What's the ultimate way to tell your Dad "Thanks for being awesome"? A nice piece of meat. But for Father's Day, the run-of-the-mill meat you buy for weeknight grilling isn't going to cut it. Luckily for you, there's a slew of awesome online sources for such special occasion steaks.
Here are the steaks he wants, delivered right to his door:
What started as an 11-acre ranch just outside of San Francisco now has a network of over 700 farms and ranches around the country. Niman Ranch only sells 100% Angus beef that's been raised on a vegetarian diet and free of hormones and antibiotics.
Try the hearty top sirloin or go for the Elite Eight Steak Sampler to try a combination of their rib eyes and boneless strip steaks. They deliver Tuesday-Friday only, so order by Wednesday at 8:00am CST for arrival on Friday.
What makes Heritage Foods USA different from all the rest is that they only sell meat from heritage breed animals. They work with 75 family farms to source rare breeds—like Akaushi cattle, which originated in Japan, and Highland cattle, originally from Scotland—that are in danger of extinction. Splurge on the Rib Eye Variety Pack, which includes seven steaks from four different breeds, or go for a mix of rib eye, strip, and tenderloin in the Steak Lover's Package. Order no later than Thursday at 8:00am EST for delivery Friday.

Everything that Greensbury Market sells is organic and 100% grass-fed. All of the meat is sourced from small farms who pasture-raise their cattle and never give them any antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones.
With such high quality standards, it's easy to think that this meat comes at a premium, but it's actually quite affordable. Try the crowd-pleasing skirt steak or the lean top sirloin, both of which have been dry-aged for 21 days. They deliver Monday - Wednesday so order by Tuesday at 6:00pm EST for arrival by Wednesday.
