24 West Ranch — See below


Alderspring Ranch offers a complete line of beef products including all typical cuts, ground beef (90-95% lean), a variety of sausages made without preservatives, and hickory smoked steak strips. Small quantities are available seasonally at the Boise 8th Street Farmer's Market and year-round at the Boise Consumer Co-op. Packs of 20-40 lbs. as well as quarters, halves and wholes are available for home delivery in parts of Idaho and Western Montana.

Our Angus cattle are raised from start to finish on our mountain ranch in remote east-central Idaho, eating nothing but intensively-managed pastures and locally-harvested stored forages in the coldest months. We use no antibiotics, additives, genetically modified feeds, animal byproducts, steroids, hormone implants or pour-on insecticides. Our remote valley has no row crop industry, eliminating contamination from agricultural or industrial chemicals. We use quiet, stress-free management because it is the right thing to do, and for improved animal health and meat quality. We harvest animals at approximately 18 months and dry-age 20 days for optimal leanness and tenderness at a USDA inspected family-owned processor. We have been finishing and selling direct for over ten years, and have perfected a production and processing model that gives a consistently tender delicious beef.

Campbell Triangle C Ranch is a family-owned smart pasture operation producing 100% pasture-raised and grass-finished beef without using antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, GMOs or ethanol by-products for those who recognize the exceptional value of all-grass-fed beef.

Looking for tender beef? We have been tutored in the art of seeing the external indicators on the animals that are associated with tender, flavorful meat in the inside. We have used this knowledge for years in our breeding and selection process to insure tender beef on your plate. Our breeding program is centered around Red Devons. (Click here to view a brand new video about Red Devons.)

Nutrient balanced soils produce grasses that organize the minerals into a nutrient-dense feed for our animals. During the growing season, we move our animals once or twice a day. This "grazing tall" process sequesters carbon and uses free energy from the sun—not fossil fuels! All of this ensures a healthier, more flavorful, environmentally sustainable product for you.

Most of our split-half, half, and whole beef are processed by an Abattoir located about 50 miles from our ranch. For this, we utilize on-the-farm harvest to minimize stress, and dry-age for 12-14 days. We also use a USDA packaging facility, allowing us to sell 20 or 40-pound beef bundles and ground beef by the pound. All of the USDA products are available year round.

For ordering information, pricing, a copy of our current newsletter, or if you just want to visit, contact us by phone or e-mail, or better yet, stop by the ranch!

Here at Campbell Triangle C Ranch, we raise beef with a focus on the superior health benefits—for the Earth, for the animals and for humans—that come from grass that is grown and properly harvested from nutrient-rich soils. Thank you for supporting a local ranch!

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.

Farmers Markets: We are vendors at the Thanksgiving Point Farmers Market on Friday from 3-7pm starting in August and ending in October. We are also vendors at the Happy Valley Farmers Market on Fridays from 5-9pm starting in August and ending in October.

We ship our meat anywhere in the continental US via UPS. Buyer pays shipping costs.

Double Aught Angus Ranch, located near the South Fork of the Clearwater River in northern Idaho, is a small family farm dedicated to raising quality beef by providing our cattle a quality life.

Environmentally sound practices:
Our 100% Angus cattle have Lowline Angus breeding, a smaller-framed Angus known for superior meat quality and superior grass-efficiency. They graze pastures that are managed for clean, healthy grasses, forbs, shrubs and trees. The variety of forage species, clean water, and free-choice minerals keep our cattle healthy and satisfied. In addition to naturally pastured beef cattle, our ranch is managed for a broad range of wildlife and plant species to ensure an ecologically diverse and sustainable environment.

Better beef in smaller packages--Small-framed cattle are easy on our customers’ pocketbooks and easy on the environment:
Eat the whole steak! Smaller steers yield smaller cuts to better suit most customers’ needs. Our steers will yield about 260 pounds of packaged meat and are available as whole, half or mixed quarters (cuts from front and hind).

All natural:
Always grass-fed, never grained. No added hormones nor antibiotics.

Always humane:
Our cattle are naturally docile and always handled gently, with respect. Calves are weaned later without the distress of early weaning or isolation from their mothers Fresh pasture is provided when possible and quality locally-grown grass hay is continuously available when winter weather does not permit grazing. Steers are never subjected to the stress of being shipped for slaughter. They are humanely ranch-killed and packaged by a local family-run processor.

