Snake River Farms Wagyu Beef And Berkshire Pork With Free Shipping
Sometimes we just want something special, like USDA Prime steaks, or American Wagyu brisket, or Heritage Hog meat and, darn it, the local grocery just doesn't carry it. It is still too rare. If you get similar hankerings, here are my favorite sources.
Snake River Farms and Double R Ranch are part of Agri Beef Co., a family-owned and operated business dedicated to producing high quality beef and pork. The company was founded in 1968 and is vertically integrated with handling, ranching, feeding, processing, marketing, and sales. This unique "ranch to table" approach means that Snake River Farms controls every aspect of quality from start to finish, designed to produce the highest quality possible. We think they have succeeded.
Snake River's cattle are raised in the Northwest along the high plains of eastern Idaho's Snake River, which has a climate that they claim keeps the cattle comfortable through the changing seasons. The location also provides access to a diverse range of feed ingredients.
They describe their beef as American "Kobe" because it has some genetics in common with the famous Japanese beef from Kobe, the world's most expensive, but as good as their beef is, it is absolutely NOT Kobe. We understand that they want to differentiate themselves from more common lesser quality beef, but because we believe that real Kobe comes only from Kobe, and Idaho potatoes only from Idaho, and Champagne only from Champagne, we refer to it as American Wagyu and encourage them to stop the deception. Regardless of what we consider confusing labeling, the meat is effing good. Do not die without having tasted American Wagyu.
Snake River Farms is also one of the few sources of 100% purebred Berkshire pork, also known as Kurobuta pork. Their hogs are raised on small family farms in the Midwest and Idaho. It features fine streaks of marbling throughout the meat resulting in a superb flavor, which is incredibly tender and juicy. The Wall Street Journal dubbed Snake River Farms' pork "The Other Red Meat."
