Mindful Meats prides themselves in sourcing dual purpose animals, meaning the animal has been raised for more than just one purpose. Their cows live long healthy lives as organic pasture raised dairy cows, and at the end of their lives provide organic beef. One cow provides an average of over 80,000 pounds of food during her lifetime, including milk, cream, butter, cheese, ice cream, and beef, as opposed to their counterpart the beef animal that provides only about 600 pounds of beef during in total. Mindful Meat’s cows are handled humanely throughout their life and are deeply loved and cared for.
