Amy’s Grass-Fed, Grass-Finished Beef thrive on native grass from birth to harvest. Amy and her husband, Todd, have been grass-finishing Angus-crossbred beef for 18 years directly serving local consumers along the Colorado Front Range. Our cattle “finish,” in their second year, on high-altitude mountain pastures in western Larimer County. These lands are lush with native grasses, plants, and forbs that provide a nourishing and serene environment. The end result is content cattle that consistently produce great tasting, healthy meat.
Our beef cattle are sourced and hand-selected from two, upstanding, family-owned ranches that raise healthy, hardy animals grown on grass in their rural, native pastures. In winter they are supplemented with hay, to insure a natural forage diet. Humane methods are always used to move the cattle frequently to holistically maintain our lands and waterways that also feed local and migrating wildlife.
We are not USDA certified organic but raise only forage-fed (no grain, no soy, no corn), hormone and antibiotic-free meat. Our tender and deliciously flavored beef is lean and nutritious, providing a distinct flavor that only high-altitude grass-finished cattle produce.
We sell whole, half and quarters of beef. A limited supply of assorted cuts, burger, and organ meats may also be available in early December. The meat is ready for pickup, or delivery can be arranged from October to December. We harvest and process our cattle at a small, custom plant located in Evans, CO where the meat is dry aged for 14–21 days and USDA inspected. Orders can be made by phone, or complete the website order form and mail.
Please visit our website and read what some of our customers have to say!

vaccinations and de-worming as necessary. Our birds and sheep are happy!

Dirty Spur Cattle Company raises pure bred Texas Longhorns. All of our animals are born and raised right here in Highland, Utah and never leave one of our pastures. They are grass fed from the day they are born to the day they are slaughtered, and are never given any hormones or antibiotics.
We process our meat at the only USDA certified slaughter house in Utah County and we deliver our meat right to your home. You can trust that these cows are all-natural, hormone-free and never given anything but grass to eat all the days of their lives.
Our meat is extremely lean and has been tested at 92–98% lean. Thanks to Texas Longhorn beef, today's health-conscious consumer doesn't have to avoid tender juicy steaks. Not only is Longhorn beef leaner than that of other breeds, it is also lower in saturated fats. The flavorful Longhorn beef has less cholesterol and calories than chicken. Definitely good news for a healthy lifestyle!
"Lean beef is good for you – and the key word is lean. Longhorn meat on the average, contains 10 percent less saturated fat than that of other cattle. That puts lean Longhorn beef on par with skinned boneless white meat of chicken and that fact may come as a surprise to many dieticians." —Dr. Joseph Graham, Cardiovascular Surgeon at St. John's Medical Center in Joplin, Missouri.
We sell our beef in quarters, halves and full cows. You can also purchase ground beef from us in any quantity at any time of year. You can read more about the amazing qualities of Texas Longhorn lean meat on our website. We'd love to talk to you more about these amazing animals. Please give us a call.

Eagles Wing Natural Bison exclusively eat the legendary North Park hay growing on our ranch – they don’t finish on grain and they never eat hay from somewhere else. The result is a signature sweetness and tender texture you’ve never experienced with any other meat. You really can taste the difference, and your body will feel it too.
100% Grass means the stellar nutritional benefits of our Bison are as good as it gets. And you can feel good knowing our Bison live a dignified existence, happily munching the same grass they have for thousands of years. Many of our customers say they’ll never eat another red meat again!

antibiotics, growth hormones, grain or grain-based feeds, chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

We take great pride in offering competitive priced grass-finished beef that is pure and simply beef and tastes great as well.
We understand how daunting it can be for new and old customers to navigate the process of buying grass-finished beef. We want this to be an easy and enjoyable experience.

