Sweet Grass Beef
Sweet Grass Cooperative is comprised of ranchers who have a passion for the Western tradition of family-owned ranches. They have a passion for the land, for the animals, and for the well-being of their families and their communities.
While many of the ranches are certified organic, all of the ranches raise grass-fed, grass-finished animals in a manner that is good for the land and consistent with the humane treatment of animals. Cattle are meant to eat grass, and the cattle of the Sweet Grass Cooperative do just that; they are left to graze the lush grasses of the Western ranges and are never sent to feed lots.
Sweet Grass Cooperative markets and sells these animals to local markets, like La Montanita Co-op.
Sweet Grass Cooperative started in the spring of 2010. They humanely raise cattle on pristine pastures in New Mexico and Colorado and are never fed grain. The beeves are processed in Colorado in a small plant.
