Ostrich is a red meat, very similar in taste and texture to beef.  Ostrich is much lower in fat and cholesterol than beef and is actually slightly lower in fat and cholesterol than either chicken or turkey while being higher in protein than all three.  The American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association have both recommended ostrich for its health benefits.

We raise our ostrich on our own farm in Andover, New Jersey. Our feed program is based on organic alfalfa and corn, with no antibiotics or growth hormones ever, ever used.  An all-natural product!  These birds are free roaming until they are 10 to 14 months old, producing the most tender and delicious meat available.  Our ostrich has won numerous culinary awards for "outstanding quality."

Each adult bird yields approximately 75-90 pounds of meat, which comes primarily from the upper leg, back and thigh muscles.   Leg muscles are primarily used for Ostrich Burgers and upper muscles are used in steaks & fillets.

As with most cuts of very lean meat, ostrich is best cooked quickly over very high heat to seal in the juices.  Cooking more than medium rare is not recommended.
