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.

Here at Campbell Triangle C Beef we are More than Grass Finished ... Ours is OUTRAGEOUSLY NUTRITIOUS BEEF

I have been raising the beef with a focus on the superior health benefits for...

  • Humans who enjoy this nutrient-rich, toxin-free and naturally tasty BEEF
  • Animals by providing mineral-rich forages and removing toxins. Every day my cows enjoy Sea Salt Brine (92 minerals in nature's balance), detoxing clay, iodine, boron, selenium, organic ACV and diatomaceous earth
  • The Earth with the restoration of minerals and increasing the biology in the soil. A grazing tall rotation helps sequester carbon, which is at the root of soil, plant, animal, and human health.

Campbell Triangle C Beef Promise:

COUNTRY ORGANIC. We have not sought out any local or national certifications at Campbell Triangle C Beef. Our cows are not exposed to antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, GMOs or ethanol byproducts. A detoxifying clay is supplemented daily to my cows to ensure that this nutritionally maximized beef is as natural and clean as it can. OUR COWS DON'T DO DRUGS

TENDER BEEF. I have been tutored in, and practicing for twelve years, the art of seeing the external indicators on the animals which are associated with tender, flavorful meat on the inside.

GRAIN-FREE. Campbell Triangle C Beef is full of: brain-food (Omega 3s) and CLA, cancer-fighting FAT. I am excited for the opportunities that my fourteenth year of grass-finishing cattle brings and we look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you for supporting a local, non-GMO ranch. As always, stop by and see us anytime.

Cascade Creek Farm is a Family Farm raising Pastured Pork, Grass-Fed Beef and Pastured Poultry on land registered organic with ISDA.

"Our mission is to sustainably produce good tasting, healthy and humanely raised food. In doing so, we will positively benefit our family, our animals, our community and the earth through our enterprise."

Our practices go beyond organic standards. We are proud stewards of our patch of earth, striving daily to nurture our land as well as our animals. All our animals enjoy healthy, hormone-free lives – they thrive in their natural environment given proper space, clean water and good food. We support local farmers who grow pesticide/herbicide-free grains for our poultry and pigs.

Our pork and beef are available by the cut, whole, half, and split half (beef). We feature our own organic Sausage Seasonings and Cure which are all nitrite/nitrate/msg-free. Our pigs lead a good life; born without crates they grow up on rotated paddocks with room to root and roam. Our Angus Beef Cattle are strictly grass-finished, with a harvest window of June-October.

Pastured Broilers and Turkeys are available seasonally.

Retail cuts available on farm. Come buy and visit! Some of our products are also available at the Sandpoint Farmers Market, several grocery stores, and the One World Spokane restaurant. (Viisit our website or Eatwild's Idaho and Washington Beyond the Farm pages for details.)

Castle Rock Ranch raises grass-finished beef from heritage breed cattle along the Coeur D’Alene River. Our unconventional management style means we move our cows onto fresh pasture every day to simulate the way wild herds graze and results in the building of topsoil, increased water infiltration and biodiversity, which are hallmarks of a healthy ecosystem.

We never feed grain or use growth hormones or antibiotics on our cows and we never use synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides on our pastures. We grass finish with a goal of creating fat and inter-muscular marbling that makes meat tender and flavorful. Our heritage breed Aberdeen Angus and Dexters are smaller framed than most cattle and produce more manageable cuts of meat for customers that don’t want a 16 oz steak (you can always eat two 8 oz steaks).

Animals are purchased by the quarter, half or whole where customers pay by the pound, with a typical quarter beef yielding a manageable 75 pounds of packaged beef. We only harvest July through November so that all animals have had at least 90 days on green, growing grass to maximize nutrition and quality. All of our beef is dry-aged for 10 days and then custom cut and frozen by local butchers. 

Pickup is at the butcher in Coeur D’Alene or our ranch and delivery is possible to the Seattle area but we do not mail beef.

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.

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.

Red Star Ranch is located along the Snake River canyon in south-central Idaho. As 4th generation farmers, we are continually seeking innovative ways to improve and sustain the proud traditions of agriculture in our family. This search has led us to combine new technology with historical practices. On the farm you can find GPS technology and the latest strip-till implement running in a field next to heritage livestock grazing on non-GMO cover crop pastures.

Our livestock operation raises grass-fed beef as well as pastured pork and poultry. We specifically select breeds that fit in our low input system and thrive on our forage and grass pastures year-round. We do not use antibiotics or growth hormones and seek non-GMO locally grown forage if pasture levels run low. We use low-stress management techniques to wean, handle and care for our animals. 

We at Red Star Ranch are blessed to sit down at our family tables knowing how and where our food was produced. We know we are giving our children the healthiest options available. Check out our products to bring these same options to your family table.

Beef and pork are available by the cut or in larger bundles. Poultry is available seasonally with pre-order recommended.

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.

SkyLines Farm near Moscow ID has been growing exquisite spinning wool and premium grassfed lambs using sustainable and organic methods since 1992. In 2007 we began producing premium grassfed BEEF. Then we added pastured heritage-breed PIGS. Using time-tested management methods that respect the animals as well as the land, SkyLines Farm animals grow up happy and healthy without antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, or chemical wormers. The beef receive no grain at all; the pigs get a small ration of locally grown, non-GMO grains to supplement their pasture. 

Our carefully managed rotational grazing program ensures that all 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 can produce the best tasting, most nutritious meats (see Jo Robinson's excellent books). We harvest SkyLines beef and pigs in October, just as they reach their peak of flavor and tenderness and before the pastures begin to retire for the winter.

Over the past 25+ years, we have worked hard to perfect our sustainable and organic management methods. And it’s working! 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, and much more. Educated, thoughtful, caring animal husbandry practices help us keep all of the animals happy, healthy, vigorous...and drug free.

Visit the farm website for the whole SkyLines story, including hundreds of beautiful photos of our happy, healthy animals living the good life at SkyLines Farm of Idaho. 

Purchase quarter, half, or whole beef; half or whole pig. Reserve throughout the year, with free delivery in fall to regional meeting locations. (Sorry, no shipping) We sell out every year well in advance of harvest, so place your reservation early.
