About Pierson’s Natural Beef Farm

“Pierson Bicentennial Farm” was settled in 1790 by Josiah Pierson, my great -great -great -great- grandfather. My name is Orrin Pierson, I am part of the seventh generation on this farm, and this is a piece of our story.

Our homestead was recognized as a bicentennial farm by the New York State Ag. Society in 2001, and is one of the oldest farms in Orange County. My wife Jackie and I, together with our eighth generation children, Lorna, Rachel, Carolyn, and Rita, live and work solely on the farm. The farm originally consisted of around 1000 acres, but due to sell-offs by each generation, we are now approximately 300 acres. All of my ancestors were dairy farmers until the late 1970s, when my father, Stephen, sold the dairy. He then bought two-hundred sheep and started to raise them for their wool and meat. Unexpectedly, in 1995, my father passed away from cancer. He left me with three hundred sheep and thirty head of natural beef cattle. I gradually sold the sheep and kept the cattle. Today, along with raising natural beef, we raise pork and chickens, sell flowers from our greenhouses, have a pick-your-own pumpkin harvest in October, manage a haunt event, and sell fresh cut and cut your own Christmas trees in December. My wife has a gift shop in the old wagon house that has been refurbished. We have it opened seasonally and/or by appointment year round. During off seasons, we shut down to regroup and take care of this big beautiful farm and our home life.

Try our New York natural beef, you won’t be disappointed. Orrin Pierson

Our quarters could be more costly when beef is larger then this example we have listed.

Benefits of our
natural beef products

Our Farm Raised natural beef benefits are surprising to most consumers. People don't realize how different the nutritional value of the exact same product can be depending on how it was actually produced.

  • Beef from pastured cattle is up to four times higher in Vitamin E than beef from feedlot cattle.
  • Beef cattle raised primarily on pasture will have three to five times more CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) than beef fed primarily grain.
  • Can Significantly reduce your risk of E. coli: Beef raised on a diet of all or primarily grain have dramatically higher risks of E. coli contamination
  • Increase your Omega-3 fatty acid intake: Pastured natural beef has two to four times more Omega-3 than feedlot/grocery store beef.
  • Eat New York natural beef with a more balanced ratio of Omega-3 fats to Omega-6 fats
angus

The natural diet of cattle is green grass that is naturally high in Omega-3 fats because it is formed in their green leaves, as well as Vitamin E. When cattle are placed on a high grain diet they lose their source of Omega-3’s and thus their ability to store Omega-3’s. They also lose their source of Vitamin E. Omega-3 fat or “fatty acid” is one of the “good fats” that is essential for normal growth and development and plays a role in the prevention of heart disease, cancer, and arthritis, to name a few. An important fact is that Omega-3 fats MUST come from your diet because your body cannot make them. We have moved away from corn feeding on our hayrides to better tune the cattle diets on our farm. 

Beef from grassfed ruminants is also one of the best known sources of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), and may contain up to five times the amount of CLA as meat from primarily grain-fed cattle. CLA is proving to be one of the best defenses in preventing cancer.
