Our story is best defined by our mission. A mission that was born from truly understanding the future of the meat industry and the quality it demands.

Back in 1963, a man by the name of Martin Linz opened a small neighborhood butcher shop. What started as that small town shop has now grown into one of the premier meat purveyors in the United States, Meats by Linz. Over more than 50 years of business taught the Linz family that consistency and quality would always be the most important factors in this industry. The demand for quality meat that consistently hits the mark on consumer expectation is what matters most.

In order to meet those expectations, something had to change. Actually, almost everything had to change in terms of sourcing. We knew that to truly provide consistency, real consistency, that the genetics and the source of the animals we harvested had to be spot on. In knowing that, the Linz family set out to change the game. In Early 2012 the Linz Heritage Angus program had become a reality and our journey of breeding Black Angus cattle with the finest genetics in the world had begun.

It is now our ongoing mission to continue building this lineup of superior genetics, not only to produce some of the most consistently marbled Angus in the world, but also share these leading genetics with like minded ranchers.
