JX Ranch raises your grass-fed, grass-finished, and 21-days dry-aged lean beef from birth to consumption. They are never fed any grains or corn and do not receive added growth hormones, antibiotics, steroids, animal bi-products, or insecticides.

Our cattle graze their entire lives on our native pastures managed using holistic range management principles. We handle them slowly and quietly, which reduces stress that could affect the quality of your meat. We harvest them at 12–17 months, which results in lean, tender and flavorful meat without all the fat of a more mature animal.

For great savings and to keep your freezer stocked, order your custom-cut quarter, half or whole beef starting at $8 per pound. This price includes everything: lifelong grazing on our ranch, transportation to the butcher (we pay the butcher, you do not), 3 weeks dry-aging, all cuts packaged and individually labeled, and, if you live in New Mexico, free delivery in the fall to Las Vegas, Santa Fe, Edgewood (near Albuquerque) or Alamogordo.

If freezer space is limited, try a 10–30 pound Beef Pack which ships UPS. We deliver these year-round to various locations throughout New Mexico.

My husband Tom and I own and operate the 7,000-acre JX Ranch in eastern New Mexico, along the rugged escarpment known as the Caprock. We are proud recipients of the following grazing awards:

  • Society for Range Management Excellence in Range Management Award
  • Holistic Management International Grazing Award
  • Goodyear/NACD Conservation Awards – Award of Merit for Outstanding Accomplishments in Resource Conservation.

Try JX Ranch Natural Beef and join our satisfied customers!

“There is a reason that I drive 450 miles for your beef. Your beef is simply the very best tasting grass fed beef that I have ever had. And believe me, I have searched for beef of equal quality in both Arizona and Oregon, but nothing can match your beef. Incredibly good flavor. Every time I cook even a hamburger, I am just amazed at how much better the flavor is than other beef I have had."

“Mimi, I’m glad I remembered to re-order before you were sold out. I sure loved the beef I purchased last year and can’t thank you enough for continuing to provide such a good and important product. I like eating healthy and have tried other grass fed beef but none that compares to yours.”

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!

Range Raised • USDA Inspected Processing • Locally Grown and Raised

Ortiz Ranch is a small family-owned and operated business located about 140 miles east of Albuquerque. We specialize in selling grass-fed natural beef (on-the-hoof) to quality-minded customers in the area. If you have neither a trailer to haul the animal nor arrangements for butchering, for additional cost we can take care of these tasks for you by transporting the animal to a licensed processing facility nearby. Then you can arrange to pick up the frozen labeled packaged meat from the processor, or for additional cost, we can deliver the meat to you.

These steers are healthy and wholesome—no crowded feedlots, no antibiotics or growth hormones—they are relaxed free range pasture-fed animals. The meat is absolutely delicious. We believe that after you have bought one, you will want to purchase another one each year for your annual supply of beef. We ask prospective customers to call or e-mail us about prices and specific arrangements. We will reply to e-mail inquiries with a copy of our details and price list.

We also sell farm-fresh eggs, and small quantities of garden produce in season.

Shepherd's Lamb is a family operation that grows Certified Organic lamb in the old tradition, moving with the seasons. This allows the ewes and lambs access to fresh feed at all times and ensures the long-term good health of the range.

Lambs are born on the spring range, and then the band is trailed to high mountain pastures where they graze all summer on lush native mountain grasses, forbs, and shrubs.

Our product is available year round in limited quantities. We sell whole, half or individual cuts of lamb at Farmers Markets, to natural food stores, and to restaurants in New Mexico, and by mail order to anywhere else! Orders can be placed by phone or e-mail. See our website for more details.
