Learn more about Del Terruño Free Range Beef :
A country of soft, rolling hills, with a climate that ranges from 77 degrees in the summer to 56 degrees in the winter, Uruguay offers 39 million acres of grazing land where animals can be (pasture raised) twelve months of the year.
Our ranch owners are established in areas that provide the very best natural grass, water and shade. The cattle roam freely, and never have to walk far or to climb steep mountains to drink fresh water, to rest under large trees, or to feed on soft grass. The result? Tender, tasty meat from healthy animals that have never received antibiotics, hormones or eaten animal byproducts as part of their diet.
Del Terruño Free Range Beef specializes in breeds well known for their excellent meat, including Aberdeen Angus and Hereford. Second, we hand-select the best animals. They are raised free on the prairies, eating only fresh, natural grass. Del Terruño animals attain the ideal weight at a young age, without the need of any chemical fattening or animal byproducts ever added to their diets.
