Skelton Farms represents the third generation of Skeltons that have been farming in Edinboro Pa. We have been raising 100% grass fed Piedmontese Beef cattle free of antibiotics and growth hormones for over 15 years. We are a small family run farm and care deeply about the land and animals in our stewardship.
Piedmontese Beef is natually tender and low in fat and Cholesterol. Lower in fat than skinless breast of chicken. USDA and University studies confirm that Piedmontese beef has the highest amounts of good poly unsaturated fats and the lowest amounts of saturated fats, in addition the highest percentages ofOmega 3 EFA and DHA when compaired to all other beef breeds tested.
And best of all the beef is full of flavor and exceptionally tender.
So, Why Buy beef from us?
The answer is as simple as our philosophy of raising our cattle. Clean, safe, beef, raised humanely and with pride. Our calves are born on our farm in clean pastures. They romp through the pastures, streams and woods, nursing from their mothers and eating fresh grass that is completely free of pesticides or herbicides. Throughout the winter, they eat orchard grass hay that has been harvested from our farm, grown without pesticides or herbisides. They never leave the farm until the day of slaughter, a short 15 minute ride away. The processing plant is an immaculate, small, facility that that is operated with pride and is open to the pubic. Anyone is free to visit our farm or the processing plant any day, any time, during regular business hours.
Why Piedmontese Beef?
With traditional American beef, fat equals flavor. The USDA grading system is founded on this premise, with USDA Choice Beef having the highest fat content of all the grades. However, with Piedmontese beef, fat is not necessary for flavor. The beef is tender and notably delicious without the fat! The Piedmontese cattle breed comes to us from the Italian Alps. This unique cattle breeds has evolved over centuries in a pure environment to become a truly efficient animal. Genetically different from all other cattle breeds they produce low fat, tender, healthy beef. They carry a unique gene that reduces fat while improving tenderness. The USDA and other researchers have confirmed this , Piedmontese cattle are lower in cholesterol and calories while having significantly highest amounts of Omega-3 EFA as well as higher protein levels.
Skelton Farms has been breeding Piedmontese Beef cattle since 1995. In the beginning we started out with two Full Blood Piedmontese cows one Full Blood Piedmontese bull and 15 Angus cross cows. We have selectively breed to the best bulls and retained the best heifers for our cow calf operation. At this point all of the Piedmontese beef on our farm have two copies of the Myostatin Gene ensuring the highest quality beef with the lowest possible fat content. So like the lucky Italians, we here in North America can enjoy eating low fat beef with out compromising on flavor or tenderness.
