A long, long time ago...
Piedmontese beef is an Italian-heritage breed of cattle deeply intertwined with the robust history of fine wines and rich cuisines of the Piedmont region in northwestern Italy, tracing its roots back to the 1600s. Hundreds of years later and 5,000 miles from Piedmont.
Certified Piedmontese raises all-natural, healthy Piedmontese cattle on the mixed-grass prairies of the Midwest with fresh water from the Ogallala Aquifer.
Progressive ranchers imported the first Piedmontese cattle to North America in the mid-1970s over a five-year process. Today, the Piedmontese breed represents less than 1% of all cattle in North America.
Certified Piedmontese provides the country with a superior product with a reputation for eating quality that rivals Wagyu and premium Angus products, but without the heavy marbling and big pockets of fat that many consumers have come to associate with premium beef.
The Certified Piedmontese program stands by transparency and accountability throughout its operations and is source-verified by Where Food Comes From, Inc.
As a ranch-to-fork operation rooted in the dedication to our land, ranchers, cattle, consumers, and products, Certified Piedmontese has set the bar for sustainable practices from ranch to corporate office.
