What determines a good piece of beef?
The real determining factor is your taste-buds and personal preference. However because of taste-buds and personal preference, the general consensus is how tender, flavorful and juicy the beef is. The more marbling a piece of beef has, the more tender and juicy it will be. Those fats will break down as they cook, cooking away mostly, into the beef making it an delectable delight to eat.
What does Dry-Aged mean?
Dry-aged means it's been aged in a temperature controlled room. The beef is not aged in it's juices. This aging process allows for the outer section of the beef to dry out, concentrating all of the flavor to the inside of the beef, creating a very unique flavor, while maintaining the tenderness and texture of the beef. The reason dry aged beef is so amazing is that aging allows natural enzymes to breakdown the hard connective tissue in meats and for water to evaporate away concentrating the flavor. Our beef is dry-aged for 28 days with *trade secret*, creating a very unique flavor.
What does Wet-Aged mean?
Wet-Aged means that the beef has been allowed to age in it's juices to help provide a more beefy, flavorful taste. It will also tenderize the beef.
How often is your packing and cutting facility USDA inspected?
Our packing facility is inspected multiple times daily by the USDA. We maintain one of the cleanest facilities in the Midwest, as rated by the USDA.
How is the tenderness of beef determined?
The tenderness of beef is determined by the marbling of the meat. Marbling is the intra-muscular fat. An even distribution of marbling will determine how tender a piece of beef is.
What does "All Natural" mean?
All beef is all natural, if it comes from cattle. When we say All Natural on this website, we're referring to how the cattle is raised. Notably Certified Piedmontese, Creekstone Farms, Imperial Wagyu, Utica Pork and Berkridge Farms are some brands that we carry that have all natural blood lines.
Where do you get your beef?
We obtain our USDA beef from the finest farms across the country. All products from these farms are sustainable and have traceability.

How is the beef packed?
All of our beef is vacuum sealed. We cut it fresh, the day it's set to be shipped out. Each cut of beef is vacuum sealed for freshness and this will allow it to wet-age as it's on it's way.
Where do you ship?
Anywhere in the U.S.
Is your beef frozen?
No. We never freeze our beef. When it's frozen and then thawed, only to be frozen again it will change the taste and texture of the beef. Enzymes will break down from the freezing process. Since we pride ourselves on our expertise and quality of our beef, we will never freeze beef. We do not advise against it, but you never want to re-freeze beef. When it arrives, in our vacuum sealed packaging, freshly cut for you, you can freeze it once, but never twice.
