You may be asking, “Why grassfed?” The health benefits to consuming grassfed products are numerous. The body adapts better to the stresses it is placed under when given the right building blocks (i.e. nutrition). 100% grassfed products have the perfect balance of essential fats for the body to thrive.
We are in the business of returning to nature’s way of supplying food. All the animals are provided with a diet that their Creator designed them to eat. Grass for the cows and sheep; grass, bugs and a high quality mixture of grains for the chickens and turkeys.
The highest quality forage is grown by returning the soil to nature. Instead of relying on chemical fertilizers, we use compost to reintroduce vital nutrients to the soil. No pesticides or herbicides are used either. This, in turn, allows a hearty crop of earthworms to repopulate the soil with nutrients the natural way.

We trust that God designed His creatures with natural antibodies to ward off disease and infection when given their natural habitat to thrive. Hence, no antibiotics, hormones, steroids, or other foreign additives are given to any of the animals. You can rest assured that you are consuming 100% pure food.
To add credibility to these claims, we became certified organic in 2007 with Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA).
You can rest assured that you are consuming 100% pure food.
We also believe in the philosophy that folks should eat what is readily available. Did God design us to travel hundreds, even thousands of miles to procure our meals? No! That’s why we are thrilled to provide you a LOCAL source for high quality, nutritious food. If you aren’t able to grow your own, you have the means to know your food and know your farmer. With food from Steckler Grassfed, you can experience the satisfaction of trusting that your food is, in fact, the best you can provide your family.

Eatwild.com states, “When you choose to eat meat, eggs, and dairy products from animals raised on pasture, you are improving the welfare of the animals, helping to put an end to environmental degradation, helping small-scale ranchers and farmers make a living from the land, helping to sustain rural communities, and giving your family the healthiest possible food. It’s a win-win-win-win situation.”

The perfect balance of essential fats
for the body to thrive.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, DO states, "...if the ratio of omega 6 fats to omega 3 fats exceeds 4:1, people have more health problems. This is especially meaningful since grain-fed beef can have ratios that exceed 20:1 whereby grass-fed beef is down around 3:1..."

"...grassfed cows could help save the planet."
A TIME Magazine article reports that grassfed cows could help save the planet. "Currently, 99 percent of U.S. beef cattle live out their last months on feedlots, where they are stuffed with corn and soybeans. Much of the carbon footprint of beef comes from growing grain to feed the animals, which requires fossil-fuel-based fertilizers, pesticides, and transportation.
"...net emissions [of methane] are lower..."
Even though grass-fed cattle produce more methane than conventional ones ..., their net emissions are lower because they help the soil sequester carbon." To read the article and review Dr. Joseph Mercola's comments, click here.
