Beltie beef: lean yet tender.

In a recent nutritional analysis, Ribeye steaks from Aldermere cattle were found to have fewer calories and saturated fats compared to the USDA standard for ribeyes, but more protein, calcium, and iron. Moreover, Aldermere beef had eleven times the “conjugated linoleic acid”- and CLA is gaining reputation in the medical community as one of the premier “good fatty acids.”

Despite its leanness, Aldermere beef retains a tender and juicy texture. Aldermere beef is hung in the cooler for two weeks before being packaged, which makes it more tender. Additionally, Beltie beef may have lower concentrations of calpastatin, an enzyme that slows the natural tenderization of meat as it ages. New York Times food writer Heidi Julavits, upon biting into an Aldermere Beltie burger, dubbed it one of, “the most sublime hamburgers we’ve ever consumed. We have to eat leaning over our plates to keep the maximally beefy drippings from running down our wrists.”

Raised on Pasture. All-natural, grain-finished.

All of Aldermere’s Belties enjoy a habitat which makes for high quality beef. Aldermere’s Belties are raised on pasture and hay, then finished using two different feeding practices. Our traditional grain-finished beef has noted by numerous customer for its excellent marbling and flavor. Most of the grain that supplements our cattle’s diet is Maine-grown.
