“If you don’t know the farm, you don’t know anything.” This reality is the cornerstone approach to how we source at Heartland. Our sourcing mission is to find the best combination of taste, health, and safety for our families. Here’s what sourcing with integrity looks like for you as a member of the Heartland family:
Listed below are the specific farms we’ve chosen to bring you the very best in quality farm-sourced proteins.
Ever wondered why beef quality is so inconsistent? There are more than 600 breeds of cattle, each breed tastes different, and most grocery store beef is from blended-breeds. At Heartland, our beef is 100% genetically verified Black Angus which means every product is consistently high quality.
When you eat our beef products, there is no need to worry because it’s 100% natural beef with no antibiotics, no added hormones, and no artificial ingredients. Every molecule is high quality beef. For more information, see the “Our Products” section.
All of our poultry is 100% natural, antibiotic-free, with no added preservatives and it comes from birds humanely raised in the countryside. Most grocery store chicken is “pumped” up by injecting it with water and salt to make it appear juicier and bulkier.
Our poultry farmers never use growth stimulants, pesticides, hormones or pumping techniques. The birds are fed an all-natural, 100% vegetarian diet without any additives. The poultry is minimally processed to create exceptional flavor. It cannot get better than this: family farmed, certified humane, and sustainably raised. For more information, see the “Our Products” section.
Our family farms use conscientious farming practices to deliver exceptional tasting pork. These farmers only use 100% Chester White breed pigs which leads to consistent, exceptional quality pork that’s superior due to its natural marbling, flavor, tenderness, and juiciness.
Our farmers feed their pigs a 100% vegetarian diet and never administer antibiotics, growth hormones or animal by-products. Using sustainable farming and certified humane methods, our farmers consistently care for their pigs, and ultimately, your family. For more information, see the “Our Products” section.
Did you know that studies show the difference between frozen and fresh fish is negligible? In fact, frozen fish occasionally edges out fresh in nutrient value. The reason is that fresh fish must be shipped, and seafood nutrients begin to break down soon after harvesting, but at Heartland we make sure you get the healthiest quality seafood.
From the boat to your table, all of our wild caught seafood is flash/quick frozen right at the moment of harvesting to seal in nutrients and bring you that just-out-of-the-ocean flavor. For more information, see the “Our Products” section.
