About our Meats

  • Why Black Angus?

    The Linz Heritage Angus program is a breed specific, 100% Black Angus program that sources its beef only from the Midwest. Hundreds of years ago there was no distinction between cattle; every breed was used for milk, beef, plowing, etc. People noticed certain traits with particular breeds and discovered that the Angus breed was superior for quality beef production. Linz Heritage Angus was created to not only keep up with the growing demand for high quality beef, but to set the standard for a true conception to plate experience. They’ve been served in top steakhouses all over the world, and now they can be part of your house, too. Read more about our story here.

  • How will my steaks be packaged?

    Except for Tenderloin tips and Filet Chops, which are bulk packed, all our steaks are individually vacuum packed in a Linz Heritage Angus box.

  • How long are steaks aged?

    We wet age our steaks for a minimum 21 days, and you can expect your Dry Aged LHA items to arrive with an average of 28 days of dry aging.

  • What does “Grade” Mean?

    Grade refers to the USDA beef grading scale. Linz Heritage Angus is a USDA certified program that adheres to the USDA Standard and consistently scores above the standard. We are proud to offer Upper 2/3rds Choice (LHA Reserve) and USDA Prime (LHA Prime) beef. USDA grading is based on the amount of marbling in the beef. Marbling is the intramuscular fat that you will often see the most of in high-end steaks. Learn more about our grading here.
