The Finest Grass Fed Steers
Kettle Range ground beef is made from local native cattle raised by us or by our close network of independent Wisconsin family farms. Kettle Range beef is grass and forage fed and is ALWAYS antibiotic and hormone free.
We personally select each steer for health and finishing, transporting them ourselves to small, local or regional independently owned slaughter houses where we know that they will be humanely and respectfully handled.
Give it a try... We guarantee that you will taste the difference. And in keeping with out commitment to high quality, healthy meat, we never use "downer" cows or retired dairy cows in our ground beef.
Traditional Dry Aging
Kettle Range uses traditional methods to dry age our beef for at least 14 days.
Why does dry aged beef tastes better? The dry aging process, which can last from a few days to as long as several months, allows enzymes naturally present in the meat to break down the muscle tissue, resulting in buttery texture and deep "beefy flavors".
There was a time when all beef was dry aged, but these days, it's more common to age beef in plastic shrink-wrap—a process known as wet-aging.
At our shop, we routinely offer select cuts that are dry aged on site for 14-45 days. Come take a look in our aging cooler, select a cut that intrigues you, and give it a try.
Our butcher is on hand to help you select the perfect cut of beef, including classic and lesser-know cuts.
