Qualities such as pasture-raised, no feedlot, hormone-free, no GMO and no-antibiotics matter a lot to you, but you still want the delicious taste of tender beef?

Well, you’re in luck. Del Terruño is a mouth-watering option when you want exclusive, natural, healthy, young beef from top breeds such as Aberdeen Angus and Hereford – and you refuse to accept the use of hormones, antibiotics or animal byproducts. And as chefs in Boston, Provincetown, the Vineyard and beyond know, Del Terruño 100% grass-fed beef gives you the unique combination of freshness and texture of a meat that's tasty yet not gamey; tender but not spongy; lean, but succulent.

Look closer

Several characteristics that chefs really appreciate are tenderness, a sweet fresh taste that provides an excellent foundation for either very complex or deceivingly simple recipes; and of course, a lot less fat!  The fat doesn't permeate the meat- it's all on the outside.  Del Terruño 100% natural grass-fed beef is raised in Uruguay, a country that enjoys a mild climate,  excellent natural pasture and relatively flat terrain. Del Terruño cattle is never confined but lives free-range on the bounty of the earth, 12 months a year and the three words most often used to describe Del Terruño are tasty, tender and lean.

Del Terruño beef is available in the USA through Holliston, Massachusetts-based company Del Terruño, LLC.

What’s in a name?

“Del Terruño” means, “from my small corner of the earth” and refers to the pride of the ranching families who raise the cattle and personally stand behind every cut of our 100% grass-fed beef, as well as to a robust traceability option that lets you see where each animal was raised. This shared commitment to natural quality demonstrates the strong responsibility for animal welfare, efficient land management and sustainable practices passed down through generations of ranchers.

Some important facts

Regular beef is raised in feedlots, where the animals are crowded together, and often standing in their own feces, and must regularly receive antibiotics to fight diseases. They also get growth hormones and artificial fatteners to have them increase weight faster and cheaper.  Sometimes they may be corn-raised and grass-finished, or, they may be fed hay or silage, which is preserved pasture, fermented, high-moisture stored fodder, but nowhere in the USA is it cost-effective (or weather-permitting) to let your animals roam free in a pasture to eat real, fresh grass 12 months of the year.  Uruguay is a small country with template climate, no mountains and few people; raising beef is one of the main industries. Growth hormones and animal by-products have always been forbidden in Uruguay.