5280 Meat. Hi! We're Rachel and Ty Gates, owners of 5280 Meat (beef, pork, lamb and chicken). Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. Our story is simple; we wanted to provide our family with quality, sustainable meats at an affordable price.
Like many of you, we became frustrated shopping at our local supermarket when they failed to explain the origins of the meat and whether it was treated humanely without the use of hormones or antibiotics. We always returned home puzzled that quality meat was nearly inaccessible and sparsely available. With Ty's experience as a sixth-generation Colorado rancher, we began raising and processing our own animals for our family. Still feeling the need to fill the void in the marketplace, we decided to open an online store to make premium meats available to everyone.
From here, 5280 Meat was born with our belief that superior quality meats should be available to everyone. We are happy to be able to share our finest meat products with you and always appreciate your interest and support for healthy, sustainable meats.
5280 Meat Promise
We pledge to provide a wide selection of premium meats accessible to everyone. Our animals are raised with the highest regards, never treated with hormones or antibiotics and always allowed to roam free in their natural habitat, the way nature intended. We strongly believe that happier animals are healthier animals and we remain committed to providing our customers with the best-tasting, cleanest meats possible.
We offer FREE nationwide shipping on every order via FedEx ground and home delivery plus 25% off all orders $100 or more with code SAVE25 at checkout.

Green Place Ranch raises natural grassfed beef in
SouthWest Colorado on the Uncompaghre Plateau.

for all of our infrastructure requirements. This includes water pumping,
ranch headquarters, home and office. We practice rotational grazing on

We raise our beef using only pasture and ranch raised
stored forage (hay). We use no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, hormones,
grain or grain based feed in raising these animals. We do not confinement
feed, and all of our animals are raised in a low stress, open environment.
We sell halves and wholes directly to our customers,
with processing by both state- and USDA-inspected facilities, as chosen
by the customer. We deliver to the processor and the customer picks up
their order when ready.
We are based on Colorado's Western Slope and are
happy to serve customers within a 300 mile radius. We have our own USDA
approved label (granted in May of 2007) and are providing selected local
(our 300 mile radius) natural and health food stores with our products
on a piece/cut basis.
Individual customers will enjoy a considerable discount
from piece prices by purchasing by the half or whole. If you wish to
buy a half, we can match you up with another customer that also wishes
a half. We are also now selling Beef Paks in $250 and $500 orders. These

produce and we will also have eggs, chickens and turkeys this
year to be offered at the Montrose Farmers market or available from the
ranch directly to the customer on a pre-order/pick-up basis.

beef and bison. It is a naturally lean, low in fat, with a healthy fat

fiber and are excellent pack animals.

Hanover Dexter Cattle Company at Rockin'
B Ranch began raising grass-fed, organic (non-certified), registered
Dexter cattle on 100 acres nearly 10 years ago. We soon discovered
that independent taste tests and nutritional research demonstrated
that Dexter beef had exceptional taste and tenderness and outstanding
nutritional benefits as compared to larger breeds—even Angus.
We still sell by the half and whole, but with fewer families having
a dedicated freezer, we began selling Dexter beef in small packages
and shipping throughout the U.S.
Our animals graze native pastures of eastern Colorado
and are fed a variety of native hays during the winter months. As stewards
of nature we never administer antibiotics or growth hormones to our cattle
nor ever use chemicals on the land. By moving the herd every 5 days during
the growing season we allow the grasses to recover and rejuvenate; the
cattle consistently drink from fresh water sources year-round. Spring
calves are born in the pastures as nature intended. Cattle are never
confined and fed grain or similar supplemental feed unless a customer
requests grain-finished and purchases the entire animal.
We have daily contact with all our animals. That
familiarity creates a herd that is gentle and contented, resulting in
more flavorful meat. The short distance to the USDA processing plant
in Colorado Springs reduces the stress of transportation. We ship our
variety packaged meat in reusable insulated boxes with reusable freezer
bricks, eliminating any chemical concerns with dry-ice. Please contact
us for delivery options.
Beef is usually processed in October/November when
they are about 20 months of age. Please do not wait until the Fall
to order as quantities are limited.

