Unless specifically specified (e.g., “Short Rib Burgers”, “Ground Chuck,” etc), you can assume that ground beef comes from all over the cow. Butchers grind trimmings from steaks and roasts, ensuring that valuable meat isn’t wasted and giving ground products a nice balanced flavor. Our grinds use trimmings from several primals towards the top of the cattle.
There are fewer than 5,000 cattle from the original Japanese bloodlines. It’s from this select stock that we source our Wagyu beef. Raised on a small family farm in Ohio under the watchful care of the ranchers, these cattle spend their days grazing in all-natural pastures until they’re about 16 months old, when they switch to a diet of all-vegetarian high-moisture grains. The best of genetics combine with the advanced practices of holistic cattle ranching, resulting in a marbled beef experience that is second to none.
