At Consumers Packing Company, we take pride in using only the best product that nature has to offer. For the past twenty years, we have thrived by providing farm-to-table meats for our customers by sourcing from farms within 120 miles of our facility. We meticulously follow USDA guidelines regarding grass-fed animal diets. Our native Midwest cattle graze in grass field pastures before being corn-finished.
Other Consumers Packing sourcing facts:
According to the USDA standards, cattle qualifies in the “grass fed” category if the animal is freely roaming on grassy or clover field pastures, and not offered a corn fed diet. Hay may be included within a grass fed diet.
Wet-aging beef is an essential process in developing the natural flavor of the meat. This flavor development occurs by keeping the primal and subprimal cuts of beef in a vacuum-sealed cryovac. Within these temperature monitored coolers, enzymes enhance the flavor of the beef, while simultaneously breaking down connective tissue, maximizing both taste and tenderness.
The dry-aging process occurs when primal cuts of beef or pork are removed from the vacuum-sealed cryovac. From this stage, primal cuts are placed in a temperature and humidity-controlled environment. These conditions cause the primal cuts to lose excess water while developing the muscle tissue within the cuts. This development results in a more pronounced flavor and superior tenderness. All dry-aged periods last between 14 and 75 days depending on the specific requests of the customer. Our 6,000 square foot dry-aging room is monitored hourly for precise temperature and humidity control. Additionally, Consumers Packing is proud to be one of the only suppliers in the country to offer dry-aged pork products.
