La Cense Beef

We are very excited by our new partnership with La Cense Beef. La Cense offers the best choice for grass fed beef because it is leaner, healthier, and has a superb taste.

La Cense Beef ("La Cense"), the leader in the grass fed beef industry and the only USDA Certified grass fed beef producer, is excited to announce an exciting new partnership with Glacier Park, Inc. Beginning in May, Glacier Park, Inc. will be serving exclusively La Cense Beef 100% All Natural Black Angus steakburgers in all of its restaurants.

Glacier Park, Inc. celebrating the National Park’s centennial year, selected La Cense as its grass fed beef provider given its exemplary grass fed production practices, the proximity of the local Montana-based
La Cense Ranch, and their shared values of honesty, integrity, and concern for the community and the environment.

“We are very excited by our new partnership with La Cense Beef. La Cense offers the best choice for grass fed beef because it is leaner, healthier, and has a superb taste, “ Glacier Park Corporate Executive Chef Michael Gorski said. “La Cense is also completely committed to and focused on the raising of cattle in the most natural and humane way.”

La Cense Beef is a pioneer in the grass fed beef industry. The first and only beef producer to receive the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) “Grass Fed Beef” certification, La Cense successfully endured a rigorous auditing process by third-party Verified Beef. The process included reviewing all ranching practices, its structure and management, training of employees, the inspection of all feeds, records and labels and the administration of all foods and drugs. The audit confirms La Cense cattle to be truly 100 percent grass fed, never exposed to antibiotics, animal by-products or growth promotants, never treated with hormones, and source and age verified. It is only with source and age verification that consumers can be assured that they know what they are buying and can trust specific marketing claims.

Grass fed beef has been recognized to be the best beef option for human health, the animal and the environment. According to numerous studies, grass fed beef is shown to be lower in total fat and calories than grain fed conventional beef. The higher Beta Carotene level in grass fed beef is helpful in reducing the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Grass fed beef is also higher in Omega-3 fatty acids essential for enhancing heart health and reducing the risk of arthritis, obesity, insulin resistance, allergies and autoimmune diseases.

La Cense Beef’s sustainable ranching management and practices used to raise grass fed cows also help keep cattle, air, land, and water healthy, and lower the carbon footprint. This is in direct contrast to industrial grain-based feedlot operations that foul the environment, expose cattle to inhumane conditions, require intensive consumption of fossil fuels and produce higher levels of environmental pollutants.

“We are delighted to team up with Glacier Park on bringing the Park’s patrons grass fed beef – a delicious, more healthful beef that brings the confidence in quality and process that only La Cense can offer. We are also thrilled that together our Montana-based Park and Ranch can bring very local product to Park visitors,” said La Cense founder and owner William Kriegel.
