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 Company 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 Honeyman Stores” in Prescott and Prescott Valley.

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 ByProducts ever, for the life of the animal, as independently varied by TechniTrack, LLC. Kim is also a Beef Quality Assurance (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.

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.

Our cattle forage for their own feed all through the year, and when selling time comes they are finished on irrigated pasture. They have never—and will never—know a feedlot or taste grain, soy or corn. Antibiotics and hormones have no place on our ranch because of our healthy and practiced grazing methods. 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!

In July, we have peaches to pick and in September, apples in our old family orchard. (Visit our website for more info.)

Our ranch is totally run on solar power, keeping in tune with our goal of sustainability. Local, sustainable, holistic. Date Creek Ranch – From our pasture to your plate.

Gryphon Ranch LLC, located south of Globe, Arizona, proudly offers naturally raised, grass-fed, grass-finished Scottish Highland or Angus beef. Gryphon Ranch is the only source of Highland meat in Arizona.

Highland beef is naturally lower in fat and cholesterol, while still tender and delicious. Your beef is born, raised, and butchered here. They get natural grazing in the picturesque mountains and canyons, additional alfalfa hay, fresh mineral spring water, and of course that gorgeous Arizona sunshine. 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 had no comparison to a grocery store tomato?

Your beef is humanely slaughtered at the ranch so there is no stress to the animal. We are inspected annually and Certified Humane Raised and Handled, carry the Quality Highland Beef endorsement from the American Highland Cattle Association, and Certified Grassfed by the American Grassfed Association.

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!

Due to state and federal laws, we can sell only by the full or half animal because your beef never leaves our ranch until it is in the white package with you.

Remember that we guarantee your beef — if you don't like it for any reason, 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.
