Someone tell that lovable old lady from the commercial, we found the beef.

During these dinners, the waiter or sommelier will go into great detail about where the wine comes from, even pinpointing a specific valley in the countryside perfectly located to provide ample sunlight. But do we ever hear that level of detail regarding the food we are eating alongside it? Isn’t it important to know where our food came from too and why it tastes so good?
So why does Pre beef taste distinctly different andmore delicious, than the other beef I find in the grocery store? Just like with wine, region matters. In order to grow individual varieties of grapes, you need a certain level of rainfall, a specific mineral content found in the soil, a particular amount of sunlight, and different temperature requirements to achieve the perfect vintage. The same strict standards are needed for beef.
At Pre, we source our beef like we would source our wine. We chose specificcountries that provide the perfect environment for raising cattle. And within those countries, we dial it down to specific regions. All of our beef comes from New Zealand and the south-eastern regions of Australia(specifically Tasmania, Victoria, and New South Wales). The ample rainfall and mild climate of these areas allow for nutritious grass to grow and thrive so cattle can be pasture raised year round. Farmers in these regions also utilize sustainable farming practices, combining sheep and cattle on the same pasture, for example. Sheep like to eat just about anything(weeds included!) so this lets the cattle munch on the grasses they prefer to enjoy. Fun fact: Did you know that sheep and cattle both outnumber the human populations of New Zealand and Australia?
The breed of cattle we source plays a big role in our Pre difference. We like to compare this to the variety of grape used in different wines. Each variety is going to taste different, thrive in certain growing conditions, and yield different size and color fruit. The breeds we use when sourcing our beef are calledBritish breeds. Examples of these includeAngus, Hereford, Red Devon, Murray Grey and any cross-breeds. We use British breeds, as opposed to Tropical breeds such as Brahman, because British breeds are smaller, gentler animals that provide high-quality beef.

"Real talk...since my cancer was environmental and not hereditary I am super conscious of what goes into my body, especially protein. Post chemo left my body super low in iron so steak remains in my diet. I found Pre a few months ago and it’s the only meat I buy. Grass-fed, no added hormones and most importantly affordable. Eat better for your body people!"jaqueline
"Your steaks, especially the sirloin, ribeye, and filet mignon are absolutely delicious. Wasn’t sure how these cuts would taste grilled but they taste just as good if not better than cuts I’ve had a top notch steakhouses."Mario
"When our son was diagnosed with a rare medical disorder, it meant that we would have to change our diet as a family. Because his metabolism doesn’t function like a typical person’s, we have to be very careful about what we feed him. One of the changes we made was to use more grass-fed and finished beef in our cooking. We decided to give Pre a try, and we are so happy with the quality and taste of the meat. Buying from Pre gives us peace of mind and we feel confident knowing that we are using a product in the top of its class."Lindsay
"This beef is AMAZING! I'm from Wisconsin so a huge steak lover. This is some of the best beef, I've experienced and I've had beef around the world. It's a must try, and you'll understand what I mean."Tracy
