How do we get our great beef to your plate? Our beef starts out as cute little calves either on our ranch or affiliate ranches that follow our protocol for health and breeding. They stay on their moms till they are 6-7 months old. They are then moved to pastures on their own and supplemented with hay as needed throughout the winter. When the grass comes again in the spring they are moved frequently to fresh pasture throughout the growing season. Depending on their size and rate of growth some will be ready to be harvested that fall. Others will be run to the middle of the following year.
We determine when the animal is ready to be harvested by the signs we see externally of a finished animal. Each animal is harvested separately in a gentle, careful way. We go to great lengths to ensure the animals are not scared or stressed at this time. The beef is then dry-aged in a USDA inspected facility. After sufficient time the meat is cut into the delicious steaks and roasts you love. Each cut is carefully carved and then packaged in vacuum sealed heavy plastic. All the beef is then frozen and held in freezers until delivery time.
Your beef will either be delivered to you at a preset location in a refrigerated truck or shipped to you, depending on your location and preference.
