The EU-certified 'organic' label is there to recognise the special performance of farmers concerning the welfare and interest of animals and nature. Due to the fact that Lento Melo cattle are free to graze, the 'organic' label comes as a gift from Mother Nature that requires almost no input from man. We therefore carry the organic label with modesty. Incidentally this fantastic, quality meat of Lento Melo is also available without the 'organic' label. The 'normal' Lento Melo oxen have then grazed on pastures where a limited amount of raw phosphate is used to improve the quality of grass and clover.
