our animals as best as possible because we know there’s no other way. And I do the best I can to reach out to as MANY people as possible because I trust, and I know that what I am sharing with you is the best. Heres a little info on us… Chaljeri Meats raises grass-fed and finished beef, Grass fed and Grass finished lamb, and pork (we are not yet certified organic but we still raise our animals organically) in New York state. We refuse to use any hormones or other chemical growth accelerators and employ holistic planned grazing to prevent overgrazing and to ensure the maximum efficiency in water, nutrient and energy cycling. Our cattle are moved from one paddock to another as frequently as once or twice a day to ensure the quality of feed available to them and to also provide adequate time for the grass to recover before being grazed again. The Herds are out on pasture most of the year, but in winter they are fed hay and bail-age. All the cows and lamb are 100% grass-fed. In winter months they are given bail-age that is harvested right off the farm. They are finished on special second cutting hay and chopped sorghum. The result is more diversity in the pasture, better health and condition of cows, plenty of grass to share with wildlife, and a significantly longer grazing season.
Of the farm’s total pasture, each field gets broken up in to 5-10 acre parcels that are grazed for 1 day each. All the pastures have natural watering holes and access to free-choice minerals. The grasslands the cattle and lamb are raised on are not degrading, but instead are measurably improving without the use of chemicals, and excessive equipment. We constantly monitor and reevaluate the ranch in all aspects. We are adaptive, and are constantly trying to improve the land, the cattle, pork, lamb and the quality of life of all people, however connected with our operation.
Our pork while not certified organic (yet) is raised just the same. They are given a wonderful quality of life and at the moment we are actually working towards creating the same rotational grazing paddocks for our hogs. We are also working on increasing the number of heritage breeds we raise. Allowing the hogs to forage gives them better health but also creates the best and most succulent meat ever!
We’ve been asked- What is Grass finished? Well when the animals are a few months away from being sent to processing (slaughter), spend their final weight-gain stage on grass. They are allowed to just relax and eat to their content, never given any grain at any stage of their lives. Some farmers raise beef on grass, but finish them by giving them such things as grain, soy, molasses and other high calorie feed to help their animals gain weight more rapidly before slaughter. We DO NOT ever do this. This is unhealthy and completely undermines the whole process to begin with.
We offer Grass fed and Grass finished beef, Grass fed and Grass finished lamb. Organically raised pork (we are NOT yet organically certified BUT that doesn’t stop us from raising them organically). We will have pastured eggs soon, just waiting on the hens to decide when they will start laying. They too are pastured raised, they are allowed to roam freely, to forage for what ever bugs and vegetation they want. As a result we have happy, content hens.
