Grass fed organic beef–100% grass fed and finished.
We feed our cattle nothing but green grass and grass/alfalfa hay from our certified organic pastures. Our cattle never see a feedlot. They remain on pasture even in the winter, when they are supplemented with hay. We are truly 100% grass-fed and grass-finished, providing you with the health benefits documented from grass fed beef.
We believe we live in the best grass fed organic beef producing area in the country. The cold summer nights and high soil mineral levels of our mountain pastures produces what the old-timers called “hard grass,” because of the rapid and healthy growth of the animals grazing it. Our mountain pasture grass produces a uniquely flavorful beef.
We know each animal’s history. Each cut, including each package of ground beef, is labeled and traceable to a single beef. We personally guarantee the purity and quality of our grass fed organic beef.
Our organic practices result in healthy cattle. We sell no beef treated with any chemical of any kind. This means never ever of any of the following: antibiotics, hormone growth promoters, ractopamine and beta-agonists, pour-on or internal insecticides.
Our entire ranch, included over 46,000 acres of rangeland, is certified organic. We are one of the largest single family organic producers in the country. We use no chemicals of any kind, relying on natural holistic processes to enhance fertility, and the sweat of our brow to control weeds.
Dry-aged beef is extremely rare, available only in the very best restaurants and from gourmet butcher shops. Why rare? Because dry-aging is very expensive. Why desired? Because dry-aging produces unparalleled flavor and tenderness. We go a step further by selecting the perfect number of days for dry aging for each beef, taking into account individual differences.
Alderspring Ranch Grass Fed Organic Beef is processed in a small, family-owned, USDA-inspected facility, where it is prepared by hand into perfectly presented cuts of beef.
We are small enough for intimate care of our land and livestock, but large enough to grow beef as our profession. We are a rarity in the corporate world- a true family farm.
We have been growing 100% grass fed beef for discerning patrons for over 20 years. We started growing grassfed beef long before grassfed became trendy or cool, because we believed it was right. Growing exceptional beef from this land we steward is our passion as well as our profession.