at 7,000 feet in elevation, is a 100-acre diversified farm operation
that includes grass-fed pastured poultry, layer hens, hogs, turkeys,
beef cattle, horses, vegetable garden, greenhouse, a bakery, and hay
The farm is situated outside Norwood, CO, on a mesa-top

The farm markets its products via direct sales to customers in Norwood,
Telluride and the surrounding region, and through farmer’s markets
(see Colorado Beyond the Farm).

the grass pastures that have been established here in the region for
the past 100 years.
We encourage our customers to always seek out and
buy locally produced foodstuffs, especially if they are grass-fed. The
benefits are numerous: a strengthening of agrarian communities; the overall
ecosystem benefits; the consumer is severing the umbilical cord from
the corporate giants; sustainable food systems are created; open space
is preserved. Perhaps most importantly, as a consumer of locally produced
foods, you connect to the land and the soil in a special and intimate
way otherwise not available.

James Ranch. Three generations of James’s
and their families welcome the accelerated interest in their grassed-based,
organically, locally produced meats, cheese, vegetables & flowers,
eggs, and trees. All our products are sustainably grown
on the ranch we have stewarded for forty-eight years in the Animas
Valley, 10 miles north of Durango, Colorado.
We currently sell 100% grass-fed and finished beef,
from Red Angus cows—by the side or by the steak—never away
from our supervision until on your grill. Our artisan cheeses are
made of raw milk from our Jersey cows raised and milked right on the
ranch. We’ve been making these distinctive cheeses over eight years;
they stand alone among Colorado homestead cheeses. Our pastured chickens
produce brown & green eggs sought after by our local customers
for their outstanding taste. We devote six acres to growing vegetables,
flowers, and fruits that defy the imagination and short growing
season of our high mountain valley. We don’t expect our customers
to eat our spruce trees, but recommend these mature, naturally grown,
native trees for your landscape needs.
Both our beef herd and dairy herd are completely
grass based. All of our animals are raised without the use of chemical
fertilizers, pesticides, hormones or antibiotics. We strongly believe
in farming and ranching sustainably and improving the land whenever possible.
We love to have our customers see what we do and learn of our holistic
practices that support the healthy land, crops, animals, and families.
During the summer from June thru October we have guided tours two days
per week, using an electric cart for ease of transport and enjoyment.
Our products are available at our own Ranch Market
(Open M-F, 11:00-6:00, May-Oct. and open Saturdays 1-4:30, during the
winter). We also make our products available at the Durango and Telluride

restaurants in the area. Visit our website for more specifics about each
product. Contact us about shipping possibilities.

Kretsinger Beef (KW Farms) – We began grazing animals in 1997 for fertility on our organic crops. Over time we have shifted entirely to forage production and finishing cattle on our organic Alpine pastures in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. We use ultrasound testing to assist in genetic selection to produce animals that will be tender and finish well, in a timely fashion entirely on grass at high altitude. By feeding high quality irrigated grasses, forbes, and brassicas we are able to achieve generously marbled beef.
We view our business as a worthy and rewarding collaboration with the communities of soil, animals, and people. Many of our customers consider themselves vegetarians who break their fast only for righteous meat. We take great pride in raising what they call “meat vegetarians can eat.”
We strive to honor the animals at every stage - from what they eat to the way in which they are slaughtered. We choose our processor for the quality of craftsmanship, locality, and humane treatment of animals. We are currently using Mel’s Meat Processing, a family owned USDA facility here in the San Luis Valley.
We deliver to Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Alamosa, and Monte Vista every other month. Our deliveries are like a combination family reunion and drug deal. You place your order on our website. We meet at the designated time and place. You give us money. We give you meat (which is frozen). Everybody visits for a little while and we all go home happy.
We hope you enjoy your supper as much as we enjoyed growing it.

