This ground beef is the very same that our chefs use to make some pretty famous burgers. The medium grind comes from the chuck shoulder, with an 80% lean meat and 20% fat ratio, for optimum flavor and texture.
Now the home cook can use the same ground beef to elevate their burger game. Keep it simple and do it like the chefs: cut straight through the log of beef to make perfect burgers.
Not using the whole 5 pounds? Just divide the beef into bags (best to use a vacuum seal machine) and stash it in the freezer.
But if you're planning a party, a chili cook-off, or a record-breaking sized meatloaf, this bulk buy will suit your needs.

Just imagine if you could raise a steer from birth on the grass in your own back yard, and then feed it locally-grown alfalfa hay, barley and corn for a few months. You could guarantee it never got any animal by-products in the feed, nor any hormones or antibiotics. Well, that’s exactly what our ranchers do –but in a 10,000-acre backyard in the Northwest.
This group of conscientious cattle ranchers formed a cooperative to focus on humane care for the animals, and the highest quality finished product.
Their Black Angus cattle range over pasture land for most of their lives, and are then rounded up and fed a supplement of alfalfa hay, barley and corn for a few months in a spacious, dry, low-stress feeding facility, before processing (usually at about 2 years of age). The 100% vegetarian feed is supplemented with vitamin E and A which helps strengthen natural immunities.
To the ranchers, humane treatment is of paramount importance, so every care is taken, even in transporting the cattle short distances. They know exactly where each animal comes from, and can track them from birth to processing, all of which takes place in the great Northwest. Each animal comes with an affidavit that proves that the rancher followed the strict natural protocols of the cooperative.
