100% Grass-Fed Beef from New Zealand
Grass-fed Cowboy Ribeye Steaks
Ribeye steaks are beloved by steak fans for their big beefy flavor and significant marbling (which leads to a more moist steak). These ribeye steaks are bone-in ribeye chops (also known as “cowboy steaks”), each with a single bone that has been cleaned of meat & fat (“frenched”) for a more elegant presentation. Bone-in steaks are generally considered to offer better flavor than boneless steaks.
Grass Fed & Pasture Raised
Silver Fern Farms Angus beef is 100% grass-fed & finished, raised free range on massive, pristine pastures in New Zealand. No hormone or antibiotic growth promotants are ever used, and GMOs are illegal there.
Because of New Zealand's moderate climate, these cattle are pasture raised year round, with free access to windbreaks and other structures for shelter from inclement weather.
Selected for Excellence
Silver Fern Farms is a coop of small family farmers across New Zealand. The Angus program combines the Angus breed, renowned for superior marbling, flavor, and texture, with a grading system that ensures you get great beef every time. It has a clean, boldly beefy flavor without the heavy tallow characteristic of commodity beef.
Careful quality grading ensures it is consistently more marbled, tender, and flavorful than much of the grass-fed beef available in the US.
Not only is grass fed beef more humane, it's better for you too. 100% grass fed beef is lower in saturated fat as well as higher in valuable nutrients like vitamins A & E, conjugated linoleic acid (aka CLA), and omega-3 fatty acids.
