So What is “Wild Wellness”? Beyond Grass Fed Organic Beef
At Alderspring, we have pioneered a grazing method we call “inherding.” Using ancient herding techniques, we live with our cattle 24/7 on 72 square miles of certified organic unfenced wild mountain pastures, accomplishing regenerative organic objectives while producing genuinely wild organic grass fed beef. You won’t find a comparable source of wild protein anywhere in the world.

Food Writer Ian Brown, when tasting our ribeye just after a Japanese wagyu: “The wagyu, however rich, was as good a steak as I have ever eaten. But the grass fed rib-eye is a revelation…The Idaho steak has the middle, the robustness of the wagyu, but without the fattiness; it also tastes, unmistakably, like beef…The complexity of the grass fed steak becomes greater, not less, with each chew.”
-The Globe and Mail, 2010
Celebrated author Mark Schatzker traveled the world looking for the best beef. He found it at Alderspring Ranch.