Double Aught Angus Ranch, Susan Hagle, 379 Lee Road, Harpster ID 83552. (208) 926-4545.

Homestead Natural Foods LLC is a co-operative of four ranching families that have joined together to bring real food to health-conscious consumers. We’ve gone back to raising cattle, pigs and poultry the way our grandparents did: born and bred on natural pasture, with no hormones or antibiotics.

Homestead Natural beef is raised antibiotic free, growth stimulant/hormone free, and grain/corn free and are all raised from birth to finish on a grass diet.

Homestead Natural pork is raised 100% free range and fed a minimal amount of barley, no corn, soy beans or GMO feeds.

Homestead Natural poultry products are raised free range on grass pasture and fed a minimal amount of grain.

Cattle, pigs and poultry raised in “concentrated animal feeding operations” (CAFOs) may cost less at the checkout stand, but you pay a high price in taste and nutrition. You see, beef, pork and chicken raised on natural pasture don’t just taste better… they’re better for you. And when it comes to flavor, just ask the folks who have eaten our beef, pork or chicken at Idaho restaurants like the Red Feather Lounge, Bitter creek Alehouse, Café d’Paris, Jenny's Lunch Line, Lucky 13, St. Luke’s Hospital in Boise, Galena Lodge, Segos and CKs in Sun Valley, Brick 29 in Nampa and Bon Appetit in Caldwell.

Beef, pork and chicken raised with sustainable agricultural practices may cost more, but like our grandparents would have told you, you get what you pay for. And when it comes to your health, isn’t that worth a little extra?

NOTE: Homestead Natural Foods has a local delivery option if you live within 100 miles of the Boise, Idaho metro area, OR in Twin Falls, Idaho. We deliver every Tuesday.

Lava Lake Lamb is 100% natural Idaho grass-fed lamb – never placed in a feed lot, never given any hormones, never given antibiotics.

Our lambs graze with their mothers and continue to drink mother’s milk all their lives, getting important antibodies for good health and vitality, and making the best-tasting meat. Lava Lake’s lambs also spend most of their lives grazing on wild, fragrant range grasses, herbs and other plants, as Nature intended.

Raised with care by our experienced shepherds, our lambs are truly “free-range.” Traveling from the deserts of the Snake River Plain to the high mountains near Sun Valley, our animals log hundreds of miles during their lifetimes – they are never confined in feedlots. The result is meat that is lean yet tender and flavorful – we think you’ll find it the best you’ve tasted.

Our headquarters is Lava Lake Ranch, located just southeast of Sun Valley in Idaho’s Pioneer Mountains. As a family of ranchers and environmentalists, we are committed to restoring and preserving this land because of its history, its beauty and its biological diversity. We are so committed to this principle that all net profits from our grass-fed lamb sales help fund our land conservation work.

Lava Lake Lamb is available year-round and can be purchased by individual cuts, halves or wholes and shipped anywhere in the U.S. It is USDA-inspected, dry-aged for ten days, then frozen and cryovaced to retain its freshness and flavor.

To place an order, or for more information, visit our website or contact us at (208) 788-9778.

Rancho Rebaños is home to a fold of grass-fed Scottish Highland cattle and St. Croix sheep... (not to mention a flock of runner ducks that supply the eggs for our family). We offer, for your family's delight: lamb, beef, and (very specially) young bull beef, to be ordered anytime up until July, ready to be served in August.

The ranch is nestled in the foot-hills of the Clearwater mountains in green, peaceful pastures beneath Maggie Butte... and thousands of feet above the Clearwater River valley. When the snow begins to fly late in the autumn, the whole fold moves down into the valley to graze there in the milder clime throughout the cold season.

The lambs and the bull beef are born right here on the ranch. The standard beef (the ones that will be steers) are born and spend their first 6 months high up in the National Forest, at Elk City.

Our tasty, tasty beasts feed only on the natural forages (including some hay in the winter) that grow right here locally. No hormones added, no antibiotics...just plain goodness, the way the man upstairs made them.

Come on and find us, and we'll be happy to set you up with some good eating
Rancho Rebaños - Glenwood, Idaho ... What are you eating?

