A natural beef product originating in Wheeler County, Oregon. The Natural beef name was born out of a desire to better reflect the focus of the organization. The goal of Painted Hills Beef is to eliminate the inconsistency in its beef product while producing natural meat of the highest quality. No added hormones or antibiotics are used while raising the cattle resulting in healthier animals.
Raising beef of this quality takes more: more time, more energy, more care. In order to grow beef that is growth hormone and antibiotic free, producers must make the commitment to keep the animals longer than generic beef. It simply takes longer for the animals to grow to the choice grade level we sell which adds cost. We believe, however, that this cost is far outweighed by the peace of mind the consumer gains.