The Lazy P Ranch in
northern Colorado offers a very unique way to put naturally
raised, home-grown beef on the family table. The cattle
are born on the ranch and are raised without the use of chemicals,
hormones, or antibiotics. The cattle at the Lazy P Ranch
are allowed to graze freely with minimal confinement as they
are rotated through irrigated pastures. This practice keeps
both the cattle and the pasture in top condition at all times
by never putting either in a stressful situation.
Families visit the ranch and pick an individual
calf that will be tagged with their name. As the animal matures on the
grass pasture, it is supplemented with quality, home-grown feed. Families
are encouraged to visit the ranch throughout the feeding process and
watch as their beef is grown and finished to optimal weight and condition.
When a family's animal approaches the end of the feeding process, the
family works one on one with the meat processor of their choice to ensure
they receive the cuts and package weights that best fit their needs.
Since the Lazy P herd is relatively small, each animal is given the best
care possible with the emphasis on quality rather than quantity.

Maytag Mountain Ranch cattle:
organically raised, grass-finished beef. A truly exceptional
taste experience marrying natural goodness with tender robust
Our cattle are born and raised in the beautiful Wet
Mountain Valley in the shadow of Colorado's spectacular Sangre de Cristo
Mountains. Maytag Mountain Ranch's 2953 acres are lush and green; its
days warm and nights cool. Our management intensive rotation grazing
system ensures they have plenty of fresh, protein rich grass to eat.
Our pastures are never artificially fertilized. Our
cattle drink ice-cold spring water—so clean and pure it has been
tested safe for people to drink. We NEVER use hormones and NEVER use
antibiotics. Our cattle are not taken to the feedlot to be "finished." Instead
they fatten on natural grass, the way nature intended.
Maytag Mountain Ranch Beef has higher levels of Omega
3 fatty acids, which lower the risk of heart disease, and which may reduce
the risk of cancer. It is lower in total fat than beef from conventionally
raised (corn finished) cattle, resulting in fewer calories. This makes
our beef a wonderful, healthy food for people and, best of all, it tastes
great! For more information visit our website.

At Pure Poultry, every chicken we sell is raised on our farm, from chick to adult. They are brooded in a warm, clean environment until they are feathered enough and the weather is warm enough for them to go outside. Once they're outside, they are allowed to forage for bugs and other things chickens love. They are never injected with anything, including antibiotics or hormones. Their diet is supplemented with organic, non-GMO, soy-free, corn-free feed. They also receive fodder sprouted from organic seeds right here on our farm. To ensure the birds are healthy and happy, we give them supplements of activated charcoal and flax. As a preventative measure, their water is supplemented with crushed garlic and apple cider vinegar. Each bird receives an ample amount of living space and is allowed to roam free on fresh pasture every day. At night, they are kept in a dry, clean chicken coop where they are safe from predators and the elements.
Our farm is managed using a CSA model. This allows us to give you the best quality for the lowest price. Birds are reserved with a deposit while they are roaming and growing and doing what chickens do best. Once their ideal weight is achieved, we receive processing instructions from our customers and the birds are taken to a third-party Colorado certified processor to slaughter and process before being picked up by the customer.

At Rockin J Cattle, we try to
maintain a balance in our production model, simulating what
occurs in nature. From calving in sync with the local wildlife,
to utilizing grazing methods which mimic the predator – prey
relationship that occurred in nature thousands of years ago.
We herd our cattle, using temporary electric fences,
simulating the herding effects caused by a predator. By managing the
grazing patterns of the animals, the nutrient cycle is complete,as 99%
of what the cattle take from the land is returned, resulting in increased
levels of carbon in the soil. This cycling of nutrients allows us to
forego the application of fertilizers to our fields.
Whereas others strive to finish their beef within
18 months, we strive to finish our beef within 24-30 months of age. Just
as a fine wine develops its flavor with age, I believe that this also
contributes to the flavor of our beef. The harvesting of our beef is
done locally at a small family operated business.
You can get our beef by the pound, medium size packages,
quarters, sides or in volume if you want to start a buying club. It is
available at the Steamboat Springs Farmers Market (6th & Lincoln), Saturdays
8-2, the Bamboo and Sweet Pea Markets in

