    Pure bred English Hereford

    Until the 18th century, the cattle of the Herefordshire area were similar to other cattle of southern England, being wholly red with a white switch, similar to the modern North Devon and Sussex breeds.  Originally from Herefordshire, England, more than five million pedigree Hereford cattle now exist in over 50 countries.  The Hereford cattle export trade began from the UK in 1817, starting in Kentucky, United States, spreading across the US and Canada through Mexico and to the great beef-raising countries of South America.

    Kobe-Style American Wagyu

    Snake River Farms maintain purebred Wagyu cow and bull herds from renowned Japanese bloodlines. These imported cattle are the foundation of our Snake River Farms program. Snake River Farms cross-breeds these intensely marbled and highly prized purebred Wagyu cattle with traditional cattle breeds.  Snake River Farms creates melt-in-your-mouth cuts with intense intermuscular marbling that is comparable to Japanese Wagyu and a meaty flavor profile. The result is a perfect blend of famous Wagyu buttery marbling and the robust beef flavor that American beef is known for.

    Pure bred Black Aberdeen Angus

    Angus cattle, known as Aberdeen Angus in most parts of the world, are a breed of cattle commonly used in beef production.  They were developed from cattle native to the countries of Aberdeenshire and Angus in Scotland.  Because of their native environment, the cattle are very hardy and can survive the Scottish winters, which are typically harsh.  The cattle have large muscle content and are regarded as medium-sized.  The meat is very popular in Japan for its marbling qualities.

  • ITALY

    Pure bred Italian Chianina

    One of the oldest breeds of cattle, the Chianina originates in the area of the Valdichiana, from which it takes its name, and the middle Tiber valley.  Chianina cattle have been raised in the Italian regions of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio for at least 2200 years.  Since the Second World War, the Chianina has become a world breed, raised almost exclusively for its high quality meat.  Through exportation of breeding stock, it has reached Russia, Asia, and the Americas.  The Chianina is both the tallest and the heaviest breed of cattle.  Mature bulls stand up to 1.8m, and castrated oxen may reach 2m.

    Pure bred Limousin

    The history of Limousin cattle begins in the period known as the Pleistocene (2.6 million to 12,000 years ago), when many megafauna roamed the Earth.  One of the megafauna that survived until the 17th century was the aurochs, the distant ancestor of modern cattle.  Limousin cattle evolved in the French region now known as Limousin.  The region comprises the historical French provinces of Limousin and Marche, which include the departments of Correze in its entirety, most of Creuse, and parts of Haute-Vienne.  Limousin cattle adapted to the local hilly conditions of acidic soils and weakly mineralized granite, with large variations in temperature.  These factors led to the development of a hardy breed with an unusually thin but solid bone.

  • SCOTLAND

    Pure bred Scottish Highland

    Highland cattle are a Scottish cattle breed.  They have long horns and long wavy coats that are coloured black, brindle, red, yellow, white, silver, or dun.  They are raised primarily for their meat.  Originated in the Highland and Western Isles of Scotland, they were first mentioned in the 6th century AD.  They are a hardy breed due to their native environment.  This results in long hair, giving the breed its ability to overwinter.  Their milk generally has a very high butterfat content, and their meat, regarded as of the highest quality, is gaining mainstream acceptance as it is lower in cholesterol than other varieties of beef.

  • ARGENTINA

    Pure Grass Fed Argentine Beef

    The uniqueness of Argentinian beef is a testament to its rich and tender flavour. Its taste is also impacted by the extended lifespan of the cattle and the way they are raised and fed, making it one of the world’s best beef. With 300,000 square miles of seemingly endless flatlands, La Pampa, a unique prairie in Argentina, is the perfect humid climate for permanently growing cow-friendly grass. This means the cattle raised there graze happily and free, resulting in a more flavourful, leaner, and nutritious beef with less saturated fat and healthier Omega-3 fatty acids. For this reason, our Argentine beef is ungraded. You certainly won't miss the extra fat with the natural flavour of this beef.
