Looking for something exciting to offer at your next backyard BBQ or your restaurant for your more adventurous customers or friends? How about Alligators Inc’s tenderized alligator meat! Our alligators are professionally farm raised in South Florida at our family owned and operated farm and processed in our on-site state certified and inspected HACCP compliant facility.
Our alligators are raised indoors in climate-controlled buildings and fed the best custom blended feed (56% protein and high fat) assuring an excellent result. Our alligators are NOT fed any growth hormones or steroids. They are NOT soaked in any preservatives such as Sodium Tripolyphosphate.
Our tenderized alligator meat is tenderized twice and packaged in 2.5-pound vacuum sealed packages. They are shipped frozen in custom insulated shipping boxes with dry ice and cooking instructions.
Alligator meat is an excellent choice for health-conscious friends and patrons. They are packed with protein even more than chicken, beef, or pork. Alligator is a lean white meat with a mild flavor like chicken and is low in fat and cholesterol. The tail contains most of the white meat, but the back loins, neck, and ribs are excellent as well. The legs contain a darker meat with a slightly more game taste.
We ship on every Monday and Tuesday.
