Backbone Farm

100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef from our small family farm on the Hector backbone.

We move our herd of 20 black Angus cows twice a day to fresh, organically managed, native forages spiced with walnut and wild apple silvopastures. Our calves are born on pasture and raised with their moms. Our regenerative work to grow healthy grasses and happy cows produces wholesome, nutritious food.
