Grass Fed Beef
At Mosner Family Brands, we proudly support the wellness movement towards healthier proteins. We believe that raising an animal in an ethical manner, with respect and care for the environment, yields a better, more nutritious end product. Grass Fed Beef has been a growing category because it is better for the environment and healthier for you.
Mosner Family Brands carefully sources 100% Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished Beef from family ranchers that are passionate about their craft. Our Grass Fed beef is never ever administered hormones, growth promotants or antibiotics.
Grain Fed Beef is celebrated for its fine marbling and robust flavor. Marbling is the flavor that provides a wonderfully rich eating experience. Mosner Family Brands’ beef cattle are born and raised in the US, predominately in the Midwest. Our beef cattle are grain-fed, typically a corn and soy-based feed, to guarantee unparalleled flavor and tenderness.
Mosner Family Brands carries a variety of Grain-Fed Beef cuts in USDA Prime, USDA Choice, and USDA Select grades to accommodate the various needs of our customers. The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) grades beef based on the amount of intramuscular marbling, or white flecks of fat throughout the muscle. USDA Prime-grade denotes the highest amount of fat, and often times demands a premium over Choice and Select grades, as only 2% of the cattle raised in the United States meet the Prime specifications, annually.

Mosner Family Brands was originally founded as a veal company by David Mosner in 1957. Over the past 60 years, Mosner Family Brands has proudly supplied some of the nation’s finest retailers and restaurants with exquisite veal products. A member of the Mosner team carefully chooses each piece of veal for every customer. It is the way we were taught by our founder and we pride ourselves in carrying on that tradition.
Mosner Family Brands is committed to supplying only humanely-raised veal to our customers, having led the movement towards group raised veal in the United States, a healthier and more humane way of raising calves. Mosner partners with growers that raise Holstein calves to be lively and strong, allowing them to develop in a group environment; never crated or tethered. It is crucial for our partner farmers to provide a stress free environment for the calves to grow. Herd animals by nature, calves find comfort in socializing with one another in a setting with natural ventilation and sunlight as well as 24-hour access to food and water. Our calves are fed a milk- based formula diet and supplemented with forages as they near maturation, allowing for the animal to have normal development, as they begin rumination. By providing the best possible, natural environment for our calves, the result is an extremely tender, mild protein that has been a culinary staple for decades.
