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.

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.

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.

At Old Grove Pastured Pork our goal is to offer pork products with the guarantee that your meat was raised in a manner that gives each pig full expression of their “pigness,” as Joel Salatin so eloquently describes. This involves rooting in the dirt, socializing, living in a forest and enjoying the sunlight.
The pigs are raised on rotating pasture consisting of a mix of open peach orchard, rows growing alfalfa, and dense shady forest bottomland. The peach orchard does not use pesticides or herbicides. Pasture density is limited to one pig per half acre and is typically much lower.
Old Grove Pasture Raised Pork is raised on a soy-free, corn-free mix of barley, alfalfa, and sunflower seeds supplemented by natural forage from the orchard such as grass and roots.

Company, we raise our animals at the foot of the
Sangre De Cristo mountains, where our cattle harvest the
sun. Our goal is to bring you quality beef with
great taste and the health benefits that come from eating
an all-natural product.

are converted into a high protein, healthy meal. We use management
intensive grazing techniques in an effort to mimic the way
nature used to do it, changing pastures frequently, allowing
our grass to rest and regrow.

locally, and then aged to ensure taste and tenderness. We treat our animals
humanely, and do not use chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides
on our pastures. We do not treat our grassfat calves with antibiotics,
synthetic growth hormones, nor feed animal by-products.

Prairie Opal Ranch was started with 11 Angus, 18 Longhorns, and 2 bulls. We currently raise AGA-certified grass-fed beef, fresh pastured chicken and turkey, and free-range farm eggs. We have chicken and duck eggs currently available. All products are non-soy and non-GMO.
AVAILABLE IN SPRING 2022 – Pastured Pork!
We knew from the start that we wanted to be different than most, so we started brainstorming and setting our mindsets to becoming a ranch that would stand out and be distinct. The decisions we made then, and are still making today, have had a huge impact on our life, our animals, and our customers.
Currently, we manage 100+ head of cattle that cross-graze approximately 1,900 acres of grassland pastures. We practice regenerative farming and ranching for grass-eating animals. We want to mimic how animals lived in the wild before industrialized ranching took hold. We aim to boost microbial activity, carbon retention and water infiltration in soil. We practice sustainability by implementing managed grazing programs. We rotational graze our beef, chickens, and turkey. We are building wildlife friendly habitats, and bringing in beneficial insects, plants, and different animal species.
We love knowing where our food has come from and how our animals are treated and raised. We take pride in knowing our animals are well cared for and happy. Loved animals equal happy customers.
The future is bright here at Prairie Opal Ranch and we hope you will join us on our journey. We look forward to sharing our fresh products with you.

Rivendell Farms is a regenerative agricultural operation located on Plus Lazy K Ranch in the mountains near Glenwood Springs, Colorado. We renourish the earth by restoring and nurturing ecological cycles to promote diverse, resilient biological communities through holistic resource management using regenerative agriculture techniques.
Our core mission is to cultivate a virtuous cycle to renourish the land that nourishes us. This cycle is fueled by the sun and moved by water to nourish soil, plants, animals, and people. Fundamental to the concept of this cycle is the commonality of its constituents. One main example is the relationship between the microbiota in the soil, the rumen, and the human body.
Plus Lazy K Beef is better for you and better for the earth. This meat demonstrates how farming techniques can renourish the earth and our bodies. Our valley has highly mineralized volcanic soils, pristine spring water, and an abundance of sunshine; they combine to produce nutrient-dense beef that tastes amazing. The cattle are grass-finished through holistically planned grazing on diverse pastures.
Plus Lazy K Beef – biologically concentrated vegetable nutrition!

Sacred Song Farm is a family-owned and operated, beyond-organic ranch situated in the beautiful Mancos Valley. We use permaculture and holistic management to produce the highest quality pastured meats while regenerating the land by responsibly grazing. We feature heritage breed animals selected specifically to succeed in our unique climate. We provide a full range of the highest quality products including 100% grass-fed Beef, non-GMO pastured Pork, and 100% grass-fed Lamb.
Our system for achieving top-quality products is simple: we mimic nature. We see ourselves primarily as a soil-building enterprise. Healthy soils = healthy animals = healthy people. We raise our animals in their most natural, stress-free state, limiting our inputs to sun, water, grass, and animal movement.
100% Grass-Fed Beef. Our cattle are never given anti-biotics, hormones, vaccinations, animal by-products, or grain. They are moved daily to new growth to optimize nutrition, weight gain, and marbling.
Non-GMO Forest-Fed Pork. Our pork comes from Mangalitsa and Kune Kune hogs, breeds that grow well on forage. They are never given anti-biotics, growth hormones, animal by-products, or vaccinations. Their forage diet (grass, acorns, juniper berries, shrubs, and local fruit) is supplemented with a minimal amount of non-GMO corn from our neighbors at Bow & Arrow Foods, and sunflower mash pellets from non-GMO, Colorado-grown sunflowers.
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.
Pastured Protein CSA. We deliver a variety of our meats monthly to the Durango, Dolores, Mancos and Cortez areas to members through our CSA. See our website for more details.
Our meat is available all year long from our farm freezers or delivered.

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.

Sisu Farms raises 100% grass-fed and grass-finished Highland beef, natural pork, and pasture-raised chicken and eggs.
We are passionate about raising happy, healthy animals in a natural way that benefits the environment and provides healthy quality meat and eggs. Our farm uses natural methods with no hormones, no antibiotics, no fertilizers, or chemicals.
Our Highland cattle live on a natural diet of only the fresh grass in the majestic Rocky Mountain Valley. Highland beef is the oldest breed of cattle with many health benefits. Our cattle are on pasture year-round and are a closed herd with no exposure to disease. Calves stay with their mothers for at least 4 months. In winter, Highland cattle use their horns to forage through snow, and we supplement with grass hay.
Our pigs are fed an eclectic diet and have anytime-access to natural forage and plenty of sunshine. The access to sunshine makes the meat richer in micronutrients, particularly fat-soluble vitamins E and D and selenium.
Our pasture-raised chickens eat grass, grains, bugs and scratch around in the dirt, the way nature intended. Pastured poultry are more nutrient-dense specifically in omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins A and E.
Get to know your farmer, contact us for a farm tour! Our farm promotes the many health benefits of eating local and providing humanely and ethically raised animals.
Please visit our website for ordering details. Delivery can be made to Winter Park, Fraser and the Denver area.

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.
