One of the biggest advantages of buying beef direct from Jacob Farms is that our beef is dry aged, which enhances the flavor and tenderness. At Jacob Farms, we let our beef age 10-14 days before it is cut and packaged. The packing plants that provide the meat for most of groceries and meat markets harvest and package the meat the very same day.
All of our beef is Angus or Angus cross steers. The Angus breed is noted for their better marbling ability, thus making a more tender, flavorful meat.
All our steers are locally raised and are selected for their quality genetics. There is no mixing of meat of all qualities for hamburger as is done in the packing plants.
When you buy direct from the farm, you can get your steaks and roasts cut the way you want them.
Buying a beef, whether it is a quarter, half, or whole is a large up front purchase but when compared to Wal-mart, pound for pound, we are almost always cheaper, and it’s a much higher quality product!
