Our Purpose

Our purpose at Red Timber Ranch is to produce the best food in the world. We aim to achieve that goal by raising animals the way they were created to live. Cattle range on a highly nutritious, diversified pasture, where they are 100% grass fed through the finishing phase. We utilize Holistically Managed Grazing, moving the herd daily to a new pasture, to assure a healthy lifestyle and stable growth of the animal, creating better beef for the customer. Pigs are entitled to enjoy a far greater amount of space than industrial confinement animals, and are fed as much apples, pears, and forages as can be provided to supplement their grain diet.

We are constantly working towards creating a more sustainable farm, and while our journey is not complete, there is a clear vision of a farm that will rival any other for sustainability and regenerative techniques.

Thank you for visiting our website, and please consider Red Timber Ranch, your local, sustainable, high quality beef and pork.
