Aravaipa's Painted Cave Cattle Company - 100% Grass Fed, Local Beef

Our operation is based at Painted Cave Ranch, located only 70 miles northeast of Tucson and bordered by the beautiful Aravaipa Canyon and the San Carlos Apache Reservation. The ranch is managed by the Hill family who have been in Arizona since the 1800s and have always valued holistic and environmentally friendly practices.

When asked why we have never used pesticides, herbicides, steroids or hormones, our answer is quite simple. Our forefathers never needed to use them, so why should we? This principle of knowing the land and recognizing what the land needs, allows our practice of providing sustainable healthy beef from nurtured and healthy land.

Our goal is to maintain and improve the native species composition, diversity and structure for the desired plant communities needed to protect the land and to maintain the long-term health and varieties of the indigenous wildlife populations. Diverse wildlife include Desert Big Horn Sheep, Coatimundi, Javelina, Black Bear, Mule Deer and White Tail Deer, Lowland Leopard Frogs, Sonoran Desert Tortoise, Mountain Lion and, of course, Coyote.

Everything we do must meet this test: Does this action support the ecosystem with sustainable results?

Our ranch covers almost 30 square miles and contains five unique biomes. As stewards of this resource, we are committed to preserving its complete biological diversity.

Broken Horn D Ranch is located in Prescott, AZ. Dave Pawel and Kim McElroy raise Corriente cattle and produce USDS Process Verified Grass Fed, Criollo beef.

All the beef comes from animals born and raised on the ranch, spending their days in range pastures grazing on native grasses and browse. Cattle are handled quietly from horseback and are processed locally at Perkinsville Processing in Chino Valley, an ADA-inspected slaughter facility. Beef is available on the hoof, whole, or half carcass. Individual cuts are for sale at the ranch, delivered locally and at the Prescott Farmers Market.

Criollo beef comes from cattle of Spanish origin. These cattle are especially well adapted to the hot, arid Arizona climate. Their muscle fibers are fine, like buffalo or elk, making the meat tender and incredibly delicious.

All Broken Horn D Ranch Criollo beef is USDA Process Verified Grass Fed, No hormones, No antibiotics, and No animal by products ever, for the life of the animal. Kim is also a BQA Certified Producer, further verifying the ranch operates by the highest industry standards for humane handling and care of the cattle. Dave and Kim are passionate about their cattle (and horses), and being good stewards of the land.

Chiracahua Pasture Raised Meats. Anya Owens at A Bar H Farms has retired from production. Josh Koehn, her business partner of several years, is now owner of the grass fed meat company along with his wife Tara. Josh and Tara are raising all the livestock on their farm in Kansas Settlement, Arizona. The name has changed but our products have not. They remain beef, lamb, whole roasting chickens, eggs and holiday turkeys. Whole and half beeves and whole lambs are available along with the individual beef and lamb cuts.

Josh and I have been like-minded producers who are passionate about offering the best natural product we can. It remains Josh’s intent to raise tender, tasty and healthy meat and eggs. He raises cattle and sheep as ruminants were meant to be raised, without corn, grain distillery products or hormones and antibiotics. Our beef and lamb are on green pastures all of their lives. The cattle and sheep are supplemented as needed with hay that is raised and stockpiled on Josh's farm.

The poultry roam freely on irrigated pastures and are provided shade, water, dry feed and protection. Josh makes his own chicken feed that combines with the grasses to provide a well-balanced ration. By making his own feed, he is assured that it is free of additives, genetically modified products and animal by-products.

Our products are directly marketed to individuals, buying groups, Consumer Supported Agriculture (CSA) groups and farmer market vendors in Sierra Vista, Bisbee, Phoenix and Tucson. Our direct marketing routes for Phoenix and Tucson are on our web site.

Josh welcomes visitors to his farm. We feel consumers benefit from knowing how their food is raised and who raises it.

Gryphon Ranch LLC, located in the scenic Pinal Mountains south of Globe, Arizona, proudly offers all naturally raised, grass-fed, grass-finished Scottish Highlander beef and Brangus beef.

Give us a call or email us! We encourage you to visit the ranch to see how your beef is raised. Scottish Highlander beef is naturally lower in fat and cholesterol, while still tender and delicious; the Brangus run a bit larger and have more marbling.
Your beef is humanely slaughtered at the ranch so there is no stress to the animal. We are proud to be nationally certified humane raised and handled, and to carry the Quality Highland Beef endorsement from the American Highland Cattle Association. Your beef is born, raised, and butchered here. They get natural grazing in the mountains and canyons, additional alfalfa hay, fresh spring water and of course Arizona sunshine. There is no GMO, corn, antibiotics or growth hormones. 

