How our animals are raised and handled
Our cattle are raised entirely on grass pastures and hay in the winter when the grass is not growing. We use sustainable grazing practices that allow native and endangered plants to flourish on the Colvin Ranch prairie.
Since grass is the natural food for cattle, you can be confident that they are always healthy. Our facilities are designed to ensure the safety of both the people and animals, and the cattle are always handled in a humane manner. The management of our cattle ensures that the natural resources on the ranch are being used in a sustainable manner for future generations. Place an order with Colvin Ranch grass fed and grass finished beef.
Tastes good and good for you!
Grass fed and grass finished beef tastes good, and because it’s all natural, it’s good for you, too. Studies have shown that grass fed and grass finished beef is higher in vitamin E, vitamin C, beta-carotene and the “good” fats that help reduce cancer risk, such as omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Grass fed and grass finished beef has fewer total fats and calories than grain fed beef.

We have pastured pork available for purchase! Our pigs are raised in a stress-free environment here on our ranch. We start them in the protection of our open air barn, and when they get acclimated, they are moved outside onto grass pastures, where they are allowed to roam, root and forage. Our pigs are only raised on high quality feed and our own grass. Our pork is all-natural, with no hormones or antibiotics
