How does it taste?
Mark Schatzker, who traveled for a year looking for the best steak in the world, found it at Alderspring Ranch. “I would like to tell you how that steak tasted, but the truth is, we lack an adequate meat vocabulary. The flavor that burst over my tongue with each chew was comparable to a symphony, but any attempt to describe the individual notes would sound pretentious and be meaningless. What I can tell you about that steak is how it made me feel,” Schatzker wrote in his book STEAK: One Man’s Search for the World’s Tastiest Piece of Beef.
Always on Pasture Beef, 100% Grassfed and Grass-finished, Certified Organic, Raised on Biologically Diverse Mountain Pastures
We’ve been raising 100% grass fed organic beef for nearly a quarter century. We were one of the first grassfed beef producers in the country, and are still one of the few online sources for single-source, family-raised, grassfed beef that is certified organic. Raising the best beef is our passion and profession.
Our experience raising grassfed shows up in our exceptional beef. But more than what we do, it is the magnificent wild country that our beef is raised in that contributes to the clean flavor of our beef. We like to think we’ve gone into a place beyond grassfed, beyond organic, to a country we call “wild.”
We’ve shipped over 20,000 boxes of our beef to partners all over the country. Each week, 80-90 percent of our orders go to long-term customers
What Organic Means for You
Our never ever absolutely none guarantee: no antibiotics, hormones, growth promotants, fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, pour-on parasiticides, GMOs, glyphosate, irradiation, or any other human-made chemicals. (Discerning meat label readers know that the “grass fed” term addresses none of these.)
What Grassfed Means for You
The nutritional values of true grassfed and finished beef, including omega 3 fatty acids, additional vitamins, and more CLA. Even better, the large size and wild native plant diversity of our pastures, and the high mineralization of our biologically active soil, results in an exceptional beef that is beyond grassfed beef raised on farmed pastures.
It’s raised by us, with full transparency, honesty, and integrity. Our family wants to be your rancher, connecting you with the wild landscapes we love and steward, the largest certified organic area in the country. We are passionate about what we do. Ask us anything.

What Other People Say About Alderspring
Food writer Ian Brown says of Alderspring: “But the grass fed rib-eye is a revelation. I realize that is the sort of statement that makes people think food writers are wankers. But, baby, it is true. The Idaho steak has the middle, the robustness of the wagyu, but without the fattiness; it also tastes, unmistakably, like beef. It shouts, but it also lasts. It is like being inside a cave of beef taste. The complexity of the grass fed steak becomes greater, not less, with each chew: I think I detect a lemon-grass flavour in the middle of what is otherwise a meaty, even nutty taste. It is – forgive me again – steaky.” (Globe and Mail, 2013)
2006: Salon magazine says about Alderspring: “Never have I witnessed a piece of meat so move grown men (and women). Every taster but one, instantly proclaimed the grass-fed steak the winner.”
2012: Wall Street Journal’s testing of grass fed beef rates Alderspring with the best ribeye.
2013: ForbesLife places Alderspring’s ribeye on its spring A-list as one of Forbes’ 10 exceptional things to splurge on.
2016 (March): Dr. Oz tries an Alderspring steak: “That’s incredible!”
The finest flavored meat I’ve ever had (to date) in my life was offered at Cannon’s Steak House in Washington, D.C., no longer in business, and obtained through the services of a Nebraska Member of Congress. While we had sources for beef, including some from Omaha, Cannon’s always was the best and would sell us a case on request. Till Christmas Day, they were unequaled in my mind. Well, dear friends, your beef puts them all to shame. Both my wife and I believe your beef is the finest tasting beef we’ve encountered in our lifetime. -Mark; Polson, MT.
I’m too selfish to become a vegan, but I just can’t justify continuing to enjoy meat (or eggs or dairy) from concentration-camp farm animals. Whole Foods, the grocery store in this area that is supposedly interested in such issues, says that their beef is in a feedlot for a maximum of one third of their life. That is not exactly an inspiring standard for a company that I thought was something of an industry leader on this issue. Where are all the other Aldersprings of the world? –Anne; Philadelphia, PA
We just received the order, thank you so much! The subscription is working out great for us! It makes it more convenient to buy a month a time and not have to think about. I would highly recommend this to anyone in the market for healthy, amazing, humane beef! My family is beyond thankful for Alderspring, and we could never imagine eating any beef other than yours! Oh, your customer service has always been outstanding as well!!! Thank you! -Jenelle: Costa Mesa, CA
Dear Glenn and Caryl: My package arrived in great shape still frozen solid! The beef looks wonderful. Thank you so much for what you do and your kind treatment of the animals. It means a great deal to my family and myself. – Sherri, Phoenix AZ
Just wanted you to know I thought grass fed beef tasted terrible until I tried yours. I’m so glad I found you!!! -Diane; Stevensville, MT
