Our Organic Plant

Now Available for Custom Processing

At Dakota Beef, we believe it is important that all our organic beef be processed at our own facilities. This allows us to control the quality and the safety of our beef and ensures that we can deliver the most tender and flavorful organic beef products to our customers. In 2003, we acquired the first of three planned processing facilities—this one in Howard, South Dakota. To ensure the highest levels of customer service and safety, the Company is taking advantage of new processing technologies by investing in the highest quality, state-of-the-art equipment available to deliver the safest and freshest organic beef products to consumers. Our quality assurance team at the plant has set strict standards for all products and procedures that meet or surpass industry requirements. These rigid sanitation requirements are maintained by our staff. In addition, on-premises USDA-FSIS inspectors complement our quality assurance staff.
