Getting to the Meat of the Issue

  • Why is it important to buy meat from vetted sources?
    Food safety: Meat that has not been produced or processed properly can contain harmful bacteria or pathogens that can cause foodborne illness. By buying meat from vetted sources, you can ensure that the meat has been produced, handled, and processed in a safe and sanitary manner. Animal welfare: Knowing the source of your meat can also help ensure that the animals have been treated humanely and have not been subjected to inhumane practices such as overcrowding or confinement. Environmental impact: Meat production can have a significant environmental impact, including contributing to greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution. By buying meat from vetted sources that use sustainable farming practices, you can help reduce the environmental impact of your meat consumption. Quality and taste: Meat from vetted sources that use high-quality production methods and feed can result in meat that is of higher quality and taste better.
  • What are the health benefits to farm-to-table meats?
    Higher nutrient density: Pasture-raised animals tend to have higher levels of essential nutrients such as vitamins A and E, omega-3 fatty acids, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which can support heart health, brain function, and immune function. Lower risk of antibiotic resistance: Our farmers and ranchers' meat is tested and hormone free when it hits your table. Lower exposure to hormones and synthetic chemicals: Conventionally raised animals may be given hormones or synthetic chemicals to promote growth or prevent disease, which can end up in the meat. Drover meat is free from these synthetic chemicals. Better animal welfare: Our meat is produced in a more humane and sustainable manner, with animals having access to pasture, fresh air, and a natural diet. This can lead to healthier animals and better quality meat. Supporting local agriculture: By choosing Drover, you are supporting local farmers and ranchers food systems, which can have positive impacts on the environment, the local economy, and your community's health.
  • Is it worth the cost to buy local, farm-to-table meat?
    Health benefits: Drover only offers the highest qualoty meat, which is often higher in essential nutrients, lower in synthetic chemicals, and produced in a more humane and sustainable manner. If you prioritize these health benefits, then the higher cost is worth it. Environmental impact: Conventionally raised meat production can have a significant environmental impact, including contributing to greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution. If you prioritize reducing your environmental impact, then buying farm-to-table meat from sustainable sources may be worth the cost for you. Animal welfare: Drover meat is often produced in a more humane and sustainable manner, with animals having access to pasture, fresh air, and a natural diet. If you prioritize animal welfare, then the higher cost may be worth it for you. Supporting local agriculture: By buying Drover meat, you are supporting local farmers and food systems, which can have positive impacts on the environment, the local economy, and your community's health. If you prioritize supporting local agriculture and the local economy, then the higher cost may be worth it for you. Budget: Our meat is generally more expensive than conventionally raised meat due to the higher cost of production and the smaller scale of operations. If you have a limited budget, then the higher cost may not be worth it for you.