Rockin´JC Ranch, located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies in Gunnison, CO, specializes in raising Heritage livestock. We proudly offer naturally raised, grass fed Scottish Highland beef and quality grass fed beef.
Our herd lives a different life than many other herds. Our bull plows a path to our spring water and a return path through chest-deep snows. Local coyotes, mountain lions, and bears avoid our herd as they defend themselves well. Yet we walk and work among them as accepted members of the herd.
Our Highland beef is high in omega 3s and lower in fat and cholesterol, so it satisfies your craving for red meat while protecting your heart, and has now been scientifically proven to be the healthiest meat option, even over fish and poultry. All our cattle are grass fed and free-range on 214 spring-fed acres. We provide a wholesome environment for keeping our animals healthy and happy. We never use hormones or chemicals, ever!
We sell whole or half animals by the hanging weight, which is after the animal is butchered without head, horns, hides or organs. The kill fee and normal processing is included in our price. Some customers without the freezer space get together and divide up a whole animal.
Reserve your animal early since we sell out each year and we have to line up processing dates in advance. Your accepted deposit guarantees your reservation. Remember, it can take two years to grow an animal to be ready for you.
We can ship anywhere for the actual cost of shipping and a minimal handling charge.
We are proud members of Gunnison Stockgrower's Association, Colorado Independent Cattlemens Association, Colorado Proud, and the Quality Highland Beef program.

Their alfalfa/grass diet is supplemented with a minimal amount of locally sourced, non-GMO grain from our neighbors at Bow & Arrow Foods and Wild Edge Brewing.
100% Grass Fed Lamb. Our lambs are all Navajo Churro, a heritage breed that has grazed our Four Corners’ landscape since the 16th century. They are prized for their lean meat and light flavor. Our lambs are never given anti-biotics, growth hormones, animal by-products, or vaccinations. We rotate them regularly on diverse pastures for optimal nutrition and land management.

certified beef with principles of conservation
and sustainability in mind. We are grassfed certified by
the American Grassfed Association (AGA)
and organic certified by the USDA.
We currently have a herd
of approximately 100 certified beeves
that are either contracted to whole foods or sold through our own
direct marketing channels. We
endeavor to keep all of our animals out of the feedlots! Our
processor humanely slaughters the animals
just 8 miles down the road.
We deliver beef bundles in New Mexico
and Colorado. Additionally,
we recently opened a USDA
certified meat processing plant in which we produce beef jerky
and beef sticks. These products

Sangres Best offers premium grass fed beef with a satisfaction guarantee since 1995. The cattle are never fed antibiotics or ionophores nor do they ever receive artificial hormones of any kind. We handle these cattle with expertise, gentleness and respect. Choose from a multitude of beef packages ranging from 10 pounds to 400 pounds per order of USDA inspected beef, packaged with high tech barrier film insuring long-term freezer protection. We deliver within 250 miles of the ranch for a nominal fee.
Sangres Best Beef cattle graze Music Meadows Ranch, recently conserved via the San Isabel Land Protection Trust. This mountain ranch has been in the Parker family since 1968. The cattle water from streams and ponds and thrive on a buffet of rich grasses on naturally fertilized, irrigated and dry land pastures which build a wonderful flavor profile into the beef.
Discriminating restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area are now serving Sangres Best aka Brandon Natural Beef. Our customers consistently tell us this is the best tasting, most tender beef they have been able to find. We believe it is a combination of forage quality, breed type, humane handling and heavy mature finished condition on the cattle. Each of these factors is critical.
On another note, if you'd like a "no frills - memory rich" vacation, you and your family or friends may come to the ranch as guests, settling into the comfortable ranch house. Then step it up for a horse and cattle adventure, helping tend the cattle. You are also welcome to simply stop in for a visit so we can meet and show you the land and cattle..just give us a heads up so we know you are coming! There is always beef on hand to purchase on site as well.

