We’re a network of forward-thinking ranchers united by a common philosophy: Leave the land better than you found it.
Over the past 36 years, Country Natural Beef has grown to become the largest ranching cooperative in the western US. Our 100 members — and counting — in 9 states represent the best of the West. Over the years, we’ve honed practices that improve soil, protect streams, draw more carbon dioxide out of the air, and raise healthy, happy cows across 6.5 million acres. By managing every part of the system synergistically — soil, water, plants and animals — we work with Mother Nature rather than against her. You can see the difference on the landscape, and you can taste the difference on your plate.
A lot has changed since 1986. Rangelands are drier, water is scarcer, and the climate is changing fast. Caring for the land, air and water must become the norm rather than the exception, and that’s what we’re doing with regenerative ranching. The future of our communities, our food systems and rural economies — here in the West and around the world — depend on a new way of operating, and that’s Grazewell.
Whether you raise beef, eat it or sell it, we welcome you to the Country Natural Beef community. Together, we can create a better, more sustainable future for the land, for cattle and for ourselves.
Robust in flavor, our beef outclasses the meat you find in your local grocery store. Our cattle are raised the way nature intended... grass fed on the pasture. They are never administered antibiotics or growth stimulants, and they graze on the grassy farmland where they spend their lives. Country Natural Beef was born of a desire to make naturally raised beef available to you. We are your personal butcher, and you can taste the difference in every beefy bite.
Country Natural Beef is deeply committed to sustainability. Our ranchers know that it is absolutely imperative to generations to come that we leave the farmland better than we found it. We do so by monitoring and maintaining soil and water quality allowing the land to be nourished and thrive with a continued abundance of forage. And, it doesn't stop there. We ship our products in compostable material so you can feel good about your purchase.
for Family Ranches
Ranching is undoubtedly a challenging and unpredictable job. We aim to offer stability. The Country Natural Beef co-op was shaped to support financial health for our ranchers, as well as the rural communities in which they live. 100% owned by our rancher-members, all profits go directly back to them. They are invested financially, physically, and emotionally in their small communities and neighbors which, in turn, helps sustain these rural areas.
Our cattle are raised out on the pasture as they should be. They are never subjected to the feedlot life. The beef you get from Country Natural Beef has never been administered antibiotics or growth stimulants, and their living environment is safe and enriched with acres upon acres to roam. They are provided a healthy diet consisting of hay, grass, and forage from pastures. They are later placed on a non-GMO, 100% vegetarian finishing ration. You can feel good about the beef you eat!
