Heritage Genetics:

Preserving the Legacy of Aberdeen Angus

Our Aberdeen Angus cattle trace their lineage to the legendary Scottish Angus #1, fondly known as "Old Jock," born in 1842. These original Angus cattle were revered for their innate hardiness and the exceptional quality of their red meat.

However, as the landscape of agriculture evolved, so did the Angus breed. In post-WWII America, a surge in corn production led to a shift towards grain-fed diets for cattle. Breeders selectively bred Angus cattle for traits suited to this new grain-fed diet, resulting in a modern Angus breed vastly different from its Scottish ancestors.

The modern Angus, prevalent in today's market, boasts a larger frame, optimized for grain-finishing diets. With longer legs and a digestive system adapted to processed grain feed, these cattle exhibit characteristics tailored to industrialized farming practices.

The essence of the original Aberdeen Angus remains ingrained in our heritage cattle. Our Aberdeen Angus are a throwback to a bygone era, with smaller frames, rounder shapes, and unaltered digestive tracts perfectly suited for a 100% grass-fed diet.

While some may be lured by the allure of mass-produced Angus beef, we remain steadfast in our commitment to authenticity. Our heritage genetics ensure that each bite of Joyce Farms Heritage Aberdeen Angus Beef is a tribute to the legacy of the breed, delivering unparalleled flavor rooted in tradition.

Just Grass, No Games

Our cattle thrive on a 100% grass and forage diet, free from antibiotics, growth stimulants, or any artificial substances, ensuring every cut is naturally delicious and truly traditional. When we say grass-fed, we mean it.


True to Tradition: Our Pure Beef Promise

Indulge in our Heritage Beef, where purity reigns supreme. We pride ourselves on delivering nothing but the finest, most natural beef imaginable, and we're committed to challenging the misconception that grass-fed beef must taste "grass-fed."

Much like cultivating grapes for a fine wine, properly raising grass-fed cattle is an art. The meat takes on terroir—which is the distinct flavor influenced by the terrain, weather, soil, and water where they graze. That's why we have strict standards about where they graze, and what they eat. Remember - you are what you eat, eats!

Our Aberdeen Angus cattle roam freely on open pastures, their diet composed solely of nutrient-rich grasses, legumes, and forbs that we plant for their nutritional and medicinal qualities. We never feed corn or grains to raise our cattle (including no dried distillers grains or DDGs, and no grain silage). We also have strict standards in place to ensure that our cattle are raised with absolutely no added hormones, antibiotics, or anything artificial.

Rest assured, our commitment to "nothing added EVER" is unwavering. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
