It is an honor to be working with Jen and Mathias at Seilern farms to provide you with great grass fed beef. Jen, Mathias and their young family, have been farming in Kincardine since 2011. Their produce organic mixed grains and grass fed Angus beef certified organic and biodynamic by EcoCert. The hard working ideals of this couple can be seen taking root in their soil and community.
They have a passion for growing food that is as healthy for the environment as it is to eat. Here is their description of their farming practices.
“The crops and livestock are rotated around the farm providing biological diversity and a rest for the soil. All animal manure is composted and incorporated back into the soil providing fertility and a closed nutrient cycle. This is the recipe for healthy soil, the basis of all farm production. We feed the soil and, in turn, it feeds us and our customers healthy, tasty food.” (Mathias & Jen Seilern)
Despite being busy full time farmer, their work doesn’t stop at the edge of the field. Jen and Mathias were one of the founders of Eat Local Grey Bruce. This cooperative allows you to shop directly from the producers and have it delivered to your area.

Beef finished on grass creates a meat that has a lower overall fat content. As well as a high concentration of healthy fats and an increased quantity of vitamins and minerals. When compared to grain fed beef, grass fed is particularly high in Omega 3 fatty acids. The same healthy fatty acids found in flax seed and fish that have been shown to be good for heart health. Grass fed beef has also been shown to be higher in vitamin E, vitamin A and conjugated linolinic acid. Feeding cattle grain changes the pH of their stomach and alters the way that they absorb nutrients. These changes directly translate into the nutrient content of the meat. Keeping cattle on grass increases the nutrient content of the meat and enhances the flavour.
