Translated from Japanese: I’m very happy to be able to buy minced lean New Zealand beef. Very flavorful and not greasy. My grandson, who loves meat, doesn't eat other minced meat, but the hamburger steak made from this meat seemed to be delicious to him. I'd like to order again.

Translated from Japanese: Although it’s lean meat that is low in fat and healthy, it’s very satisfying to eat.
It looks like a high quality hamburger when cooked with onions without breaking it into small pieces.
I’m happy to reorder at this price.

Translated from Japanese: It's really low in fat, it's delicious and I really like it. I can't think of buying meat except for here at Horizon Farms' shop. I used to buy meat at a butcher shop in a supermarket or department store, but I should have bought lean meat. When I opened the pack, the fat part was hidden behind the lean meat, which made me angry. This happened often. Marbled meat, which has more fat than lean meat, is out of the question, so I will continue to buy this low-fat minced meat.

Translated from Japanese: It was more than I expected. After thawing, I only added salt and pepper and garlic powder and mixed it. A delicious hamburger without sauce was made.

Grass-Fed Grain-Finished Ground Beef 80/20 New Zealand (340g)

Horizon Farms
BF166

You get a 340g (12oz.) pack of the finest ground beef. 100% from the sirloin, aka. rump. A cut usually reserved for roasts or even steaks. This ground beef is on the lean side at a 80/20 meat to fat ratio. We never add fat or pork nor do we use trimmings. You'll notice there are no gristles or chunks of fat. We use directly imported chilled meat that has never been frozen before! Processing and shock-freezing take place locally in Japan. This way we ensure the best quality and 100% traceability. Extremely clean and tender ground beef like you have probably never tasted it before. This is so good, on some lazy Sundays we simply add sea salt, freshly ground pepper, ground cumin, and then stir-fry without adding oil and use the mix as a topping on toasted baguettes - 5-star cuisine at home. Please note that the color is darker than what you are used to seeing in the supermarkets due to the vacuum pack and the nature of the rump cut. This has no effect on the quality, safety, taste, or smell of the product.

New Zealand Beef

Our New Zealand beef comes from the Canterbury area of the southern island of New Zealand. The cows are raised on local ranches (referred to as cattle stations in New Zealand) which are family-owned and run. The animals are grass-fed on open pastures their entire lives. Then, 200 days before harvesting, the cows are fed a mix of vegetarian feed consisting of all-locally sourced GMO-free natural grains, silage, hay, molasses, oilseed meals and legumes for a consistent beef flavor and texture. At no point are the animals confined in tight spaces or are force-fed. The finishing feedlots are very spacious and animals are absolutely free to roam on over 6000 square meters. At no point are growth-hormones or antibiotics used.

Safe, secure and delicious!

Translated from Japanese: This is a reorder. I like chicken, but I heard that chicken on the market is often given various medicines such as antibiotics and hormones, so I was looking for safe chicken. The price is a little high, but it’s delicious and you can eat it with confidence. I would like to purchase it again as a good source of protein.

I love chicken

Translated from Japanese: Chicken meat like chicken thighs, chicken breast and chicken wings are really delicious, even if you cook them with only salt and pepper.
But I like chicken thighs the most.
The telephone correspondence was polite and I was very pleased with it. I’m looking forward to ordering again.

I found good meat

I’m surprised this is real chicken

Translated from Japanese: I started eating pesticide-free vegetables, and I was looking for safe grazing chicken and found this store here. What was the chicken I had until now? One pack contains 500gr, but it was cut into 5 pieces, so I didn't have to cut it into small pieces. First of all, I was surprised when I put the knife in. The chicken is messy when I put it in, but it’s easy to cut. Of course, the taste is delicious. I fried it in a frying pan with a lot of olive oil without any special seasoning, and it was very delicious. I ate it as it was without sauce. I’ve always liked lighter seasoning, so it was delicious without any. I was satisfied with the taste of the chicken itself.

Arrived the next day. I ate it immediately

Translated from Japanese: I thawed it in a frying pan with laurel and sake while it’s frozen, then rinsed everything off with water and cooked them crispy. Everyone in my family seasoned them themselves freely. With mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar, ketchup, pepper, olive oil, butter, salt, and soy sauce. I’m grateful for the lack of bones and pepper and soy sauce made it very delicious. Thank you.

Translated from Japanese: Because Japan is surrounded by the sea, you might think this is fish from overseas. It’s so delicious. My family keeps cooking, baking and steaming it. Lately, we’ve been frying it. Once we run out, we’d like to order again.

Translated from Japanese: Blue hake is the fish that my kids love most when it comes to school lunches, but it's hard to get at stores, so I buy it here. This blue hake is thick and very delicious when fried.

So big it surprised me

Translated from Japanese: The legs are very big and fine. They’re filling.
Because it’s chicken raised by Bostock Brothers, it’s very delicious just like the other kinds!
In terms of size, it seems that there will be a lot of turns for celebrations.
I thought it was necessary to carefully check the inside while cooking because they’re so big.
Thank you to Horizon Farms and Bostock Brothers.

I’m impressed!

Translated from Japanese: I think it’s my first time eating free-range chicken. The shape was firm and it felt really filling. This amount of deliciousness surprised me! I’m shocked. I might not be able to have chicken from the supermarket anymore. I’m really thankful that you’re providing organic meat at an affordable price.

Translated from Japanese: I have been very curious about this one, so I’m ordering it together with the chicken liver which I had before. Our oven is not in a good condition, so I boiled it like samgyetang (a dish)! The part it was cut from is different (from what is used for samgyetang), but without fail I could make a delicious soup. The meat itself had no bad smell, was soft and really delicious.

The flavor of chicken is wow!!!

Translated from Japanese: I added simple flavors like onion, salt and pepper and baked it in the oven until turned brown. My husband also said “How is this meat so delicious!” in shock while eating. This meat’s level is so high it made us not want to eat it from anywhere else. Next time, I want to try a different kind of seasoning, so I will order again!

Amazingly delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I cooked it after simply marinating it with herbs, lemon, salt and pepper and olive oil. It was really delicious. There was no unpleasant smell at all, the skin is thin and became crispy, it also stayed in shape. It’s a big difference from chicken sold in ordinary supermarkets. I will order again!
