Laura Freeman took the reigns at her family farm and began the Laura’s Lean Beef company in 1985, a year when the cattle industry was struggling. Consumers had begun to shy away from beef due to concerns that it was high in fat and cholesterol.
Laura set out to find a solution to allow health conscious consumers, like herself, to continue to eat beef in good conscience. Ahead of her time, Laura’s concerns about the use of antibiotics and growth hormones to speed cattle growth were as relevant then as they are today. Laura committed not only to raising beef that was lean, but also without the use of antibiotics or added growth hormones…EVER.
Although Laura is now retired, we continue practicing the high standards that she set forth by offering healthier beef for you and your family to enjoy with peace of mind.
