New Zealand, Ground in the US
Ground beef (aka mince beef) is extremely versatile and can be turned into burgers, meatballs, meat loaf, meat sauce for pasta, chili, and more. This ground beef has an 85%/15% lean/fat ratio and is ground from only solid muscle, so it has a superior texture to beef ground from cheaper trim.
Made with grass-fed beef from Silver Fern Farms in New Zealand, this ground meat is processed in the U.S. by Crown Range Meats, a company that does not compromise on animal welfare and quality, ensuring you receive consistent, robustly flavored, healthy ground beef.
Grass Fed & Pasture Raised
Silver Fern Farms Angus beef is grass-fed & finished, raised free range on massive, pristine pastures in New Zealand. No hormone or antibiotic growth promotants are ever used, and GMO seeds 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 co-op 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. 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.
Store frozen grassfed beef in your freezer until you're ready to use it, then thaw only as much as you plan on cooking.
