What to know about Whole Foods Market’s grass-fed ground beef:

  • Like all of the beef sold at Whole Foods Market, this grass-feed ground beef comes from 5-Step™ Animal Welfare Rated farms, so shoppers can know how the animals were raised for the meat they are buying.
  • Grass-fed ground beef comes from cattle raised on pasture their entire lives.
  • Grass-fed beef is a delicious, typically leaner alternative to grain-fed beef with an intense beef flavor your sure to enjoy.
  • Because grass-feed beef is typically leaner, it can cook a little quicker. Use indirect heat or lower your oven temperature by 25 degrees when cooking to keep all the tasty juices!
