Our story is simple and began at the dinner table.
We’re parents who want to feed our families the highest quality real food that is raised in a way that is making the earth healthy again.
We began raising our own meats so we could know what it is we’re eating, where it came from, and how it was raised.
We wanted to be sure about something else too. We wanted to be sure the meats we were eating were contributing to the health of the earth. We wanted more wildlife, more plant diversity, less erosion, and no pollution.
What started as a means to provide clean, nutritious food for our family quickly grew to a business with hundreds of families each sharing our commitment to family health and thoughtfully raised food that was making the earth a better place while giving our animals an amazing life too.
And honestly, Parker Pastures was really born when our friends and neighbors insisted on buying the delicious, organic, mountain meadow-raised, 100% grass-fed beef and lamb we were raising to feed our family!
Abundance and health, that's what we believe in. And that is why we choose to raise organic, high mountain, 100% grass-fed beef and lamb in a way that creates healthy land, healthy animals, and healthy people.
We raise our beef and lamb in the lush, high mountain Gunnison Valley on the Western Slope of Colorado. We believe this location, and our careful care of our land and animals, allow us to produce the finest grass-fed meats in the world.
You see, Bill and I both grew up in the Gunnison Valley, and we were both born with a passion for healthy lands and humanely raised animals.
We spent many years away studying organic grass-fed livestock production, ecology, soil science, (w)holistic management, health, and regenerative agriculture. Then in 2006, after the birth of our 2nd child, we knew it was time to move back to the emerald enchanted valley of our youth.
Our organic & holistic approach to land and animal care, produces AMAZING grass-fed meats that you can feel good about feeding your family too!
We are excellent stewards of the earth, promote life in all forms, produce healthy grass-fed meats in a way that regenerates the land, supports an excellent quality of life for our community, and we have absolute honesty and integrity in all of our relationships.
