At Meyer Natural Foods, the foundation for the future rests firmly on sustainable business principles dating back to the purchase and establishment of the Ranch in Helmville, Montana in 1990. Early on, management practices were designed to nourish and enhance the Ranch’s natural resources while respecting the needs of the environment.
Over time, over grazed native grasslands, forests, and meadows were brought back to a healthy state, and wildlife came back in abundance. Meyer Natural Foods is dedicated to maintaining these wholesome business principles exemplified in the early Ranch operations as we continue to expand into national and international markets.
From inception, breeding and raising protocols were initiated emphasizing the humane handling of cattle. We set guidelines that implemented new industry standards and optimal genetics for naturally raised beef.
Our cattle are strict vegetarians and forage naturally on native grasses, supplemented with vitamins and minerals to ensure optimal health. Pasture rotation is also practiced which allows for the regeneration of the soil. Our cattle drink fresh water from snow fed mountain streams and lakes.
A true, premium quality product is achieved by utilizing the Meyer philosophy of ethical attitudes toward the land and its precious wildlife.
Careful husbandry also ensures that humane animal treatment and sound land stewardship is good for the environment and business as well.
Based on solid principles, the growth of Meyer Company Ranch over the last 28 years is a testament to the importance of the sustainable business practices embodied in every aspect of the Meyer Natural Foods operations, from the Ranch to our customers tables.
