Ryan and Andrea Stark, owners of AH Farms, began building their cattle heard in 2006.
AH stands for Amarugia Highlands, which is located an hour south of Kansas City, Missouri. A large portion of this area has been converted into the Amarugia Highlands Conservation Area and is now managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation. This area is rich in native wildlife and it reflects one of AH Farms' core principals: economically and ethically raised cattle.
Not long after starting AH Farms, Ryan and Andrea realized they were not satisfied with the quality of meat available in grocery stores. Because of this, they decided they wanted to be able to provide consumers with a better option.
Today, their dream is to provide excellent, healthy beef to families just like theirs.
Founded in 1945 in the heart of Brawley, California, Brandt Beef is a family-owned and -operated ranch dedicated to bringing you quality, 100% source-verified, natural beef. Today, Bill Brandt and his sons Eric and Mark manage the operation, which includes the ranch, 600 acres of alfalfa, Sundangrass, and Bermudagrass to support it, and global sales and distribution.
Our practices include feeding our cattle a 100% vegetarian diet free of hormones and beta-agonists and strict standards for animal welfare and sustainability. It's these daily acts of responsibility that ensure both our animals and our environment will be as healthy as possible for our generation and for generations to come.
The Swickard Family has been ranching in Susanille, Cali. since 1852, first settling in the Santa Clara Valley. The family made the move north to Susanville in 1959 where they established Five Dot Land & Cattle Co.
“We are committed to providing the best tasting beef California has to offer while working closely to promote stewardship of the land in a sustainable, environmentally conscious manner," says Todd Swickard, CEO of Five Dot Ranch.
Located in high-desert Nevada, Perigo Hay & Cattle is a ranching and farming operation that prides itself on producing high quality beef and alfalfa. Perigo Cattle strongly believes in the power of good genetics in their herds. They pride themselves on taking excellent care of their animals.
TUCKER FAMILY BEEF
The Tucker family runs five generations deep. "Tuckered" away in Sweetwater, Okla., Granny T (97) lives on the same farm in the same house that her and her husband Earl bought when he came back from WWII. Their son Tommy and his wife Nelda along with Monte, Danielle, Reed and Mason raise cattle.
Tucker Family Beef has been been offering their beef to consumers since 2003. They believe that good cattle + good feed + good care = a good eating experience for consumers. They say there's nothing more rewarding than hearing from customers that it's the best steak they've ever had!
The original Vera Earl Ranch was founded by our grandfather Burton Beck in 1968. It was run, and still is, as a cow calf operation comprised of rolling grasslands and mountains. In 1977 Burton Beck unfortunately passed away and the ranch continued to be run by his wife Bettie Ann Beck until her passing in 1999. Mrs. Beck continued her husband’s dream remaining on the ranch and continued to run the ranch as a cow calf operation and furthered his quarter horse operation.
