When you see the “Born, Pasture Raised†, and Harvested in the USA” label on our grass fed beef products, it means exactly that. Our cattle are born on family farms, pasture raised, and harvested right here in America’s heartland. Learn more about our approach to producing 100% grass fed beef in this video.
Some grass fed beef in America is imported, typically from Australia, New Zealand, or Uruguay. Under current policy, meat products from these countries may be labeled “Product of the USA” or “Made in the USA” if they are processed here. It’s important to us that you know our business is a collaboration of Midwestern farmers who work with natural cycles of the land, sun, and water, just like past generations of American ranchers.
How does buying American benefit ranchers?
Grass fed beef production is a small part of the total beef production economy, but it’s one of the fastest-growing segments in the industry. Grass fed beef may cost more than other kinds of beef, but that’s for a few good reasons. Grass fed beef takes longer to produce because cattle are given the time they need to grow on natural forages without added hormones. Ranchers also process a smaller quantity of cattle at one time.
Grass fed beef production gives producers a more direct connection to consumers who are buying their beef and the ability to commit to the health and growth of their local communities.
Our Favorite Iconic American Beef Dishes
Steaks with Mushroom Gravy
American icon and our 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt was a prolific hunter, naturalist, and writer—and, some may argue that his energetic disposition was fueled by protein. T.R.’s favorite food was steak and gravy.
Café Delites uses simple ingredients, mouthwatering ribeye, and a kick of Worcestershire in this recipe.
Bourbon BBQ Burgers
France has champagne, Scotland has whiskey, but bourbon is 100% American. To be called bourbon, the liquor needs to be made in the U.S. For the most part though, bourbon hails from Kentucky! 95% of the world’s bourbon is made there.
Spicy Southern Kitchen layers bourbon in both the ground beef burger mixture and a zippy bourbon-barbecue mayo in this recipe.
