My family loves Purple Ribbon Beef. It's noticeably better than store-bought beef. It's juicier, fuller, and has a fresher taste. I also love trying out new/local items from the General Store. They always have fun local products like candles, honey, and granola.
Great family with a great product. Buy local.
I bought a roast at the Clear Lake Farmer's Market. It went in the Crock-Pot with potatoes and carrots. It was awesome! Now I'm using the leftovers for Barley Soup!

I just grilled a couple tenderloins from Purple Ribbon Beef. The steaks were great. We highly recommend Purple Ribbon Beef.
My order arrived right on time and it was in perfect condition. Thank you. It's all for my husband so he is very pleased. Thank you for providing lowans the opportunity to get really fine beef at home. We will have some great meals.
My family bought some Ribeyes and New York strips last Saturday at the Ames Farmers Market. It was hands down the best steaks we have ever grilled! The marbling was perfect and made for the most tender and flavorful Saturday night dinner for the Father’s Day weekend! We will definitely be buying more meat in the future!
Big Success! Thank you! Delicious!
Your filets we're amazing!
Love this stuff. Basically replaces salt and pepper when cooking but a slightly better flavor. It’s worth a shot!