Natural beef has been a tradition at Sylvan
Dale Guest Ranch since the
mid 60s when Maurice and Mayme Jessup bought their first herd
of Charolais. They soon developed a breeding program of registered
European bulls, most recently Saler and Gelbvieh, resulting in
a unique herd well-suited to the grasslands of our Rocky Mountain
free-range Heart J Cattle graze on mountain grasslands on our 3200-acre
ranch and over 4000 acres of National Forest. These lands are protected
by perpetual conservation easements. We manage the ecological balance
of vegetation through rotational grazing which stimulates re-growth
and provides forage that is higher in nutritional value. Sylvan
Dale Guest Ranch was the winner of the 2008 "Conservationist
of the Year" Award
by the Big Thompson Conservation District.
When you buy Heart-J
Beef you know where your beef comes from! Buying locally saves
shipping which in turn reduces the carbon footprint. Our beef is
processed locally in a clean, USDA-inspected facility. When you
purchase Heart J Natural Beef you contribute to the preservation
of open lands, wildlife and the western lifestyle! Your values

about 10 miles from the Colorado border. We are USDA Certified
Organic, and have employed organic practices continuously
We offer only healthy, safe, and delicious lean beef that
was raised using ecologically sustainable growing practices. At Thunderbasin

of wildlife, our calves are born in the warmth of Spring and are not
corralled or penned. They never see a feedlot and are 100% grass-fed
and grass-finished, providing you with all the health benefits documented
from grass fed beef. Our holistic ranch management practices create healthy
riparian zones and prairie, resulting in an abundance of native plants
and wildlife on the ranch.

Touchstone Angus has been producing all natural grass fed angus beef for over 12 years in Colorado and Wyoming. Our cattle are developed on open pasture and are never fed antibiotics or implanted with hormonal growth stimulants.
Angus cattle are well know for their ability to produce tender well-marbled beef. Tenderness combined with the grass-based diet found on the open ranges of Wyoming and Colorado give Touchstone Grass Fed Beef its distinctive flavor.
Touchstone Grass Fed beef is sold in whole, halves and quarters (half of a half). We make an effort to have beef available year around but most of the beef is ready in the fall. Most of our beef is processed at a USDA inspected plant in Elizabeth, Colorado where it can be picked up frozen or stored in a locker. We can ship beef as well if you live outside of Colorado or Wyoming and are unable to pick it up.

WiMo Farms is a small family farm nestled against the foothills of beautiful Berthoud, CO. We take great pride in the humane treatment of all of our animals and believe that all animals should be treated with respect and kindness from birth through butcher.
Our main business is our small raw milk share program from our lovely Jersey cows. They are nearly completely grass-fed, but since we do not have access to pasture year-round, they are fed high quality hays, both grass and alfalfa. We do provide them with a very small amount (about a pound per milking) of no-soy, no-corn grain whilst in the stanchion during milking. Unlike many dairies, our calves stay with their mamas until they are ready to wean. Our girls seem so incredibly happy and we’ve never had any stress or anxiety when the time comes for them to be apart.
We also take great pride in raising free-range, pastured Muscovy ducks, turkeys and a limited number of chickens, all on 100% certified organic feed. Our no-corn, no-soy chicken eggs are available seasonally directly from the farm too. We raise more ducks each year than any other bird and can usually provide duck year-round. Muscovy duck meat is actually the leanest of all poultry and has less fat and less calories per pound than turkey with the breasts being 99 percent lean! It is an incredibly versatile meat. We sell our ducks whole, so you can harvest duck fat to render for your home use too.
Our philosophy is that happy animals doing what nature intended them to do (foraging, socializing, digging, scratching, catching bugs) provide healthier meat, eggs and milk for us, our family and friends.
