100% organic meat. 100% delicious

At Wilding Foods, we believe in moderating our intake of meat. But when we do eat it, it’s always 100% organic.

Now it might cost us a little bit more to order organic meats, but in the larger scheme of things, it’s a small price to pay for all the benefits it has in enriching our organic, healthy meals, and all the goodness it does for our planet.

The farmers we rely on understand these benefits, but we thought it’d be a great idea to take you through some of them.

When it comes to organic farming there’s a lot less reliance on antibiotics, growth hormones, and pesticides. This is great news because they’re not something we want you to be eating. By allowing the livestock to live their best life in the most natural way possible, you’re allowing them to grow and develop all the qualities that make eating it so beneficial.

It’s been proven that when you choose to eat organic meats, there are 50% more omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for your nutrition. These are considered essential fats the body can only get from foods such as fish, nuts, seeds, good quality oils such as cold-pressed olive oil, and of course – grass-fed animals. 

What’s great about omega-3 fatty acids is their ability to help regulate your blood sugar, reduce cravings, burn body fat, and help prevent heart disease and stroke.

When you do good by the livestock, the livestock does good by the land. And that’s helping to maintain weeds and grasses, meaning less reliance on pesticides. By giving livestock the chance to freely graze the land, the animals are then getting the necessary exercise they need combined with a top-notch diet – all of which improve the nutritional value of the meat.

The animal’s droppings (obviously not a nice topic of conversation at the dinner table, but an important one) then act as a great way of reinvigorating the soil and all its microbial life. This helps to grow better, more nutritious plants for the animals to eat, while attracting other flora and fauna that build on a paddock’s biodiversity.

So next time you bite into a juicy, succulent piece of organic meat in one of our Wilding Foods nutrient-dense dishes, know the meat came from a farmer who truly cares about how they raise their animals, and the impact their farm has on the environment.
