This story goes back generations, when a lot of these rancher’s families first came to the Deer Creek Watershed. They’ve taken such good care of their land that Deer Creek is one of the last three remaining streams that support Spring Run Chinook salmon. Many ranchers shudder at the thought of being neighbors with an endangered species; those in Deer Creek embraced it. They helped form the Deer Creek Watershed Conservancy, and came up with projects to restore the creek channel, increase riparian habitat, and reduce flooding. Some have even offered to give up chunks of their land to setback levees and widen the creek channel. The only compensation they’ve sought is irrigation improvements to grow enough grass to make up for the land that they’ve lost. And that’s just a few of their projects. Click here to learn more.
So enough about the story, what about the steak? The same folks that put that much care and management into their land do no less by their animals. The beef you’re getting has had no subtheraputic antibiotics or hormones. Ever. They have been raised on pasture from start to finish, with maybe some locally raised hay when conditions deemed necessary. If you have a question about your beef, ask us. We can put you in touch with the folks who knew it, grew it and brought it to you.
Every time you buy Deer Creek beef, you don’t just get delicious, healthy, dry-aged-to-perfection meat that you can feel good about feeding your family. You support local family farmers, help restore California’s salmon fishery, help reduce local flooding impacts, and keep landowners and environmental interests working together to protect and enhance our local natural resources. That’s a pretty good box of beef.
