We raise All-Natural grass fed or grain finished cattle free of additives, chemicals, antibiotics, and growth hormones.
All of our cattle are born on the prairies of South Thurston County in the spring and range free on our acreage. When the fields are dry enough the cattle are moved down the hill to the lush green pastures of the Deschutes River Valley where they graze and roam in beautiful pastures and are always handled with care.
We believe in being responsible stewards of the land and using sustainable, humane methods. Therefore, we do “rotational grazing” which not only allows us to maintain healthy pastures but also allows our cattle to graze on the most nutrient rich part of the grass. Since we are on the banks of the Deschutes River, the yearly flooding of our fields ensures an endless supply of natural minerals and nutrient rich soil. The grass is managed through a combination of grazing and haying. We then feed the cattle the hay during the winter months.
Another reason to buy Nelson Ranch beef…Did you hear that 70% of hamburger bought in grocery stores has pink slime? We have hamburger available now if you would like to know your beef has no pink slime. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
