The Galician meat is the most typical expression of the regional zootechnical production of Monteforte de Lemo, province of Lugo (Spain), and is an excellent example of the gastronomic richness of Galicia.
The animals, grown on household farms called "minifundio", can reach 7 years of life and weigh even 900 kg, an unreachable goal for a beef used in the standard production process.
The animals live in complete tranquility, without stress factors that can influence the taste of the meat itself, and are fed exclusively with natural foods.
The taste of meat, considering the proximity to the ocean of the pastures, has a typical and natural flavor, which makes it, together with its mix of tenderness and right consistency, literally inimitable.
Its meat is distinguished by its intense flavor, its pale red color, and its golden yellow fat, as the animals are fed with corn and the proteins give the fat this color.
It is a meat for demanding palates, looking for unique and special sensations in a beef.
