If you ever dine at Kapa Hale, you’ll see that Chef Lee uses Paniolo Cattle Company brand grass-fed beef by Parker Ranch in dishes on the menu.

“My style of cuisine revolves around the community, and for me, Paniolo Cattle Company just makes sense,” says Chef Lee. “Parker Ranch has been tending to its herds and pastures since 1847, and their paniolo take pride in tending to the herds and raising local grass-fed beef like no other. It’s really about the quality and consistency of this locally grown product that makes me choose Paniolo Cattle Company by Parker Ranch.”

Paniolo Cattle Company is Parker Ranch’s local grass-fed beef program, which launched statewide in 2013-2014. “Paniolo” harkens back to an era where King Kamehameha III brought over Mexican Vaquero to share their knowledge of riding and roping.

The beef is sold locally in all Hawaii Safeway stores. It’s 100 percent grass-fed and 100 percent local. The secret to producing the finest tasting, all-natural beef begins with high quality, superior Angus genetics. Couple this with nutrient-rich forage found on some of the most beautiful islands in the world, expert animal husbandry backed by over 160 years of ranching experience, heritage and innovation, it all adds up to a dining experience that you can enjoy with confidence.
