At 6,000 feet, our winters can be very hard on cattle (and people), so we typically move our cattle down-country where the climate is friendlier. We have relationships with other ranches in Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado where we winter our cattle. These ranches share our 100% grass-fed philosophy and commitment to the humane treatment of cattle.
Our main ranch in Idaho consists of approximately 5,000 acres of native grasses and irrigated pastures and is the base for all of our ranching activities. The ranch consists of a diverse palette of native grasses, legumes, and forbs as well as irrigated pasture grass and hay fields of grasses, alfalfa and clover. The ranch is situated on a bench above the Teton River Canyon, about 17 miles as the crow flies from Yellowstone National Park. It is host to dozens of species of songbirds, grouse, partridge, hawks, eagles and falcons, as well as migrating mule deer, elk and the occasional bear, coyote, and mountain lion. We have made it a point to operate in conjunction with our wild neighbors.
