Product information

Is the beef I order frozen?

The beef you order is vacuum sealed fresh and flash frozen in a specialized freezer, to preserve the integrity and quality of the beef. You will receive the freshest ranch raised beef Nebraska has to offer!

How long can I keep the beef I order in my freezer?

Because of our packaging and freezing process, your beef will maintain our quality-fresh guarantee up to six months after the product arrives at your door.

Is the cattle you purchase from local cattlemen all grass fed?

Our cattle are grass-fed and grain-finished. The cattle are grain-fed for 2-3 months prior to being transported to our facility. Grain finishing the beef promotes the marbling, tenderness, and superior flavor profile we are known for.

What makes Dismal River Beef different from other Nebraska beef suppliers?

At Dismal River Beef, we have our own dedicated processing facility. We choose dedicated, local ranchers who raise cattle to meet our specifications. We control how the meat is harvested, aged, cut and packed, which the larger suppliers simply cannot do. The result is the best piece of Nebraska beef, which is now proudly shared nationwide.
