Upper Iowa Beef is a story about a community that came together because it believes we all have the right to know our farmers and know our food. We believe in providing humane care for our animals, in respecting the farmers who raise our cattle, and in providing transparent information to the families who will enjoy our beef at their dinner table.
Based in Lime Springs, Iowa (and originally known as Lime Springs Beef), we selected the name Upper Iowa Beef to reflect the customers and region we serve. We’re on a journey that involves sustainability, compassion, common sense, and bringing food production back to a local level.
Our state-of-the-art plant is the result of the efforts of hundreds of community members, local farmers and families, and municipal and state groups who believe in Iowa’s farmers—and who believe that by working together, we can enjoy a great steak or burger knowing that every step of the process respects farm, food, and family.
