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!

Cool mountain air, healthy soils, clean water, and healthy grass contribute to our unique tender “sweet” flavor.

We do not feed antibiotics or growth hormones to any of our livestock. Navajo-Churro Sheep are resistant to worms and retain natural lambing instincts, requiring less medical care than commercial breeds. We feed hay as needed in the winter. We provide humane care including vaccinations and de-worming as necessary. Our birds and sheep are happy!

B Bar S Ranch is a beef cattle ranching operation with two family-owned Colorado locations in the scenic Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Our high mountain pasture in Nederland, CO has been family owned since 1968 and our high plains ranch south of Elizabeth, CO has been family-owned and operated since 1990.

The beef that we provide will have been fed over the summer on grass in the high mountain pasture. Our cattle are not given any growth hormones or antibiotics. They live healthy lives with exercise, plenty of grass, fresh mountain spring water and open space. We take precautions to never overgraze our land and use a rotational grazing system to keep the feed fresh and loaded with nutrition.

We sell beef to our customers in early September of every year. There is a minimum order of 1/4 of a beef. The best way to order is to split a half with someone you know. We will help you with communicating the specifics to the packer so the meat gets cut and packed to the specifications best for your family needs. Currently we have our beef processed at Arapahoe Packing in Lafayette, CO.

Craig Angus Ranch has been family owned and operated in Fort Collins, Colorado since 1978. We raise quality grass fed beef that has no antibiotic or hormones.

We raise our cattle in the summer months on pasture in Tie Siding, Wyoming and bring them down to Fort Collins during winter months and feed them home grown hay. We sell the cattle live, but charge by hanging weight of the carcass. The meat gets processed in Kersey, Colorado at Steving Meats.

We try to have meat ready year round but at times it takes 60 to 90 days, so put your order in early. We are not certified, but all of our products are naturally raised.

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.

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!

Our grass-finished cattle are high percentage angus that finish well on grass alone by the end of their 2nd year. They are raised without the use of antibiotics, growth hormones, grain or grain-based feeds, chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

We sell Wholes, Halves and Quarters (split-halves) that are processed and dry-aged at a small USDA inspected facility nearby.

We offer self-pickup or delivery to central locations North along I-25 up to Denver.

Raising a family affected by multiple food allergies has been a real eye-opener as to the state of our current food supply. We understand first-hand how important it is to truly know and trust your family's food source. 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. We will gladly walk you through it and even go so far as to deal with the processing aspect for you, so that we are essentially a one stop shop. Customer satisfaction is highly important to us and there is no greater compliment than a repeat customer in our minds.

Flying B Bar Ranch is a family-run ranch east of Denver producing Wagyu and Wagyu/Angus grassfed/grass finished beef, no hormones, steroids, or antibiotics. We use regenerative, low stress, ethical, humane ranching practices and are an American Grassfed Association Certified Grassfed beef producer.

We practice ranching that is better for the cattle, better for you, and better for the planet, and provide the highest levels of ethical and humane animal treatment. We also focus on soil health and how to reverse climate change through regenerative ranching.

Our cattle graze on the lush grass of the Kiowa Creek. In the winter we feed them hay mixed by us to create the perfect “salad” for growing great tasting, healthy beef. Check out the health benefits of our grassfed beef.

Our cows are Angus and Wagyu/Angus bred to full-blood Wagyu bulls. Wagyu is the breed that produces the famous Kobe Beef. We do most of the farming ourselves and have been at this since 2007. We know what it takes to make grass fed/finished beef the best you’ve ever tasted.

We also offer pork by individual cuts or half or whole pig custom cut to your instructions. Our Natural Heritage pork is raised by a family farm in Yuma, Colorado that holds to our same high standards for how we treat our animals and how we improve the planet throughout the process. Our pigs are a crossbreeding of Mangalitsa (the Wagyu of the pork industry, known for its tenderness and marbling), Berkshire, and Duroc heritage pigs—a winning combination.

We work with a nearby animal-welfare-certified slaughter facility to process cattle every week year-round. Order through our website or call to arrange a time to come to the ranch and shop our walk-in freezer.

We can ship individual cuts of beef and pork overnight to your door, or you can place custom orders for an eighth, quarter, half, or whole beef, or a half or whole pig. FREE shipping for orders over $150. Our beef is shipped frozen, with dry ice, vac sealed, in insulated boxes.

And don’t worry, we work with “first timers” to take the mystery out of ordering direct from the ranch. We’ll hold your hand and teach you along the way.

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 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.

Mystic Hills Farmstead is a family farm located just outside of Steamboat Springs, CO. We raise 100% grass-fed and finished Lamb and 100% grass-fed and finished Beef. The operation, run by husband-and-wife team Jack and Mikinzie Taylor, aims to bring life back to the land through thoughtful action and by implementing sustainable and regenerative agricultural practices.

The farmstead, nestled in a beautiful valley between Steamboat Springs and Clark, CO, encompasses diverse ecosystems of meadows, irrigated pasture, diverse sagebrush, and native forest. Two-thirds of the property are also under a conservation easement, protecting and preserving the landscape for years to come. We believe in the beauty and simplicity of knowing where our food comes from. In living off the land, we hope to live our truest, most authentic lives while encouraging those around us to do the same.

Our mission is simple. We’re raising meat that’s better for you and the planet because we know that the choices we make today impact generations to come.

At Mystic Hills Farmstead, we believe in the integrity of the food we raise. That’s exactly why we started growing high-quality food for ourselves and now have the privilege of serving you and your family. We believe in a bright future of clean, nutrient-dense foods and a local food system for getting that food from our farm to your table. Small farms like ours are changing how our communities connect to food, so please join us on our farming journey!

Our animals continually eat from "nature's salad bar," receiving a diet rich in legumes and natural grasses that 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.

Our calves are born and raised at home, processed 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.

We offer whole carcasses, halves, and split halves. We also offer a variety pack as well as ground beef. Inquiries are welcome. Brochures are available on request.

Prairie Opal Ranch started small with raising cattle for grass-fed and finished beef. We have grown, and we are now providing a variety of farm fresh meats for us and our customers. We currently raise cattle, breeding/meat pigs and breeding/meat goats, chicken, turkey, and eggs (duck and chicken). Bulk and retail packages available. All products are non-soy and non-GMO, and ruminants are grass fed, and grass finished. USDA inspected.

COMING SOON – Pastured lamb!

A little about us: 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. We have made all farming and ranching decisions based on regenerative agriculture and sustainability.

Currently, we manage 100+ head of cattle that cross-graze approximately 2000+ 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 build microbial activity, carbon retention and water infiltration in our soil. We practice sustainability by cross fencing our pastures and rotational grazing. 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. Have a question? Call or email us.

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!

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.
