Over 150 years ago, Gustavus F. Swift took a loan for $20 so he could build the brand that is now 1855 Black Angus beef. JBS has grown from that humble beginning to the 1855 Black Angus beef program, and now, only one in eight cattle meet the standards to become USDA Certified in the 1855 brand. You can always expect only the highest quality from 1855 beef.

Halperns' 1855 Premium Black Angus Beef program goes beyond typical Angus programs. Our beef is aged a minimum of 21 to 45+ days because we're committed to delivering superior marbling, maximum tenderness and a truly remarkable flavor that has sustained us for over 50 years.
