WE RAISE HEALTHIER COWS, NATURALLY.
Montana is the best place on earth to raise high-quality black angus cattle. Everything we do on our ranch has a purpose: giving the innate genetic strengths and adaptations of these animals a chance to thrive.
From when our cows give birth, to what they eat, to how we support their maturation process and life cycle timeline — we let the animals do what they do best, naturally.
SUSTAINABLE LAND MANAGEMENT PRACTICES.
Our family ranch is at the forefront of regenerative agriculture, grazing our cattle based on Allan Savory's principles.
We are participating in a global movement, working to restore and strengthen the health of the world's grasslands through holistic management of our cattle and our landscapes.
GRASS-FED, PEA-FINISHED CATTLE.
Compared with typical corn-finished cows, our cattle mature at a slower, more natural pace and are given a full additional summer of grazing free on healthy Montana grass.
Yearlings are finished in Wickens Ranch feedlots with food-grade green and yellow peas, and garbanzo beans, grown and harvested by our neighbors. Finishing cattle on these local legumes creates a more delicious beef product, without ever sacrificing the animal's health.
DRY-AGED, VACUUM-SEALED, FLASH-FROZEN.
Our beef is butchered in independently-owned, USDA-inspected plants, here in Montana, where it dry-ages for 14 days. The aging process results in an intensified flavor and unbeatable tenderness. Then the meat is vacuum-sealed and flash-frozen to preserve its taste and juiciness, with the added benefits of safety, convenience, and less food waste. From there, it’s ready to ship directly to your freezer.
Local food re-imagined. Full confidence in the quality and integrity of the beef you feed your family. Our desire is to bring rural and urban back together over the dinner table, through beef you can trace, trust, and love to cook.
Through our platform you can have a personal connection with the source of your beef while enjoying the modern conveniences of online shopping and contactless home delivery.
GENERATIONAL RANCHERS WHO LOVE AND RESPECT THE LAND.
Humus and humanus — Latin for fertile ground and human — share their root word. Even in Hebrew, the name Adam translates to the man who was made from the ground. We believe the relationship between humans and the earth is ancient and vital — and remembering this relationship, protecting it through healthy agricultural practices, is necessary for humanity's shared wellbeing.
