Dey Dey’s Best Beef Ever

2 May

I don’t eat beef very often, but when I do I buy it from Dey Dey. John “Dey Dey” Debruin has a herd of  grass-fed beef and it is delicious! Last week I went to an open house at the ranch to eat juicy hamburgers and learn more about his breed.

Dey Dey and Crystal, his Quality Control Manager, giving a talk about their system of production.

Benefits of eating grass fed beef:

It’s better for your health: Grass fed beef is rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Betacarotene, and Vitamin E. These nutrients are associated with discouraging high blood pressure and heart attacks, among other benefits.

It’s better for the environment: When cows graze on natural pastures, their manure fertilizes the soil instead of becoming a health hazard like it does in Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations.

It’s better for the cows. Raising cows on grassy fields allows them to have a stress-free life, which they enjoy until they are humanely harvested. The cows are not treated with hormones or antibiotics.

It’s better for your local economy. Buying meat from Dey Dey means that you are keeping money in your community and keeping your friends and neighbors employed. Dey Dey’s Best Beef Ever is available at the Goleta Farmer’s Markets on Sundays.
