We are committed to serving you a better beef for a better way of living
He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth.

Can't get any closer to nature than a beef raised on native grasses from birth to butcher
Being a family owned and operated cow/calf operation means we can trace back our herd over 100 years so not only are we claiming quality on "this beef" but on a long line of cattle
Our cattle are free of antibiotics, steroids, hormones, corn and wheat and raised in a low stress environment of sunshine and plentiful feed
Because of the strong immune systems these cows develop being in their natural element, consuming a large variety of grasses, plants, and weeds acceptable to their pallet and beneficial to their diet, and well as dwelling with equally healthy cattle means that not only are antibiotics not used but not needed
LOCALLY GROWN AND RAISED
ORGANIC BY NATURE
. . . But that could also mean you bought a steer at an auction, fed it alfalfa and no corn while you had it, and sold it as grass fed beef with the premium price. Alfalfa can be genetically modified and highly pesticided. You want cattle that have been raised on native grasses that have been untreated or tampered with from birth to butcher. It has been said that corn finished cows have better marbling, but corn is not natural to a cows diet, their digestive system was built to break down grasses. You want cattle that have never been fed any grain, corn or wheat.
What makes range raised cattle so truly unique among the beef industry? Our cattle are fed off the land from native grasses that have been untreated or tampered with. The secret to the quality of land pastured on lies with the bugs, the worms, the insects and the rain and their part in cultivating, growing, pollinating and fertilizing the ground.
