We guarantee that ButcherBox Beef is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished.
That means our cattle are free to range on grassy pastures throughout their entire lives, suckling from their mothers for the first 6 to 9 months, then eating their natural diet of grass. Thanks to the climate, they graze year-round, with access to shelter when needed. They are never fed grain or kept in feedlots. Besides being delicious, the health benefits of eating grass-fed, grass-finished meat are abundant.
We source our meat from ranchers we trust. That means working with companies and farmers that are dedicated to doing the right thing – never cutting corners, and always looking for ways to improve. All of our beef producers are third-party audited for the strictest of humane standards and practices.
Where is your beef from?
We source our beef from both the US and Australia. Why Australia? It has the ideal for cattle to graze year-round on pasture. Plus, the quality of Australian beef is exceptional! Grass-fed beef in Australia undergoes the strict MSA grading process, which factors in tenderness and juiciness for a maximized eating experience.
