Our Partners

Here at Duke's, we take meat seriously. We make it our goal, every day, to bring our customers the absolute finest meat products available, including Certified Angus Beef®, USDA Prime beef, Snake River Farms® American Wagyu, and Duroc Pork.

Certified Angus Beef®

Since 1978, the @CertifiedAngusBeef brand has served as the original, and very best, brand of Angus beef. Thanks to its 10 quality standards and abundant marbling, each cut is exceptionally juicy, tender and flavorful. The brand’s standards are so strict, in fact, that only 3 in 10 Angus cattle meet them and earn the brand’s distinctive name and logo. Look for the logo at Duke's Premium Meats for your sign of quality. Visit the Certified Angus Beef® website for more information.

Snake River Farms

Snake River Farms and Double R Ranch are both premium brands from Agri Beef, a family-owned company with over 50 years of experience in the beef industry. Our founder, Robert Rebholtz, Sr, spent his childhood summers working at a Basque lamb operation in Stockton, CA. It is here he developed his passion of ranching and livestock that would shape the course of his life. In 1968, he purchased Snake River Cattle Feeders and founded Agri Beef with the ambitious goal of producing the world's highest quality beef. A small, family operation at the start, Agri Beef gradually expanded to include every step of the beef supply chain, from ranch to table. We are headquartered in Boise, ID and have 12 locations throughout Idaho and Washington. As happens so often in a family-run business, the day-to-day leadership of the company has passed on from father to sun. Today Robert Rebholtz, Jr. continues to build on his father's vision and the core values of Agri Beef–leadership, integrity, and innovation–to create exceptional beef in harmony with the environment and our Northwest ranching traditions.

USDA Prime

USDA Prime Beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has slightly abundant to abundant marbling, and is generally sold in hotels and restaurants. Prime roasts and steaks are excellend for broiling, roasting or grilling.

Certified Duroc Pork

Duroc is more than just pork. It is a breed of more flavorful pig, that produces some of the most tender, succulent, juicy, and delicious pork available. Try our St. Louis-style Duroc Pork Ribs.

R-C Ranch

R-C Ranch was founded in Bailey’s Prairie, Texas by two lifelong friends with backgrounds in ranching and beer. Long before farm-to-table food was a popular movement, they were searching for the best quality farm food available and raising it themselves on the ranch.

Today, the vision is simple: provide families, foodies, chefs, business owners and restauranteurs with the best beef, pork, wagyu, chicken, lamb, goat and wild game from the best family farms in Texas. Delivered safely, right to your kitchen.

Having R-C Ranch as a partner connects you to the food source, the families producing this beautiful food. Knowing where your food comes from will make your story more meaningful, the experience more valuable to your family or customers. In addition, R-C Ranch meats are the best meats you will ever taste. 

US Wellness Meats

Back in the mid-1990's, several farm families came together to form Grassland Beef. The mission was to bring to market a more nutritious selection of meats from cleaner, greener, sustainable farms. The family farm was fast becoming a thing of the past and needed a jumpstart. In order to stay a step ahead, the farm families of Grassland Beef had begun to experiment with time honored land management techniques, employing rotational grazing, building soil biodiversity and planting native forages. The cattle loved the new conditions and salad bar diet.
Lab tests on the meats exceeded expectations. Results showed Grassland Beef's grass-fed, grass-finished beef had significantly higher nutrient content than typical, conventionally raised cattle, containing higher levels of healthy Omega-3’s, Conjugated Linoleic Acid, branch chain amino acids, and vitamins.

Quality starts from the ground up and in the case of meats, soil quality and forage are vitally important. Grass-fed and grass-finished meats have a different nutritional makeup. Better food, better nutrition and better health means more energy, and better overall quality of life.

In 2006, Marian Burros, of the New York Times, ran a food series examining grass-fed beef and its producers. She reviewed the meats from various suppliers and gave her unsolicited opinions in the series. “It has taken me three years to find a piece of grass-fed beef that is tender, juicy, meaty and available online… the steaks from Grassland Beef [now U.S. Wellness Meats] are satisfyingly delicious.”

Since inception, Grassland Beef has become vertically integrated and a leader in the sustainable foods market. As one of the first online grocers specializing in healthier, nutrient rich foods, Grassland Beef raises the beef cattle on family farms, processes the meat from primal cuts, and packages and ships the product throughout the United States and Canada.

Grassland Beef resides in a small community in Northeast Missouri (Canton) employing local meat cutters, warehouse, packing & shipping crews, customer service and marketing staff. John Wood is the managing partner and 5th generation farmer.

Grassland Beef specializes in nutrient rich, 100% grass-fed beef, lamb, bison, and dairy, wild-caught seafood, free range poultry, heritage pork and more! We have over 350 items in our online store. Thanks for your consideration.