Rocky A Ranch is nestled under Oxford Peak in Southeast Idaho, about 20 miles west of Preston. Our grass fed beef eat only grass and hay that we have produced here on the Ranch, mostly natural timothy hay.

We are certified organic by the State of Idaho, but we go well beyond what the state requires for certification. We raise our animals in a natural stress free environment not only because it makes the meat healthier and better tasting, but also out of respect for the animals that we raise. Some of the native tribes of this continent may have had it right when they reverenced the spirit of the animal that had given its life for the survival and health of the one consuming it.

You can learn more about us and get specific information on how we can help you feed your family in a healthier fashion at our web site.

Rolan Bison Ranch located near Weippe Idaho raises grassfed bison. We started raising bison because of the health benefits for our family. Now we would like to help provide a source of healthy meat to others who are also committed to eating healthy. Our animals are pastured on a mix of natural grasses that are free of pesticides and herbicides. They are supplemented with natural vitamins and minerals with absolutely no animal by-products, growth hormone, or antibiotics. They receive no grain, but the meat is very lean, flavorful, and tender. We use a mobile butcher because it is more humane and eliminates unnecessary stress to the animals. Animals that are less stressed yield a more tender, higher quality product.

The bison meat is available in individual packages, split halves, or halves. Because our animals are grassfed, we butcher in the late summer or early fall. Orders are taken throughout the year for halves or quarters to be delivered at the time of butchering. We also sell live animals for breeding, robes, skulls, etc. You are invited to contact us for additional information or to schedule a tour of our ranch.

They all thrive on a pure simple diet of mom's milk and 100% grass...just the way ruminant animals are designed to live.

Our carefully managed rotational grazing program ensures the animals are dining on "salad bar fresh" green grass every day, all summer long. Research has shown that grazing animals harvested from actively growing green grass produce the best tasting, most nutritious meats. We harvest SkyLines beef in October, just as the meat reaches its peak of flavor and tenderness and before the pastures begin to retire for the winter.

We have perfected our organic and sustainable management methods over 20+ years. Our practices include frequent doses of nature's miracle herb garlic; providing excellent nutrition year-round, including trace mineral supplements like kelp; rotating and resting barnyards and pastures to break parasite cycles and protect plant and soil health; running a closed herd for biosecurity; and much more. Educated, thoughtful, caring animal husbandry practices help us keep all of the animals happy, healthy, vigorous...and drug free.

24 West Ranch offers premium, 100% all-natural, grass-fed beef and certified-organic produce, raised right here in the Treasure Valley, just west of Boise, Idaho. Owned and operated by the Watterson family, the ranch has been in operation since 1924.

We graze our cattle on over 25,000 acres of open air in the Owyhee Mountains and finish them on our grass pastures in Star, Idaho. Our animals never see a feed lot, grain, antibiotics or growth hormones and our land is farmed using organic practices. We feed our cattle GMO-free, certified organic hay/alfalfa that is never sprayed with chemicals or pesticides. Our policy is no antibiotics ever. No growth hormones ever. No chemicals ever.

By using sustainable practices and treating our cattle humanely, we’re able to provide the best in local grass-fed beef. You can feel good about eating our beef, knowing where they come from and how they were raised.

We sell our beef by the whole, half, quarter or a 40-lb variety box and it is available year round. We deliver in the Treasure Valley, Wood River Valley and Magic Valley. Our beef is also available at Porterhouse Meat Market in Eagle, Jenny’s Lunch Line in Boise, Shore Lodge and Whitetail in McCall and through Idaho’s Bounty and Brown Box Organics.

If you’re looking for a healthy, local, sustainable alternative to today’s industrial food choices, call today to order beef for you and your family.

Wilsey Ranch has been family owned and operated for 30 years Our cattle run on intensively managed range in the Owyhee mountains their entire lives, feeding on a unique mix of grass and forbs. We supplement them with ranch-raised hay in the winter months, and they are finished on irrigated meadows in the summer. They are given no hormones, antibiotics, animal byproducts, or genetically modified feeds; they are as natural as a cow can get. We handle our cattle humanely with the least amount of stress possible.

Our beef has an excellent flavor, rich full texture and is aged 25 days for optimum tenderness. We use a USDA inspected, family-owned processor who will cut and wrap to your specifications.

Currently we offer beef in whole, half, or split half for summer and fall harvest.
