Backbone Farm

100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef from our small family farm on the Hector backbone. We raise healthy perennial pastures and happy cows to produce wholesome, nutritious food.

We practice rotational grazing by moving our herd of 20 black Angus cows twice a day to fresh, native forages. We steadily work to regenerate our pastures, and walnut and wild apple silvopastures. Our calves are born on pasture, and raised with their moms and siblings — four generations! From birth to butcher, each animal lives under our care. Our pastures and animals are organically managed.
