Owner Fred Stiles comes from a family of cattle ranchers, dairy farmers, veterinarians, and butchers.

Not only is the meat lean and flavorful, but the cattle themselves have a reduced impact on the environment when compared with typical conventional breeds. On average, they weigh nearly 400 pounds less than conventional breeds, meaning that they cause less damage to soft or muddy areas. Their grazing habits also diminish the presence of weeds without harming the native bunch grasses.
