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.

At Halperns', our commitment to excellence goes beyond the ordinary. With over 50 years of experience, our 1855 Premium Black Angus Beef program ensures a superior eating experience with each bite. Our beef is meticulously aged for a minimum of 21 days, guaranteeing maximum tenderness and remarkable flavor.

The Unparalleled Quality of the 1855 Brand™

Halperns' 1855 Brand Premium Black Angus Beef program sets a new standard for excellence in Angus beef. Hand-selected from the finest Angus cattle, our beef is consistently graded upper 2/3 USDA Choice, with the option for USDA Prime available upon request. Each cut is aged for a minimum of 21 days, resulting in bright cherry red lean meat that is finely textured and bursting with flavor. Our program is USDA certified, ensuring the highest quality and safety standards for our customers.
