Why We Stick with Carrots

Sure grass fed beef is better than grain fed. But when grass fed cattle are finished with carrots, Santa Carota Beef delivers an incredible eating experience that’s second to none.

If you haven’t sampled our remarkable Santa Carota Beef, now is the time.

It’s the carrots that make all the difference. You won’t be able to stop talking about the amazing flavor of our juicy, tender steaks, mouthwatering burgers and more.

High Grade, High Reward

Our incredibly moist and delicious beef is predominantly Angus. As many people know, the Angus breed is a consistently higher grade of beef. It has better marbling inside the loin which is where the flavor comes from. And when you are done eating, you may not have that heavy feeling.

The fact is, our Santa Carota beef is healthier than other beef.

A Delicious Way
To Help Yourself

Beyond our Santa Carota exceptional flavor, there are many compelling health reasons why you will prefer our beef.

  • No added antibiotics

  • Hormone free

  • More vitamins – High in B12 and Beta-carotene

  • Non-GMO

  • Gluten free

  • Low in saturated fat

You’ll be interested to know that corn and dry grass are 88% dry food. However, carrots are actually 88% moisture!

In fact, our beef has muscle tissue that is infused with sweet, nutritious juices. That is the secret to why, after savoring our delicious, full flavored beef, you will rarely feel heavy or fatigued.

Cooking Tip:    
Because our meat is so juicy and low in saturated fat, Santa Carota cooks 20-30% faster than regular beef.

 

 

Santa Carota meat tastes like what I've always dreamed beef should taste like! Every cut, every time. So full of flavor and juicy, I won't be buying any other brand from now on. Our whole family's favorite meal!

Beyond Outstanding
Robust Flavor

Our remarkable process of raising cattle with carrots is better for:
  • The land

  • The cattle

  • The consumer

We’re Beating A Trail That Nobody Can Beat

For our family, the Santa Carota vision was always so much more than a corporation or a job. It’s been a way of life. It’s a lifestyle with compassion and respect for:
  • The cattle

  • The land

Never Ever. Forever.

This means we go above and beyond USTA verified natural aging and other standards:
  • Non-GMO

  • No hormones

  • No antibiotics

  • Our cattle are never in a feed lot

  • They aren’t penned in and enjoy and benefit of free choice on open ground

  • We’ll never run out of fresh carrots

 

 

Grass finished beef leaves a lot of customers wanting more. These guys are doing something really special. The carrots carry sugar and it makes a dry aging enzyme reaction that happens like fermenting the wine. Santa Carota has a distinctive advantage-they’re feeding program makes all the difference.

The cookability of the product is great. The moisture content maintains the integrity of the meat. It’s absolutely amazing. We make this burger more like a steak patty. Do you get great sear on the outside and keep the moisture inside, even cooked medium well on open flame-you still have a juicy burger. The fat content is much cleaner. And it’s very forgiving in the kitchen.

Let’s just say we’ve been to the rodeo. The fact is three generations of the Pettit Family have been raising and producing extraordinary full-flavored beef for over 30 years. They had the inspiration and foresight to start feeding their cattle carrots back in 1989.

The Pettit ranch is located along the rolling, lower foothills of majestic Breckenridge Mountain, east of Bakersfield, California. Cattle graze leisurely among the expansive, lush grasses of the hillsides. To ensure that the incredible beef is infused with extraordinary flavor and vitamins, our cows’ consumption of grass is increasingly supplemented with fresh juicy carrots.

The cattle are free to roam the range. Over time, as they grow, they are able to enjoy a 95% carrot-based diet.

Unlike most other ranchers who continue to raise grain fed cattle, the Pettits have truly mastered a delicious, healthier alternative. You’ve got to discover why everyone is raving about the super premium Santa Carota Beef brand.

Nobody Sets The Sustainability Bar Higher

You’ll be glad to know we’re passionate about all aspects of what it takes to bring you the best beef on the planet.

How we raise and feed our cattle goes well beyond the joy of outstanding flavor. Our farm established high standards years ago and you can be sure we all abide by those best practices.

Our cows love the carrots. They are eager to be fed and benefit from our free-range ranch and a less stressful setting.

At Santa Carota, we know a healthy diet for our cows means a healthier, better experience for those people who enjoy our world class meats. With the growing awareness of our unique ranch and culture, we know that happy cows can mean happier customers. This brings the cycle full circle. Additionally, our Santa Carota beef is gluten free, hormone free and they’re never fed additional antibiotics.

Our outstanding brand is always mindful of the land and sustainability. Seven days a week.

As a Scleroderma patient and advocate, healthy living is not a choice but a necessity in my life. The need to eat healthy and still receive the calories and protein I need on a daily basis has been a struggle for many years. When I eat high quality, organic beef I am left with the feeling of a full gut that takes forever to digest.

 
I am grateful to have found Santa Carota beef because I can now eat a more lean, moist and nutritional, gluten free beef, that my body can digest. All that, is on top of the great taste that puts this beef in a class of its own. Thank you, Santa Carota for a game-changer in the world of beef!
