In the world of culinary excellence, few things rival the significance of a perfectly prepared steak. But what sets apart a great steak from the rest? At Herd & Grace, we believe that like growing wine grapes, there are ideal places to raise beef and those places significantly influence the flavor and texture of meat. Armed with this concept and the goal of finding the world's most perfect conditions for raising livestock, we embarked on a decade-long journey around the globe. We found the conditions we were looking for in Southernmost Australia and Tasmania. The result is a curated selection of beef and lamb cuts that stand out from all others when compared by flavor, texture, marbling, and overall quality. But most importantly, all of our beef is ethically and sustainably raised in sprawling pastures, not crowded feedlots.
What Sets Us Apart
The Herd & Grace Approach to Quality
We first took our discoveries to Executive Chefs of the finest steakhouses and Michelin Guide rated restaurants. Usually a group that is hard to impress, chefs agreed that our exhaustive search had paid off with a range of top quality meats found nowhere else on earth. In no time, the Cape Grim, Robbins Island, and Pure Black names began to grace the menus of some of the most well regarded restaurants in the world and we became known as the go-to source of the world’s best meats.
Selecting the Best Meats
Herd & Grace's rigorous selection process is driven by a comprehensive set of criteria. The chosen meats are evaluated based on factors like ranch location and the reputation of the farmer in addition to breed, genetics, age, feed quality, animal stress levels, and overall quality of life.
This painstaking selection process not only ensures the highest quality but also contributes to the distinctive flavor profiles that have become synonymous with Herd & Grace meats. Our selection criteria is firmly rooted in a commitment to sourcing meat from animals that have led peaceful lives on reputable farms, enjoying abundant access to pastures and top-notch grazing.

Our Beef is Better for Your Health
It's a simple fact. Grass-Fed beef is better for you. It's packed Omega-3's—there is actually more Omega-3 found in Grass-Fed beef than in salmon. Our steaks are also rich in a compound called CLA (or conjugated linoleic acid) that's widely believed to assist in weight loss, fat reduction, and fighting cancer.
Pure beef made by nature is the product that our grandparents were raised on long before the advent of factory farming. It's the way we were meant to eat.
A Throw Back to Simpler Times - with no GMOs or Hormones
For the cattle, this is paradise. They graze on lush pastures, enjoying mild winters and gentle summers. Farms are family-run, maintaining the traditions of previous generations.
The pace is steady. Farmers quietly go about the business of farming, caring for their cattle just as their fathers and grandfathers did before them. These aren't factory farms. There is no hormone growth promotion. Our cattle are never fed genetically modified feeds or grain.
Instead, they range freely across open paddocks, never in overcrowded and constraining feed lots. They are returning nutrients to the soil, just as their ancestors have done for thousands of years. It's the natural way of raising cattle, the way nature intended—just pure beef made by nature.
