One of the things we pride ourselves on is ensuring that all of our protein sources are free of growth promoters, antibiotics and other nasties that find their way into industrial-grade food.
All our steaks are 100% pasture-raised and pasture-finished. No corn/soy diets, no growth promoters/hormones, no antibiotics. Just the grasses that constitute their natural diets - in our case, the lush pastures of New Zealand.
In the US, 80% of antibiotics usage is actually for animal agriculture (1), , as a treatment for when livestock are sick (which tends to happen when you feed them steroids and unnatural diets to make them as large and as fast as possible in a short time…).
It’s been shown that humans can become antibiotic-resistant from eating foods that contain antibiotics or antimicrobial residues (2).
Raising meat and fish the industrial way is an intense process - the animals live in confined, crowded spaces, increasing their stress and the risk of disease transmission.
Did you know antimicrobials are also found in household cleaning items such as bleach?
The reason we started Paleo Robbie was to give everyone living in Thailand the option to choose real food as often as possible.
Pasture-raised beef is one of the most nutrient-dense proteins you can eat. It has an extensive micronutrient profile and contains a good amount of brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin B12 which is essential for brain health.
Comparing the nutrient profiles of grass-fed versus conventionally farmed beef can be like comparing apples to oranges. For example, our grass fed steaks have an amazingly low omega 6:3 ratio of 1.7:1.

Grain-fed (which is 100% of Thai-French beef, by the way) has 3 to 10 times more omega 6 fatty acids but 3 times less of the prized omega 3’s. This imbalance makes the meat more inflammatory to eat for your body.
If you have a few minutes, here is a short Tedx talk on the benefits that pasture-raised cows present for our bodies and our earth.
