Kentucky Cattlemen’s Ground Beef is fresh, natural beef produced by Kentucky farm families.

The beef is ground and packaged by Creation Gardens of Louisville and distributed from Kroger’s Louisville distribution center.

The beef is a product of Beef Solutions, a limited liability company owned by the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association (KCA).

The ground beef product is the result of years of ongoing discussions among the KCA, the Kentucky Beef Council, the Kentucky Beef Network, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA), the Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy, Kroger, producers, and processors.

From farm to table, Kentucky cattlemen from 111 farms in 44 counties have sold over 587,000 pounds of local ground beef.

Kentucky is the leading beef cattle state east of the Mississippi River with more than 38,000 producers and more than 1 million beef cows.
