Hatch-to-Harvest Traceability

The vast majority of our birds spend their entire life on the farm, where we can tend every aspect of their health & wellbeing with utmost care & respect. With the 2022 addition of our on-site, USDA-inspected processing facility, American Ostrich Farms has closed the loop on our "hatch to harvest" supply chain.

Our products travel directly from our farm to your freezer, allowing us to guarantee AOF ostrich steaks, roasts & filets are the finest, freshest, and most consistent on the market.

Cooking Tips from Chef Mark

Please Note: Our ostriches are allowed to develop as nature intended - on their own time, with no artificial growth promoters, steroids, or other funny business. Because each bird is unique in its size & build, and all of our steaks are cut by hand, slight variation will occur.

All package weights are approximate.
