Hello dear followers of our farm and lovers of all things natural! We've come across a fascinating article that might interest you - a study exploring the relationship between antibiotics and the increased risk of kidney stones. Let's dive into it and showcase the numerous health benefits our 100% grass-fed beef and lamb, pasture-raised chicken, turkey, duck, and goose, and our wild caught Alaskan seafood offer in comparison.

The article, authored by health expert Joseph Mercola, discusses a study published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, which found that five classes of oral antibiotics are associated with a higher risk of kidney stones. This association was particularly pronounced among younger children and remained statistically significant for up to five years after exposure. Furthermore, the occurrence of kidney stones in young patients is rising, a trend partly attributed to the use of antibiotics early in life.

Not only kidney stones, but other health conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and colorectal cancer have also been associated with the use of antibiotics, primarily due to their disruptive effects on the gut microbiome. So, what does this have to do with our farm, you may ask?


At Pure Pasture Farms, we regeneratively raise our 100% grass-fed beef and lamb, and our pasture-raised chicken, turkey, duck, and goose. In addition to these, we also offer farm fresh butter from cows fed 100% grass, pasture-raised chicken eggs and duck eggs, and sustainably harvested, wild caught Alaskan seafood. All our products are reared or caught without the use of antibiotics. By doing so, we not only offer more nutritious, flavorful products but also contribute to public health by not contributing to antibiotic resistance, a major global health concern.

As many of you know, the gut microbiome plays a crucial role in overall health, affecting everything from digestion to immunity and mental health. A diet rich in naturally raised, antibiotic-free products like ours can support a healthy microbiome, thus reducing the risk of associated health issues. In contrast, consuming antibiotic-treated products may expose us to antibiotic residues, contributing to gut microbiome imbalance, antibiotic resistance, and, as the research suggests, an increased risk of health conditions such as kidney stones.

In addition, the article also highlights how diets high in ultra-processed foods contribute to the rising rates of kidney stones in young patients. As advocates of whole, natural foods, we believe in the importance of a balanced diet. That's why our grass-fed beef, lamb, pasture-raised poultry and eggs, and wild caught Alaskan seafood not only make for a healthier choice but also align perfectly with a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

By choosing our wide range of 100% grass-fed, pasture-raised, and wild caught products, you're not only opting for a delicious meal but also promoting healthier microbiomes and a healthier future for all. So, the next time you fill your plate, remember – your choices can make a huge difference for your health and the health of our planet.
