Where does your grass fed beef
Come from

Amanda says:

Hello! Our beef comes from New Zealand. Here is a link to our website – it talks all about our 100% grass-fed beef and why we bring it in from New Zealand. We have wonderful relationship with these farmers and have visited the farms in person. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to reach out!
