Leading the industry since 1985.
Laura Freeman created Laura's Lean Beef in 1985 after taking the reins of her family farm in Kentucky. Laura was a pioneer in the cattle industry, making the brave choice to raise cattle without the use of added hormones or antibiotics, while the industry was increasing the use of hormones to speed the growth of livestock and provide bigger, fatter cattle more quickly.
Laura's interest in doing things differently didn't end there. As mindsets were changing about beef in a healthy diet Laura sought to meet the strict USDA standards for lean beef, producing beef containing no more than 10 grams of fat which would appeal to a low-fat diet. Her legacy lives on over 38 years later, as Laura's Lean strives to help busy families spend less time cooking and spend more time around the table, eating food they can feel good about.
We believe that it is best to raise cattle in the way that nature intended.
No added hormones or antibiotics
We don't believe in using antibiotics or growth hormones to speed the growth of cattle.
Our products are made from cattle with a vegetarian diet of grains and grasses.
