Edmundson Ranches is comprised of Beaver and Kathy, Ty and I and our family and Chad and Natalie and their family. We ranch near Walsenburg, CO on around 80,000 acres and Chad and Natalie are set up on another ranch near Sugar City, CO of around 16,000 acres. We have around 1000 cattle split between the two ranches.
Our grass-fed beef program is only a small part of our overall ranch operation, but one that we enjoy the most. It allows us to directly connect with so many wonderful families around Colorado. We thoroughly enjoy getting to partner with these families year after year and are honored that they entrust us with their family's beef supply!
Many years ago, a few of our four young children were diagnosed with multiple food allergies. This is when we began our quest for more wholesome food and really focused on healthy meat. It became a difficult endeavor to find whole foods free of additives and preservatives. We became frequent shoppers at natural food stores and though we were able to find natural meats, we continued to wonder just "what was in that meat?" Were there preservatives of any sort... I just didn't know for sure. We realized, with the loose regulations around natural and grass-fed meats, that we were putting a lot of trust into meat labels.
Although we had, through the years, butchered our own beef here and there, we did rely on grocery-store meat when we would run out. We realized that not only did we have beef in our own "backyards", but we had beef that we knew everything about! We knew where our cattle had grazed, what they had or had not been fed and whether or not they had received antibiotics. That knowledge was priceless to us.
We knew then, that we raised the healthiest option for our own family
and we wanted to offer you and yours the same healthy beef!
And that was the beginning of our grass-fed beef venture.
