We (Chris and Jackie Flanigan) understand what a privilege it is to work with the land and animals. We always take the extra step to make sure our cattle are well cared for and not put under any unnecessary stress.
We strongly believe in pasture raised meat.
There is a big difference between pasture-raised meat and industrially produced meat. Pasture-raised animals spend their time eating vegetation, unconfined and have a quality of life the way it was before factory farming.
The Big Lost River Ranch is located in the heart of the Big Lost Valley where the highest peaks of Idaho are the backdrop and Big Lost River runs through our ranch.
All our cows and calves spend the summer and fall grazing on our range in surrounding mountains. They always have a cowboy/cowgirl riding alongside them, checking on their health and safety (many days it’s Chris and myself).
If this is your first rodeo tasting Big Lost Beef, you are in for a treat.
Our beef goes from our ranch in the Big Lost Valley, to the local butcher, then delivered to your door. When meat is raised right, it tastes better than any beef you have ever had.
Our cattle spend the summer on the range where they will eat from pristine mountain pastures with a mixture of native grasses, wildflowers and other forages. When they return home, they are finished with a GMO free mixture of barley, peas and alfalfa. This special finish is why the flavor of our beef stands out.
