About Us / Lucky Star Farms History: About Lucky Star Grass Fed BeefOur cattle are born and raised on the sweet grass of the Tall Grass Prairie in the Kansas Flint Hills. Our ranch is some of the last remaining unplowed acres of the Flint Hills region and sustains the best grass you will find anywhere on the earth. This is the land where the buffalo roamed. Unchanged and constant from the beginning of time. Our pure Angus cows and registered Angus Bulls are raised naturally and their offspring are produced without added growth hormones, antibiotics, or grain. They thrive on a diet of native prairie grasses of Big Bluestem, Indian grass, and high quality organicaly grown alfalfa and brome hay in the winter months. We raise our herd humanely and with respect.Our animals are never confined except for very brief periods for birthing assistance with first calf heifers. They spend their entire lives roaming freely on large pastures on our 3000 acre ranch.Since moving back to the ranch full time in 2007, we have made great efforts to improve the natural sustainability of the land. Land once farmed is gradually being returned to native grass and perrenial crops to reduce erosion and maintain soil fertility. Development of ponds and fencing off creeks and rivers has been a priority to reduce contamination from livestock. We are located near the headwaters of the East Branch of the Fall RIver which ultimately supplies water to some 2 million households. We are proud of the efforts we have undertaken to assure clean water and soil conservation here in Greenwood County Kansas. Working with the National Resources and Soil Conservation Service, we were designated as winners of the 2008 Greenwood County Wildlife Habitat Improvement Award by the Greenwood County Soil Conservation District. Working with the Kansas Forest Service and local neighbors and friends, we were able to plant 625 trees this spring to establish a riparian area between cropland and the Fall River to prevent erosion and improve cover for wildlife. Come by for a visit sometime.When you order Lucky Star Beef, you can be assured of high quality flavor and tender well marbled meat. All our beeves are young 100% Angus cattle, that are bred for high carcass quality and excellent marbling characteristics. Our beef is Dry aged for 14-21 days which further enhances the flavor and naturally tenderizes the beef. Meat with little or no marbling will have very little flavor and usually not be as tender. Most grass fed beef advertises itself as lean and this often translates to inadequate marbling. In order to grade USDA Prime which only 2% of US beef accomplishes the meat must be well and finely marbled throughout. Although we have never requested a grader to visit our processor and grade our beef, we assure you that Lucky Star Grass Fed Beef does not sacrifice marbling. Our beef are finished on grass at exceptional average daily gain rates which are usually accomplished only with feedlot cattle. And their diets are HEALTHY for them. 100% natural vegetarian grass, forbs and legumes, naturally grown and grazed by the cattle at their leisure. We use bulls Registered by the American Angus Association with genetic characteristics to naturally enhance the desirable features of our herd. Our cattle are not crossbred but purebred Heritage breed Angus cattle originating in the counties of Angus and Aberdeen, Scotland and brought first to the Americas to Victoria Kansas in 1878. They are good mothers, good natured, highly adaptable, early maturing cattle. Because of the excellent marbling quality of our beef, you should not need to adapt or change your recipes or cooking methods to accommodate our grass fed beef. Although our beef is lean in nature, its fat composition tends to be well distributed throughout the muscle lending itself to intense flavor and a superior culinary experience.Our Lucky Star Farms 100% Grass Fed USDA Certified Dry Aged Black Angus Beef is available in sides and split sides on our website www.luckystargrassfedbeef.com and in flash frozen vacuum sealed packages of steaks, roasts, ground beef and special cuts at GreenAcres Market - 8141 E 21st Street in Wichita, Kansas, and local Farmer's Markets in Wichita.
