At Luna Field Farm we are working to provide you with a wonderful eating experience. From the time an animal is born to the time it reaches your dinner table we take great care to consider the wellbeing of that animal and the environment in which it is raised. Calves are born on pasture in late spring/early summer and cows are grazed using planned grazing techniques whereby they have access to fresh pasture each day.
We love to learn from others and we have found a great community of mentors and experienced ranchers and graziers keen to share their knowledge with us. With their help and our enthusiasm we are sure that we can continue to improve our products and provide you with a healthy and flavourful grass-fed product.
Our grass-fed cattle are:
- Raised on pasture
- Hormone, antibiotic free
- Harvested seasonally when they are at their prime finishing weight (mid summer), not when our schedule requires it.
- Dry-aged for 18-21 days and then cut, wrapped, and frozen, prior to customer pick-up or delivery.

Why is beef only available in the fall?
We are mindful of the quality of the finished product and want to provide you with the best eating experience we have to offer. High daily weight gains are necessary when finishing an animal. Cattle need a high carbohydrate diet for the final months of finishing in order for them to gain sufficient fat for the finished product. In a feedlot setting grain (high energy carbohydrate) is used for the finishing stage. In a grassfed system perennial pasture plants shift carbohydrates from their leaves to their roots as day length decreases. As the carbohydrate levels in the pasture drop so does the potential for animal gains and marbling. While high quality alfalfa hay can also be used to compensate for potential carbohydrate shortages we focus on pasture finishing. We need 60-90 days of high gains (high carbohydrates) to finish an animal. In our climate, June, July and August provide the best time for weight gain and finishing therefore late summer and early fall (at the end of the 60-90 days period) is the best time to harvest the animal.
