Grass-Fed Beef from Ironstone Spring Farm

Ironstone Spring Farm is taking orders for all-natural, grass-fed beef, with sizes ranging from a whole portion to a one-sixteenth portion. The beef is processed at a local United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-certified processor, cut to customer specifications, individually packaged and labeled.

All-natural, grass-fed beef is lower in fat than grain-fed beef and contains omega-3 fatty acids that may aid in preventing heart disease and diabetes. It is also high in CoQ10, an enzyme needed for proper heart function, and a powerful antioxidant, and contains betacarotene, an antioxidant that helps with immune function.

“All of our beef cattle are raised free of hormones, antibiotics and pesticides, where they are humanely treated and have free range to graze most of the year on our 85 acres of all-natural pasture,” explains owner Liz Martin. “Sheds are provided for them to go into at their leisure when there is inclement weather. When it snows, they are given all-natural grass hay, the majority of it having been harvested from our pastures.”

Facilities are available to rent for special events, as well as equine boarding. 

Location: 2856 Charlestown Rd., Lancaster. For more information, call 717-575-0110, email Liz@IronstoneSpringFarm.com or visit IronstoneSpringFarm.com.