Your beef is dry-aged at 34–37 degrees F. for a minimum of two weeks to ensure maximum tenderness. Only then is your beef cut and wrapped YOUR way – 100% to order by a state-licensed mobile butcher. The price includes everything – no extras, no surprises! We charge by the hanging weight which is the weight after the animal is butchered without head, horns, hide or organs. Typically, a Highlander is around 400 pounds hanging weight; the Brangus runs slightly larger. We can sell only by the full, half or quarter animal because your beef never leaves our ranch until it is in the white package with you. All our animals are inspected before butchering by the State of Arizona Brand inspector.

Please let us know if you want the bones and/or any of the organ meat; they are included at no extra cost to you. Please reserve your beef early since we tend to sell out each year. A $100 nonrefundable deposit holds your reservation. Remember that it takes almost 3 years to grow an animal to be ready for you.

Once you have enjoyed Highlander beef you will be spoiled. Ask us for a free package to taste. Highlander grass-fed beef has a different flavor than store-bought – you are tasting real beef! We guarantee your beef – if you don't like it we will take it back and reimburse you for what you return.

ME Cattle, LLC. – From our Family’s Range to Your Table

As sixth generation ranchers in Southeastern Arizona, we make it our priority to raise superior quality range-raised beef. Our cow/calf operation passed down through the ages allows us to trace back our herd over 100 years earlier to the original cattle ranch purchased by our family who came here by wagon from Texas in the early 1900s. This means that not only are we claiming quality on “this beef,” but on a long line of cattle over the generations.

We strive to uphold integrity in the beef we raise by keeping our cattle free of antibiotics, steroids, hormones and corn, and allow them to live in a low-stress environment of sunshine and plentiful feed. Our cattle are fed off the land from native grasses that have been untreated or tampered with.

Because of the strong immune systems these cows develop being in their natural element, consuming a large variety of grasses, plants, weeds, and browse acceptable to their pallet and beneficial to their diet, and dwelling with equally healthy cattle also means that not only are antibiotics not used but not needed! These things make up what we like to call, the range-raised difference.

We are committed to serving you a better beef for a better way of living!

Milky Ranch is a family-oriented operation, combining old and new practices in the livestock business to create a responsible, profitable, environmentally friendly and sustainable business while trying to preserve the family farm and ranching way of life.

Our beef comes from our Angus/Hereford cross herd that grazes the 90 square miles of open range known as the Milky Ranch. These cattle are born and raised on our ranch, and spend the duration of their lives grazing in a stress-free and natural environment. 

We believe that the seasonal abundances of native grasses and browse, including blue grama, black grama, sacaton, needle and thread, rice grass, gaeta, chamisa and white sage provide an ideal slow growing nutritional base to produce quality grassfed beef. No growth supplements, steroids,hormones or antibiotics are used. We are not certified organic, however are practices would qualify our product as such.

When ready to be harvested, our animals are locally processed at a facility that uses humane slaughtering procedures and is inspected by the Arizona Department of Agriculture. All beef is dry-aged for seven days, then packaged and hard-frozen. Our packaged beef is free of antibiotics and hormones, raised in the most natural way possible. We offer individual cuts as well as whole, half and quarters of beef. We deliver to the Show Low / Pinetop area.

San Rafael Valley Natural Beef

100% Grass-Fed is Naturally 100% Organic.

Angus-Hereford cattle are raised in one of the last intact short-grass prairies in the Western US. Towering cottonwoods and riverbeds meander through the high Sonoran grasslands that gently roll across the valley floor. These cattle eat native Arizona grasses and drink pure water drawn up by windmill from the Coronado Forest Aquifer and watershed that become the headwaters of the Santa Cruz River. At 5000 feet, the ranch is in the heart of the valley, arguably the most beautiful cattle country in Arizona.

All orders are customized, no minimums and customer selections are based on availability. Animals are harvested regularly to keep all orders fresh. Meat is dry aged for 21 days. All cutting, packaging and deliveries are overseen by the owner to maintain the highest standards possible. 

These animals never see a feed-lot, never get hormones or antibiotics. Customers are encouraged to visit the ranch with family and friends.

You are welcome to visit www.srvbeef.com but all orders are done directly by phone or email.
