Providing you with the highest quality of meats possible, from our family to yours!




Life On The Farm: We have been busy cutting and baling hay. 

Before baling hay, the moisture content has to be just right. If it is too dry, the leaves become brittle and fall off. Did you know that a significant portion of hay's nutritional value is in the leafy portions, not the stems? If you bale hay that is too wet, not only will it lower the nutritional value, but excessive moisture can cause a fire in hay bales and stacks.

We want to ensure this heritage and legacy can be passed down to our children so it is important that we teach them about all aspects of the operation. We are teaching the 6th generation! The cows may be in the mountains but our summer work on the farm has just begun!


We are continuing to get cows to our high mountain pastures. It is so much more than just hauling them there. We have to sort pairs (mama cow and calf) specific for each pasture. Before loading them in the cattle pot we have to sort each cow from her calf. This is for the safety of the calf so they aren't stepped on or injured during transport. We schedule trucks to help us haul, the brand inspector if we are going out of state to our New Mexico pastures, crossing permits, and the list goes on. We've been asked how cattle are transported. Below is a look inside the cattle pot. There are two levels.
