Fort Causeway is a draft horse powered family farm located just east
of Lovell, Wyoming, nestled against the Big Horn Mountains. Homesteaded five years ago, we built the infrastructure and now farm on 80 flood-irrigated acres using gravity gated pipe.
We do our best to farm using some of the newest technology and equipment available in draft animal powered farming. Our family of six raises pastured pork, poultry, laying hens, dorper and katahdin lambs, and a few beef.
We also utilize a few resident milk cows whose products serve our family, improve our pigs, and are supplied as pet food for others interested. Our pastures are rotated intensively, and contain many varieties of grasses and legumes. In addition, we supply all of our meat animals with 6-day-old green sprouted fodder year round for fantastic nutrition, taste, and consistency through all seasons. This fodder system also allows us to provide certified organic feed, and increases stocking rates without stressing our pastures.
The animals are well protected from predators by our Great Pyrenees livestock
guardian dogs; puppies are available from time to time, started in training as family loving livestock guard dogs.
We follow organic and natural practices, though have not yet pursued
Certified Organic status. No pesticides or herbicides have been used on the property for several years.
We grow a variety of produce in season, as well as raspberries, chokecherries, plums, and buffaloberries. We may look into CSA options in the future, for those interested.
We work, train, and sell a few outside teams of draft horses per year, in addition to regularly working our own draft horse rescues.
Four foxtrotter saddle horses are available for local trail rides in the Big Horn or Pryor Mountains.
We offer grass finished animals live, or processed through local USDA inspected facilities, and are willing to ship.

Meadow Maid Foods, LLC grass-fed
beef is produced for the heart, from the heart.
Our beeves are raised from birth to processing on
a single ranch is southeastern Wyoming, with respect for the cattle,
and in harmony with nature. Cattle graze on native and irrigated pastures
year-round, without feed supplements. (Rarely, we supplement with hay
during a severe winter storm.) Many people are surprised to learn that
cattle can graze year-round in Wyoming, until we point out that the deer
and antelope have done so for millennia.
Pastures and animals are free from pesticides, herbicides,
added growth hormones, and antibiotic applications. Stress is minimized
by calving in sync with nature, and animal-handling facilities are based
on a low-stress Temple Grandin design. Beef is processed at an owner-operated,
custom, USDA-inspected facility, aged for tenderness, and vacuum-packaged
to maintain quality.
Quality grass-fed beef is available year-round,
directly from Meadow Maid Foods, and at the Food Co-op, 205 E Mountain
Avenue, Fort Collins, CO. We hope to offer mail-order beef by Summer

Touchstone Angus offers grass
finished beef raised entirely on our ranch near Lusk,
Wyoming. We have worked many years to identify angus
cattle that are inherently capable of consistently producing
tender beef within a grass/forage only diet. This hard
to find genetic tenderness combined with the special
quality of the native grass diet available on the open ranges of
Wyoming sets Touchstone grass finished beef apart in taste.
Our beef is not certified as organic due to the
time and money necessary for the process. Nonetheless, the beef has no
added hormones and no antibiotics are fed. The cattle are raised on native
pastures that are not sprayed with herbicides or farmed.
Touchstone beef is sold in whole, halves and quarters
(half of a half). The beef is processed at a USDA inspected
plant in Elizabeth Colorado where it can be picked up frozen or
stored in a locker at Elizabeth, Colorado. We can ship beef as well
if you live outside the Denver area and are unable to pick it up.

in a very humane and dignified manner. Our philosophy is Healthy Land

quarters, and custom orders. All of our beef has been raised here on
the ranch so we are certain that it contains no antibiotics, steroids,
hormones, or animal by-products. We strongly believe in our product which
