Gallagher Natural Beef and Produce
My husband and I, along with our 9 kids, have a cow/calf ranch in Clark, Wyoming. My husband was born and raised on a farm in Michigan and we have been farming/ranching together for 18+ years. We brought our passion for growing sweet corn out to Wyoming with us, and have been selling sweet corn at the surrounding area farmers markets and grocery stores for 8-9 years now. Through the sales of our sweet corn we have come to see the growing demand for high-quality foods in the area. We have brought our non-gmo, no pesticides or herbicide sweet corn to the markets and have had great feedback!
Through this increase demand of all natural, high quality meat products, we decided to take our NHTC certified calves, that we would sell in large amounts to area ranchers, and hold some back for consumers to buy as individual cuts or in quarters and halves. We took these calves after wiening them and introduced them to feed that has been raised by us, they have no outside feed/influence from anywhere other than our ranch. They graze on high-quality alfalfa/grass and then are given a conventional corn ration 8-9 weeks prior to finishing. We found that giving them this corn gives them a wonderful taste and great marbling in the steaks. We do not give our beef any hormones or antibiotics!
After two years of sales and getting rave reviews, we decided to offer pork cuts to consumers also. We knew the want for pork was there, but many people were leary to purchase it, having the concern of how it will taste and what it has been fed. We purchase our pigs from ranchers in the surrounding that following and use the same practices that we do. We get these piglets just after they are weined. Once we have them, they are kept in a very large, well kept area that is full of room to run and has constant access to food and fresh water. They are given a mineral in their feed (vitamins) that helps with their growth and overall health. They are fed conventional corn and they are never given any antibiotics or growth hormones! We strongly believe that by have a zero-stress environment available for all our animals, we will in turn have a great tasting product in the end. We know the importance of having a high-quality meat product that people can trust, if you would ever like to come see our ranch, we do allow people to come and see for themselves how the animals are cared for and our ranching practices.
