Santoni’s Marketplace is excited to introduce you to a new local company that we are now working with, Roseda Black Angus Farm.  We will be selling their all natural, dry-aged, black angus beef burgers as well as their all-natural beef hotdogs.   Roseda Farms is also a local, family-owned business like Santoni’s.  We have tried their products and hands down could taste the difference.  We are excited to share with you their story of how they began and their delicious products.

*From Simple Beginnings

In 1986, Ed Burchell embarked on what he thought would be the beginning of his retirement.  He bought a quite farm tucked in the hills of Monkton, Maryland, with his wife, Rosemary.  He even bought a few cows to graze the property, so that he wouldn’t even have to mow the grass.

Somewhere Along the Way

It did not take long for Ed to start thinking more seriously about his cows.  He quickly observed a clear inconsistency in his experiences with eating beef.  He became convinced that, with care and attention, he could create a better-tasting product.

Ed Meets Dean

Ed met cattle expert, Dean Bryant in 1996, and with that, Roseda Farm was born.  Dean taught Ed the essential elements of raising cattle for juiciness and tenderness.  He proved that with the right genetics, the right feeding, and the right watering and health practices, you could breed cattle that were superior from pasture to plate.

The Roseda Difference

Superior Breeding

Roseda cattle are specially chosen and bred based on their genetics.  They select Aberdeen Angus bull, also known as Black Angus bulls, based on traits that produce outcomes such as high-quality marbling, tenderness, and fat thickness.

All Natural

Roseda cattle are never fed growth hormones or antibiotics. They are grass-fed and grain finished-an all-natural diet of corn, alfalfa, hay, soybean meal and fresh water.


Once harvested, Roseda meat is dry aged for 14 to 21 days to give the beef a truly premium taste, removing moisture to bring flavor, tenderness, and juiciness throughout.   And it’s this process that sets Roseda apart from other beef.

Quality Farm to Fork

Roseda monitors their cattle from the embryo all the way to your plate for an unparalleled, mouthwatering craft beef experience.  Plus, over 50% of Roseda cattle qualify as Glatt Kosher-more than two times the rate of ordinary herds-a further testament of Roseda’s quality assurance and care for our animals.
