AZ Grass Raised Beef Company is 100% Arizona grass-raised and grass-finished beef. Our cows forage for their own food their entire lives. They are never given hormones, antibiotics, or grain or spend a minute on a feedlot.
Our cattle graze in the Arizona sun all year on naturally occurring grasses, water and flowers while roaming millions of acres of ranchlands. We manage our cattle on horseback and rely on windmills and solar power systems to ensure our sustainable ranch practices. The result to our customers is a taste of AZ sunshine with every delicious bite!
What makes our company unique is that we own our very own USDA harvesting plant where we humanely fabricate all our beef. Integrity and accountability are important to us, so in addition to being USDA inspected, we are also third-party verified through the America Grassfed Association. We stand by our claims and want to assure customers that their expectations of what our beef is can be trusted as we navigate through the grass-fed revolution.
In addition to providing our customers with a variety of beef options because we have our own USDA inspected harvesting plant, we have the unique ability to hand fabricate and utilize our bone spectrum to produce what we believe to be the most gelatinous, nutrient-dense, never pasteurized bone broth in the world.
Our products are available online at https://azgrassraisedbeef.com/shop/, retail at Natural Grocers, Arcadia Meat Market, Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market and various food service and retail distributors such as Albert’s Organic.

Broken Horn D Ranch is located in Prescott, AZ. Dave Pawel and Kim McElroy raise purebred Corriente cattle and produce USDA 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, as well as irrigated pastures. Cattle are handled quietly from horseback and are processed locally at Perkinsville Meat Processing in Chino Valley, an ADA-inspected slaughter facility. Beef is available for custom processing; whole, or half carcass. Individual cuts are for sale at the ranch, delivered locally and at the Prescott Farmers Market and Chino Valley 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, as independently varied by TechniTrack, LLC. 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.

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

Date Creek Ranch, established in 1966, is a family-owned and operated working cattle ranch in the middle of the Sonoran and Mojave deserts. Our cattle are born and raised on the land, working with us to better our soil and ecosystem. We have grass-fed and grass-finished beef, pastured chicken, pastured pork, and grass-fed lamb available online for delivery each month.

We work hand-in-hoof with our animals to sequester carbon, keep a nutrient-dense soil, and provide Arizona families with rich flavor and quality you can trust.
All of our animals intermingle to keep a healthy ecosystem for native plants and wildlife. We pride ourselves in providing for our community!

There is no GMO, corn, antibiotics or growth hormones. Guaranteed.
We encourage you to visit the ranch to see how your beef is raised and get a free sample to take home and enjoy. Once you have enjoyed Highland beef you will be spoiled. Remember that warm from the vine tomato you bit into that has no comparison to a grocery store tomato?

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!

Angus-Hereford cattle are raised in one of the last

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,
