BEEF, We raise Grass-Fed Beef & some Pastured Beef that gets limited grains. We also offer by-products like tallow.|
We are a small family ranch in the rolling hills of southern Iowa. We raise Cattle, Kids & Quarter Horses. We offer Healthy, HAPPY Beef to customers by the cut and the eighth, quarter and half.
We started our herd of Maine-Anjou cattle from Beau's parents's herd. We have now expanded to 80 head of mother cows. All of our cattle are worked slowly from horseback. We are very careful & quiet when handling all of our cattle. Raising Healthy HAPPY Beef Cattle is our passion!
Our children also raise some chickens to sell & raise eggs.
All of our beef we sell was born here on our ranch. We don't ever use Hormones or growth supplements. We never feed any antibiotics.
If you want to know that your beef was raised in a VERY Happy & Healthy way take a look at us. All of our calves are born & raised on our pastures. When they are weaned the calves will be sorted into different pastures & fed in 3 very different ways.
Our most popular Beef is Pastured Beef. A wonderful blend of flavor & tons of health benefits! These calves are always on fresh green pastures. Each day when they are moved to new pastures we offer them small amounts of grains to enhance the natural flavor of their beef. This beef recieves less than 2% of their body weight each day in grains & qualifies for the American GrassFed Association's Level 2 Standards.
We offer 100% Grass-Fed Beef. These calves are weaned in the spring & harvested in the fall. Our Grass-Fed Beef is extremely lean and tender! We harvest our Grass-Fed beef at 14-18 months. This results in a very tender and consistent product.
In the winter months we do offer some Corn-Finished beef. Our Corn-Finished Beef is raised with our pastured beef & then put into separate paddocks in the winter months with free access to grains & hay. This extremely tender and rich beef is in high demand. Especially since it is an all natural product!

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
We are an All-Natural Ranch! We don't use herbicides, or pesticides. We never use any growth hormones or routine antibiotics. We are also a certified humane grower & follow all American Grass-Fed Standards with our Grass-Fed AND Pastured Beef.
Our Corn Finished Beef is only offered in the winter months when it is in the best interests of the animal to be confined in a smaller space & offered higher energy grains (excess energy helps keep them warm).
We welcome ALL questions about our animal husbandry & offer visits & tours to the ranch to all of our customers.
