The impressive size of a whole ostrich leg requires an appropriate cooking method. Most customers use a large smoker or grill, as the legs are too big to fit in conventional household ovens. Be sure to baste throughout the cooking process.

Many of our first time customers have never had meat shipped directly to their door. These are some of the most common questions we receive about shipping.

Is the meat frozen?
Our meats are flash-frozen immediately after harvest and remain 100% airtight in a state of deep freeze until shipment, at which time they are carefully packaged with sufficient dry ice and renewable insulation to maintain our very high standards of food safety during shipment.

We calculate the amount of dry ice and insulation to use in every package based on the shipping address, shipping service, and the weather likely to be experienced en route to your door.

What if my meat thaws in transit?
While we strive to ensure every order arrives fully frozen, carrier delays do happen. The important thing to remember is that upon arrival, as long as the meat is still cold to the touch, it is perfectly safe and appropriate to put right into your freezer, or fully thaw to cook.

Buying frozen meat means you will have the extra step of thawing your meat but we promise, thawing ostrich is easy! The three options below are the safest, easiest methods to get fresh meat from the freezer to your plate.

  • Pull your filets or ground meat out of the freezer a day ahead of time and give it at least 24 hours in your refrigerator. A pound should take no longer than a day to fully thaw; our 4-6lb Ostrich Tip Roasts can take up to 3 days. Once thawed, meat is safe to use for at least 5 days.
  • Craving an awesome ostrich cut but forgot to pull it out to thaw? Thawing in cold water is much faster than the refrigerator, but requires more attention. This method requires a waterproof package or bag to keep water out of your meat. Once thawed, it is recommended that the meat be used right away and not refrozen prior to cooking.


The Healthiest Red Meat

Ostrich is higher in protein and iron than beef, and lower in fat and cholesterol than any other traditional animal protein.

The Highest Quality

All of our ostrich meat comes from 100% whole muscle cuts, with absolutely nothing added. Every package of ostrich meat is USDA inspected and flash-frozen at peak freshness.

All-American & Sustainable

Every ostrich is ethically raised, humanely harvested, and packaged on our environmentally sustainable farm in Idaho.


Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. 

American Ostrich Farms


Raising ostriches requires 1/3 the fresh water, 1/50th the land, and generates 1/10th the greenhouse gas emissions of cattle.

American Ostrich Farms


Our water-wise facilities, locally sourced feed, and systems to convert waste into chemical-free compost are just a few of the ways we conserve resources.

American Ostrich Farms


We utilize every possible byproduct and are continually looking for innovative ways to achieve a net-zero impact on the environment.

We go to great lengths to ensure our flock is healthy, happy, and humanely handled from hatch to harvest.
