Golden Rose Livestock offers Black Angus beef and cross-bred lamb that graze naturally on our farm located in the Kishwaukee River Valley of northern Illinois. Our family has been raising grass-fed livestock and selling custom meats directly to our customers since 1971. Our customers come as far away as central Illinois, Chicago, Rockford and Milwaukee. References available upon request.
Black Angus beef is available in 1/4, 1/2 and whole shares. Lamb is available in 1/2 and whole shares. All is cut to your specifications, wrapped, frozen and labeled at two locally owned state inspected butcher shops.
Our principles: At Golden Rose, we adhere to sustainable management practices through rotational grazing. Our animals are not crowded into feedlots, fed grain, antibiotics and animal byproducts, or implanted with growth hormones. We do not spray our pastures with herbicides and pesticides (just ask our resident honey bees!). Rather, our animals are raised in a stress free, humane manner and are always moving to the next pasture full of fresh grasses, native foliage and the occasional apple tree.
Please contact us and we will send you our newsletter that will have information about pricing, weight estimations, freezer space needed, processing and how you can order from us.
