GROWIN’ GRASS EATERS…

We raise organic, grass fed, Black Angus cattle. Our herd is composed of mother cows, their offspring and young steers. The cattle spend summers in the high county of the Uinta Mountains and come down to the lower pastures during the fall, winter and spring.

We choose to ranch organically and grass finish our cattle because we believe these management practices are best to the land, the animals, and for us. The USDA Organic Certification looks after holistic land management practices and the long-term health of the ecosystem. Grass finishing is best for cattle health as well as for the nutrition of the meat. We work with dogs and horses to gather and move our cattle because we believe they do a better job keeping the cattle settled and healthy as opposed to motorized tools. We consider and review each element of ranching (land, water, animal, people) to make sure our practices are best for everyone. No single certification or practice considers all of ranching, so we put together our own mix of ‘best practices,’ from the weed-eating cashmere goats, to the NRCS Conservation Plan.
